Chester and Wirral Football League round up, 19 August 2023

Last season Shaftsbury Youth agonisingly missed out on the title by goal difference as Blacon Youth secured the title on the last day of the season.

Shaftes will be hoping to finally go one better this season and on Saturday secured a superb 3-2 win against Blacon Youth, courtesy of goals from Alfie Naylor, Steve Large, and Paul Kane to make it two wins from two.

FC Farndon, who won the Olympic Trophies Championship last season and will be confident of mounting a challenge for the Premier Division title, carried on where they left off as ace marksman Lee Parry netted six times. New signing Danny Mongon also got in on the act with a double whilst Matty Sheridan and Sam Davenport both got singles as Farndon won 10-1 against Sutton Rangers whose goal came from Callum Lang.

Trey Lattie netted for Chester Nomads Reserves but Waggon & Horses fired back with a Harley Bennion double and a single from Billy Fennell to secure the points for Waggon.
