dr marten bags Chester sign chairman’s son
Conference champions Chester City have signed young right back Stephen Vaughan jnr. from Premiership side Liverpool. The 19 year old who is the son of Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan reportedly turned down two offers from Europe to join the Deva Stadium outfit for next season’s return to The Football League. Despite the reported interest of Belgian side Mechelen and Norwegian outfit Viking Stavanger,
Vaughan seems pleased to further his career in Division Three next season. The young Vaughan could be joined at the club by Scarborough winger Keith Gilroy after a deal between both clubs had reportedly been agreed. Gilroy is expected to undergo a medical at The Deva Stadium in the next couple of days before completing his move to Mark Wright’s side. Meanwhile,
Alan Lewer has returned to Chester to become the club’s reserve team coach and chief scout. Lewer left the club in February 2003 to become assistant manager at Nuneaton Borough. He was then made Nuneaton boss before stepping down from the Manor Park hot seat this past February with the Dr Martens League Premier Division side.
