Chester City 4 Chester City All Stars 5
Wayne Brown Testimonial
Attendance: 1,658 Half-Time 1-3


Chester City (from): Wayne Brown, Phil Bolland, Scott Guyett, Andy Harris, Ben Davis, Darryn Stamp, Jamie Heard, Kevin Rapley, Bob Delgado, Tony Durkin, Steve Brodie, Ted Hinnigan.
Chester City All Stars (from): Grenville Millington, Gary Bennett, Ross Davidson, Iain Jenkins, Nick Richardson, Shaun Reid, Nigel Edwards, Joe Hinnigan, Chris Priest, Kevin Ratcliffe, Neil Fisher, John Murphy, James Barrow (Graham’s son, who looked a useful player), and next season’s sponsor Stuart Murphy.

Former City stars turned out in force as Wayne Brown’s testimonial year got off to a successful start with a match that attracted a crowd of over 1,600 to Deva Stadium. The game itself was played in a fun spirit with former hero Bob Delgado lining up in defence for City with Tony Durkin, who bid £400 for his place in the match, also running out for the Whites. For the opposition, Grenville Millington and Nigel Edwards rolled back the years playing in defence alsongside each other once again. Iain Jenkins and Ross Davidson but it was Chris Priest who caught the eye with a great goal from 20 yards to give his side a 3-1 half-time lead.

Substitutes rolled on and off during the second half that saw Steve Brodie reduce the arrears before Wayne himself took the field to a standing ovation for the last 15 minutes or so. Priest couldn’t resist the opportunity to put one past him and did so with another curling long-range effort. Tony Durkin was named man-of-the-match and obliged with goal before Wayne had the last word scoring direct from a free-kick after Jamie Heard had relieved him of his goalkeeping duties.

So all-in-all a memorable day at the Deva with the championship trophy on show to top it.
