Dont want to dampen enthusiasm but on Chorleys website was the following item
Alex Newby joined us from Clitheroe in February 2018 and was an influential figure during our promotion-winning season in 2018/19. He’ll be remembered for winning the goal-of-the-season award in all three campaigns he played for the Magpies and leaves Victory Park having played 94 games, matched with 22 goals.
Alex has progressed magnificently during his time with us and scored some very important goals. He now feels in a position with his contract expired to find a League club where he can continue his progress – Jamie Vermiglio
