CHESTER CITY last night gave a trial to the former Liverpool goalkeeper Paul Harrison, in their Pontin's League game against Tranmere Rovers at the Deva Stadium.
Harrison, who has just been released by Wolver-hampton Wanderers, was a regular member of the Liverpool reserve side last season, and occasionally named as a substitute for their first team.
The 21-year-old impressed City's new manager Mark Wright during last night's 2-2 draw and saved a penalty, and he has been invited in for training with the first team squad this morning, and it is expected City will try to agree financial terms with him.
Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan said: "Paul impressed us when he was on trial down here at the beginning of the season, but we lost out to Wolves, however, he is now a free agent again and we are certainly interested in acquiring his services."
City have a mini injury crisis as they prepare for Saturday's trip to promotion-chasing Grimsby Town. Central defenders Luke Dimech and Dave Artell are both doubtful because of injury, so Chester are attempting to bring in replacements on loan.
"There could well be quite a lot of movement playerwise in the next few days, we will just have to see what develops," said Vaughan.
