15 Jul 2020 : Iwan Murray follows his former manager to Runcorn Linnets

Highly-rated teenager Iwan Murray is an important new piece in manager Calum McIntyre's Runcorn Linnets jigsaw after signing from Chester.

Iwan, 19, was one of Calum's proteges at Chester, having graduated to the first team through their successful Academy set-up.

Calum, now combining Linnets duties with his roles as head of Academy and youth team boss at Chester (having relinquished his first team coaching position to become manager at The Millbank), is elated to have persuaded Iwan to transfer to The Millbank Linnets Stadium.

The second young Welshman to have joined Linnets in as many days, following our capture of defender Jacques Welsh from Flint Town United, Iwan was a contract player at The Swansway Chester Stadium.

The diminutive attacking midfielder had signed a new Chester deal last summer, having made a real impact in the 2018-19 campaign.

After announcing himself in style on debut in an early-season 3-1 win over Kidderminster Harriers, Iwan went on to open his Chester account with a goal in the Blues' 4-0 FA Cup second qualifying round win over City of Liverpool.

He made 12 apperances in National League North that season, starting six games and scoring a stunner in the 3-0 win at Ashton United.

Iwan had joined the Blues from home team Denbigh Town, having previously served Rhyl at academy and senior levels.

He is a talented playmaker, who can also play in wide positions.

Last season Iwan had chance to continue his football education with loan spells in the Northern Premier League Premier Division at Warrington Town and Atherton Collieries.

He made 20 senior appearances in all for Chester, scoring three goals.
