BLUES HELD AT TELFORD
Nearly 1,000 Chester fans made the trip to the New Bucks Head to see Chester draw 0-0 at AFC Telford United on Boxing Day. The Blues gave a debut to defender Alex Brown, one of four changes to the side beaten by Farsley in the FA Trophy, Kole Hall, Liam Edwards and Kevin Roberts also made the starting X1 with Iwan Murray, Joe Lynch and Adam Thomas starting on the bench.

It was a game of few chances with the home side having the better of those with harry Tyrer saving well to deny Brendon Daniels from his free kick. The Chester shot-stopper also denied substitute Nathan Blissett late on.

MATCH OFF
Tomorrow’s FA Trophy match at Farsley Celtic has been postponed due to a frozen pitch. It will now take place this Tuesday, kick-off 19.45hrs.
MANAGER OF THE MONTH
Calum McIntyre has been named National League North Manager of the Month for November. Chester won four and drew two of their six league games during the month, scoring 12 goals and keeping three clean sheets in the process.

A delighted Calum told the official club website: “It’s obviously nice to be recognised for the work during a period of time and I am very humbled to receive this award, but I think it would be much more appropriate to reflect on the achievements of the team during November and across the season so far.

“I am merely the individual when in truth I am being recognised for the performances of the team that I am honoured to work with day in day out. It is the performances of our group of players that put together such a fabulous run of form and it is important they are recognised as the impressive collective that they are.

“Equally, the team behind the team, Colin Woodthorpe, Mike Allcock, Luke Davies, Liam Stoneley and Tom King as well as the team of volunteers behind the scenes have more than played their part in the small recent success.

“Togetherness is everything for us at this club and any successes, awards or individual accolades that are won will be won and recognised together as a group.”

FRIDAY NIGHT FEVER
Chester pulled in their highest crowd of the season on a cold foggy Friday night as 2,268 saw the Blues overcome a dogged Blyth Spartans 1-0 at Deva Stadium. The only goal of the game came in the opening ten minutes as top scorer Kurt Willoughby beat the offside trap to latch onto a through ball from Charlie Caton and steer the ball past Alex Mitchell in the Spartans goal.

Blyth saw plenty of possession throughout the game but failed to create any clear cut chances to test home ‘keeper Harry Tyrer. It was Chester who missed the opportunities to double their lead as Willoughby saw a great chance saved just before half-time and Weeks saw an effort saved late on. The visitors were reduced to ten men as Jordan Hickey saw red following a late challenge as Weeks broke away down the left.
