CHESTER City, unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup last Saturday by UniBond League club Barrow, will endeavour to strengthen their squad this week by entering the transfer market and making a bid for ex-Everton central-defender Neil Moore.
The club's owner, Stephen Vaughan, said last night: "I was extremely disappointed with the way we capitulated in the second half at Barrow.
"Most of the players will get one more chance, when they visit Yeovil next Saturday, but it is obvious that we need to strengthen our squad. We will make a bid for Neil Moore, who is currently with Telford United."
The Merseyside-based boxing promoter continued: "Steve Mungall and myself are aware that we need to strengthen the squad and we have identified the players we are interested in.
"A repeat of last weekend's showing just won't be tolerated."
The 24-year-old Moore, who was a regular in Everton's reserve team in the late '90s, is likely to be valued at around £10,000 by cash-strapped Telford, who announced over the weekend that they were reverting to part-time professional status.
Vaughan also confirmed he was taking advice about "winding up" the current Chester City Football Club Limited, and reforming the company.
"We are taking legal advice and talking to all the relevant parties. I will be in a position to make an announcement in the next couple of weeks."
