The North West Counties League side Runcorn Town have given Dale Jennings a chance to re-start his career. In 2011, the former Bayern Munich winger was only 18 when the German giants signed him from Tranmere Rovers.
He did not make a first-team appearance but played 36 times for Bayern’s reserves and two years later, he returned to English football with Barnsley. In 2015, Jennings played his last professional game for MK Dons.
The manager Chris Herbert says: “He has lost his way somewhat but I have met with Dale and he is desperate to resurrect his career. He is still only 25 years old, and this next five years are going to be his best years in football.
“He wants to prove the doubters wrong and it was very refreshing to see and hear from someone who has been at one of the biggest clubs in the world at Bayern Munich.”
In 2014, Jennings blamed injury problems, including a hernia and torn knee ligaments for his failure to succeed with Bayern. He said: “They’re one of the biggest clubs in the world and I knew they were the right ones for me. People ask me if I have regrets about going and I say ‘no’. I think I would have had more regrets if I had turned it down because you don’t know what is going to happen.”
