CHAIRMAN STEPS DOWN

David Harrington-Wright has today stepped down from his role as football club chairman, and also from the board of City Fans United. He has agreed to support the board through the coming period of transition.

The former chairman said; “I have been truly honoured to be the Chairman and a board member of my beloved Chester FC, and it’s fair to say the almost three years on the board have been a roller coaster!

I would like to think I leave the club in a better position than when I joined - but it’s not been solely down to me. The hard work of all my fellow board members and many many volunteers is something I am immensely proud of, and I thank each and everyone of them.

A great thanks from me to all our sponsors as well who have stood by us in difficult times, and also to Stuart Murphy without whom we may not have seen as much quality football in the past year as we have!

Finally a great thanks to all the fans - the support I have received from the majority especially over the past year with the issues I had away from the club has been humbling.

I wish Chester the best going Forward whenever Football recommences, as first and foremost I have always been a blue!’’

Vice chairman Andrew Morris has agreed to step up to the role, initially until the next AGM which is due in October. Andrew said: “It is an honour to take up this role on behalf of the Board and the wider CFU membership and I look forward to continuing to work with David during his handover period and alongside my fellow Board Members to continue the good work and momentum this Club has built even during this difficult period, Under David Harrington-Wright’s stewardship this Club has progressed significantly on and off the field and I speak on behalf of all my fellow Board members when I say he will be missed.”

EASTER DRAW

The club have decided to postpone the Easter Raffle until further notice. Raffle books were sent out to CFU members a couple of weeks ago but with difficulties in selling, collecting money, and delivering prizes during the current climate, a decision has been made to postpone the draw for another date in the future. Tickets can still be sold though and the stubs posted back to the club along with a cheque made payable to Chester City Supporters’ Society Limited. Although the club office is not open, mail is still being collected on a regular basis.
COMMUNITY TRUST REACHING OUT
The football club, in conjunction with the Chester FC Community Trust, has put together a support package for the local community during the coronavirus outbreak. The plan is to connect with supporters, volunteers and vulnerable residents.

The Club and the Community Trust have been contacting older CFU members as well as volunteers and season ticket holders in this time of social isolation. The initiative is open to anyone in the local Chester area in need of help and support and is NOT just aimed at Chester supporters.

If you or someone you know would like to register, please email community@chesterfc.com or telephone 07512 355396.

The club would also welcome help from supporters who could volunteer some home time each week to help. If you feel you would lend your support please contact the Community Trust Chief Executive jim.green@chesterfc.com
