Chester FC have announced that Colne midfielder Gary Stopforth is their latest summer signing.
The 31-year-old adds further experience to Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s squad and joins after a short spell with Colne towards the end of last season. A combative midfielder, Stopforth has notably represented Stockport County and Salford City in his career to date.
He had moved to Colne at the end of March, speaking of the struggles he had faced with the excessive travel to Stockport as he balanced football with his window-cleaning business. As well as Salford, Stopforth has worked with Chester bosses Johnson and Morley at Ramsbottom United.
