HELLO ALBERT, HELLO SPION KOP!

HELLO ALBERT “The stimulating and mildy amusing fanzine”

It is claimed by those with memories which stretch so far back, that Sealand Road was one of the first League grounds to have a public address system.

From as early as 1931 when Chester entered the League the announcer would greet supporters saying: “Hello Spion Kop! Hello Albert”. He was apparently addressing a long-standing supporter in the crowd.

The fanzine title Hello Albert thus epitomises attempts at communication between Chester supporters.
