Hannah and James To Leave Chester As Blues Await Liverpool

Chester have confirmed striker Ross Hannah is leaving the club.

Midfielder Kingsley James has also come to an agreement and will leave the Blues.

Both are now looking for new clubs after a settlement was reached following the club’s relegation to the National League North.

“They have conducted themselves superbly and they applied themselves well in pre-season training,” said joint manager Anthony Johnson to the Chester Chronicle.

“We wish them all the best but it is something that we had to get done in order to make sure we could complete our recruitment for next season.”

Chester play Liverpool this weekend with Jurgen Klopp set to field a strong side.

The Premier League giants have handed the club a huge boost by waiving their right to half of the gate receipts.

The game will remain a 3pm kick-off - clashing with England’s match with Sweden.

“Every attempt was made to move the game, but logistically this proved a major challenge,” said Chester in a statement.
