Midfielder Nathan Marlow Wigg was taken to Dundalk in the summer of 1997 by Eddie May, along with another of Eddie’s Cardiff City’s charges Steve Williams. Wigg had made almost 60 appearances with Cardiff, including a substitute European Cup Winners Cup appearance.

Maybe if Eddie had stayed things would have panned out differently but despite much promise he failed to cut it under Jim McLaughlin and within a couple of months he was released, after 12 appearances more than half of them as substitute.

He saw out the rest of the 1997-98 season and moved on for the following year to Forrest Green with Ebbw Vale. He was having a good spell at Gloucester Town when a financial crisis resulted in some of the leading players—including Nathan—being released.

His next port of call with Cwmbran Town proved more productive and he stayed for three years, that included qualification for the UEFA Cup when Nathan got his second European competition appearance against Romanian side Slovan Bratislava.

After a short spell at Llanelli he finished his career at Southern League side Clevedon, retiring on Jul-1-2005.
