pre-season - George Cooper fires home for Crewe against Nantwich Town

Nantwich Town have lined up seven pre-season fixtures as new boss Dave Cooke looks to build ahead of the 2017-18 season.

Cooke and assistant player-manager Steve Jones will use the games to shape the team ahead of their 10th season in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division.

The Dabbers will once again play their local League Two neighbours Crewe Alexandra at the Weaver Stadium, but a date for this game is still to be confirmed.

Other pre-season matches now on the schedule include:

Eccleshall (Away) – Tuesday 11th July 7.45pm KO

Whitchurch Alport (Home) – Saturday 15th July 3pm KO

Leek Town (Away) – Tuesday 18th July 7.45pm KO

Wrexham (Home) – Saturday 22nd July 3pm KO

Rhyl (Home) – Tuesday 25th July 7.45pm KO

Sandbach United (away) – Saturday 29th July 3pm KO

Fixtures for the new Northern Premier League season are due out next month.

Cooke and the management team are looking to bring in fresh faces after losing a number of players who followed ex-boss Phil Parkinson to Altrincham.

A club spokesman said: “Rest assured the management team is working hard on securing players for next season. We will announce any news as soon as we have it.”
