COMMUNITY | Schools sign up to parade for Chester FC clash with Daggers

Chester schools will be getting behind the Blues when Chester FC face Dagenham & Redbridge live on BT Sport next month.

Chester FC Community Trust has invited local schools to take part in a half-time parade during the National League clash on Saturday, November 25th (12.15pm KO).

Lache Primary School, St Oswald’s Primary School, Delamere Academy, Cherry Grove Primary School, St Martin’s Academy, Dodleston Primary School and Chester Blue Coat Primary School have already registered for the match.

Last season hundreds of children took part in parades and contributed to a buzzing atmosphere inside the Swansway Chester Stadium.

With the match live on BT Sport, schools have the chance to get themselves on television and children are encouraged to wear their school kits, bring flags and banners, and make lots of noise!

As well as parading around the pitch at half-time, youngsters will have the opportunity to meet some of the players before the game for photos and autographs, and Lupus, the Club’s mascot.

Admission for a teacher and a team of 11 children is just £30. Unlimited extra children can be added at £3 each and parents, grandparents, family and friends can come along and join the fun at £10 each.

Schools wishing to register or find out further details can email community@chesterfc.com or call 07512 355396.
