Reports in the local press today suggest Chester City’s players are to be paid their outstanding wages shortly. The Liverpool Daily Post reports the following quotes from Morell Maison:
“The players were paid a week’s wages last week. There are moves afoot to pay a months wages this week, and another months wages the following week, which would bring them up to date.
“The plans are there. The ball started to roll last week, and hopefully the club can keep it continuing this week.
“Money came in last week, and there is some stuff we are doing this week coming to fruition, and that should lead us nicely into next week. So there are moves afoot.”
It might just be a conincidence, but the Blues have also announced the sale of tickets for Chester City’s Blue Square Premier Derby clash with borderline rivals, Wrexham. Could it be that the new “investments” coming into the club is actually the pre-match ticket sales expected from a bumper welsh following to this game?
Therefore, with Chester City supporters boycotting the blues, there’s a good chance Wrexham fans are actually financially keeping the Blues going by pumping their hard earned cash into the Deva Stadium club. Hmm. Thanks to all Wrexham fans for your continued support of the Blues!
