RYAN Lowe has left the door open for a possible return to the Deva Stadium after formally ending his time at the club yesterday, writes ALEC DOYLE.
The winger-turned-striker had his Chester City contract terminated by mutual consent, allowing him to secure a move to a Football League side next season.
But while fans’ favourite Lowe is heading for pastures new as the Blues face up to life in the Blue Square Premier, he would be happy to one day return to the club he loves.
“I am not ready for non-league football yet,” said Lowe, who was City’s top-scorer and player of the season last term. “But I would love to come back as a player or coach in the future. I love this club.
“I came back this season because I felt I owed the fans something. Last time I left it was under a cloud as I fell out with Mark Wright.
“This time we got on like a house on fire, it was just a shame how the season turned out.
“But the fans stuck by us and were singing my name and lifting me when I went through a scoring blip in the season. They are fantastic.”
Lowe’s agent is currently in talks with a number of clubs in League One and League Two in an attempt to secure a deal for the 30-year-old.
“There are negotiations ongoing but the move has to be right for me,” said Lowe. “I have a three-year-old lad and a one-year-old girl and we moved three years ago. I don’t want to uproot them so the deal has to be right.”
