MATCH PREVIEW | Chester vs Gloucester City | National League North
The Blues, fresh from another dramatic ending on Tuesday night, put their unbeaten start on the line once more tomorrow afternoon.
Bern and Jonno’s side scored an injury time equaliser for the second successive midweek on Tuesday night at Kettering Town. Akwasi Asante’s late pen was a big plus – back from injury – as was the substitute appearance of Matty Hughes who too made an impact from the bench.
Gloucester City have two wins from two on the road so far this term. After moving across from the National League South, they sit in 6th position with those two victories away at Kidderminster Harriers and Blyth Spartans. In fact, Mike Cook’s side have won nine of their eleven away matches in 2019 – a quite astonishing record.
They come up against a Chester FC side who have lost just two of their twelve home games in the calendar year. A fantastic record for both sides makes for an exciting encounter tomorrow afternoon at the Deva.

FREE SEASON TICKET FOR SCHOOLS SCHEME
Chester FC and Chester FC Community Trust have teamed up to provide more than 50 local schools with a free family season ticket for the 2019/20 campaign.
The family season ticket will admit two adults and two children for free to each of the club’s home Vanarama National League North fixtures.
Schools can use the season ticket to reward or incentivise children through the year and although the scheme is not expected to be fully utilised until September, the Community Trust hopes the following points are helpful for visiting families:
1) The season ticket will admit two adults and two children to home league matches during the 2019/20 season. It may be used to admit one adult and three children if required.
2) The season ticket should be presented to the turnstile operator at trunstile six in the Swettenham Chemists’ Community Stand (West Stand) on the day of the match. Turnstiles normally open 45 minutes before kick-off.
3) Seating is unreserved so you may sit in any seat you choose, except those marked as ‘Season Ticket Holders’.
4) There are refreshment kiosks selling hot and cold drinks and snacks within each stand along with toilet facilities. The Blues Bar at the stadium is also open before and after every game for refreshments and the Club Shop sells a range of clothing and merchandise.
5) An information point is available on matchdays in the ticket office should visitors have any questions or be unsure of where to go.
Both Chester FC and Chester FC Community Trust look forward to welcoming you to the Deva Stadium and we hope you enjoy watching the Blues this season. If you have any questions about the scheme or your visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
