Another Two Through the Door at Chester

By Steve Whitney

Vanarama National League club Chester FC have announced the double signing of striker James Akintunde and midfielder Wade Joyce.

The duo have been on trial at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium during the pre-season campaign - but have now made their switches permanent for the 2016/17 season.

Joyce (pictured), 22, arrives after spending last season with National League North side Stalybridge Celtic.

He's had spells with St Johnstone and Barnsley - and is the son of Manchester United under-21 manager Warren Joyce.

Akintunde, 20, is already well known to the Blues faithful after his impressive 11-minute hat-trick in the 5-3 pre-season win at Marine AFC last Saturday - he's spent the last three years at Cambridge United.

Whilst with the U`s, Akintunde had loan spells with AFC Sudbury and Histon.
