Comunicado Oficial: Steve Francis


Chelsea have acquired another signing this summer, but it's not on the pitch.

Steve Francis has left Aldershot Town to join the Blues in an 'exciting opportunity'.

In a statement from Aldershot Town Chairman Shaheed Azeem, he said:

"This was an opportunity we couldn’t stand in the way of and we thank him for all his hard work and dedication throughout the years and travelling the length and breadth of the country working for the club.

"Unfortunately we haven’t been able to negotiate a transfer or sell on clause with Chelsea for his departure but he is always welcome back at the EBB Stadium nonetheless!"

Welcome, Steve!
