Football: Vaughan turns down move to Boston.
CHESTER CITY last night turned down an approach from fellow League Two side Boston United to take City skipper Stephen Vaughan on loan.
Boston currently only have 14 fit players available, and manager Steve Evans wanted Vaughan to join prior to their trip to Barnet this evening.
However, last night Vaughan turned down the proposed move. "I am extremely flattered by the approach from Boston, but I am the Chester captain, and I am Chester City through and through. I want to be a part of the progress we will make this season.
"We have a great bunch of players here at the Deva, and while the results in the last few games haven't gone for us, when this new squad gels it will be a force to be reckoned with."
Evans said: "In my opinion the boy is excellent in a number of positions, and when I watched him recently, against a very good Wrexham side, he was outstanding."
Chester are in action tonight when they entertain seventh-placed Notts County at the D eva .
City will be anxious to record a victory this evening, after a five game winless run which has seen them pick up just one point from 15.
Chester assistant manager Graham Barrow said: "They have had quite a good start to the season, but we know we have to improve in the final third.
"The weekend defeat at Wycombe was disappointing, we all know the performance wasn't good enough, and we are keen to record a victory against Notts County. "
Chester City (from): Danby, Palethorpe, Marples, Vaughan, Sandwith, Linwood, Artell, Westwood, Wilson, Hand, Martinez, Blundell, Broughton, Rutherford, Holroyd, Allen.
