BLOG – Chester 4-1 Stalybridge. Post Match Thoughts

Chester crusied to victory in snowy conditions after a fantastic effort from club volunteers got this game going ahead. A fantastic first half saw the home side 3-0 up by the break courtesy of Nathan Jarman, George Horan and Marc Williams. The visitors pulled one back through Jack Laird, but a late scorcher by Wes Baynes added gloss to the scoreline.

1. Volunteers

Well, take a bow. Only game to go ahead in the BSN today thanks to you people. It really shone through today how much we value OUR club. It was a real effort to get this game on and it was somehow managed, just wow. The attendance too -2,095 – was top notch. The fans were dealt a blow of not being able to go into the sacred Harry Mac Terrace but the noise was brilliant in the stands that were filled and for that amount of people to turn up with the conditions as bad as they are was brilliant, proves how much this club means to everyone.

2. Loans

Three interesting ones. Nathan and Lewis Turner on loan until the end of the season from Leeds. Nathan has looked very capable in the middle and hopefully his twin will be just as good! Big question is, has Youngie brought them in to heat up competition for places, or has he signed the pair for a twin rivalry with the Bellis brothers? Also Craig Curran’s loan ends on the 26th January, hopefully we can get this one extended, he has certainly made a crucial difference since arriving, added some football league flair to the side.

3. Wes Baynes and his wand

The title sounds really wrong, so apologies. But he has the best right peg in the non league I believe. Has the technical ability of a Championship player, and can hit the ball for miles. His goal today was another top strike. A 30 yard scorching volley that screamed into the back of the net. All the goals he’s ever scored for the club are good enough to win goal of the season awards in any division,  Wes is a super player that can go a long way with the club.

4. 16 Points Clear

Teams may have hundreds of games in hand on us but the gulf in class between us and the rest in this league is scary. It showed again today, Stalybridge are a good team with a great manager but the way we moved the ball and outplayed them in the first half was just incredible. We have had one bad 45 minutes in this division at Boston which cost us an unbeaten streak but apart from that we have been invincible. Neil Young is a top manager with a top squad and we really are blessed at this football club.

    Great write up and a very fair reflection of what happened today, very often when volunteers are asked for it’s a hard core of people that turn up, if that had been the case yesterday it certainly wouldn’t have been game on so great that so many rallied to the call to really prove it’s our city, our community, our club. Cannot disagree with what’s said about him especially as my husband and I are his sponsors.
