Former Crewe Alex striker Shaun Miller signs for The Dabbers

Nantwich Town are delighted to announce the signing of experienced Football League striker Shaun Miller.

Shaun Miller signs for Nantwich Town

The Crewe academy product has amassed just over 450 football league appearances, scoring 102 goals in his 15-year career.

Miller joins us from Bolton Wanderers where he made 20 appearances in the clubs successful promotion winning campaign.

He began his career at local side Crewe Alexandra in 2006 where he went on to make 163 appearances in a spell that lasted 6 years, making him a Cult-Hero at Gresty Road. In 2012 he made the move to Yorkshire to sign for Sheffield United on an initial two-year deal. Miller only made 28 appearances for The Blades but he famously scored twice in the 90th minute to help his side come from behind against Port Vale to dramatically send them into the next round of FA cup. His FA Cup dream continued as later in the competition he scored an 120th  minute winner at Craven Cottage to help the Yorkshire club progress into the fourth round.

Miller then had spells at Coventry City, Morecambe and Carlisle United before returning to The Alexandra Stadium in 2018 on a loan deal from Carlisle, where he grabbed six goals in 15 appearances, earning himself a two year deal at the Alexandra Stadium, before leaving to go to Bolton Wanderers where he has recently helped them gain promotion into League One

Dabbers manager Dave Cooke expressed his delight in finally getting Miller to join his side “We actually spoke to Shaun last season, but he was offered a football league contract which he took, so it’s nice to finally get him signed. We’re delighted that he’s joined, he brings a wealth of experience to the side which is invaluable at this level. He’s scored a lot of goals in the football league and he’s a local lad which will certainly mean that the fans will get behind him in on match-days. We’re very pleased to be able get Shaun on board in time for the new season”

Miller becomes The Dabbers second signing of the summer after they signed Goalkeeper Cameron Terry on Wednesday.

You can see their  new man in action tomorrow as we host Chester at 1pm before our season kicks off on Saturday 14th August when Stalybridge Celtic visit the Optimum Pay Stadium.
