Former Chester City loan star Paul Ellender has made a switch to a new club in non-league circles.

Blue Square North club Alfreton Town are the latest club to have recruited a former Chester City player by snapping up Paul Ellender.

The 33-year-old, 6’1” Scunthorpe-born central defender began his career with Gainsborough Trinity where he had four seasons before moving on to Altrincham and then to Scarborough.

He became Boston United’s record signing when he joined them for £80,000 from Scarborough at the start of the 2001/02 season.

He then spent the next seven seasons at York Street where he was described as ‘the heart and soul of United’, becoming club captain.

A player of vast experience, he made 275 appearances for the Pilgrims whom he led to the Nationwide Conference title before having five years at the heart of the Boston defence in the Football League.

Had a one month loan at Chester City in early 2006 before rejoining League Two rivals Boston United.

Everybody at Vital Chester City wishes Paul all the best as his new club.
