Jason Jarrett

JASON Jarrett, who spent the second half of last season with the Wingmakers, has left to join our local neighbours Chester FC in the Blue Square Premier.

The 33-year-old who started his career with Blackpool in 1998, later moving to Wrexham, spent two seasons with Bury, where he became a first team regular and avoided relegation to the Third Division by making a £75,000 move to Wigan Athletic in Division One. 

After recovering from a broken leg, he spent January 2005 on-loan with Stoke City and played three games for the Potters, including their 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal. 

Jarrett moved to Norwich City in June 2005 and, after playing just 11 league games for the Canaries, was loaned to Plymouth Argyle before joining Preston North End in a £30,000 loan deal that later became permanent. 

He had loan spells with Hull City and Leicester City and, after being transfer-listed by Norwich, had further loan spells at QPR and Oldham. 

Jarrett then moved to Brighton & Hove Albion, following his manager Micky Adams to Port Vale in September 2009, but the move proved unsuccessful and he rejoined Oldham on a permanent move. 

Released in January 2011, Jarrett joined Halifax before arriving at Airbus in January 2013 and making six plus four substitute appearances in the Welsh Premier, scoring once against Port Talbot Town.

"Jason is a player that we followed last season and was one of the best midfielders in the conference North," says Chester boss Neil Young.
