ALEX reject Pavol Suhaj may have found himself a lifeline back into the Football League.

The 6ft 4ins Slovakian will be hoping to impress during a trial spell with League Two outfit Shrewsbury Town.

It'll be a fairly remarkable resurrection if he can make it with plenty of thanks due to Nantwich Town.

Back in 2005, Crewe shelled out £90,000 for his services after a decent performance in a frendly against West Brom.

But he was rarely seen in an Alex shirt afterwards.

Crewe tried to pay him off after 12 months but the striker stuck around before being released last summer.

After tyring his luck at Stafford Rangers, Suhaj seized a chance to start the season with the newly-promoted Dabbers.

Initially failing to make an impact in the UniBond League, he looked set for another exit when Nantwich made him available for either loan or transfer two months ago.

Suhaj responded with some decent displays in green as he finally cemented his place in the side.

Shrews boss Gary Peters is on the look out for a striker this month after missing out on Accrington Stanley's Paul Mullin.

Suhaj played the first 45 of a friendly against Bradford on Monday and is in line for another opportunity next week.

Steve Davis said Nantwich Town will not stand in his way.

"Pav was only scheduled to play the first-half because we had a game on Tuesday night at that stage," he explained.

"He's due to play again next Monday.

"I'll speak to Gary Peters and see what is said.

"It is an opportunity for Pav and we would never stand in anyone's way of playing in the Football League.

"He is under contract to us but we'll see how he does first.

"He's done a lot better over the last month "In fact putting him on the list seemed to buck him up and made him realise he'll need to work hard to get another chance in the League.
