MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 2 Braintree Town 3

Chester went down to a poor Braintree side by managing to play more poorly. In what was the worst game you’ll ever see with five goals in, Chester went ahead, went behind, drew level and then threw away a point a minute later. The game was marked by both sides making lots of errors, neither […]

MATCH BLOG – Halifax Town 0 Chester FC 2

Chester turned around their fortunes after a dismal performance just two days ago to beat Halifax. A Matty Brown header and a Tom Peers diving header secured the points for the Blues who thoroughly deserved to win. Halifax did come close twice to scoring but two good saves from Worsnop denied them and Chester had […]

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.

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 0 Barnsley 3

Chester FC crashed out of the FA Cup after taking League One Barnsley to a replay. In truth the Blues were poor on the night and couldn’t match up to their displays in the competition so far giving Barnsley too much space in midfield and giving the ball away in our own half repeatedly. Barnsley […]

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 […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 2 Alfreton Town 1

Chester left it late, again, to take all three points against a poor Alfreton side. The away team struck first from a well-taken breakaway goal but it was Chester who dominated the play, made more chances and looked like the only likely winner. Matty Hughes grabbed his second goal in three games after bringing the […]
