FRIENDLY | Blues win behind closed doors game against Accrington Stanley today at the Deva

    Akwasi Asante and Cain Noble (2) were on the scoresheet this lunchtime as the Blues beat an Accrington Stanley XI 3-0 at the Deva Stadium in a behind closed doors friendly match.

    Asante tapped home after 22 minutes following Danny Elliott’s effort which was saved by the keeper, as the striker got 30 minutes under his belt as he steps up his recovery from injury.

    Two headers from substitute Cain Noble in the second half came from a pinpoint Matty Waters cross and a superb Regan Rubin delivery.

    Rubin, Jake Hampson and Tom Ruffer – all from the Youth Team – played the last half an hour. Meanwhile, first year scholar defender Harrison Burke played the full 90 minutes at the back.

    We’d like to thank Accrington for providing the opposition for today’s game and wish them all the very best for the remainder of the season.

    CHESTER FC: Griffiths; Morgan (Thomson 68), Burke, Macready, Waters, Crilly, G Roberts (Ruffer 57), Murray (Noble 57), Elliott (Hampson 57), Dudley (Rubin 57), Asante (Hayes 30).

    SCORERS: Akwasi Asante 22, Cain Noble 66 & 75.
