‘Talk to us’ ask City fans

The stories that were broken by the local press earlier this week that Stephen Vaughan has been in advanced negotiations to sell Chester City FC to a business consortium will come as a source of relief for all City fans this festive period.

It is with interest that City Fans United see that Mr Vaughan has now set a sale price for the Club, and is allowing outside parties access to the books to perform due diligence upon the accounts of the current company. This costly statement of intent on behalf of this new consortium gives us hope that the Club may now be sold to a committed and genuine third party, something the Managing Director of CCFC worryingly admitted this week “...must happen soon”.

As the potential buyers will note, attendances and income streams for the Club have dropped alarmingly in recent times. This is well documented, and is due to any number of off and on the field problems at the Club over a number of years. It would be clearly obvious to any serious consortium that they would need the supporters behind them to help resurrect the Club, to support the players, attend games and invest in new income streams the Club would hopefully wish to explore.

City Fans United are committed to the long term survival and development of community driven, professional football in our City. We would be delighted to speak to Steve Harvey, or any other potential purchaser of Chester City FC, as soon as possible. We would make ourselves available to meet anywhere, at any time. Any potential investor could be assured at all times of our professionalism. Strictest confidentiality would also be assured at all times. We are more than prepared to work until we drop to secure the future of this football club, and would happily do this in co-operation with any genuine purchaser who has the Club and the City at heart.
