John joined Chester FC in January 2020 for an undisclosed fee from Altrincham. He signed an initial 18-month deal with the club, with the option of a further year extension.

Johnston, known for his electric pace and skill in wide areas, worked with Joint Bosses Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley at Salford City during the 2016/17 season before a move to Moss Lane.

The two-and-a-half years that followed for ‘JJ’ saw him score 20 goals in his first season with the club as they won the Evo-Stik Premier Division – and he’s gone on to make 129 appearances for the Robins, scoring 39 times.

An exciting, pacey winger with an eye for goal, Johnston started his career at Kidsgrove Athletic before moving to Leek Town – his performances then caught the eye of Crewe Alexandra who signed him back in January 2014.
