Mannix & Harris Sacked

Chester City have terminated the contracts of both David Mannix & Jay Harris, who were involved in betting scandals last season.

The two former Accrington Stanley players have been given their marching orders, and will now face a battle to find other clubs to play for in the future once they have served their bans from the game.

Hopefully this means that Chester will now be able to strengthen the squad in key areas now, with 2 midfield places available in their absence.

City have signed centre back Chris Lynch and midfielder Adam Kay from Burnley arriving at the Deva in the new days also. Lynch, who is in his first year as a professional, stands at 6ft 3 and could fit in defence quite easily at present, considering it has shipped in 8 goals in it's first 2 games of the season, whilst Kay is in his second year in the game, and spent a spell at Accrington Stanley last season.

The two are expected to go straight into the squad that faces Luton Town at Kenilworth Road tomorrow afternoon.

Elsewhere, Chester have re-arranged their home game against Gateshead Town to Tuesday 15th September.
