National League club Chester have completed the signing of full back Jamie Morgan after the 21-year-old impressed at Step 3 level with Nantwich Town last season.
Morgan scooped three awards this season with the Dabbers – as they made the Evo-Stik Premier Division Play-Offs, winning Nantwich’s Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Management Player of the Season.
Formerly of Crewe Alexandra and Sandbach United, Morgan joined Nantwich Town in 2017 and made 52 appearances in his first season – being named their Young Player of the Season.
This season he made a further 41 appearances and scored four goals to help the Dabbers play a central role in the tantalizing title race at the top of the NPL.
Speaking to Chester’s official club website, joint boss Bernard Morley said: “We are delighted to have Jamie on board for next season.
“He fits the profile of the kind of player we want at this football club – he’s young, hungry and determined to climb the leagues.”
After a tough campaign in the National League North last season, Chester finished off the year in 9th place in the table, three points adrift of the play-off positions following a 2-2 draw at Alfreton on the season’s final day.
