Jackson swaps relegation battle for promotion push
22-year-old Bradley Jackson has today left Ashton United to sign for Chester and in doing so will now be involved in Chester’s promotion chase towards the National League rather than fighting to avoid the drop out of the National League North.
Jackson, who came through the youth team at Burnley, was released from the under-23 squad at the end of last season and eventually signed for Ashton United where he has been a regular so far this season, contributing six goals from his wing position.
His team are next to bottom of the league and under threat of relegation but he’s signed for Chester who are currently fourth, just four points behind leaders Chorley.
Speaking to his club’s website, joint manager Anthony Johnson said: “We saw Bradley last season at Southport whiles he was on loan from Burnley and really got our eye. His performance against us for Ashton in a couple of different positions was outstanding and we feel he will give us a different outlet to anything else we’ve got with his lightning and direct pace and his terrific ability on the ball.
“He’s also already scored six goals in all competitions so far for Ashton too so knows where the goal is.”Share this page :
