LUKE JORDAN has strengthened Chester's squad ahead of their return to action at the Swansway Stadium.

The 19-year-old winger goes straight into contention for today's home encounter with Bradford Park Avenue after signing from Ramsbottom United.

Jordan featured in a pre-season friendly against the Blues and joint managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley liked what they saw from the former Morecambe man.

Speaking to on the signing, Johnson said: “Luke is someone that Bernard and I have watched twice now – along with Neil Hart also seeing him – and he’s impressed us all on each occasion.

“At 19 years of age he fits the profile of player we’re looking to recruit, he played seven times for Morecambe in EFL last season and when his contract expired he was brave enough to drop down the leagues to start his career again.

“He’s a very, very quick and direct winger who will offer us something totally different to any of our other wide players.”

Jordan took to social media, tweeting: "Absolutely delighted to join Chester FC. Big opportunity for me personally and looking forward to working with the managers. Will of course give 100%. Loved every minute at Ramsbottom FC and wish them all the best #theblues"
