Chester have signed former Southport captain Luke George on a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old midfielder left the Sandgrounders last month after turning down a new contract at Haig Avenue.

"Luke fits into what we're doing at the club and I'm absolutely delighted to capture him," Blues boss Steve Burr told the club website.external-link

The former Stafford Rangers man is the fourth new arrival at Chester so far this summer following Tom Shaw, Ross Hannah and Johnny Hunt.
