The latest news from Chester FC Community Trust…
We Will Remember Them
It was an honour to welcome the Mercian Regiment, The Queen’s Own Yeomanry and members of the Chester Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club to Chester FC for two recent home fixtures.
At the Remembrance Weekend match with Altrincham, the club and supporters paid tribute to those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice with the laying of wreaths and a two minute’s silence.
We hope to continue strengthening the relationship between the club, Armed Forces and veterans in the coming months.
