This season we smashed our attendance record at the Deva, hitting 240 fans who came out to watch us play. This included my whole family, which was a very special day for me!

Bryson Kelso – “The Under 18’s team has a very talented group of young ladies that will be pushing to get into our development squad. Chester FC has helped me develop my coaching skill set by working closely with the head of the Women’s and girls section, whilst upgrading the facilities available to the girls in the form of the ‘KGV Sports Hub’ which has made a massive difference to all the women’s and girls section. I can’t wait to watch the girls grow, develop and take our club up the pyramid!”
ETC (Emerging Talent Centre)

This is a huge achievement for the club and one that will provide many opportunities for players to be involved more than ever.
