Ex-Accrington duo pen Chester City FC deals

FORMER Accrington Stanley pair Jay Harris and David Mannix have joined the Blues.

FORMER Accrington Stanley pair Jay Harris and David Mannix have joined the Blues.

The Liverpool-born midfielders penned two-year deals at the Deva Stadium this afternoon.

Harris said: “I’m looking forward to the new challenge.

“I can tackle and play a bit as well and can’t wait to get going.”

Mannix added: “I’ve had a long meeting with the manager and everything he’s said is very positive. They’re looking to get in the play-offs this year, so I’m really looking forward to it.”

Mannix’s career has been hampered by knee injuries.

A product of Liverpool’s Academy, the 22-year-old has had two spells with Accrington – either side of a brief stint with Norwegian club Ham-Kam.

Harris, 21, is a tough-tackling midfielder. He started his career at Everton but joined Accrington in 2006 and made 41 appearances for John Coleman’s men last season.
