Chasetown FC midfielder turns down Hednesford Town switch

Chasetown FC midfielder Richard Batchelor has turned down a move to Hednesford Town.

The Pitmen had approached Batchelor about a move to Chasetown’s neighbours, but the midfielder has now opted to stick with the Scholars.

Manager Charlie Blakemore told the club’s website:

“I am really pleased he has decided to stay. He has turned down a substantially better offer financially to continue his development as a player with us.

“I feel there is more to come from Rich. He has really settled in well at the club in his first year and he can now push on and be one of the best midfield players at this level and achieve success at Chasetown. He can see for himself that this club has great stability and a really good long term future and he wants to help drive us to further success.”
