BREAKING | Chester FC sign Alex Kenyon!

Chester FC are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Alex Kenyon!

Kenyon brings a wealth of experience to the club and has signed a one-year contract with the Blues, subject to clearance.

The 29-year-old defensive midfielder has impressed during his time on trial with Calum McIntyre’s side – both on and off the pitch.

Alex started his career at Everton; before featuring at Chorley, Lancaster City and Stockport County.

In 2013, he moved to Morecambe , where he would go on to make more than 250 appearances for the club. His eight-year stay with the Shrimps ended with promotion into League One in his final game for the club.

Kenyon then signed for Scunthorpe United last summer, before moving on to Scottish Championship side Ayr United at the back end of the campaign.

Manager Calum McIntyre said: “I’m really pleased to get Alex on board for the coming season.

“He came in with us at the start of pre-season and demonstrated his qualities. He has obvious ability given the level he has consistently played at but what he brings as a character and as a leader is exactly what we were after in our last midfield addition.

“This feels like the final piece of the jigsaw in midfield areas as we ensure we have a variety of options in there in terms of attributes, age and experience.”

Welcome to CH1, Alex!
