West Park Colts 0 Chester
With games coming thick and
fast and the young blues undeafeated a great display
was produced by the Blues against a well organised
and run team. Mark Brennan started the ball rolling
with the first of his six goals which earned him another
man of the match award and he would have slotted a
couple more had it not been for the outstanding keeper
in the colts goal.
Further goals soon followed from Mike Hayden, Will Tane, George Jones and
Canice Omahony as the Blues produced a 10-0 win. With two league games
left the team has had a tremendous run and are looking forward to the remaining
games starting this Thursday 8th May at Clifton Drive kick-off 18.15hrs
and all a very welcome. Chester City Juniors are also very well represented
in the Duke of Westminster cup finals this year at the Deva Stadium Sunday

Cholmondley 0 Chester City
Chester started brightley and
soon opened the scoring through Mark Brennan who capitalised
on some sloppy marking and the blues were soon into
their stride. Both teams strugled to find a pass as
the long grass hampered pass and move play and chester
soon changed tactics and passed the ball long with
great effect as Will Tane soon made it 2-0.
Further goals followed from George Jones and John Cheers as the blues killed
of the game. In the second half with a terrential down pour making making
it very difficult chester found the net again from Craig Stewert who then
followed it up with his second soon after. As chester pushed Cholmondley
would have scored a deserved goal but for a superb save from Nick Underwood,
and with time running out Canice Omahony netted again for a 7-0 win.

Sunday 9 March
Tattenhall 1 Chester City 5
In windy conditions the home
side won the toss and elected to go with the wind in
the first half and in an end to end game both centre
half’s stood strong with very few open chances
After some great play from David McCully, Chris Newman scored his second
goal in two games from a neat close range finish. Minutes later he added
his second beating three defenders and slamming a low left foot drive into
the bottom corner and and with minutes to go before half time the non stop
running of Craig Stewart produced a third goal when he knocked the ball
in from close range. With the wind behind them in the second half and five
changes made the Blues were now playing some attractive football being
denied on many occasions by the superb Tattenhall keeper and man of the
match for Chester Mark Brennan instrumental in most attacks.
John Cheers soon found his
form and knocked in number 4 after Tattenhall had
pulled one back and Luke Edwards capped a brilliant

Sunday 2 March 2003
Chester City 10 Saughall 0
From start to finish
the Blues dominated this game being denied on countless
occasions by Jack Carter in the Saughall goal who by
far was man of the match. The Blues were caught on
many occasions off side by a well organised defence
marshaled by Lee Calvert but as early as the third
minute Craig Stewart opened the scoring with a low
driven shot. Goals soon followed from Canice Omahony
and George Jones and in the second period with the
home teams fitness showing goals from Mike Hayden and
David Mcully made it 6-0. Chris Newman’s barren
spell of goals ended with a well taken low drive and
further goals from Stewart and Mcully made it 10-0
at the final whistle.

7 AFC Waverton 0 - Duke of Westminster Cup
Again in windy conditions club captain Danny
Boardman chose to go with the wind and within two minutes the Blues
were in front with Craig Stewert too quick for his marker. Will Tane
and Kennedy Tattler Ashes were in great form in midfield and goals
two and three soon followed from George Jones and a delightful chip
over the keeper from David McCully.
In the second period Waverton picked up the wind and forced Chester back
and were unlucky on a number of occasions as the ball went wide of the
post. With the Waverton keeper in tremendous form Chester could not turn
all there possession into goals but with ten minutes to go Canice O’Mahony
scored with a great volley from six yards. Chester made five substitutions
as time ran out and a further three goals followed from Craig Stewert,
David McCully and John Cheers to round off a fine team performance and
a great game against two well run and organised clubs.
The under 13s with coaches Phil Lloyd, Craig
Whitehead and CCFC co-ordiantor Mark Newman.
Sunday 26 January 2003
Chester City 1 Wrexham 0
Played at home against a very strong Wrexham team.
the Blues started brightly with Luke Edwards and Will Tane getting the
measure of their midfield opponents, but the Blues were lucky to survive
without conceding in the first period due to some sloppy defending. in
the second period Chester started strongly and dominated to be rewarded
with a goal by centre forward Mark Brennan which turned the game, Craig
Stewart and David McCully were a continual thorn in the side of the Wrexham
defence, creating many opportunities in the third period. in the dying
minutes Wrexham pressed for an equaliser, only to be denied by the post
and Chester ran out worthy winners.
Sunday 19 January 2003
Chester City 5 Cholmondley 0
A fine home win against Cholmondley with
a 20 yard screamer from Chris Newman to get them going followed by George

Sunday 8 December 2002
Chester City 8 Westminster Park 0
The U13s also remain unbeaten a very strong
team under the guidance of Phil Lloyd, Craig Whitehead and myself winning
this week 8-0 against the large local club Westminster Park. Craig Stewert
at right wing none stop runner and a great crosser of the ball, Luke Edwards
at centre mid a real eye catcher in the mould of Paul Gascoine, Jack Delgado
son of the excellent ex-chester player Bob Delgado in great form at left
full, and the David Beckham of the team Chris Newman with his stunning
left foot crosses into the box accounting for the numerous goals scored
so far in this season.
