The first of two games in two days lie ahead for Chester FC this evening as they make the journey up the A55 to face Welsh Premier League side Llandudno.
Blues bosses Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley are set to take a fairly strong team up the North Wales Coast for the clash at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, with trialists once against set to get the chance to impress alongside some younger members of the squad.
Chester host League Two side Bury tomorrow at the Swansway Chester Stadium (3pm) with much of their first-team squad expected to be involved, but for some it could be a case of two games in 24 hours.
We'll be live from Llandudno to bring you all the action as it happens as the Blues continue their preparations for the big kick off on August 4 when they welcome Spennymoor Town to the Deva for the National League North opener.
And that's that
Thanks for joining us this evening. We’ll be back tomorrow to do it all over again for the visit of Bury.

Half time thoughts
Half time: Llandudno 0 Chester 0
Blues in total control and very impressive but have lacked a cutting edge. Enjoyable, though.
Trialist B thinks he has scored but his goal bound header from a corner is cleared off the line.
Gary Roberts holds his hands up and apologises to the Blues managers after a short free kick goes all wrong.
“I got my wires crossed,” he yells.
Matty Hughes sees one saved by Pearson as he lets fly from 25 yards. All Chester.
Another flowing Chester move ends with Iwan Murray rasping a fine strike at goal which Pearson looks to have saved. Referee deems it to have hit the side netting.
Great delivery again
Another excellent Roberts ball, this time for Hughes, ends with the striker lashing across the face of goal from an angle.
Good break from Chester ends with Matty Hughes sending an 18 yard effort at Pearson
Chester seeing a lot of the ball so far. No clear cut chances as yet.
Good sweeping move involving Murray, Stopforth and Marsh-Hughes ends with Stopforth being closed down eight yards out.
Free kick in the box eventually falls to Marsh-Hughes whose effort from 18 yards is charged down. 4 mins.
