Lincoln Boss Cowley a Long-Time Admirer of Rowe
Sunday, 17th Dec 2017 15:45

Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley has revealed he is a long-time admirer of Blues winger Danny Rowe, who he is set to sign on loan in January, having attempted to take the 25-year-old to Sincil Bank during his time as a Macclesfield player.

Town boss Mick McCarthy revealed that Rowe is set to join the League Two Imps on loan once the January transfer window opens at his Friday press conference.

“Danny Rowe is a top, top player. He’s someone we know well from his time at Macclesfield,” Cowley told Lincolnshire Live.

“We actually tried to sign him when we first joined Lincoln but he had just signed a new deal with Macclesfield.

“The year we were at Braintree, he was the standout player in the National League. We’ve all seen what standout players in the National League can do in the Football League. The prospect of him joining us is really exciting.”

He says the deal which will see Rowe join his club for the second half of 2017/18 is all but done: “Everything has been agreed in principle. We’ve just not quite dotted the is and crossed the ts,” Cowley added.

“We’re really thankful to Mick McCarthy that he has put his trust in us because I know he thinks a lot of Danny.

“Mick is a great football man who has forgotten more than I know. So the fact he is has put his trust in us is brilliant for us as a football club.”

Recalling last season’s FA Cup ties between the clubs, when Lincoln won the replay 1-0 at Sincil Bank, the Imps boss said: “Mick was really good with us over those two games.

"It must have been hard for him because it’s never nice to be beaten by an underdog but he showed real class and we had some good conversations with him after both games.”

Rowe has found it tough to break into the Town first team squad this season and has made only one Championship sub appearance in addition to a further game from the bench and his only start of the campaign in the Carabao Cup.

In total, Rowe, who is contracted to Town until the summer of 2020 with the club having an option for a further season, has made three starts and four sub appearances for the Blues having been signed from Macclesfield in January of this year.

The wideman is likely to be in action for the Blues' U23s when they face Coventry at Playford Road on Monday afternoon (KO 1pm).

Best of luck Danny hope you rip it up at Lincoln and show McCarthy why you should be at Portman Road.

Good luck Danny hope your loan is as successful as Kieffer’s has been.

The Cup games against Lincoln were embarrassing, but Danny Cowley's words about Mick speak well of him. Rowe really needs some game time and this looks like a really good loan for him. Good luck Danny!

All the best Danny. When you return, bring the Cowley brothers with you, and give us some hope for next season!!

I have a feeling Danny Cowley could manage us one day.

Hopefully see you in the summer Mr Cowley.

Another player that never had a chance under McCarthy. Too skilful by half when McCarthy prefers plodders and most of these cheaper purchasers never work out, apart from Mings, and as we have seen recently all of our youngsters have disappeared as they inevitably do under our present manager...

TheIpswich... you mean you think Celina or Waghorn or McGoldrick Or ward or Huws or Bishop or Garner are plodders? Tell me who Rowe should be in the side instead of? Pathetic comment

Monkey_Blue ....what a dunce you are......if you had bothered to read my comments, you would have noticed that I was referring to "cheaper purchasers", which by Ipswich standards clearly do not refer to the players you hastily mentioned but players in recent years bought on the cheap who had no chance of breaking into the team or making a name for themselves: Oar,McDonnell, Malczyk, Yorwath, Coke.
I would hardly call by our spending habits, Waghorn and Garner cheap and Celina in case you forgot is on loan.
Rowe on the precious few occasions ha splayed has shown himself to be a good player but hardly a McCarthy type as he is nimble and skilful and is comfortable on the ball which hardly defines the McCarthy ideal.
