"On Tuesday morning, Jack Dunn was sat in his car outside a Costa Coffee drive-through in Speke, waiting for the information that would define the rest of his day.

In May 2014, he played for Liverpool’s first team as a late substitute in an end of season friendly against Shamrock Rovers at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium. He scored as well, making it 4-0.

Nearly seven years later, he is on trial at FC Halifax Town in the National League. If that night’s game at Barnet goes ahead, the Halifax squad will travel south by coach and he will go home to Runcorn, where he lives with his girlfriend Emma, and their baby boy, Teddy.

If the game is postponed, he will instead get on the motorway and drive an hour and 20 minutes to Leeds, where Halifax train, and try for the fourth time in five days to impress manager Pete Wild.

Looks like another player who has dotted about at a number of places and never really found a niche. Maybe he will come good with us, but I probably won't be holding my breath:

Looking at that stat sheet above its not very impressive is it??? I'm not having a go at the lad before we've even seen owt of him but 27 appearences in 6yrs??? And he's listed as Striker/Winger/Midfielder and only 4 goals??? 😛

Can we just never get someone that we know is good rather than these wildcard players 

He's probably not even being paid bar expenses, its something we should be constantly doing and probably are.

The problem with signing players that we know are good is...everyone knows there good and its not easy to then sign.

The Athletic have done a piece on him, which mentions the fact that we currently have him on a trial

Dunn put this out on Twitter on February 2nd. Basically a "Gis a job!" plea. Maybe Wild or Milly saw it, and have helped out?

This maybe a long shot as I’m in the same boat as a lot of lads but I’m currently a free agent with no representation just want to get back on the pitch playing football so if anyone can help out or knows anybody it would be massively helpful
