Blues defeated at Tamworth but given Payment Extension

The Football Conference have given Chester City an extension to the deadline of Monday 16th November, to pay off their footballing creditors, which include Wrexham, Vauxhall Motors, and the PFA.

The club has now been given a further 2 weeks to find the cash, and that takes it to the 30th November, which is after the date that the Company Director ban on Stephen Vaughan kicks in.

This now means that Chester will have 2 games at home before the 30th November, which could raise the money from the home game takings.

All this comes after the Blues slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Tamworth.

Chester completed their third away game in a row with a second successive defeat, this time at Tamworth, following their defeat at York on Tuesday night.

Hopes were high of a Blues win knowing that Tamworth had lost their last 6 games, but the tables were turned, and the hosts took the lead thanks to a goal from Neil Mackenzie, which was levelled by Mark Beesley early into the second half.

City fell behind again though, to a goal from Simon Brown, signed yesterday, and the game was effectively over when Nick Wright finished the Blues off with a goal 15 minutes from time.

It leaves City on minus 4 points, and 19 points from safety in the Blue Square Premier League having now played 20 games.
