CHESTER CITY chairman Stephen Vaughan is delighted with progress at the Deva Stadium after seeing a number of the youth players break into the senior ranks.
Defender Robert Marsh-Evans and strikers Paul Rutherford and Chris Holroyd are part of the City first team squad this season and Vaughan is naturally proud.
"When I came to the club five years ago the development of youth players was non-existent.
"Thanks to the hardwork of Jim Hackett and Mark Newman we have rebuilt our youth system from scratch. It is satisfying to see these youngsters breaking through into the first team and making their way in the game."
