Jarman and Dave Hankin, who were both placed on
the transfer list have left Chester.

Chester and has joined AFC Fylde for a nominal fee.

goals in 40+10 appearances. He’s joined North
Ferriby United a move that will involve less travelling

THE AWARDS KEEP COMING!
Just days after picking
up the Non-League paper Team of the Year award,
Chester have won another one as manager Neil Young
and members of staff were presented with the BBC
Radio5 606’s Non Leage Team of the Year award,
at the Big Day Out event at the Liverpool Echo Arena
on Saturday night. The award was presented by BBC
Non League Show’s Caroline Barker in front
of an audience of 5,000.
Manager Neil Young told the Chester Leader: “It
was a bit scary stepping up to receive the award
in front of so many people and with the event also
being aired live on radio. But it was nice to pick
up yet another award, particularly in front of Wrexham
fan and BBC football pundit, Robbie Savage, who
was trying to give me some stick!”
“But it was great to see Chester winning the
BBC Radio Five Live Team award on the back of our
Non League Paper Team of the Year Award ceremony
at Fulham FC recently. The awards underline how
much our success has been appreciated and I am delighted
that Chester have received so much deserved exposure
by the media.”
Clips from the end of season
awards ceremony can be viewed here
for the next five days (Chester feature from about
50 minutes onwards).
