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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
