Chester City - The Future

Welcome to my Chester City FC blog, a blog that I'll be looking to update each day throughout the new season.

Right now, no-one knows exactly what the future holds, even if we will actually be in a position to play football in any league, never mind the Blue Square Premier League.

This is down to the Football Association's refusal to give the club a licence to be affiliated to the organisation. Already Chester City have had to cancel their pre-season friendlies to date, with the next major friendly, against Premier league new boys Burnley, next Saturday, already under threat of cancellation.

Today, we have seen the Managing Director of the Club, Bob Gray, criticise those who frequent and give their opinions on DevaChat, the Chester fans main source of letting off some steam, and putting up arguments & topics for debate.

Gray, said that the fans had their chance to take over the club when it was in Administration, however, at this stage, any winning bid would have had to be at the value of £4.3m due to Stephen Vaughan's debentures.

Tomorrow, Monday 27th, sees the Administrators in Court, with the HMRC, to try to remove a "stumbling block" in the way of FA ratification of the new company that owns Chester City FC, named CCFC 2004 Limited, and led (on paper) by Stephen Vaughan Junior, the ex-Chairman and owner's Son.

Hopefully we will find out that there has been some progress at this point tomorrow, and that Chester fans can look to following their team on Saturday 8th August, at Grays Athletic.

More can be found about the Blues on my website, Banksy's World.
