THE Club’s third summer recruit is another returnee to Victory Park; Fleetwood Town central defender Lewis Baines.

The 20-year-old featured six times on loan last season for The Magpies, over the Christmas & New Year period, and now joins permanently on a free transfer from the Cod Army.

I’m really excited to be returning and starting a new season with Chorley. It’s a big challenge for me, but I like the style of play, the coaching staff and teammates and I’m hoping to do well and can’t wait to see what this season holdsLewis Baines

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted Lewis lining up as Trialist (6) in our recent friendlies with Preston North End, Wigan Athletic & Everton as manager Jamie Vermiglio assessed his options ahead of opening day against Bromley.

We’re delighted to get Lewis on board. He’s young, strong, athletic and has loads of potential. He’s an excellent left-footed defender and gives us good competition for places. He is a player who is only going to get better with game timeJamie Vermiglio

*Watch Lewis transform from Trialist (6) to a named squad member this Saturday when we entertain FC United of Manchester (3pm). Admission £7.50 adults, £5 12-16s & FREE season ticket holders/under-12s
