Time for the Battle to begin…Let's Play Our Part!

So, here we are with 4 games remaining, and Chester FC top of the League having amassed 90 points in a season that has seen the Blues in their maiden season, win 27 league games, and lose on 4 of the 40 played so far.


The team have put 99 goals past their opposition in those 40 games so far, and are hopefully going to make it past the 100 mark on Saturday at Radcliffe, as we begin the first of four crucial games this season.


We are, as they say, at the business end of the campaign, and having guaranteed a play off place in that first season – an achievement which should not go un-noticed for a club rebuilt from scratch in the space of 12 weeks, are within touching distance of lifting a Championship title and promotion at the first time of asking.


We have our challengers of course, in Skelmersdale, and just like in 2004, when we faced a strong challenge from Hereford United for the Conference title, we are in the same position again, but are also still in pole position thanks to that 3 point lead and a healthier goal difference at present.


It’s time though for everyone to unite and back the Blues to success. It can be done.


We really need all supporters and followers of Chester FC to give the lads all the encouragement that we can possibly give them, singing their names, getting behind them from the very first minute to the last, regardless of age, all members of the playing squad can be affected by negativity towards them, and at a time when the opposite is needed, it’s THE FANS who need to be right behind each and every one of them as we enter the final 2 weeks of the season.


There have been some great victories this season, our greatest will hopefully still be awaiting us, and we can all celebrate together, fans, players, management team, in fact everyone who has Blue running through their veins.


There will always be differing opinions in football – that’s the game we know and love, and we came so so close to losing it forever in 2010, but we are here, breathing new life from the phoenix that is Chester FC.


Radcliffe Borough, AFC Fylde, Bamber Bridge, and Garforth Town – that’s it. Four games where we can make the difference and sing the lads to victory.


If you have a flag, bring it. If you have drum, bring it. If you love to sing, then sing loud and proud.


To the Players of Chester FC: You can do it, and we’ll be behind you every step of the way, singing you to victory. Within the next four games, you can become heroes.


To the Management Team of Chester FC: We’re behind you too, we may always have our own starting line ups in our mind, but one thing is a certainty, we will back anyone in a blue & white shirt once they are over that white line.


To the Fans: Let’s do this together, as one, show our support and success can be ours. The rewards will be amazing. Our team need us now more than ever.


Chester Forever
