Macclesfield Town are delighted to announce the signing of former Chester midfielder Elliott Durrell. The playmaker has signed a two-year deal with the Silkmen after spending the last week training with John Askey’s side.
27-year-old Durell was a mainstay in the Chester side last term, appearing in all 46 league games, 42 of them from the start, and netting eight times.
Durrell arrived at Chester after a successful season with Tamworth that saw him finish as their top scorer with 13 goals.
Previously Durrell had spent time Wrexham after bursting on to the non-league scene after a prolific spell with Hednesford.
Over two seasons Durrell scored 58 goals in 95 games for Hednesford to establish himself as one of the hottest properties in non-league football.
More recently Durrell has caught the eye of the TV cameras and had the chance to showcase his talents after being selected for Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy’s V9 Academy, aimed at providing more opportunities for non-league footballers.
Durrell will now have chance to impress in a Silkmen shirt and could feature in our opening pre-season friendly with Derby County tomorrow.
You’ll be able to see an interview with our new signing later today.
