Chester FC maintained their 100% record at the start of the season by beating Solihull Moors 3-0 at Damson Park thanks to goals from Nathan Jarman, Ben Mills and Iain Howard.

The Blues were intent on keeping their fine record from the start of the season intact and took the lead inside 8 minutes when Chester striker Nathan Jarman struck the opening goal thanks to a thunderbolt strike from 20 yards which left keeper Jasbir Singh with no chance whatsoever in the Solihull goal. 

Chester increased their lead on the stroke of half time when loanee Ben Mills netted a header to make the score 2-0 at half time after a cross from Matty McGinn found Jarman at the back post who nodded the ball into Mills' path, and he made no mistake as he made it 5 goals in 5 appearances since his loan move from Macclesfield Town.

Iain Howard then made the 3 points secure when he headed in a close range rebound on 89 minutes to ensure that Chester would take the 3 points back North with them, and make their record 5 wins in 5 games for The Blues when he headed hoke after Marc Williams had seen his effort blocked on the keeper Singh.
