The Liverpudlian signed his first professional contract with the Seasiders in November 2020 and has been selected for Scotland Under-19s this season.

Blackpool chief executive Ben Mansord recently said of Apter: “He’s really embraced the loan move to Bamber Bridge and I suspect there will be interest in Rob from higher leagues.

"We’ll use the loan window to continue to develop him. I’m pleased one of our brightest young players has committed his long-term future to the club.”

Chester operate a level above Brig and drew with AFC Fylde last week.

Apter made his first two senior appearances for Blackpool last season, including an EFL debut as a substitute in the 5-0 win at Wigan Athletic.
