FORMER Chester keeper Jon Worsnop has joined York City.

The 34-year-old net-minder ended last season at Bradford Park Avenue after leaving Chester, where he was the Fans’ Player of the Year in 2014/15.

Worsnop started out at home-town club Bradford City where, at the ages of 17 and 18, he was named as an unused substitute for the Bantams in the Premier League and the UEFA Intertoto Cup during the 2000/01 campaign.

He left Valley Parade, though, without making a senior appearance for a first spell at Chester.

Further stints followed at Aberystwyth Town, Droylsden, Leigh Genesis, Bradford Park Avenue, Guiseley, FC United of Manchester and Alfreton, before he rejoined Chester three years ago and became a regular at the National League outfit.

On his arrival at Bootham Crescent, Worsnop said: “There were a few clubs in for me over the summer – both in the National League and League Two – but they were all a little too far to travel.

“I’m based in Yorkshire and have played at Bootham Crescent before against Leeds United reserves, so I know all about the ground and the club. I could have gone to other full-time clubs in the Conference, but they wouldn’t have been bigger than York City.”
