ENTERTAINING POINT FOR BLUES

Chester and King’s Lynn Town shared four goals in an entertaining encounter at The Walks on Non-League Day on Saturday. Chester fell behind on two minutes after poor clearance from Russell Griffiths was intercepted by Adam Marriott who shot past the Chester ‘keeper into the bottom corner.

Two goals in seven second half minutes saw hester fight back and take the lead as Simon Grand equalised from close range on 56 minutes following a Matty Hughes cross, and Akwasi Asante put the Blues in front following a fine cross field pass from George Glendon that set up a Bradley Jackson cross.

The home side fought back and were level on 77 minutes as Marriott scored his second of the game with a well taken goal from the edge of the box.

Joint manager Anthony Johnson told the Chester Chronicle: “I thought some of the performances, and as a team, was very good. On Non-League Day, with a big crowd it was a great game.”

“It took us three days to get here on planes, trains and automobiles. Overnight stays, beef and ale pie for tea last night, it’s been a long few days. To come to third in the league and get so close to winning, being 2-1 up after being 1-0 down, it’s a bit galling but ultimately I think a point was a fair result.”

“They were a typical team, like Alty last year, who have been promoted and have no fear whatsoever. But we never bought into the notion that they were underdogs, not when you’ve got those two, Michael Gash and Marriott, up top. They are a good side with good players and I fully expect them to be top three of four, definitely. All in all it was pretty pleasing.”

The draw keeps Chester in second place, next up is a trip to bottom of the table Blyth Spartans on Saturday, kick-off 15.00hrs.
