TWO more Chester FC players have signed new deals with the club with both full back Matty Waters and midfielder Gary Stopforth putting pen to paper at the Swansway Chester Stadium.

Left back Waters has signed a one year contract extension at the club having signed his first senior deal back in 2016.

The 21-year-old made 20 appearances in the National League North last season and finished the campaign well with a string of impressive performances, culminating in his 50th appearance for the Blues at Alfreton on the final day.

Blues joint boss Anthony Johnson told “Matthew has really impressed us in the last few months of the season.

“He’s improved in every facet of his game and his willingness to want to get better all the time is one of the main reasons we look forward to working with him next season."

Midfielder Stopforth has also signed a new one-year deal at the Swansway Chester Stadium despite suffering a debut season blighted by injury.

The popular midfielder joined from Colne last summer and was been quick to make an impression on the Deva faithful after making 25 appearances and scoring one goal, during the recent campaign.

However a meniscus tear in December forced him to have knee surgery and ruled him out of the remainder of the season.

Nevertheless, the 32-year-old has been working hard on his recovery and will be back fit and fighting ahead of the 2019-20 National League North campaign.

Speaking to on this news, joint manager Johnson said: “Gary is 32 going on 19 in every single way of his life.

“His engine is better than any other player we’ve ever seen at non-league level which helps him lead by example in every game.

“The fact he’s not played since last December will be a massive help for him too meaning by the time he starts pre-season his body has had six months complete rest.”
