YOUTH | Young Blues at the Deva this Monday!

Chester FC host Hartlepool United at the Deva Stadium in the First Round of the inaugural National League Academies Cup this Monday!

Kick off is 7pm. Admission will be free but donations will be welcome at the turnstile.

This is why it’s so important you help us make a difference at the Deva on Monday…

The Blues will name an Under 19 side in this new competition which is open to all clubs within the National League system, regardless of what level their Youth sides compete at.

There is a Northern section and a Southern Section, culminating in Regional finals to progress two winners through to the national finals.

With this new competition running alongside the Youth Team’s FA Youth Cup and National League Alliance League Cup campaigns, it is expected that the Blues will field an Under 19 side with opportunities set to be given to the seven Academy Graduates that signed first team forms in the summer as well as the most promising Youth Team players.

The clubs participating in the Northern Section of the competition are as follows…

Chester FC
Hartlepool United
AFC Fylde
Chesterfield FC
Wrexham AFC
York City
Kidderminster Harriers
FC Halifax Town
Alfreton Town
Solihull Moors
Boston United

Last day for ticket orders is Thursday 7 November.

The game kicks off at 7pm and is FREE admission at the Deva Stadium on the 11th, although donations at the gate will be greatly appreciated and every penny goes towards the fantastic work the youth department continue to do.

For any fans that are unable to attend but wish to make a donation, you can do so in the Gazebo before the Alfreton game on the Saturday.


We will also be running an eight-page copy of The Cestrian programme for the game, costing just £1. Again, every penny counts to the academy so even just buying a copy of the programme will make a big difference!
