March 10th could be a very significant day in the life of football in Chester.

The Exiles are organising calling of CFU members and supporters from an Exile member's office in Croydon, South London (15 minutes from Victoria or London Bridge). This will be from late afternoon into the early evening. We will be giving members the latest news from the High Court and asking if they are prepared to help CFU by offering ideas, recruiting their friends, family and colleagues and contributing to our coffers.

The calling we have already done has proved really successful and CFU members are pleased to hear from us.

So, if you are in the area - please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for further information. Full training, scripts and refreshments will be provided.

 
Planning for a Brighter Future
Written by City Fans United

Since Chester City were expelled from the Football Conference on Friday, there have been a number of rumours circulating about the future of football in Chester, specifically a number of misunderstandings about CFU’s work towards the reformation of the Club.

 

We understand the concern that fans and members have about the future of football in Chester, and share your desire to see football back in the City again.
 

However although the Club were thrown out of the League last Friday in accordance with football regulations, Chester City FC 2004 has until Friday 5 March to appeal against the original recommendation by the Board of the Football Conference to its member clubs to expel Chester City. This appeal is not against the vote of the Clubs taken last Friday.

Assuming there is no appeal or it is unsuccessful we will be making an application to join the football pyramid as a ‘reformed’ club, and this will be assessed by The FA. We are also continuing regular and active discussions with the Council over making an application for the lease of the Deva. As a critical part of both our application for the lease, and for a league place, we have been working closely with our advisors, Supporters Direct, to draw up a comprehensive business plan.

Although some of the process may not be as clear as fans – or we – would like, we would like to reassure everyone that despite rumours to the contrary, there is no rule stating that a reformed Chester City will have to begin at North West Counties League.

 

We are getting the best advice on all these issues from Supporters Direct, and will continue to keep members and fans alike informed of developments.

Today the member clubs of the Football Conference have voted to expel Chester City FC from the competition.

City Fans United are dismayed and saddened that this situation has been allowed to occur, however we have previously stated our belief that years of financial mismanagement meant that this decision was inevitable.
