RUFC - Ronnie misses out on striker

RUFC - Ronnie misses out on striker

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore has made no secret that he is on the look out for a striker to compliment Adam Le Fondre this season and when Pawel Abbott was released by Oldham the Millers boss became interested.

Unfortunately, it looks like the twenty-eight year old former Huddersfield striker is on his way to Charlton Athletic.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Moore said, 'We had a call saying that Oldham were going to let him go but that Charlton had offered £75,000 plus a substantial wage increase.

'It's disappointing but we'll just have to keep searching. We need an experienced striker who can blend with Adam Le Fondre.'

Abbott began his career with Preston North End and moved to Huddersfield Town in 2004 where he scored forty-four league goals in just over one hundred games. He played for Swansea City and Darlington before moving to Oldham last season where he was their top scorer with thirteen goals.

We seem to be missing out on quite a few strikers and I'm beginning to wonder if some don't want to come to play 'second fiddle' to Alfie - as Ronnie has made it quite clear that he wants someone who can feed our top scorer.
