Bio

WITH OVER 200 GOALS TO HIS NAME, IT WAS A NO-BRAINER FOR MOORS TO SIGN ADAM ROONEY ON 13 MARCH 2020.

It was at Stoke City where Rooney’s career began, and he became the club’s youngest ever hat-trick scorer on the last day of the 2005/06 season against Brighton & Hove Albion.

But in 2008, the striker's spell with the Potters came to an end and Rooney's next move took him north of the border where he starred for Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle. During his three years in Scotland, the Irishman was prolific, averaging more than a goal every three games - netting 53 times in just 120 games.

Such goalscoring form attracted the attention of Birmingham City. Rooney scored seven goals in 30 games for the Blues, including his maiden strike in Europe, the striker proving to be the matchwinner in a 1-0 Europa League victory over NK Maribor.

The season after Rooney was loaned out to Swindon, a move to Oldham followed before the striker found himself back in Scotland, signing for Aberdeen in 2014. During four years at Pittodire, the Republic of Ireland international was prolific, scoring 88 times in less than 200 appearances for the club.

He walked away with the SPL Golden Boot at the end of 2015/16 season having registered 28 times in total.

That highly successful spell saw Rooney once again return to England, this time for Salford City. It proved to be a smart move as the Ammies gained promotion to League Two after a victory in the 2018/19 play off final - the front man chipping in with 21 goals.

Moors will be hoping Rooney can repeat the feat ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and help the club achieve their goal of promotion to the football league.
