Newly formed fan club AFC Bury have announced the signing of experienced midfielder Harry Brazel. Brazel has been added to the Bury squad to boost the team ahead of the start of the new season. The midfielder gas joined Bury on non-contract terms.



Brazel previously spent time at clubs like Cefn Druids and Stockport County. The 29-year-old player signed for Stockport County from Winsford United in January 2017.

Brazel was not involved as Bury suffered a 4-2 defeat to Chester in a friendly game played at the weekend. Both Chester and Bury are fan-owned clubs. All the six goals scored in their friendly match came in the second half.

Chester were pegged back by Bury twice before Harrison Burke and James Hardy struck in the final 15 minutes to win the game. The two late goals gave Chester the 4-2 victory. George Glendon and Matty Williams had earlier scored for Chester, while the two goals from Glendon and Williams were twice cancelled out by the Bury goals from Jono Hunt and Scott Metcalfe.

The two teams didn’t struggle to create chances especially Chester who were the better side. New Chester signing Dan Cowan had the first real chance of the game when he headed wide from a cross from the aforementioned Glendon. Moments later Chester shot stopper Louis Gray had to be on alert to tip the attempt from Tom Greaves around the post.

New Chester signing Darren Stephenson should have put his team ahead on ten minutes when he was put through on goal only for him to be denied by Bury goalkeeper Jack Atkinson while he was trying to round him up.

The best chance of the first half fell to Anthony Dudley whose penalty struck the foot of the post after Cowan was fouled in the Bury box.

There were a lot of missed chances in the first half and the goals scored in the second half more than made up for those missed opportunities.
