Vaughan targets Welsh Premier as eviction looms

It's been a quiet week as far as the Vaughan family are concerned, and so it was not a surprise when yesterday it was revealed that they were actually attempting to get access in to the Welsh Premier League, after being effectively kicked out of English football.

The Welsh League is pretty much a parting shot of Vaughan's in his latest desperate attempt to keep hold of the club name, which will surely disappear from the radar completely on Wednesday at the High Court, as the HMRC look to wind the club up, something which now seems all the more likely following the Conference's decision to remove the club from its competition.

An eviction notice will surely follow from Cheshire West & Chester Council, as they seek to remove the lease from the Vaughan family, and hopefully prepare it for the CFU, who have made significant strides into the set up of a continuation of the current club, ruined by Stephen Vaughan.

ll eyes will be on the Council, as its their taxpayers who they have to think about, and having not received the best part of a year's rent from the club, the onus will be on them to assign the lease to an organisation committed to paying their way.

Vaughan's latest attempt to get Chester City FC 2004 Ltd into a League should ensure he gets life membership into Ripley's Believe It Or Not! A sad act of desperation from a man who knows the end game is taking place.

As far as City Fans United are concerned there has been massive progress recently, with the membership now over 1000 (combined figures of CFU & Junior Blues), and the work going on behind the scenes from a "bunch of idiots" is as professional as you can get, and who are working their nuts off to try and make sure that the City of Chester has a football team to support in English football come August, and this week could be the defining week as far as that ambition is concerned.

So, another busy week is expected, having had the calm before the storm over the weekend, with the waters only stirred up by the latest Welsh football attempt by Vaughan.

Tune in for the next exciting episode of Devastation Street (sorry Tom, couldn't resist!) later this week!

  1. Hi there,

    As a football fan, I am really sorry to hear that your club Chester City have folded, although I imagine it has been on the cards for a while. My own club, Crystal Palace are in dire straights at the moment, so I have an idea of what you are going through. I think it is hard to stomach when it's largely due to mis-management & as a fan you can do little about it. I also imagine that although it may have been on the cards it is not until it finally happens that it truly sinks in. With the way football is run in this country a few more other clubs may well go the way of Chester in the near future. What sickens me is the unfair/uneven way that money is distributed through the league & non-league clubs - the big clubs rake in bundles but are still massively in debt, and the money that is filtered down to the smaller clubs with relatively minor debts in comparison is truly pathetic.
    May Chester rise again like a 'phoenix from the ashes' under a new name such as AFC Chester. Good luck & I am again sorry about the demise of your club. It is a sad state of affairs. All the best. Mark
