Kole Hall opened his goal tally with Chester in spectacular fashion in the Vanarama National League North at the weekend.

The 23-year-old Bermuda forward was on target in a hard-fought 2-0 win over Brackley Town in their home league opener on Saturday.

Hall opened the scoring at Deva Stadium in the twelfth minute with a brilliant solo effort worth every penny of the admission fee.

The visitors failed to negotiate a throw in into their own half, which Hall latched on to before dribbling between two defenders and calmly firing a left-footed shot past the advancing goalkeeper into the far bottom corner.

Hall took to social media to express his delight over getting off the mark in a Chester shirt and his team’s first win of the season.

“Three points. We needed this and I’m also happy to open my account,” he posted on his Twitter account. “I love this game.”

Kurt Willoughby doubled Chester’s advantage five minutes later with another beautiful finish after being picked out by a pass from Anthony Dudley, one of four changes manager Calum McIntyre made to his squad from that which was held to a 2-2 draw against Alfreton Town in the season opener.

Both teams created chances as the game progressed, with the home side having an appeal for a penalty after Hall was brought down in the area waved off by the referee.

Ultimately, Hall and Willoughby’s tallies were more than enough to secure the points for Chester in front of their own fans.

It was the perfect response for Hall and his fellow team-mates having squandered a two-goal advantage in the Alfreton match seven days earlier.
