Will Goodwin’s move to Stoke City is further evidence of the great work being done with Chester’s young players, says joint-manager Anthony Johnson.

Johnson highlighted the input of academy boss Calum McIntyre and others after the 18-year-old forward completed his move to the Championship side this week.

He told the club’s website:

“Huge credit must be paid to Calum and his team of coaches and scouts that have nurtured the talent Will possesses all the way through his journey with Chester Football Club.

“Every young player will see that there is a clear pathway to our first team and beyond.”
