Bala Town vs Chester: Preview
Time for another busy week of action!
We’re into week two of the Blues’ Pre-Season fixture schedule – and tonight we face a trip to Maes Tegid to face Welsh Premier side, Bala Town. Jon McCarthy’s men drew 1-1 at Hyde last time out – with Harry White scoring our goal with an emphatic volley.
The result meant Chester ended the first week of pre-season games unbeaten – having won at both Runcorn and Flint Town on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

Following the game, it was announced on Chester FC TV (below) that Liam Davies had seen his contract extended to a year – while Lucas Dawson had signed a one-year deal himself with the Blues. Also, Evan Horwood left the club and joined – you guessed it – tonight’s opponents Bala.
What about Bala Town?
Bala have been busy in European action recently! Finishing in 3rd last season in the Welsh Premier ensured them a place in the Europa League qualifiers. Unfortunately, they were knocked out by a side from Liechtenstein – FC Vaduz – 5-1 on aggregate. Former Blues at Bala are, of course, Evan Horwood; but also two players from back in the reformation season in 2010 – with Stuart Jones and Mark Connolly in the squad. Who could forget Stuart’s last minute winner at Prescot Cables on New Years Day 2011?
