MATCH BLOG – Chester 5 Nuneaton 3

Chester came out on top in an entertaining game which proved that just because there isn’t something to play for, it doesn’t mean your team can’t put you through the ringer. Chester started abysmally and gave Nuneaton numerous chances which they eventually took, racing into a 2-0 lead (hang on, hasn’t that happened before?). Chester […]

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 […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 1 Dartford 2

In a game where Chester created several openings they were defeated by a side with only one shot on target. A real life case of not taking your chances meant that Chester were defeated by a second bottom side who had only won three away all season. A frustrating night for the side who pretty […]

MATCH BLOG – Wrexham 1 Chester FC 0

Chester went down to an early Wrexham goal in a derby which was scrappy, devoid of quality (except the finish for the goal) and generally difficult to actually watch. The conditions didn’t help, a swirling wind coupled with a dry, bobbly pitch meant that neither side could string many passes together. This led to a […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 0 Eastleigh 1

Both sides produced a fairly turgid performance on a pitch which had been sodden just before kick off from sheets of rain. The pitch cut up and both sides failed to produce football which was easy on the eye. Chester had a few half chances, Eastleigh had a few better chances and eventually took one […]

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 […]

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. Chester have now only won once, on December 2nd against […]

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 […]
