TEAM OF THE DECADE | Craig Mahon is on the wing!
Craig Mahon is a record breaker and Chester FC legend – it is no surprise he makes your side!
A tricky winger with skill, high energy and an eagerness to work hard for the team, Mahon joined the club in May 2013 from Vauxhall Motors.
Upon arrival in CH1, Craig was initially sent out on loan to AFC Fylde, before making his mark on the Blues starting line up being recalled to score the winner in a 2-1 win at Hyde.
From that moment, ‘Mahony’ never looked back. Tearing up defences and making full backs dizzy, he was the shining light in the Blues FA Cup run to the Second Round in 2014/15.
After setting up a fantastic goal in the 4-2 qualifier win at Stockport County, he went on to score the winner at Southend in Round One. Incredibly, this was just the day after he became father to twins!
He was again excellent in the Second Round at Barnsley as the Blues drew 0-0 before losing in a replay.
In 2017, Craig made his 150th Blues appearance when we faced Tranmere – then on Tuesday 12th September 2017, Mahon became the Blues all time appearance record holder – surpassing George Horan’s 159 games in the Blue and White of Chester.
Mahon broke yet another record in 2018/19, making his 200th Chester FC appearance.
An incredible 239 Blues games under his belt, making him our longest serving player since reformation and also the record appearance holder for the club, the Irishman joined Altrincham in January of this year.
He will forever be loved by the Blues faithful. Craig Mahon is in your team of the decade!
