Freddy Hall, Chester FC Fall To Halifax Town

August 26, 2014

Freddy Hall continues to work hard to help his Chester FC club turn their early season around, but, just as his “string of saves” wasn’t enough to avoid a 2-1 loss to the Forest Green Rovers earlier this month, he and his teammates fell 3-0 to Halifax Town over the weekend [Aug 23].

According to the Chester FC’s club report, “Chester FC endured another tough afternoon at home to league leaders Halifax Town. The visitors took the lead through Richard Peniket in the first half before goals from Scot Boden and Matty Pearson sealed a comfortable victory for the Shaymen.

“The visitors nearly got off to the perfect start as Chester’s defence was slow to react to a cross and Richard Peniket fired an effort over the bar from 12 yards out.

“Moments later and Halifax got in again after Chester failed to deal with another ball into the box and Paul Marshall forced Freddy Hall into making a good save.

“Chester were able to get themselves back in the game and John Rooney fired wide from 35 yards before Sean McConville’s cross was just too far ahead of Iwelumo.

“The impressive Jamie Jackson forced Hall into action again though, firing low from the edge of the area and the Bermuda International got down well to make the save.

“After a quiet period in the middle of the first half the visitors took the lead. Chester again failed to clear a low cross into the area and the ball broke to Richard Peniket who turned home past Freddy Hall from eight yards out.

“Halifax finally did double their lead in the 70th minute as Scot Boden managed to get some separation between himself and Matty Brown and flicked a perfectly placed header into the top corner passed Freddy Hall.

“The Shaymen did eventually add a third as Matty Pearson slotted the ball under Freddy Hall with the goal at his mercy to complete a fairly comfortable victory for the league leaders.”
