Chester land duo

Chester City have signed Robbie Foy and Ashley Sestanovich this week.

Chester City have been boosted by the addition of two new players to their League Two squad.

Liverpool youngster Robbie Foy joins Ian Rush's side on a month's loan while former Sheffield United midfielder Ashley Sestanovich arrives on a free transfer.

Foy, 19, has been a regular in the Anfield club's reserves this season and can play either as an attacking midfielder or a striker.

Sestanovich (pictured) arrives at The Saunders Honda Stadium after being released by Championship side Sheffield United earlier this week.

The winger struggled to earn a regular first team football at Bramall Lane, having spent time on loan with Conference club Scarborough and League Two rivals Grimsby Town recently.

Sestanovich played in Gillingham's reserves on Tuesday before deciding on a move to the League Two side instead. 

Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan was delighted with the new arrivals and hopes to land Foy on a permanent basis in the future.

"Both these signings are extremely exciting," Vaughan told the Daily Post. "Robbie has had an excellent grounding at Anfield.

"Hopefully it will lead to a permanent deal, but in the short term, Robbie will be a great addition.

"Sestanovich has gained experience this season with Grimsby, so he knows football at this level."

Chester's pursuit for new players has led them to enquire about Tranmere Rovers midfielder David Beresford.

The 28-year-old is out of contract at Prenton Park at the season's end and Chester are keen to bring him to their side.

"We have made an approach to Tranmere about David Beresford's availability," added Vaughan.

"Hopefully, we will get a positive response, and we can take the matter forward.

"We are building for the future at Chester City. Obviously, we want to finish as strongly as we can, but we are also already preparing for next season."

Meanwhile, the Luton Town duo of David Bayliss and Ian Hillier have returned to their parent club after a loan spell with Chester.
