Chester have confirmed new deals for two of the club’s young prospects.

Harrison Burke and Lloyd Marsh-Hughes have both committed to the Blues for next season.

On 18-year-old defender Burke and 19-year-old forward Marsh-Hughes, joint-manager Anthony Johnson told the club’s website:

“It’s been a pleasure for all of us to work with Harrison this season. His performances in the FA Youth Cup for the youth team were exceptional this season and he’s took those performances with him into the first-team environment.

“Although he’s only had one appearance in senior football so far, we feel next season will be one where he takes his game to the next level.

“This season is so important for young Lloyd. He was a player we’d heard about even before we’d took the job and subsequently was asked to train with us from the first day of pre-season back in 2018.

“Since then, he’s had a really tough couple of seasons with injuries that kept setting him back, even after going out on loan to Marine and looking the real deal he then picked up another injury. But over the last few months there’s been a real desire in his performances in training and off the bench.

“He now looks ready to take the world on.”
