Chester FC manager Steve Burr has completed the signing of defender Danny Taylor from Colwyn Bay.
Chester-born Taylor, 22, arrives on the back of an impressive campaign with the Llanelian Road club, winning the players' player and supporters’ player of the season awards.
Taylor, who plays primarily as a right back, hails from Connah's Quay and began his career with Shrewsbury Town. He made two Football League appearances for the Shrews but was released at the end of the 2010-11 season.
Taylor moved to Welsh Premier League club Airbus UK Broughton and was an ever present in the 2011-12 campaign.
He asked to leave the Wingmakers in September 2012 and director of football Andy Preece reluctantly agreed to release him.
Taylor joined Colwyn Bay the following month and established himself as an integral part of the Seagulls squad, helping them finish mid-table in the Conference North last season.
Blues boss Burr is pleased with his second capture of the summer, following on from the signing of winger Sean McConville from Stalybridge Celtic.
Both are young, proven Conference North performers and fit into the daytime training model being brought in for next season.
Burr said: "We watched Danny last season and he can play either left back or right back and is a talented young player that will do well for us."
