News Round Up

A Chester fan has written a book about his journey following his team across the length and breadth of Britain during the 2016/17 National League campaign. Steve Hill, who lives 200 miles away from the Deva in north west London, told the Chester Chronicle it wasn't about being a Chester fan, but what it's like supporting a non-league club without the coverage that Premier League teams get.

As Hereford close in on selling their 1000th season ticket, Southport will give their 250th season ticket away for free. Prices start from £145 for adults at Haig Avenue.

AFC Telford United have completed the signing of goalkeeper Sheridan Martinez from Solihull Moors. It's the third time the 25-year old has departed Moors, but joins former player/coach Gavin Cowan at Telford as well as former goalkeeping coach Darren Acton, who left his role with Solihull Moors at the end of May.

Louis Almond has tuned down a new deal at York City to join National League North rivals ChorleyAlmond is one of three new signings announced by Chorley, along with 27-year old striker Wes Fletcher and defender Courtney Meppen-Walter. Manager Matt Jensen says a lot of clubs were interested in the 26-year old, but as soon as he learned Chorley were interested he was very keen to make the switch.

Boston United manager Craig Elliott has bolstered his goalkeeping options having brought in teenager Dylan Parkin. The 19-year old has linked up with the Pilgrims following his departure from Chesterfield where, despite not making a competitive first team appearance, was a regular on the Spireites' bench in 2017-2018.

Alfreton Town have signed towering defender Jack Lane from Tamworth on a one-year deal. Reds manager Billy Heath says 6'3" Lane has bags of quality and he's  really pleased with how things are shaping up. Heath also admitted the club will probably have a smaller squad than most other teams in the league, with around 18 players on the books, but many can play in more than one position.
