SIGNING: Rowe Becomes Fifth January Addition

16 January 2020

Oldham Athletic are excited to announce the signing of striker Danny Rowe from AFC Fylde for an undisclosed fee on an 18-month deal.

The prolific centre forward joined the Coasters in 2014, and in his first season with the club netted 35 times as they just missed out on promotion from the National League North. The following campaign, he finished top goalscorer with 31 in all competitions. 

In the 2016/17 season, Fylde finally secured promotion to the National League with Rowe impressively scoring 48 goals in 49 games whilst winning the National League North Player of the Season award.

During the Coasters first season in the National League, he scored 24 times in all competitions as well earning the Player of the Year award. He continued his remarkable goalscoring record into the 2018/19 season, this time notching up 27 goals and he won the Golden Boot as well as retaining Player of the Year award.

Also, last season Rowe created history as he scored the winning goal from a free-kick at Wembley in a 1-0 win over Leyton Orient to lift the FA Trophy.

Prior to his time at AFC Fylde, Rowe began his career at Manchester United before being released and going into non-league. He joined Fleetwood Town permanently in 2010 before enjoying a loan spell with Droylsden, scoring 12 in 23 games. The forward then arrived at Edgeley Park and netted eight goals in 15 matches for Stockport County.

The highly sought-after 30-year-old had spells with Barrow and Lincoln before putting pen-to-paper on a deal with AFC Fylde which went into its sixth season in total and in the process became their all-time top goalscorer with 192 goals in 293 games.

He will wear the number 56 shirt this season and is available for the game at the weekend.

Welcome to Latics, Danny!
