BREAKING | Jon Worsnop returns to Chester FC as Goalkeeper Coach
Chester Football Club are pleased to welcome back Jon Worsnop to the club as a goalkeeper coach.
Bradford born Worsnop arrives in time for the Play-Offs as a Goalkeeper Coach and also registered as a player subject to National League ratification.
The 37-year-old returns for a second spell since our 2010 reformation. Jon spent more than two seasons with the club, initially arriving back in 2014 from Alfreton Town.
Technically his third spell across both clubs, Worsnop made one appearance for Chester City back in 2002.
He was part of the side that reached the Second Round of the FA Cup in 2014/15, keeping a clean sheet at Oakwell against Barnsley before the Blues were beaten in the replay.
He left the club in the first few months of the 2016/17 season, but left with best wishes and fond memories after many positive performances between the sticks.
Blues Joint Manager Anthony Johnson had this to say: “Myself and Bern are really pleased to announce the return of a former fans favourite as a player/coach.
“Jon will be tasked with working with our first team goalkeepers, as well as the youth keepers Josh Schofield and Alex Atton.
“His desire to want to return to the club was first class and we’re looking forward to him joining the current coaching staff with Neil Hart and Chris Jones.”
Welcome back to the Deva, Jon!
