CHESTER CITY look poised to add another player to their large squad with the club interested in signing the Stalybridge Celtic midfield player Richard Peacock.
Ironically, the 29-year-old was one of the few Celtic successes in last Saturday's Nationwide Clash at Bower Fold which City won 4-0.
Peacock started his football league career with Hull City, where he was a team-mate of Chester's captain Gary Brabin. He then moved to Lincoln City three season ago.
The player, who is on non-contract terms with Stalybridge, made 242 football league appearances, scoring 27 goals.
Chester's directors are holding one of their regular-board meetings today, with one of the items to be discussed the sale of shares of the club to the Chester City SupportersTrust.
City chairman Stephen Vaughan said last night: "It is likely that we will approve the sale of shares to the Trust, which, of course, means that by definition-they will probably be granted one seat on the club's board of directors.
"It is well-documented that I am happy to involve fans in the running of the club and the Trust are keen to get involved with the club in the boardroom so it seems a perfect solution to both parties' aspirations."
Meanwhile, Chester are preparing for their next match which sees them visit UniBond League leaders Burton Albion on Saturday in the FA Umbro Trophy sixth round.
Central defender Mark Williams and midfield player Sean Carey are both cup-tied and will miss the trip to the East Midlands but otherwise manager Mark Wright has a full squad to select from. City are unbeaten in their last 13 cup and league outings.
