York City have signed defender Sean Newton following a loan spell from league rivals Wrexham.
Newton started his career with Chester City.
He made his professional debut in 2-0 defeat against Grimsby Town in the 2008/09 season.
With only a further one game under his belt at Chester he went out on loan to Southport allowing him to gain first-team experience.
This spell included him scoring from a free-kick against Tamworth – a feat which he would gain a reputation for.
After thirteen league and four cup appearances, he returned to Chester in November 2007.
He then joined Droylsden for the remainder of the season where enjoyed regular first team football bagging fifteen appearances and 1 goal.
Newton then signed for Droylsden permanently where he scored a total of 5 goals from left-back.
Next to add on his CV was a move to Barrow AFC but he only played a total four games for the Cumbrians.
In the same year, he moved to AFC Telford where he stayed for two seasons playing 110 games scoring 4 goals.
At the end of the 2011/12 season he went on loan to Stockport County where he played seven games.
The next season Newton signed for Stockport on a free transfer where he became a fans favorite and was appointed vice-captain.
He played forty-three games and with his free-kick ability he was able to score 6 goals.
He became captain in the back end of the season due to injuries in the squad.
In October, he moved to York on loan until January to re-unite with former boss Gary Mills, and now has earned a deal until the end of the season.
