They say a month in politics is a long time, well a month at Chester Football Club is a lifetime!

It is just four weeks ago that the financial plight of our football club became public knowledge but the reaction of the fans, the city and the footballing community as a whole has been absolutely fantastic. In less than three weeks we raised the incredible sum of £75,000 through raffles, auctions, donations, an upsurge in CFU members and of course, the fantastic All Stars football match last Thursday which also featured Sam and Ian Pemberton, who had bid £2,000 for the privilege to be involved. Special thanks goes out to Jeff Banks who was the lynchpin in organising this match with the invaluable support of Colin Murray and Michael Owen. There are still many items of memorabilia from this match that will be made available for fans to bid on over the coming weeks, so keep a look out.

We also had that memorable night when our Youth Academy side triumphed against Gateshead in the National League Under 19 Alliance Cup in front of 1,065 supporters who had raised over £12,000 that night. How special must it have felt for Cain Noble to celebrate his winning goal in front of a packed East Stand, a memory to treasure. But we cannot stop now, we must continue with our fundraising efforts to guarantee the certainty of our future.

Fundraising Update - Wrexham AFC Collection
Written by Mike Day   
Thursday, 22 February 2018 13:07

Just four weeks ago, it was announced at the City Fans United meeting, that Chester FC needed to raise a figure of £50,000 to ensure the club could survive in the immediate term.

We have therefore been delighted at the response from Chester fans and the wider football family which has clearly come together to support the Blues in the bid for survival.

Last Thursday, we announced that we had surpassed the initial £50,000 target and now we could look to the medium term goal of ensuring survival beyond the end of the season.

Two weeks ago we were kindly contacted by officials at fellow fan owned club Wrexham AFC, who understood our position, and whilst we share a great rivalry with each other, offered us the opportunity of fundraising via donation buckets at their game against Aldershot. That kind offer of help was gratefully accepted.

This Saturday, a group of Chester fans will make the short trip up the A483 to fundraise for the Blues. Hopefully we have already covered the reasons behind why we must not stop fundraising having met the initial £50,000 target, and we would like to thank in advance any donations made - no matter how great or small - by Wrexham fans and indeed Aldershot fans at the game on Saturday, and also thank Wrexham AFC for making the offer.

We would like to thank those Blues fans giving up their time on Saturday to help raise funds for Chester FC.
