BREAKING | Joe Lynch signs for Chester FC!

    Chester Football Club are pleased to confirm the signing of central midfielder Joe Lynch!

    The 22-year-old has penned a one-year deal at the Deva Stadium, joining Adam Thomas and Kole Hall as another exciting brand new arrival down CH1.

    Lynch started his career at Crewe Alexandra before moving on to Morecambe. He made his first team debut as a 19-year-old for the Shrimps in the EFL Trophy.

    Since then, Joe has featured at Lower Breck and spent last season at Runcorn Linnets.

    Manager Calum McIntyre said: “Joe is a really talented footballer that gives us another option in midfield.

    “I genuinely believe that if it wasn’t for covid and the limited opportunities it presented for players coming out of clubs further up the pyramid then he wouldn’t have ended up at the level he played last season.

    “He has all the hallmarks of a player educated within the Crewe Alex Academy and normally would have found opportunities above step four had covid restrictions not limited such opportunities.

    “His background is impressive, and it would be foolish to perceive Joe as a player simply jumping up two levels given his pedigree.”

    Welcome to Chester FC, Joe!
