Experienced defender Steve Howson is set to leave Chester FC.
The 33-year-old former Salford City player signed a one-year contract with the club last June, reuniting with his former managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley.
The Blues missed out on the National League North play-offs by three points this season, with the management team indicating there will be several personnel changes on the playing side heading into 2019/20. Howson, a popular figure during his year with the club and through his time in football, tweeted the following on his future:
