Hewitt Returns to Port

By Steve Whitney

Dino Maamria, manager of Vanarama National League club Southport, has signed former Burnley midfielder Steven Hewitt and he is...

....included in the squad on Saturday having had a successful loan spell at the Merseyrail Community Stadium last season.

Hewitt had only joined Chester at the end of December after being released by Championship side Burnley after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent.

The former scholar, 22, made two first-team appearances for the Clarets from the bench, in April 2012 and December 2013, while his solitary start for the club came in the Capital One Cup in August 2012.

Hewitt enjoyed two loan spells while at Turf Moor, spending three months at Alfreton Town in 2013 before spending the remaining month of the 2014/15 season at Southport.
