Chorley boss Matt Jansen has made his first signing of the summer by securing the services of attacking midfielder Josh Wilson.
The 6`2” Liverpudlian moves to the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium from league rivals AFC Telford United.
The 28-year-old former England C international decided that Chorley is the club where he wants to play his football despite there being interest from other high-profile clubs.
Wilson left The New Bucks Head as top scorer last season, and having netted 16 times in forty-seven appearances for the club.
He boasts Northwich Victoria, Vauxhall Motors, FC Halifax Town and AFC Fylde amongst his former clubs, as well as playing an integral role in helping Guiseley AFC in their promotion push to the National League in a month-long loan deal in 2015.
Speaking about the new signing, assistant-manager Jamie Vermiglio, told Paul Metcalfe: “We are delighted to secure the services of Josh Wilson who, when he met, was adamant that Chorley was the place he wanted to play his football. Josh comes with a reputation of scoring goals from midfield, but with some seasons of scoring up to 20 when he’s played up top.”
Vermiglio continued: “Josh is a winner, he’s hungry and will add something new to our squad. He’s played a lot of games at our level and above, and during his time has been part of promotions and playoffs. He knows the importance of a good dressing room with team spirit and we look forward to working with him as we aim to improve on what was a successful 2016/17 campaign”.
