Chester have kept hold of George Glendon and Declan Weeks for next season.

The news is a major boost for the Blues, as the club turn their attention to mounting another promotion challenge in the National League North.

On skipper Glendon’s new deal, joint-manager Anthony Johnson told the club’s website: “We’ve known for months the number of clubs that have sent scouts down to the Deva to watch our fantastic players and we knew it was George that they were going away talking about. Why wouldn’t they?

“But when we sat down with him to talk about our plans for next season, the surprise we got when he told us all he wanted was to stay at the club blew us away.”

On midfielder Weeks also committing, Johnson said: “To say we’re excited to be working with Dec for another season is an understatement. This lad has come into the club after being released by Kidderminster as a quiet, unassuming player who was expected to just sit in front of the back four and get the odd move from the back going every now and again.

“But what actually transpired was that he changed the whole dynamic of our style of play. His touch and vision, his ability to want to take the ball in any situation is frightening, but the biggest impact for us was ability to drive with the ball, to get us up the pitch and assist and score goals.”
