Former Chester City captain Phil Bolland faces an uncertain future following his recent release from Chester’s non-league rivals Wrexham.

Bolland joined the Dragons from City during the January transfer window alongside Gavin Ward but the experienced pair couldn’t stop the Welsh club from avoiding the dreaded drop into the Conference.

Whilst Ward has been kept on by Brian Little, Bolland hasn’t been offered a new deal and is left with his future up in the air.

After returning to City from Peterborough United in 2005, Bolland has settled back in the North West once again and with a young baby in the household is reluctant to move away from the area if he can avoid it.

The veteran defender has already touted his name around the areas clubs and is hopeful of getting himself fixed up sooner rather than later.

‘I’ve spoken to league clubs and non-league clubs in the North West and now I’m weighing up my options,’ he told the Evening Leader.

‘I’ve had a couple of weeks off to think about my situation and I’ve kept myself fit like I normally do when the season finishes.

‘But I’m not moving anywhere because I feel as if I have a decent reputation at a few clubs locally and I’d like to train with a squad of players as the season nears.

‘I’m sure I’ll be fixed up in pre-season, but it’s just nice at the moment to be out of a football environment.’

What do you think? Does Bolland deserve to be without a football club this summer? Join in the debate and post your thoughts here are Vital Chester City.
