Nantwich Town F.C.

Nantwich Town Football Club is a semi-professional football club based in Nantwich, Cheshire, England. The club was founded in 1884 and is nicknamed The Dabbers, a reference to the town's tanning industry. They currently compete in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, the seventh tier of English football, and play their home matches at the Weaver Stadium - for sponsorship reasons, also known as the 'Optimum Pay Stadium'.

In 1995, in an FA Cup preliminary round tie against Droylsden, Andy Locke scored the fastest ever FA Cup hat-trick, in 2 minutes 20 seconds. This record still stands for a hat-trick in any round of the FA Cup, including the preliminary rounds before the First Round. Nantwich have qualified for the FA Cup First Round Proper three times, in 2011, 2017 and 2019.

Nantwich Town won the FA Vase on 6 May 2006. Two goals from Andy Kinsey and one from Stuart Scheuber produced a 3–1 win over Hillingdon Borough at St Andrew's.

Finishing third in the North West Counties League Division One, they were promoted to the Northern Premier League Division One South for the 2007–08 season and then gained a second consecutive promotion, to the Northern Premier League Premier Division.

Nantwich also progressed to the semi-final stage of the FA Trophy in 2015–16, losing 6–4 over two legs to Halifax Town.
