YOUTH TEAM MARCH ON

Congratulations to the Youth Team who won 9-1 away at Rugby Borough today to reach the quarter-final of the National League Alliance League Cup.
WARING UPDATE
It appears that the cheekbone injury suffered by George Waring a Guiseley is worse that first thought and the striker could now be sidelined for up to eight weeks.

BLUES DUMPED OUT OF TROPHY

Chester were beaten 3-0 at Royston Town in the second round of the FA Trophy on Saturday. The Crows scored three headed goals through Matt Bateman twice, and Josh Castiglione after the break against a Blues side that offered nothing during the second period. The first half saw Chester spurn two great chances to open the scoring as Anthony Dudley saw an effort from six yards saved and James Jones saw a near post header from a corner go just wide. Other than that Chester, who were missing Akwasi Asante and George Waring up front, created nothing of note on an extremely disappointing afternoon.

BLOW FOR WARING

Forward George Waring has sustained a double fracture of the cheekbone during Saturday’s win at Guiseley. Chester-born Waring will miss Saturday’s FA Trophy match at Royston Town but hopes to resume playing, while wearing a protective mask, soon after.

BATTLING BLUES COMPLETE A GUISELEY DOUBLE
A goal by defender James Jones was enough to bring Chester a hard earned three points to complete the double over Guiseley on Saturday. The Blues named an unchanged side from the one that comprehensively beat Southport on Wednesday, and scored the only goal of the game on 11 minutes as Jones headed in at the far post from a Matty Waters corner.

MANAGER’S SIGN NEW CONTRACTS

Joint manager’s Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley have extended their contracts at Chester. The duo have signed new two and a half year deals that will take them to the end of the 2021/22 season.

A statement from CFU vice chairman Andrew Morris said: “The Board of City Fans United are delighted to secure the contract extension of Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson until May 2022.”

“Successful football Clubs are built through sustained and continued improvement on and off the pitch and the work that these managers have done over the last 18 months to develop a footballing infrastructure, which aligned to our Club values, has been remarkable given where the Club were when they joined.”

“The board look forward to working with the managers for the duration of the contract and have the upmost confidence that the club will continue to progress under their stewardship.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Chester started the New Year in emphatic style completing the double over Southport. The Blues put Saturday’s disappointing home defeat to Curzon Ashton behind them as they romped to a 4-0 victory over the Sandgrounders.

Defender Simon Grand opened the scoring on 37 minutes to give the Blues a deserved lead at the interval. Two more goals from Akwasi Asante and one from Anthony Dudley after the break equalled Chester’s biggest league win of the season.

Joint manager Bernard Morley said: “Today was about winning and not what personnel were playing, what formation, what plan we were going to use, it was just about winning at all costs and that is what we told the lads.”

“I thought there was a bit of anxiety in the first half but we got them in at half time 1-0 up with a clean sheet and told them that we needed to apply ourselves better than what we did against Curzon in the second half which they obviously did and came away with a magnificent result.”


“I don’t think Southport have sat behind the ball, I think they’ve come and had a go and that is the reason the game was end to end and the quality shone through in the end.”
