In form Nantwich play host to Marine FC as Jaaskelainen set for Dabbers debut


High flying Nantwich Town host to an out-of-form Marine FC who have just one win in their last nine games.

Nantwich currently sit in 2nd position and just four points behind leaders Scarborough, whereas their opponents are two places from bottom.

Nantwich’s fine form has gained their players recognition from scouts of higher league opposition as centre back Toby Mullarkey is currently on trial this week with League One side Blackpool.

The former Crewe graduate has been in great form this season after joining the club in the summer of 2017.

Manager Dave Cooke said: “Toby has come on leaps and bounds in the past year and we were more than happy with how he performed last year.

“We’ve had a couple of enquiries about him this season, but I’m sure he will benefit from his time at Blackpool.”

This fixture could also showcase the debut of new goalkeeper signing Will Jääskeläinen who signed earlier in the week.

Goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen in action.

Jääskeläinen is the son of former Premier League goalkeeper Jussi Jääskeläinen who made over 600 league career appeareances.

The Finnish goalkeeper has signed on a one-month loan from Crewe.

Will has already had two loan stints with the Dabbers in the last two seasons as the young goalkeeper hopes to emulate the career of his father.

Nantwich are the overwhelming favourites for the match as Marine have failed to keep a clean sheet against Nantwich in their last 12 visits.
