RICKY Ravenhill last night completed a dramatic U-turn by snubbing Boston United to sign for Chester City.
The Doncaster Rovers midfielder looked all set to sign for City on Monday but after initial talks over personal terms he appeared to have decided against a move to the Saunders Honda Stadium. But City chairman Stephen Vaughan told the Chronicle that following further discussions with City boss Mark Wright last night, the 25-year-old had agreed terms.
Vaughan said: 'We have finally completed the signing of Ricky Ravenhill.
'It came down to a straight choice between what we were offering and what Boston were offering and I'm pleased to say he chose us.
'He will sign a two year deal along with Glenn Cronin, who has completed the formalities on his move from Exeter City.
'They will complete the jigsaw for our midfield.'
Ravenhill, who scored three goals in 34 appearances for Rovers last season, is the third Doncaster player to sign for the Blues this summer, joining former team-mates Jermaine McSporran and Simon Marples.
Meanwhile Vaughan revealed that City's interest in former Everton and Bradford City striker Danny Cadamarteri was dependant upon the outcome of the player's appeal against a failed doping test.
Vaughan said: 'We can't do anything until he has had his hearing.'
An FA spokesman said that a date had yet to be decided for the appeal. Cadamarteri faces a ban of up to six months.
