Junior Blues LogoThe Junior Blues is a part of the City Fans United supporters group, for Chester fans under the age of 16.

Its first members were registered some 5 months ago, and the membership has now risen to almost 150.The Organisation relies mainly on Sponsorship and Fund Raising activities. The Membership Fee alone is insufficient. It boasts its own committee which is a sub-committee of the CFU, consisting of five people including Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Fund Raising Officer.

The Junior Blues has its own bank account to ensure that its funds are kept separate from all CFU money. A number of activities have been organised.

The first event was a trip to the National Football Museum in Preston. A coach load of children made the trip, which turned out to be a great day out, and was covered by the Chester Chronicle.

A painting competition is currently under way, with details sent out to all parents of The Junior Blues. A sponsored walk is being planned for the near future, with half of the sponsorship money going to the CFU.

At the age of 16, the Junior Blue would automatically be registered for the adult organisation, if it was so wished. Membership is only £5 and the benefits gained for this nominal sum are well worth it.

Originally there was an extensive induction package that would be received on joining, including Membership Card/Wallet, Scarf, T Shirt, Junior Blues Pen, Badge and at Christmas all members received a Christmas Card. This package was for a limited period only, but an excellent induction package still applies today.

On Joining the applicant will receive a Membership Card/ Wallet with a City Fans United Junior Blue T Shirt, which is still value for money.

We must build for the future for our Football Club, and these children have a big part to play. These youngsters have been neglected in the past for far too long, but the CFU are determined that this will not happen again. We’re building a future for Chester FC together.

Thursday, 25 March 2010 00:00

After a week of voting, the time has finally arrived to announce the new name for the reformed club aiming to appear at the Deva Stadium this August...

In 1989 on this day, Graham Abel scored a stunning goal for Chester City against the mighty Wolves at Sealand Road, whilst on this day in the year 2000, Chester destroyed Mansfield Town 5-0 at the Deva Stadium.


Today though in 2010, another memory is etched into the lives of Blues fans - the day the club went back to its roots.


A week ago, fans were invited to vote on four options to come up with a name for the reformation of the club, with the four choices being Chester Football Club, City of Chester FC, Chester Rovers FC, and finally FC Chester. City Fans United opened up the voting to the whole community of Chester fans, in the area, the UK, and the rest of the world too - in fact fans in no less than 20 countries took part in the unique vote, with numbers voting totalling well over a thousand.
