FA TROPHY REPEAT

Chester have once again been drawn away to AFC Telford United in the first round of the FA Trophy. The tie will take place at the New Bucks Head on Saturday 12 December.

LATE GOAL SINKS BLUES

Chester left Tyneside empty handed after a late goal gave the home side all three point. Manager Steve Burr gave debut’s to loan signings Ryan Lloyd and Danny Hattersley as Chester created, but failed to take, several chances in the opening half. The only goal of the game came eight minutes from time when Alex Whitmore defelected a Ryan Bowman shot past Jon Worsnop.

The on-loan defender told the Chester Leader: “The ball came through two sets of legs and I saw it at the last minute and it just hit my leg and went in. It’s just one of those things. It was unlucky but at the end of the day if we were 2-0 up before that happened then it wouldn't have been a problem, but if you don't take your chances then you don’t win the game and that’s the moral of the story.”

LOAN STRIKER SIGNS
Chester have made another loan signing in 23-year-old forward Danny Hattersley who has joined from FC Halifax Town until 19 January 2016. He has made nine appearances for the Shaymen this season.
HANNAH GOAL BRINGS POINT
Ross Hannah’s equaliser in first half added time brought the Blues a point from a hard fought home match against Dover Athletic in difficult wet and windy conditions. Alex Whitmore, signed on loan earlier in the day, made a solid debut in the defence. Ricky Miller opened the scoring with a volley for the Whites following a fine flowing move that gave Jon Worsnop no chance. Hannah poached the equaliser deep into first half stoppage time following a John Rooney free kick that fell loose in the box.

Manager Steve Burr praised the character of his players saying: “I think tonight was one of those where mistakes were going to happen with the conditions, but I’m just pleased we got back into it after going behind – great character shown by the lads. They worked hard tonight.”

PAIR AVAILABLE FOR LOAN

Both Kane Richards and George Thomson are available for loan. BOth have failed to command a regular place in the starting X1 this season. Manager Steve Burr said: “We’ve had a couple of enquiries for those two but as yet there's been no movement. I think it’ll help them to regain a bit of confidence and get some games. That’s what we’ve done with Tom and with Sam too going out to Witton and getting some experience there.”

“I think it’s important that if those lads can get fixed up we do that to get them some games and get their confidence back.”

YOUTH TEAM BEATEN IN EXTRA TIME

A great effort from the youth team who took Oldham Athletic to extra time before eventually losing 3-2 at Boundary Park in the first round of the FA Youth Cup last night. Tom Crawford gave the Blues the lead in the 14th minute only for Oldham striker Rio Murray to equalise on the stroke of half-time. Ten minutes after the break Latics took the lead through Jamie Stott from the penalty spot before Oliver Nugent equalised for Chester to take the game to extra time.

Two minutes before the end of the first period Murray scored his second to give the home side the lead once again. Chester thought they’d leveled matters in the 113th minute with a spectacular 30-yard free-kick that found the net but the referee ruled the effort out for a foul on the goalkeeper.

Chester: Mates, Evans, Waters, Scarisbrick, Savin, Jones, Brown, Dawson ((Exell 34) (Jones 113)), Nugent, Crawford (Mullings 71), Evans. Subs not used: Morton, Ap-Gareth.
