Many thanks to everyone who bought a copy of ‘The Ultimate Book of Nantwich Town FC’. Proceeds from sales of the book topped £1,200 and the money has now been donated to the two charities supporting our NHS and care staff who have worked so tirelessly and selflessly throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
£602.24 has been donated to the Mid-Cheshire Hospitals Charitable Fund COVID-19 Emergency Staff Wellbeing Fund, taking the fund’s total to over the £10,000 figure.
The same amount has been donated to the Care Workers Charity COVID-19 Care Workers Crisis Fund.
The book was written by club historian Michael Chatwin and it includes an exhaustive compilation of all Nantwich Town match dates, results, goal-scorers, League tables and team photos to chart The Dabbers ups and downs in each season since our formation in 1884. Players featured include a future Archdeacon of Manchester, the first man to captain England at both cricket and rugby, a Cup Final referee, and an England international in the making, who are amongst nearly 2,000 players who have pulled on a Nantwich jersey and who are all included in this comprehensive new book on the Cheshire club.
After writing the book, Author Micheal Chatwin said “it’s certainly taken a heck of a lot longer than I expected I’d originally expected it to take to write!”
Thanks again to everyone who has supported these charities through their purchase of the book, it is now sold out which is a fantastic achievement. We hope you enjoy reading about the clubs fantastic history
