Chester FC have confirmed the signing of ex-Morecambe goalkeeper Tony Thompson.
The 21-year-old arrives as a replacement for Dylan Forth, who was released following his appearance in Tuesday night's Cheshire Senior Cup win over Hyde United.
Thompson left Morecambe earlier this month when the five-month deal he signed in the summer expired.
He made two first-team appearances for the Shrimps, coming off the bench to replace an injury Barry Roche in a 1-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge in League Two and starting in a 2-0 loss at Fleetwood Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Liverpool-born Thompson was previously with Rotherham United and last season had spells on loan at Chelmsford City and Southport.
He has been training with Chester since leaving Morecambe and has impressed enough to earn a deal for the rest of the season.
"We’ve let Dylan Forth go because he needs to be playing regular football and we’ve brought in Tony Thompson," said Burr.
"He’s done well in training and from what we’ve seen of him he’s really going to push Jon Worsnop and that’s what we need from our squad."
