Chester FC have announced that Evan Horwood has terminated his contract with the club with immediate effect and by mutual agreement.
Evan was offered a six-month contract in May with a view to him competing for a place and a further contract extension. However, as time progressed Evan felt that at this stage of his career he needed the comfort of at least 12 months and – as an opportunity has arisen – the club decided to allow Evan to leave.
A club statement said “We would like to place of record our thanks to Evan for his efforts over the last year, and his professionalism throughout. He made a big contribution on the community side where, alongside Jim Green, he was responsible for delivering an award winning programme with University of Chester.
Plans continue for the new season with a strong squad and everybody behind the scenes wishes Evan Horwood the best of luck for his future career whilst remaining focussed and excited for the campaign ahead”
