BLUES UP TO THIRD
Chester put in one of their best home performances of the season on Saturday with a comfortable 3-0 victory over third placed Scarborough Athletic.

Out of the traps quickly, Chester took just nine minutes to open the scoring as Kevin Roberts saw a shot handled in the box following a corner, referee Darren Rogers pointed to the spot and Elliott Whitehouse duly converted the penalty kick.

New loan signing Ben Tollitt was introduced foe the hard working Iwan Murray on the hour mark and minutes later George Glendon doubled the lead following good work down the wing from Tom Peers. Tollitt saw a great effort just clear the crossbar before the visitors were reduced to ten men following a second yellow card for Will Thornton following a push on substitute Charlie Caton.

With the game game deep into added time Peers added a deserved third slotting the ball home from close range after being set-up by Tollitt and Glendon.

The victory moved Chester into third spot in a very tight division where just four points separate Chester from Boston United in 11th place! Next up is a trip on Saturday to Farsley Celtic, kick-off 15.00hrs.

LATE PENALTY EARNS POINT
A last minute penalty from Elliott Whitehouse brought Chester a point from their Tuesday night match at Peterborough Sports. The match, played in difficult conditions on a heavy pitch, looked to be heading from a draw before Josh McCammon gave The Turbines a 73rd minute lead, his third goal in four games against Chester!

With the game heading to added time a Declan Weeks corner was headed against the post by Harrison BUrke, the rebound fell to Tom Peers who was upended in the box. Referee Alex Sawden pointed to the spot and Whitehouse coolly converted.

BLUES HELD AT HOME
Despite playing some good football and dominating for long periods it was a frustrating afternoon for Chester who in the end had to be content with just a point against The Puritans as the sides fought out a -1 draw. Captain George Glendon had given the Blues a 15th minute lead with a clinical finish. Charlie Caton saw a header cleared off the line, with goalkeeper Jack Harding saving the follow up volley from Declan Weeks.

Against the run of play Banbury drew level from the penalty spot on 66 minutes with Emmanuel Maja sending Wyll Stanway the wrong way after the keeper was adjudged to have fouled Ethan FitzHugh.

Chester continued to press, Harrison Burke sent a header wide and Joel taylor hit the cross bar before Chester were gifted a last minute lifeline as Weeks was adjudged to have been fouled in the box, referee Charles Martland pointed to the spot. Up stepped Glendon only to see his spot kick was parried by Jack Harding before being scrambled clear.
