Nantwich Town have confirmed their first signing of the summer as forward Harry Clayton returns to the Weaver Stadium from Kidsgrove Athletic.

It’s also the first signing for the Dabbers under new manager Dave Cooke who was reappointed as First Team boss following the departure of Phil Parkinson.

Clayton first played for the 2006 FA Vase winners in February 2013 on loan from Crewe Alexandra, he returned permanently to the Cheshire side in the July of that year after he was released by the Gresty Road club. He spent two seasons at Nantwich before joining Colwyn Bay at the start of the 2015/16 season.

However the 24-year-old ended a short spell there and returned for a third spell at the club under Parkinson, but his stay was short lived as he would join Newcastle Town in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South before making the move to Kidsgrove.

The forward’s brother is Max Clayton, who currently plays for Bolton Wanderers.
