HANNAH SIGNS FROM MARINERS

Chester have completed the signing of former 29-year-old Grimsby Town striker Ross Hannah on a one year deal. Hannah joined Grimsby from Bradford City and made 53 appearances for them scoring 28 goals in the process but was released at the end of the season. Blues boss Steve Burr had tried to sign the player on loan last season.

Hannah was impressed by the facilities at Chester and the performances of other fan-owned clubs in the division, he told the Chester Chronicle:

“I’m chuffed to bits that it’s all sorted out, you do stand up and take notice when you see clubs doing well and obviously Chester, Halifax and Telford have all done that after reforming, which has been great to see.”

“I’ve played at Chester a couple of times so I knew a little bit about the club and how good the fans are here. I came down on Wednesday night and that gave me a good chance to have a look around and meet some of the people who work tirelessly for the club.”

“I knew it was a good set up and I had a good feel for it, but it was even better than I thought.”

DEVA GETS NEW SPONSOR

The club have agreed a new two year stadium sponsorship deal which will see Deva Stadium renamed the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium after a two year deal with Swansway Chester ended in May.

John Martin, the club’s commercial director, told the Evening Leader: “It’s a two-year deal with a very prestigious company, and we’re very excited to have them on board with us ahead of what we hope will be another great campaign for the club.”

“It is not only a national brand, but a brand and retailer that are known very well in the local community too. As things are moving on at the club, it shows just how much we are growing as a club that we can attract sponsorship from Vauxhall and Lookers.”

“I’d like to thank everybody who was involved in bringing the partnership together from Vauxhall, Lookers and here at the club. Hopefully today is the start of a very fruitful and successful partnership between us both.”
JAMES SET TO LEAVE
Midfielder Kingsley James has turned down a new contract at Chester and is set to leave. The 23-year-old who lives in Yorkshire is believed to be moving to FC Halifax Town. James, who signed from Hereford United last summer, made a tremendous start to the season although he lost form during the campaign but finished it well. He continued to play for the England C team during his time with Chester. In total James made 43+3 appearances scoring three goals including one in his final game, the 5-3 victory against Nuneaton Town.

Manager Steve Burr said: “The offer for Kingsley was probably the best offer Chester have ever made but at the end of the day, money talks, and we can’t compete with some clubs.”

LIVERPOOL FRIENDLY
Liverpool will bring an U21 side to play at Chester pre-season on Wednesday 29 July, kick-off 19.45hrs.
