Rumours of player discontent at the Deva Stadium have circulated following Chester City’s exit from the FA Trophy at the hands of Blue Square North side, Fleetwood Town.

According to a report in today’s non-league paper, Chester City’s players are planning a staged walk out from training in midweek following non payment (again!) of their latest monthly pay packets.  They will be taking advice from the Professional Footballers Association regarding their suggested actions.

An unnamed player told the non-league paper, “A number of us met Bob Gray, the managing direction, after the game against Fleetwood Town and were told wages due at the end of November will be paid on Friday.  This situation isn’t a one-off, it is happening regularly. 

“We’ve told Mr Gray we wouldn’t turn in for training this week, and if monies weren’t forthcoming as promised, we would consider not playing against Rushden next weekend.  We will take advice from the PFA, but the situation appears to be getting worse.  The lads are fed up.”
