Chester FC are delighted to welcome back striker Tom Peers following his departure from Macclesfield!
The 27-year-old has penned a contract at the Leap76 Stadium until the end of the 2024/25 season, returning to the club he made his senior debut for almost ten years ago.
Peers scored 24 goals last term for fellow National League North side Curzon Ashton, before making the switch to the Silkmen in the summer. He has scored twice in just six starts so far this campaign.
After putting pen to paper, Tom said: “I’m really excited.
“It has been a long time coming and it felt like the right thing to come back.
“I’ve matured a lot and I’m buzzing to be here and get going back in front of the Chester supporters.”
Manager Calum McIntyre had this to say after welcoming the forward back to the club: “I am absolutely delighted to have brought Tom back to the football club.
“His record at this level speaks for itself and for us to have signed a forward that scored over 20 goals last season is enormous for us.
“I have spoken at length in recent weeks about the specific profile that our centre forward target would be and Tom ticks every single box. He is powerful, athletic and his goal return stands up to anyone at this level. He has won promotion from this division, knows the club and is the right age profile to really improve us.
“Tom is someone I have obviously worked with many moons ago and I’m excited to work with him again.
“I know he is pleased to be back at the club where he first became a professional and the timing is perfect for everyone.”
Peers made his senior debut for the Blues against Braintree Town on 7th December 2013 and scored his first senior goal in the 2-0 win at FC Halifax Town the following year.
He will wear the number seven shirt for Chester and is contention to make his second debut tomorrow afternoon against Scunthorpe United.
Welcome home, Tom!
