AWARD TEN: Special recognition award

Closer to 50 than 20, this player played every minute of every game this season and due to lockdown curtailing the season means that he finishes the season just four games short of making Chester the club for which he has most appearances.

Despite not picking up the main award and finishing third in the CFU Player of the Season, he made the majority of supporters top three selections through his leadership on and off the pitch, consistency every time he plays – and few will forget that last gasp winner against King’s Lynn. The special recognition award goes to SIMON GRAND. 

CFU Chairman Andy Morris finished off the Awards by thanking the players, staff, supporters, volunteers and sponsors for their tremendous support throughout the 2019/2020 season.
