BLOG – Aldershot 0-1 Chester

A beautiful day in the sun saw Chester reach the 60 point mark with a decent performance against Aldershot. Chester had the better of the first half and went in at the break with the lead after John Rooney converted a softly given penalty after a foul on Oli McBurnie. Chester could have had a few […]

BLOG – Welling 1-3 Chester. Post match thoughts

A solid performance on a poor pitch saw Chester comfortably win against a decent, if limited, Welling side. The Wings scored the archetypal ‘against the run of play’ goal to take the lead in the first half, but Chester soon replied through an excellent Higgins cross and McBurnie header. Shortly after Welling’s Gallagher put in […]

BLOG – Chester 0-2 Altrincham

A poor performance saw Chester fall to a defeat against a well-drilled Altrincham side. Two goals conceded from two set pieces saw Alty edge ahead and the Blues never looked like being able to peg them back, with far too many promising positions being wasted. Chester have now only won once, on December 2nd against […]

BLOG – Barnsley 0-0 Chester

A great performance from the Blues was not quite enough to see us into the Third Round, though we will be in the draw on Monday. The game saw Chester hit the crossbar, have the ball cleared off the line twice and force the Barnsley keeper into an amazing save, though Barnsley rallied late on […]

BLOG – Dartford 2-4 Chester

A thrilling second half fightback against the Darts saw Chester grab all three points. Down 2-0 going into the 50th minute, it looked like the Blues would have gone the way down south for nothing once again, but a quick brace from Craig Mahon brought us level, before an excellently worked move saw Matty Hughes […]

BLOG – Stockport 2-4 Chester

A superb cup tie saw Chester through to the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time in aaaaaaages (we’ve fact checked that) and for the first time as a reformed club. Sean McConville was the hero and villain of the day. Roundly booed by County fans he stole the show with two […]

BLOG – Dover 2-0 Chester

A dull game on the south coast saw Dover grab the three points due to having the better of the luck in the game. An own goal and a well finished header after a terrible shot found a Dover shirt in a great crossing position meant Chester’s long trip down was in vain, but that […]

BLOG – Chester 1-0 Macclesfield. Post Match Thoughts

John Rooney’s superb free-kick on 15 minutes was enough to separate Chester from a Macclesfield side that rarely looked like threatening. The game was far from a classic, with possession being turned over too quickly from both sides, but the Blues just about edged it, producing the best of the play and a few excellent […]

BLOG – Chester 0-3 Halifax. Post Match Thoughts

An awful second half performance saw Chester lose their second home game of the season to a rather decent looking Halifax side. Chester created little and unfortunately defended little too. An unwise combination that had ‘season of struggle’ written all over it. Here are the post match thoughts I’ve had that don’t involve swearing. 1. […]
