Player Information Not Yet Complete
Full Name: Sean Newton
Normal Position: Defender
Born: 23/09/1988

A product of the club’s youth system, Newton signed professional forms with Chester City in May 2007. He made his first-team debut for the Blues on 1 January 2008 against Grimsby Town at left-back, after being an unused substitute in previous matches.

Newton spent time on loan with Southport in the early weeks of the 2007–08 season, allowing him to gain first-team experience. This spell included him scoring from a free-kick against Tamworth. After thirteen league and four cup appearances, he returned to Chester City in November 2007.

At the end of February 2008, Newton and teammate Stephen Vaughan joined Droylsden on loan, where he enjoyed regular first–team football for the remainder of the season.

Newton was in the headlines on 24 December 2008, the day after he played in an FA Cup Second Round FA Cup replay against Chesterfield. Newton scored twice for Droylsden in a 2-1 victory to secure a third round tie against Ipswich Town. However, it emerged after the game that Newton was due to serve a one game suspension on the day after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season on 9 December. Droylsden had been informed of the suspension by the Football Association on 10 December. This meant that Newton was ineligible to play in the game against Chesterfield. The FA investigated the incident with the matter dealt with by an FA Cup committee on 29 December, after which the three clubs involved were informed of the decision, which was that the club were expelled from the competition, after being found guilty of fielding an ineligible player
