BLOG – Chester 3-1 Kidderminster

A solid performance from Chester against a poor-looking Kidderminster side saw the Blues run out pretty comfortable 3-1 winners. Despite Chester dominating almost all of the first half, Kidderminster struck first when a deep free-kick was put back across the area for a tap-in. Chester immediately responded with Roberts first being unlucky not to get […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 2 Halifax Town 1

MATCH BLOG – Chester 2 Lincoln City 3

For the third time in a week Chester were involved in a five goal thriller, but for the second time this week they ended on the losing side. Lincoln, a big, bullying, time wasting kind of team came to the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium and looked like the better team for 60 minutes. Rhead – their […]

BLOG – Chester 3-2 Wrexham

A superb performance from Chester saw us once again win the Derby against Wrexham. An unbelievably good free-kick from John Rooney, a cracking, quick counter-attack finished by Tom Shaw, and a pinpoint header from Kane Richards were all quality goals, which contrasted starkly with the dodgy penalty and late, scrambled goal from Wrexham. In truth […]

BLOG – Chester 1-0 Eastleigh

A firm headed goal from Ben Heneghan brought Chester a well-deserved and overdue victory against a niggly Eastleigh side. Overall Chester were far the better side and had excellent opportunities to put the game to bed through Craig Hobson and Ross Hannah. Instead the end of the game was another nervy finish, with Jon Worsnop […]

BLOG – Tranmere 2-0 Chester

A dreadful first half performance from Chester saw Tranmere capitalise on defensive uncertainty to run out comfortable 2-0 winners. Steve Burr switched to a 442 formation for the match, but it was a familiar awful punching attempt from Worsnop (where he took out a better positioned Ben Heneghan mid flail) that allowed Tranmere to score […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 1 Forest Green 2

Chester lost out in a fairly tight game to the richest vegan team in the world. “Fat bastard” (quote) John Parkin missed a penalty early doors after Jon Worsnop mistimed a dive at the feet of their striker who was through before he saved the resulting weak effort. Frear put the vegans ahead just before […]

BLOG – Woking 5-2 Chester

Though the final score looks heavy, in truth the match flattered Woking slightly as the result was heavily influenced by Ben Heneghan’s sending off in the first half an hour. Woking converted the resultant penalty from Heneghan’s foul and added two soon after the break (from two excellent finishes) before Michael Kay scored his first […]

BLOG – Chester 1-1 Cheltenham

A well-deserved point was reward for Chester in an entertaining match against a Cheltenham side that will be towards the business end of the table this season. Ross Hannah’s early stunner was cancelled out by a simple goal for Cheltenham after a defensive mix up and an ill-judged punch from Worsnop. Cheltenham earned their point, […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 1 Braintree Town 0

Chester got off to a winning start in the 2015-16 season thanks to an early Johnny Hunt goal when he cut inside from a short corner and some very good defending as the Blues were put under pressure for long periods of the game. Chances wise it went all Chester’s way with Braintree really failing […]
