Hall makes costly error

Freddy Hall, the Bermuda goalkeeper, endured a difficult night in Telford United's 2-0 defeat against Chester, his former club, in the Vanarama Premier on Tuesday.

Hall, who was in superb form in his side's 1-1 draw against high-flying Grimsby Town last weekend, was at fault for at least one of Chester's goals after attempting to punch a cross that he failed to reach allowing Matt Brown to head home the opener.

The 29-year-old redeemed himself quickly though when he got down low to deny Rhys Oates after a defensive error by Steve Akrigg, and then made a routine save just before half-time from a Matty Hughes effort.

Hall conceded again in the 76th minute when his clearance appeared to strike team-mate Andy Parry under pressure from Oates before ricocheting into the net.

Liam Watson, the Telford manager, said: “We put in a good performance against Grimsby but we haven't managed to get back-to-back performances let alone back-to-back wins.

“We changed at half-time to be a little bit more proactive but then the game changed within ten minutes when they score from a corner that we should have never conceded and Freddy Hall has come for it, got nowhere near it and it is a free header.”

Hall, a former St George's Colts player, has largely been in impressive form since joining Telford from Oxford City, who play in the league below, the Conference North, in October.
