Former Wales under-18 Academy goalkeeper Lewis Dutton has signed a pre-contract agreement to join the Magpies from Cymru Premier side TNS for the 2020/21 season.
The 19-year-old, who skippered his country in 2019, will act as back-up to Matt Urwin as he continues his footballing education as part of the new Chorley FC Player Pathway.
I’m really happy have signed for an ambitious club like Chorley, a club that has set their sights on promotion. I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my career and continuing my development as a footballer – Lewis Dutton
Lewis spent nine years in the TNS youth system and made his first team debut in December against Mold Alexandra in the Welsh Cup.
We’re happy to have Lewis on board as a young player with a lot of ability and loads of potential. We’ve had excellent scouting reports, watched him a number of times and once again he fits the profile of player we’re trying to attract to the club – Jamie Vermiglio
