BLUES HELD AT TELFORD
Nearly 1,000 Chester
fans made the trip to the New Bucks Head to see
Chester draw 0-0 at AFC Telford United on Boxing
Day. The Blues gave a debut to defender Alex Brown,
one of four changes to the side beaten by Farsley
in the FA Trophy, Kole Hall, Liam Edwards and Kevin
Roberts also made the starting X1 with Iwan Murray,
Joe Lynch and Adam Thomas starting on the bench.
It was a game of few chances with the home side
having the better of those with harry Tyrer saving
well to deny Brendon Daniels from his free kick.
The Chester shot-stopper also denied substitute
Nathan Blissett late on.

their highest crowd of the season on a cold foggy
Friday night as 2,268 saw the Blues overcome a dogged

but failed to create any clear cut chances to test
home ‘keeper Harry Tyrer. It was Chester who
