FA CUP DRAW

Chester have been drawn at home to City of Liverpool FC in the FA Cup Second Qualifying round, the match is due to take place on Saturday 22 September. Prize money for the match is £9,000. City of Liverpool play in the North West Counties League Premier Division and have won four of their opening five games this season. They are a fan owned club that have only been in existence for three years.

Blues joint manager Anthony Johnson said: “You want to be out the hat first and we were last year and we were again this year. They will be well up for it and they are smashing everyone in sight at that level of football so they will be flying for it. They’ve got some good players, too. Jamie McDonald was great for Warrington and Craig Cairns bags 30 a season at that level so they will carry a threat. It’s a great tie and both sides will be bang up for it and it should be a great game.”

BLUES FIGHT BACK TO WIN THRILLER

Chester's long wait to stage their second home game of the season was well worth the wait as they came from behind to beat Bradford (Park Avenue) 5-3. Avenue took the lead as early as the fourth minute only for Dan Mooney to restore parity two minutes later. On 12 minutes fine work from Simon Grand wet up Anthony Dudley who header Chester into a 2-1 lead. Matty Hughes and Mooney went close before Craig Mahon scored the third just after the half hour. The visitors pulled a goal back moments before half-time as Jake Beesley, son of former Chester defender Paul, shook off a shaky Chester defence to score from close range.

Eight minutes into the second half Bradford drew level with Oli Johnson bundling the ball home. Chester restored their lead on 74 minutes with a superb through ball from mahon finding Mooney who curled a shot into the bottom corner of the goal. Ten minutes from time Luke Jordan came on for his debut and the youngster won a penalty in added time that was concerted for Dudley to seal the three points.
