City's fate to be decided on Thursday

The future of Chester City Football Club will be decided on Thursday - the same day as the scheduled Legends Night event that over 20 ex-City players are due to attend City Fans United's first social evening.
Chester were due to hear their fate last night after the Football Conference and Football League met in Birmingham, but no decision was arrived at, other than to delay a decision until Thursday, which in turn allows City to take to the pitch against Cambridge United on Tuesday night.
The Football Conference issued the following statement:

The Football Conference confirm that positive discussions have continued today between themselves, the Football League and Chester City FC concerning the Club’s continued membership and participation in the Blue Square Premier.

We are able to report that the Football League is playing an active role in endeavours to ensure the Club is able to meet its financial commitments regarding their legal undertaking to settle with creditors which formed part of their requirement for membership in 2009/10, and which also incorporates payment to creditors which the Club has with the Football Conference.

To enable the Football League to provide maximum assistance in drawing matters to a satisfactory conclusion, Tuesday evening’s match (1st December) between Cambridge United and Chester City will proceed as scheduled.

The Football Conference will then convene an emergency Board meeting on Thursday 3rd December to receive a report from the joint deliberations between all parties, before discussing what further action may be necessary in light of the information provided, Following that meeting the Football Conference will issue a further statement.

So, it's onto Thursday then, and the big announcement!
