Chester FC continued their pre-season campaign as a youthful side claimed a 4-2 win at Upton AA.
Played at Chester County Sports Club, the Blues were taking on the West Cheshire League side as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations and the young side put in a solid performance.
Goals from trialist Oscar Durnin, formerly of Tranmere Rovers and who is the son of ex-Portsmouth striker John Durnin, fellow trialist Alex Hughes and strikers Tom Peers and Sean Miller secured the victory for Steve Burr's men.
With the Blues playing their first home friendly of the season against League One side Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, manager Steve Burr used the match as a chance to give youth a chance to shine with a number of players who have progressed through the club's youth system on show.
The Blues raced into a two-goal lead inside 20 minutes with Durnin opening the scoring before Miller fired home.
Upton battled and reduced the arrears in the 21st minute when Nathan Mapletoft netted. But Hughes, a striker who played in the Cheshire League for Malpas last season, restored the two-goal cushion before Peers tapped home to make it 4-1.
Upton player-boss Todd Reid came off the bench to snatch one back late on but it was the young Chester side who claimed the win.
The Blues entertain the Railwaymen on Saturday (3pm) with the game being the last chance for Chester fans to take advantage of the club's early bird season ticket offer, with fans able to purchase tickets pre and post game.
