STRIKER SIGNS
Chester have signed 28-year-old Jamaican-born forward Darren Stephenson. The striker spent last season at Curzon Ashton and was loaned out to FC Halifax Town when the National League North was declared null and void, scoring one goal in four appearances for The Shaymen. Stephenson has played for several clubs and tasted promotion success from the National League North with Stockport County back in 2019.

Joint manager Anthony Johnson told the club website: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Darren to the club. He’s someone me and Bern have been chasing for a number of years, so get him done along with the other new lads means we’ve got every player in we wanted to sign.”

“Darren is very quick and strong (Joel Taylor can attest to that from last season), gets a ridiculous number of assists but also has a keen eye for goal. He actually scored more goals than Akwasi Asante in the season Akwasi had his best ever season.”
