Blues fans have received various messages of support from followers of other club’s.

Messages of support have been posted on all manner of internet messageboards.  Here Blues Mad gathers some of the best.


“GOOD LUCK TO CHESTER!! A small club like us. Life’s tough for us all, and they have fans just like us. As I say GOOD LUCK CHESTER!”

“No footy club or its supporters deserve to go through what you/us have been through in recent years. I worked in Chester for years and know a lot of people who support you – I even went to Bumpers Lane/Macc a few times to watch Chester games with them – and I have a lot of time & respect for Chester fans as a result. Zero point in having local rivalries if we never play each other so I have everything crossed that you pull through this mess.”

“Listen, first let me say that over the years I have not been a fan of Chester in the past when I was young and stupid, I have both been chased by your fans for a fight and have done the same to your lads. I have also relished your many defeats as I am sure your lads have relished ours. I have been to Sealand Road and Bumpers Lane and have enjoyed the banter and the intimidation. But let me tell you this myself and most Wrexham fans think that what’s happening to you is a disgrace. We have been through this ourselves and know what its like. I can only hope that things work out for you because as first and formost we are all football fans. GOOD LUCK and I hope to see you a little bit later on in the season at Bumpers Lane.”

“Best of luck today and whatever happens hopefully you can look forward to a Vaughan free future at the club. The FA must take some responsibility for all of this because their ‘fit and proper persons act’ is a complete joke – letting Vaughan buy the club back from administration is shameful. The same ‘act’ allowed that fat bastard Guttttterman buy our club after he had wrecked yours – which has lead all the problems since.  It’s always the smaller clubs and the true fans that get screwed and it’s about time the authororities realised this. Sad thing is though they won’t and clubs like ours will continue to get screwed by crooks.”

Tranmere Rovers

“I come in peace and would just like to echo the sentiments of the Wrexham fans who wish you all the best in your struggles. I know it’s been a while since our paths crossed, and it will probably be while before they do again, but I hope one day it will happen. I used to enjoy my trips to Sealand Road.”

“Good luck for tomorrow, the majority of Tranmere fans wish you well. Give Vaughan a slap from me.”

Northwich Victoria

“Just wanted to wish you guys luck on Thursday and say that all at the Vics (having been through similar ourselves) are hoping you get the result you want!”

“Would be very sad if the city where I was born lost its footie club.  I know we`ve got our own problems but I just wondered what we could do. One free-of-charge` idea, might be – as fellow council tax payers – to write to `Cheshire West & Chester` to request that the new, supposedly-streamlined Unitary Authority might help in some way, especially if it were to come to the founding of a new club.”

Stafford Rangers

“Good luck from all at Stafford Rangers. Can’t say a lot more really, we were almost doomed this time last year so you certainly have some empathy from us. Believe me, with the passion shown on this forum you will survive in some way, shape or form.”

Nottingham Forest

“Just want to wish you the best of luck for today. Must be squeaky bum time for you all today.”

Brighton & Hove Albion

“All Brighton fans are rooting for your club, we have been though this there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Every seagull fan is really hoping you survive. All the very best. KEEP FIGHTING FOR YOUR CLUB.”


“Best wishes from Whyteleafe.  Sorry to hear of your troubles. I will always have a soft spot for Chester and fond memories of our one and only time in the first round of the cup when we drew with you at home and lost 3-1 at the Deva in the replay. Hope everything works out for you. “


“It’s such a fuckin shame what’s happened there, as always it’s the supporters who suffer most.”

“I go to college in Chester and a couple of the lads f****** hate this Vaughan, he seems to have killed their football club. Good on them for what they are doing, they are great fans to be honest, the lads in college follow them everywhere home and away.”

“They on minus four points, can barely put a senior side out and have effectively been run into the ground. They’ve done protests in the city centre and before games but it got fuck all publicity.  That’s changed now because they protested on the pitch while the game was still going and they were winning. If that doesn’t show their level of hatred for a fella who has all but killed off their football club I don’t know what does. Fair play to them I say, sometimes things off the pitch are more important than what’s going on on the field.”

stalybridge-celtic-fcChester City’s second string overcame a strong Stalybridge Celtic side 2-1 to win through to the next round of the Cheshire Senior Cup at the Bower Fold tonight.

A team mainly made up of reserves opened brightly with young prospect Lloyd Ellams taking the lead for City wih just seconds on the clock.

Former Chester City star Joe O’Neill equalised for the hosts midway through the first half, however Chester regained the lead through Connell Rawlinson twelve minutes into the second half.  Chester should have extended their lead with six minutes remaining when Joe Freeman was unfortunate to see his shot ricochet off the woodwork and back into play.

The Blues will now play host to famous FA Cup victors, Northwich Victoria at the Deva Stadium.  The game is scheduled to be played during the week beginning 15th December 2009.
