Chester City FC (2004) Ltd wound up - Further Statement
Written by City Fans United

Today, 125 years of history of Chester City Football Club was ended at the High Court, and this was a sad culmination in a period of turbulence that has seen the club slip out of the Football League for a second time, fail to pay its employees, and failing to fulfil fixtures in the Football Conference, resulting in an embarrassing expulsion from their competition.

 

The decision to liquidate the club now allows a new era of football in Chester to commence, an era in which we feel will be a major boost to the community of Chester, and an era that all supporters can be proud of as it is they who will form the life of the reformed club.

Upon news of the liquidation, City Fans United has today submitted an application to The Football Association to reform the club, and we will be working extremely closely with Supporters Direct, who will help guide us through the process of reformation.

We will also be liaising with the Cheshire West & Chester Council, who have been very supportive of our plans to deliver an open, honest football club, properly run by the fans and which encapsulates the whole community.

Despite this being a sad end to the last 125 years, City Fans United are now prepared for the new era, and encourage anyone not currently a member of CFU, to sign up via www.cityfansunited.com and be part of the football club that intends to rise from the ashes of its predecessor.

We will continue to keep everyone informed as we move along the process through our usual channels of communication, including our website.
