Beesley Delighted To Be Here

25 September 2020

Jake Beesley says it was always his aim to get back into the Football League after joining Dale from Solihull Moors.

The forward has signed a three-year deal at the Crown Oil Arena and says he can’t wait to get started.

“I’m delighted to be here,” said Beesley.

“The move came about a few weeks ago and since I first heard about it, I really wanted to come here and try to better myself in League One.

“I had that taste of playing in League Two last season [with Salford City], scoring a few goals. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to, but at Solihull I played a lot of games and the aim was to try and get a move back to the Football League, which thankfully has come off.

“It was important that I played games last year at that stage of my career. It stood me in good stead and hopefully now I can kick on with Rochdale.”

Beesley becomes Brian Barry-Murphy’s sixth signing of the summer, and the 23-year-old is looking forward to working with him.

“We’ve briefly spoke. I’ve heard good things about him. We’ve got a young squad and he puts belief in young players which is a positive I see in him. Hopefully I can improve working under him.

“I like to think I’m quick, mobile, decent in the air and I can get goals as well. Hopefully I can show that in the next few weeks and we can have a good season.”
