Nantwich Town are delighted to announce the signing of Jon Moran after his recent release by Stafford Rangers.

It’s a style of signing that mirrors the centre half’s first arrival to the club, as it was after his release from Crewe Alex in 2015 that he was signed by Phil Parkinson.

Moran made a big impact, becoming an integral part of the side that went on that famous run to the FA Trophy semi-finals, knocking out higher ranked Salford City, Stockport County and Dover Athletic in the process.

His performances that season turned a lot of heads, and he was bought by then National League side Forest Green Rovers in the summer of 2016.

After loans at Halesowen and Weston-Super-Mare, he joined Chester on a free in 2018, and Bradford Park Avenue in the summer of 2019.

That winter, he moved to Stafford Rangers where he’s stayed until February this year, when his spell was mutually ended due to injury, captaining the side at times for them.

Moran spoke to us about his Dabbers return, saying:

“It’s an absolute pleasure to sign back with this great club and to finally come home to where I belong. The club has been great with me and has offered me great support in my rehabilitation from my current injury.

I can’t wait to play a part in keeping this club in this division, whether that be on or off the pitch.

Special thanks goes to Dave who has always supported me through my career and also a thank you to Stafford Rangers for the support they showed me, allowing me to recover elsewhere.

I can’t wait for this new chapter in my career and I am very proud to be a Dabber once again.”
