Chester FC earned themselves a pre-season victory over Tranmere Rovers thanks to a second half scorcher from debutant Wes Baynes

Chester FC began their pre-season friendlies on Tuesday evening with a comfortable 1-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers at the Exacta Stadium.
John Danby, Liam Brownhill, Rob Marsh-Evans, Alex Brown, Wes Baynes, Mark Reed and Matty McNeil all made their first appearances for the club as both sides tinkered with their starting line-ups, formations and tactics.

The only down side for the Blues was a knock sustained by Matty McNeil midway through the first half that forced McNeil’s replacement. Up stepped Chris Simm who looked more than comfortable partnering Michael Wilde up front.

Chester began the game brightly with Rob Marsh-Evans sending a speculative effort just wide with only a couple of minutes on the clock, but Tranmere contained the Blues with ease. Just before the half hour mark Josh Labadie tried his luck from just outside the box, rasping a left footer just wide of Danby’s right post.

With eight minutes remaining in the first half, Chester should have taken a deserved lead when Michael Powell found himself well placed, but Tranmere goalkeeper Andy Coughlin produced a decent block to deny the former Southport goal poacher.

The visitors stepped it up after the break but they were soon caught napping. Twelve minutes in, Wes Baynes well and truly announced his arrival at the Exacta Stadium when he found himself in acres of space before despatching a subline left footed volley into the top right corner of the net, given Coughlin no chance.

The goal livened the game up and Jerome Wright was next up to have a go at goal, rifling a speculative effort wide after picking up a loose ball after Simm was denied on the edge of the area. At the other end Tranmere went in search of an equaliser with Andy Robinson despatching a powerful free-kick that forced substitute Adam Judge into an acrobatic block.

The chances continued to fall for both sides with Michael Wilde striking over the bar from an acute angle whilst Rovers’ Arnaldo drifted a low ball across the face of Judge’s goal for their best opportunity of the half.

All in all, an excellent first work out for The Blues, playing in front of an encouraging Exacta Stadium attendance.

Chester FC: Danby (Judge), Brownhill (Stones), Marsh-Evans, Horan, Taylor, Howard (Brown), Wright (Williams), Powell (Barnes), McNeil (Simm), Wilde (Reed), Booth (Baynes).

Attendance: 1,806

Referee: Mike Dean Image

Assistant Referees: P Gibbons, M Cunliffe

Chester FC 2 FC United of Manchester 1: Impressive Blues bounce back in style

CHESTER produced their best performance of the season to win the battle of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League big boys at an electric Exacta Stadium.

Debutant Matty McGinn and top-scorer Matty McNeil fired the Blues into a thoroughly deserved two-goal lead before FC United reduced the deficit to set up a tense finale.

Mike Norton’s 81st-minute header shredded the nerves of the home supporters in the bumper 3,219 crowd, but Neil Young’s team kept their composure to bounce back from their defeat to Hednesford Town on Saturday.

Showing four changes to the side that were beaten late on at Keys Park, Chester were at it from the off and the visitors could have no complaints with the final outcome.


But it was Karl Marginson’s men who started the brighter as Matthew Wolfenden hit the outside of the post from the edge of the area with five minutes on the clock.

Former Wrexham striker Wolfenden was causing plenty of problems at the tip of a midfield diamond. But the hosts – and the excellent Michael Powell in particular – soon got to grips with him, so much so that FC United boss Marginson totally changed his formation eight minutes before the break by making a double substitution.

By that time the Blues were well on top and leading through McGinn’s 17th-minute penalty.

The left-back, who was named man of the match in his first appearance since signing on loan from Southport, sent James Spencer the wrong way after Lee Neville brought the livewire Chris Simm down in the box.

After McNeil headed on to the bar, the advantage was doubled one minute into first half added time.

Goalkeeper John Danby’s long kick was headed into the danger area by captain George Horan and McNeil was on hand to turn in his third goal in four matches from close range.

Chester were rampant and Simm would have added a third moments later had the ball not got stuck under in his foot with the goal at his mercy.

FC United came into the game the restart, but their goal continued to live a charmed life.

Spencer saved from McNeil after a lovely move involving Alex Brown and the impressive Liam Brownhill before Horan cracked the post with an 18-yard drive.

It came against the run of play, then, when Norton nodded in Carlos Roca’s corner nine minutes from time.

The Blues were now under the cosh, but they stood firm and Danby did well to turn Jake Cottrell’s long-range effort around the post in what was the last meaningful shot of an enthralling match.

Chester: Danby, Brownhill, Horan, Smith, McGinn, Booth (Baynes 87), Powell, Brown, Wright (Howard 64), Simm (Reed 83), McNeil. Subs: Rainford, Taylor.

Booked: Brownhill, Simm, McGinn.

Goals: McGinn 17, McNeil 45.

FC United: Spencer, Battersby, Jones, Stott, Neville, Carr (Roca 38), Cottrell, Platt (Grimshaw 73), Wolfenden, Deegan (Torpey 38), Norton. Subs: Metcalfe, Chadwick.

Booked: Neville, Battersby.

Referee: Jonathan Hunt (Liverpool).

Attendance: 3,219.
