Former Aberdeen striker Adam Rooney has moved back into the National League.

The former Pittodrie goal-machine left the Dons in the summer of 2018 to join Salford City. Backed by a host of football legends, Rooney joined that project whilst the club were in the National League, looking to ascend up the leagues.

They were promoted to League Two last season but now Rooney is back in England’s fifth tier. The 31-year old has joined Solihull Moors on a two-year deal.

His debut?

Moors had their game with Harrogate Town suspended yesterday after four Town players had been self-isolated with symptoms associated with Covid-19. Incredibly, the National League rolls on for now in the midst of the virus pandemic.

Rooney’s most prolific spell of his career undoubtedly came with the Dons. He scored 87 with 20 assists in 197 matches in red.

Now his latest challenge will have him trying to fire Solihull into the EFL.
