CONTRACT: Reuben stays a Red for a second season

We are delighted to announce that striker Reuben Jerome has re-signed with the club for the 2021/22 season.

Jerome, 26, will be looking to make next term his first full campaign as a Red having joined us last summer.

The former Ramsbottom United forward netted seven goals in nine Northern Premier League games during his first season at Borough Park, making him the joint-top goalscorer in the North/West Division.

Speaking about re-signing, Jerome said: “I’m happy to get it all sorted early.

“It’s good to have something to look forward to, especially after everything that’s happened and to not have any uncertainty about where I’m going to be playing come the restart.”

Reuben scored an added-time winner against Clitheroe at Borough Park in October, one of two goals which he netted that night

Grainger added: “Reuben’s a goalscorer who’ll bring many goals to our team and I still don’t think we’ve seen the best of him.

“He could’ve easily moved to another club closer home but he wanted to stay and finish the job that he started here.

“He’s a born winner and really bought into the environment that we’ve got at the club.”
