The 32-year-old centre forward made 12 starts and featured 30 times in all competitions for the Red Dragons during the 2018/19 campaign, notching four goals.

I’m delighted to have signed on for Chorley and can’t wait to get stuck in to pre-season. I’ve heard great things about the club and I know I’m joining a really talented squad, a group of winners, who are ambitious about what we can achieve together this season Chris Holroyd

The former Crewe Alexandra & Chester City apprentice has turned out for 10 clubs in his 13-year career to date, including stints in League One with Brighton & Hove Albion, Preston North End & Morecambe.

It was important for us to add to our options going forward and Chris brings to the table both quality and experience at National League level. This signing will hopefully be the first of a number of new faces coming into the club over the coming weeks and it’s a great one to start withJamie Vermiglio
