Joel Taylor made his return to Chester FC in May 2023. The left-back was a hugely popular figure at the Deva in his first spell with the Blues and came ‘home’ in his own words to sign a one-year deal for 2023/24.
Taylor initially arrived down CH1 in the summer of 2019 and had a crucial impact in his only full campaign with the Club – being named CFU Player of the Season for 2019/20 and was also selected in the Vanarama National League North Team of the Season.
Joel made 48 appearances for Chester, before moving up a division to sign for Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee in December 2020. The defender would then sign for Notts County in 2021, spending two years with the Magpies.
He finished last season with another spell in the National League, closing out the campaign with play-off chasing Wealdstone.
