That's partly the reason why I'm going to Nantwich!

The perfect start to a week of solitude, no kids to worry about either. I may actually get some sleep!

There are a few theories. Some based on the leather trade of the town when leathers were dipped in baths by workers - so dippers were known in the accent as dabbers.

Also like many a town there were shoe makers who needed to dab animal glue on leather parts in the shoe making process - hence dab some glue - being dabbers of glue.

Also back in the Middle Ages many buildings in Mid Cheshire were built of Wattle and daub and the workers of that fine Town of Nantwich were considered the best at wattle and duab. So they were daubers - Dabbers as in todays language.

To be a Dabber you will have to be born within the sound of the bells of St Marys, Parish Church of Nantwich

Note- Nantwich and Wrexham fixtures do go back in time so its highly appropriate that there is a pre season match between the two. The Dabbers now play in a pleasant modern ground close to the town centre -good food and drink in the club - The ground is quite a contrast to the old Jackson Ave ground off London Rd which I recall being a bit of a mud bath on a winters afternoon.

I can always remember a friendly at Druids in late 60's that I'm sure the Leader reported the atd at the old Plas Kynaston ground was 5,000, or am I getting old and the memory going ?
