PRE-SEASON Blog – Witton Albion 2 Chester FC 1

In the first pre-season game I’ve managed to get to this year Chester treated me to a fairly awful display. Two weeks away from the start of the season we were lackadaisical, uninterested and seriously lacking a goal threat. We gave Witton, and Iain Howard, far too much space which allowed them to create more […]

On the reprieve

It has been 45 days of speculation, rumours, missed deadlines and statements but today it was confirmed that Hereford United have been expelled from the Conference, giving Chester FC a reprieve from relegation. I, personally, haven’t been keeping too much of an eye about the ins and outs of what has been going on in […]

MATCH BLOG – Cambridge United 0 Chester FC 1

Chester took a deserved three points against 2nd placed Cambridge United through a Danny Carlton goal in the first half. Chester had a chance to seal it in the second period but Andy Bond blasted over when well placed. Aaron Chapman was the last hero on the day when he pulled the ball off of […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 0 Wrexham 0

Two sides lumped balls high in the air at each other and repeatedly headed them away with practically nothing interesting happening in the mean time. To say this was a bad match is probably kind.

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 3 Hyde 2

A lovely lob from Seddon, a ridiculous own goal and a Hobson header from a well taken corner put Chester three up against a terrible Hyde side. They pulled one back through a very well taken freekick before Brown basically ended his season by being sent off for chucking a ball at someone’s head. Another […]

Chester FC 2 Tamworth 0

Chester FC moved up to 18th in the table and four points above the drop zone with a vital win against a practically relegated Tamworth side. An own goal and Danny Carlton’s first goal for the club were the difference between two sides who were both, frankly, terrible until the deadlock was broken. After Chester […]

MATCH BLOG – Chester FC 2 Southport 2

Chester FC and Southport both took a share of the spoils after an entertaining game at the Swansway. Chester went into a 2-0 lead thanks to a tap in from Hobson and a great individual effort from man-of-the-match Mahon before two goals from a Southport team – a soft header and a good flowing move […]

MATCH BLOG Chester FC 2 Barnet 1

Jamie Reed’s last minute winner gave Chester their second home win of the season and gave Steve Burr his first points in charge of Chester FC. A Lewis Turner fluke opened the deadlock in the first half when his cross from deep got a slight deflection and went in off the post. Chester defended well […]

MATCH BLOG Southport 0 Chester FC 0

Chester dropped two points away after they missed a tonne of chances while managing to contain a Southport team which looked fairly decent on the counter. The worst culprit was Jamie Reed who managed to blaze a shot over the bar and hit the top of the stand behind when through on goal with the […]
