Ipswich Town are interested in prolific AFC Fylde striker Danny Rowe as reported by the East Anglian Daily Times.

The former Lincoln City forward has scored one hundred and eighty-two goals in two hundred and eighty-one games for the National League club. He’s out of contract in the summer and is now on the transfer list at the non-league outfit having told the club he wants to move on when his deal expires.

The report claims Ipswich are one of several clubs to have recently scouted Rowe, but while some have made offers, Ipswich are not yet at that stage.


Rowe’s career was drifting after mediocre spells a Lincoln, Stockport and Fleetwood but a move to Fylde in 2014 sparked him into life and the current National League Player of the Year has not looked back, becoming a legend at Mill Farm.

His scoring exploits have been crucial in the club’s rise from National League North to an established side at the highest level of the non-league pyramid. Indeed, Fylde were in touching distance of the EFL last season but ultimately lost the play-off final to Salford City at Wembley.

The twenty-nine-year-old is now thought to be looking for a fresh challenge and his first shot at the Football League.

Our View

Rowe was allegedly a member of a troublesome dressing room clique at Lincoln and never found his feet at Sincil Bank despite showing glimpses of his talent.

The move to Fylde saw him get his head down and perform and he deserves his chance in the EFL.

We feel League One may be a level too high and League Two is probably his level, but with his record, its no surprise outfits like Ipswich are considering taking a punt on the forward.

We are also pretty sure Jon Nolan will have provided Paul Lambert with a useful reference.
