Ben Heneghan day: Chester FC fans react on Twitter two years on from famous cross-border derby win

Chester beat Wrexham 2-1 two years ago on this day in the first televised match since reforming - and here's how Blues fans are reacting

It's Ben Heneghan day, Chester FC fans!

Two years ago to this very day, Heneghan scored a stoppage-time winner to secure a 2-1 win for Chester at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.

The first of two 2014/15 meetings between the two clubs started badly as Blaine Hudson - who this summer crossed the divide - gave the visitors a second-minute lead from a rebound.

But Wrexham could not add to their advantage, with both Wes York and Connor Jennings spurning presentable opportunities before Craig Hobson slotted home a John Rooney cross to draw Chester level.

And then, with just seconds to go, Heneghan popped up at the back post behind two Dragons defenders to turn home a left-wing Kingsley James cross - and send the Lookers Vauxhall into raptures.

Chester's overall record since their 2010 reformation in the cross-border derby reads three wins, two defeats and a solitary draw, which came in the 2013/14 season.

In 2013/14 they won 2-0 at the Racecourse and drew 0-0 at home, they lost 1-0 in the other 2014/15 meeting and last season saw Chester win 3-2 at home and Wrexham prevail 3-0 in the reverse game.

But the 2-1 home win will live long in the memory of Chester FC supporters, who have been keen to show their appreciation to the 23-year-old, who is now with Motherwell after leaving the Blues in the summer.
