Nantwich Town are delighted to reveal our 2021/22 Pre-Season schedule.
The Dabbers will host sides such as Crewe Alexandra, Wolves u23’s and Altrincham as we prepare for the Northern Premier League Premier Division that kicks off on Saturday 14th August.
We will kick off our Pre-Season Campaign on Tuesday 6th July at 19:30 as we welcome our fans with a game against Cymru North side Gresford Athletic. Five days later we host Skybet League One side Crewe Alexandra in our annual Pre-Season freindly on Sunday 11th July, this game will kick off at midday. The two sides met in the 2020/21 pre-season campaign and it was The Dabbers who ran out 4-2 winners on the night thanks to an excellent hat-trick from former Crewe Alex striker Callum Saunders.
The games come thick and fast for Dave Cooke’s men as league rivals Stafford Rangers will visit us on Tuesday 13th July at 19:45. Usually its an excellent game when we face ‘Boro so hopefully this Pre-Season fixture will be a cracker.
On Friday 16th July former Dabbers FA Vase winning player-manager Steve Davis brings his Wolverhampton Wanderers Under 23’s side to The Optimum Pay Stadium. This fixture should be a real test for the Dabbers but we can’t wait to welcome Steve and his side to Nantwich.
On Tuesday 20th July we have our first and only away game of Pre-Season as we travel to Pershall Park to face North West Counties Division One South side Eccleshall FC. Four days later we are back at home as we host Whitchurch Alport in the second annual Eddie Morris Memorial Cup on Saturday 24th July at 15:00. The Dabbers are currently the holders of the Eddie Morris Memorial Cup after beating Alport 2-1 last season at Yokings Park.
On Tuesday 27th July Dabbers will host Altrincham as former Dabbers player and manager, Phil Parkinson brings his National league side to the Optimum Pay Stadium.
In the last week of Pre-Season the Dabbers will host Neil Baker’s Leek Town on Saturday 31st July. Our ninth and final game will be against Chester FC as they make the trip down to Nantwich on Saturday 7th August. We also look forward to welcoming former Dabber, Jamie Morgan back to the Optimum Pay Stadium when he visits as part of the Chester team.
Ticket details for the fixtures will be announced in due course.
