The first meeting between the two sides is a game full of drama. After only two minutes Chester lose keeper Billy Stewart following an injury sustained in the pre-match warm-up. Centre half Mark Came takes over in goal. Despite this setback Chester dominate the game but are held back my keeper Mark Evans who pulls off a string of great saves.

Chester’s highest scoring victory over Scarborough and the Blues totally outplay the Seadogs with a clinical display of finishing.

With both clubs fighting for a place in the play-offs Chester come out on top of a tense encounter. Once again Andy Milner is on target with a fine individual goal but Chester are indebted to the improving Julian Alsford who has an outstanding game in the centre of defence. Scarborough’s best effort comes from future City player Steve Brodie. After 183 games, keeper Ian Ironside plays his final match in goal for Scarborough while David Currie also plays his last 90 minutes.

5) Scarborough 4 (Williams (2), Robinson, Atkin) Chester City 1 (Thomas) – Nationwide League Division Three – October 21st 1997 Att: 1,451
Scarborough’s first victory over Chester at the seventh attempt but it’s a poor performance from City who put up little resistance. Leading scorer Gareth Williams scores two of the Scarborough goals while Chester’s consolation comes from Rod Thomas who had been a target for the Seadogs at the start of the season. The third Scarborough goal is set up by Michael McElhatton who goes on to play eight times for Chester in 2001/02.

6) Chester City 1 (Rimmer) Scarborough 1 (Flitcroft og) – Nationwide League Division Three – May 2nd 1998 Att: 2,719
In the final game of the season Scarborough miss out on an automatic promotion place but secure a place in the play-offs. Stuart Rimmer scores his 135th and final goal in what turns out to be his last game in a City shirt. Rimmer’s goal comes with only three minutes remaining and cancels out Dave Flitcroft’s glancing header into his own net from Steve Brodie’s corner. Ian Snodin is sent off for Scarborough. Spencer Whelan and Ryan Dobson also play their last games for City.

7) Scarborough 2 (Marinkov, Tate) Chester City 4 (Thomas (2), Priest, Flitcroft) – Nationwide League Division Three – October 3rd 1998 Att: 1,832
A fine performance by City capped by four superb goals but sloppy defending gifts Scarborough two goals they hardly deserve. Rod Thomas scores two of the City goals in what proves to be his final game before joining Brighton. Luke Beckett appears as a substitute, after returning from injury, and comes within inches of converting an Alex Smith cross. Scarborough’s second goal is scored by Chris Tate who goes on to have two separate loan spells with Chester from Leyton Orient.

8) Chester City 1 (Beckett) Scarborough 3 (Tate (2), Russell) – Nationwide League Division Three – March 9th 1999 Att: 1,954
