Blyth FA Cup - Nantwich Town's Weaver Stadium, pre-season games, community football

By Robert Summerscales
Nantwich Town opens early on Easter Monday – so fans can watch Chelsea v Manchester Utd.

Weaver Stadium turnstiles will open from 12.15pm for the screening of FA Cup quarter final replay.

Chelsea-United kicks off at 12.30pm, with the Dabbers taking on high-flying Witton Albion in an Evo-Stik Premier League clash at 3pm.

After the match, fans will be able to catch the last evening of the Nantwich Jazz Festival in the town, with bands like Sad Cafe (Civic Hall), Blozone (The Shakespeare, and So What Now (Crown Hotel Ballroom) performing.

Witton will arrive in Nantwich having bolstered their ranks with the transfer deadline day signing of former Nantwich forward Jason Oswell.

Meanwhile, Dabbers have secured the signature of centre-half JJ Bailey, who returns to the Weaver Stadium from Market Drayton Town.

The loan of Crewe Alexandra forward Harry Clayton has been extended until the end of the season.

Both will be in Darren Moss’s squad for today’s away game at Marine (March 30).

Simon Everall is doubtful with an ankle injury, but Ryan Dicker could return.

Marine could field their big-name signing of former Swansea City forward Lee Trundle, who joined from Chester on Thursday.
