Ryan Astles admits he would have liked the chance to speak to Chester’s new management duo before deciding on his future.

The bruising centre-half, 24, joined Southport last month on a two-year deal, after his contract expired with Chester, where he made 112 appearances since arriving from Northwich Victoria in January 2016.

The Birkenhead-born defender, named captain last season following John McCombe’s departure, would have welcomed a chat with new bosses Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley, but insists he has no regrets about joining the Sandgrounders.

“From my point of view, from the last day of the season I didn’t receive one phone call from the football club. It would have been good to know what was happening, but I didn’t know what their plans were,” he said.

“I would’ve listened to what Chester had to say and I would have liked to hear what the two managers had to say. But that’s gone now, and we move on from it.”
