We had to pick the biggest legend out of the bunch, that’s for AFC Fylde anyway, as in this article I have look at AFC Fylde club legend Danny Rowe.

Danny has been at the club since November 2014. He originally started at Fleetwood back in 2010, where he spent 3 years at the club, but only made 2 starts. He had 2 loan spells at Stockport, where he nine goals in 17 appearances. He was released from Fleetwood and joined Lincoln. He spent a season at the club, only making appearances, scoring 3 goals.

Rowe joined Fylde in August 2014, signing a deal with the club just a few days before the Conference North season kicked off.

In his debut season at the club, Rowe scored an impressive 35 goals in all competitions as the Coasters narrowly missed out on promotion losing in the Play-Off semi-finals to Guiseley.

In the 2015/16 campaign, Rowe was Fylde’s top scorer once again with 31 goals. He was also tied with our very own Dayle Southwell who was at Boston United at the time, on 24 goals for the Golden Boot as Fylde agonisingly lost in the playoff final to North Ferriby United.

The following season, AFC Fylde cruised to the National League North title. The step up to the National League came fairly easy for Rowe, where he netted 24 goals in all competitions, as well as earning the Player of the Year award in his first season.

The following season, Rowe surpassed this title, netting 27 goals in the league – winning the Golden Boot and retaining the Player of the Year award
