PREVIEW | Chester vs Bury AFC
The Blues are back at the Deva for the second successive Saturday, as fellow fan-owned club Bury AFC visit CH1.
Last weekend saw a 2-0 defeat to EFL side Sheffield Wednesday, but it was an extremely positive workout against a team three leagues above the Seals.
A young Chester XI then went to Clitheroe on the Sunday and won 1-0 – with Ethan Cartwright bagging the winner.
Bury reformed in 2019 and ply their trade in the North West Counties Division One North. Two weeks ago, they drew 1-1 away at another supporter-owned club in FC United of Manchester.
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.
