Chief executive of the Community Trust Jim Green, said: “It has been a long time coming but we are genuinely excited about these plans and look forward to sharing them with supporters and the wider community.

BLUES HELD BY LEAMINGTON

Chester missed the opportunity to close the gap on their play-off rivals when they were pegged back by ten-man Leamington on Saturday. Striker Akwasi Asante made a return to the starting X1 though looked short of match fitness and was replaced midway through the second period.

After an uneventful first half midfielder Ben McKenna opened the scoring for Chester two minutes into the second period following good build up play by Matty Waters and Anthony Dudley. The Brakes were reduced ten men in the 80th minute with Jordan Murphy receiving a second yellow card. Despite this setback the visitors were on level terms three minutes later with Ahmed Obeng shooting past Grant Shenton from the edge of the area.

Chester remain in ninth place and are now five points off the play-off’s. They are next in action on Saturday when they travel to Darlington, kick-off 15.00hrs.

BURTON SEES RED

Chester were beaten 4-0 at Altrincham on Saturday, conceding all four goals in the second half after captain Scott Burton was sent-off following two yellow cards in the 50th minute.

Altrincham opened the scoring through Joe Piggott 60 seconds later and there was to be only one winner from then on. Two further goals from Josh Hancock and a last minute John Johnston strike completed the scoring. Chester had the better of the possession in the first half though clear-cut chances were few and far between against their play-off rivals.

Joint manager Bernard Morley said: “It took us a while to get into the game but after that we had good chances and were the better side. We got in at half time and it was the perfect game plan but once Scott was sent off it was doom and gloom after that.”

“Altrincham are a very good possession side and it is hard enough against them with 11 men. They will pass it around for 45 minutes, tire you out, suck you in and hit you on the counter like they did.”

“I’ve never known a side who concedes goals they we do – ultimately if that is mine and Johnno’s fault it is what it is but it is something we’ve been working on in training. We never seem to concede those goals in training but on a match day whenever we concede a goal we just seem to crumble and it is something we are trying our best to put right.”
