JORDAN Connerton will be a Lancaster City player next season after officially putting pen to paper on a contract at the Giant Axe.

The prolific striker left the club two years ago for Crewe after his 35 goals nearly fired City to promotion in the Evo-Stik First Division North.

But his time with the Alex was blighted by injury and he spent spells on loan at the likes of Workington, Nantwich and Kendal before he was released from his contract at the end of the season. 
Connerton has now returned to his hometown club in a bid to recapture the form that saw him turn professional, much to the delight of chairman and caretaker manager, Mick Hoyle.

He said: “I’m delighted to have signed him.

“We want to get him back to where he was last time he was with us and he needs to start scoring a few goals to put himself back in the shop window.

“He needs to get himself fit as well and has been working very hard.

“It’s an exciting signing and if we can get him back to where he was it will be great for the club.”

Hoyle said the club have made offers to strikers Mark Jackson and Dave Swarbrick and former Morecambe defender Niall Cowperthwaite, but is waiting for answers from the trio.
