RADCLIFFE DEFEAT

Chester opened their pre-season campaign with a 3-1 defeat at Radcliffe on Saturday. A number of trialist’s took part in the game which was a good work out for the Blues against a side playing their sixth warm-up game. Danny Elliott scored the consolation Chester goal in the last minute.

Manager Johnson told the Chester Chronicle: “I was delighted to see Danny Elliott get his goal as it is important for strikers to hit the back of the net in pre-season going into the campaign as it builds up the confidence.”

“He’s off the mark, took his goal well and he can build on that. I thought some other performances shone through as well, George Glendon looked sharp and John Johnston had a great game on the right hand side.”

“We’ve got a great squad, one we’re delighted with and we’ll get better and better as we progress.”
