Chester FC have announced the signing of Jordan Chapell on a one-year deal following his release from Vanarama National League rivals Torquay United.
Chapell, 22, had spells with the Gulls and Grimsby Town last season after starting his youth career at Sheffield United.
He can operate on both wings, and is Chester boss Steve Burr’s sixth summer signing.
Burr said: “Jordan took our eye in the home game with Torquay earlier last season. I tried to get him in January but he opted for a move to Grimsby, which I can understand as they were going for promotion.
“Once we knew his contract was coming to an end with Torquay, we held several discussions with him and were chuffed that we’ve been able to get him to sign.
“He’s another player that we’ve managed to bring in that’s young, but got experience already in this league.
“He had a great start at Torquay last season, and I thought they were one of the best sides to come to our place lasts season.
“He certainly shone that night, and although when we played them at their ground, I thought he had another great game that night.
“Jordan can operate on either wing and can play almost anywhere in midfield. He has good qualities, and we hope we can work and build on that.
“He gives us a lot of options which is a bonus, and that’s important when we’re working with a relatively small squad.”
On his move to the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium, Chapell said: “I’m delighted to be joining the club.
“I’ve been speaking to the Gaffer for a while now and it’s something I’ve wanted to get done all summer, and I’m pleased we’ve managed to get there now.”
