Former Lancaster City striker Jordan Connerton has returned to Giant Axe from Vanarama National League North side Chorley after signing a contract with the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club.
Connerton, 26, has returned for his fourth spell at Lancaster which started back in 2006 at the age of just 16 in the Conference North. He returned for the 2009/10 season and scored 29 league goals to take him to non-League fame.
His reputation as a clinical goalscorer earned him a transfer to League Two side Crewe Alexandra, where he also had loan spells at Nantwich Town, Iceland Premier side Íþróttabandalag Vestmannaeyja, Kendal Town and Workington AFC.
He returned to the Giant Axe in 2014 for the second half of the season, scoring 10 goals in fourteen games before leaving for Australia. On his return he signed for Chorley, winning an Lancs FA Trophy medal in the Magpies’ cup final win on penalties against Lancaster.
City boss Phil Brown expressed his delight in the signing: “I’m really pleased to have secured Jordan, he’s an excellent player and will add massively to our attacking threat.
“We’ve known Jordan a long time and have been monitoring his situation. Once we thought there was an opportunity to bring him back to Lancaster we acted quickly. Strikers of Jordan’s calibre are difficult to secure, so it’s a great signing for us”.
