PREVIEW | Chester vs Sheffield Wednesday
Game two of pre-season sees the Blues welcome fans back to the Deva, as we host EFL side Sheffield Wednesday.
Bern and Jonno’s side kicked off pre-season with a 6-0 win at Elton Vale last Saturday. This has been followed by a hugely successful training camp this week at the University of Bangor.
💙 #ChesterFC would like to thank everyone at @BangorSport for hosting the #Blues' pre-season training camp.
We've had a fantastic week in North Wales and look forward to returning soon. 😃

They now return ready for two games this weekend, starting with the three-time FA Cup winners. Darren Moore’s men concluded a 10-day training camp in Wales with a 3-1 defeat to Celtic in midweek.
The Owls are planning for life in League One this term after a final day relegation from the Championship in May.
We are all set to welcome back a restricted attendance to the Deva for this match, the first since December. A Blues XI then go to Clitheroe on Sunday for a midday kick off – before taking on Bury AFC on the 17th back down CH1.
Tickets for this game were available online but, due to restrictions, the sales window closed at 6pm on Friday. However, you can still watch live on our streaming platform. A match pass costs just £6.99.
