A former Grimsby Town striker has found himself a new club ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Nathan Jarman, who played for the Mariners between 2007 and 2010, has joined Winterton Rangers in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One, following his departure from Lincoln United.
The 33-year-old originally moved to Blundell Park on trial in the summer of 2007, having come through the ranks at Barnsley, where he was under the tutelage of former Mariners’ assistant Stuart Watkiss.
Jarman did enough to earn a short-term deal under Alan Buckley, which was eventually extended until the end of the 2007/08 season.
His performances towards the end of the campaign were enough to see that deal extended for another season. Following Buckley’s dismissal in September 2008, Jarman excelled in a right-sided midfielder role under new boss Mike Newell.
But he was used sparingly in the 2009/10 season and, following a dismissal against Macclesfield Town in February 2010 – coming just ten minutes after appearing as a substitute – the former Tyke was frozen out altogether by manager Neil Woods. Indeed, the Scunthorpe-born forward was forced to train with the youth team and not even included in reserve fixtures. The player scored seven times in 53 outings for the Mariners.
Following his departure from Blundell Park, Jarman has become one of the more prolific frontmen in the lower leagues – enjoying spells with Corby Town, Alfreton Town, Chester, North Ferriby United, Gainsborough Trinity and Mickleover Sports, before joining Lincoln United as player/assistant manager last term.
Jarman left the club in March and joined Winterton last weekend, making an instant impression at his new club by scoring five minutes into his debut – a 5-0 victory over Appleby Frodingham.
