Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division Nantwich Town promotion-chasers Nantwich Town have pulled off something of a coup by bringing Jamaican international striker Ricardo Fuller out of retirement.

The 39-year-old arrives at the Weaver Stadium after a break of two years away from the game.

Making over 180 appearances for the Potters, Fuller enjoyed a six-year spell at the bet365 Stadium and joins the Dabbers after short spells with the likes of Charlton Athletic, Blackpool, Millwall and Oldham Athletic.

After starting out with Jamaican outfit Tivoli Gardens, Fuller came over to England to sign for Crystal Palace in 2001 but failed to settle in London and left after making just 8 appearances and returned to Tivoli.

He spent the 2001/02 season on loan with Scottish side Hearts and then tried a second time to make it in England by joining Preston North End for £500,000 in 2002.

This saw his career take off over here and he went on to play for the likes of Preston, Portsmouth and Southampton before signing for Stoke in August 2006 and he became a folk hero in the Potteries.

As well as over 500 appearances in the club game, Fuller has been capped 77 times for Jamaica and scored 10 international goals.

He could make his Nantwich debut at Matlock Town on Saturday.
