City crash out of FA Trophy in latest low ebb

The last chance of a Cup run has well and truly deserted Chester City following their humiliating 1-0 defeat to Conference North side Fleetwood Town at the Deva Stadium.
Adam Warlow was the hero for the visitors, as the Fleetwood striker took advantage of a fumble from City keeper John Danby, to put the Lancashire side through to the next round, and leave Chester's season completely in tatters, and lose yet another source of income for the club in this wretched season.

Only 518 were in attendance at the Deva, with 110 from Fleetwood, meaning 408 Chester fans were watching tonight, a figure reminiscent of the 409 that attended the Moss Rose when Harry McNally was in charge against Bury, and worth remembering that Harry sadly passed away five years ago on Saturday 12th December - he would be absolutely fuming if he was here now witnessing what Chester fans are being put through.

Next up for City, is an away trip to Rushden & Diamonds next Saturday.
