“BOARDROOM BRIEFING ” – Interview with City chairman Steve Vaughan

Stephen Vaughan is in no doubt about which the direction Chester City are heading in. Despite being disappointed with Chester’s home form the City chairman hopes his team can get amongst the big boys this season. “It’s a good start but we are disappointed that we didn’t get the three points against Scarborough. The main thing is that we are still unbeaten and the lads havenít conceded but after going to Barnet and getting three points, I was disappointed with the Scarborough result.”

Vaughen continued: “Teams are all coming to the Deva Stadium and putting five men at the back and they’re making it hard for the lads. We were disappointed to only get a point when really we could have gone top of the Conference last Monday. Everything looks good at the moment. We’ll just have to keep going, just have to keep plugging away and take it week by week.”

“I think we need another striker, we need someone who can put some goals in. We’ve got four of the most established strikers in the conference league, but Iíve spoken to Mark Wright and he thinks he still needs strength and if that is what it takes to get us out of this league, that’s what we'll do.”

Changes on the field of play have been matched with many off it. Not only has the Deva Stadium office block received a fresh lick off paint, but a new management structure is also being put together. “As you know, we’ve done a complete refurbishment of the premises and we still havenít finished with the interior. But the main thing is we’re clearing the debt and the club is probably in the best shape its been in for a number of years. Off the field everything looks ok, on the field it looks promising. If we can all pull together, hopefully we’ll be challenging this year.”
