CHESTER’S scheduled pre-season friendly match at Airbus on Tuesday night has been cancelled.

The fixture has been called off due to the advice from North Wales Police who made three arrests at the Blues’ pre-season match at Colwyn Bay on Saturday.

Airbus chairman Paul McKinlay commented: "It’s a huge disappointment for all concerned at both clubs, at no point did we expect any such trouble at the Airfield on July 20, indeed we expected a real celebratory feel to the evening in what would have been an excellent game of football, however despite our thoughts we must of course accept the decisions of the authorities who have to protect public safety."
