CHESTER continue to strengthen ahead of next season with the signing of Lathaniel Rowe-Turner from Torquay United.

The 27-year-old left-back, who can also play at centre-half, becomes the seventh new arrival at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium this summer after penning a one-year deal with the Blues.

Rowe-Turner helped keep Torquay in the National League last term but has opted against another year at Plainmoor and links up with Blues’ boss Jon McCarthy after agreeing terms with Chester.

The full-back has previously enjoyed spells at Luton Town, Alfreton Town and Kidderminster Harriers and brings plenty of experience with him having made over 200 appearances in his career, which began as a trainee at Leicester City.

He joins fellow defenders Andy Halls and John McCombe in signing for the club in recent weeks.
