Skipper departs for fresh challenge

Nantwich Town captain Sam Hall has left the EVO-STIK League's Dabbers to look for a fresh challenge elsewhere.

Officials at the Weaver Stadium confirmed the 29-year-old's departure by mutual consent ahead of the EVO-STIK League Premier Division club's trip to Sandbach United on Wednesday night in the first round of the Cheshire Senior Cup.

The former Kidsgrove Athletic and Burton Albion midfielder was an ever-present last season and the Dabbers paid tribute to their out-going skipper in a statement on Tuesday announcing his departure. In total, Hall made 128 appearances and scored four times for the club since arriving from Leek Town for the start of the 2015-16 season.

A club spokesman said: “We would like to sincerely thank Sam for the valuable contribution that he has made during his time with the Dabbers and we wish him the very best as his playing career enters its next chapter."

He added: “Sam has been a major presence around the club, a consummate professional and a great captain and in this role, he led the Dabbers to some great success that will live long in the memory and for this he has our sincere thanks."
