    The Season So Far.

    After over sixty years supporting them I've learnt to accept the down periods and enjoy the up ones. I'll leave the 'end of the world is nigh' naysayers to their doom and gloom. Que sera sera, as they say.

    We'll also be missing a key player who was sent off on saturday, so it's all square on that front.

    2018-19 National League North

    'Strongly protested' on what grounds? It's being played next tuesday, so where's the problem.

    Thanks. I understand he's a left-sided player and as we only have one other, there's a chance he'll get plenty of opportunities. We have several promising youth players who are on the 'small' side, so he probably won't look out of place. :)

    We've signed 19 year-old Dan Mooney on loan from Fleetwood. He was at Chorley last season - any comments from Chorley fans?

    Sounds good. J&M seem to have concentrated on signing defenders and (defensive?) midfielders so far. But with the release of Hannah & James, I guess we may see some activity in bolstering the attacking options.

    Spennymoor (H) for us on opening day.

    2018-19 National League North

    Ross Hannah & Kingsley James have agreed to terminate their contracts. Frees up money for J&M and completes the near total clear-out of last year's squad. Still only have eleven senior pros to face Liverpool on Saturday.

    We've signed Gary Stopforth (midfielder ex Salford?) today.

    He's available. You just need to pay him (there won't be a transfer fee).

    We've signed Dominic Smalley from Ashton United (full-back apparently). Not familiar with any of the new signings so far (excluding ex youth teamers), so the pre-season will be interesting.

    Thanks for comment on the player. Not sure our fans are expecting immediate promotion though, just some stability as we get ourselves back on track. We're essentially in re-build mode on a (very) modest budget.

    Signed Grant Shelton (GK) and Steve Howson today. Two more of the managers' old favourites I guess. Any comments on them (from those who have seen them play :happy:), as I don't recognise either name.

    What was the problem with him? As BlueandWhite said, we had him a few seasons back when he looked very quick and dangerous, and seemed destined for better things.

    Chester next to go?

    I doubt anybody considers sponsorship (ie paid for advertising) as bankrolling. Any money we get will be invested in infrastructure. Fans who expect an increase in the playing budget are going to be disappointed.

    Chester next to go?

    Yup. The playing budget will be increased from 250K to 255K. Instant return here we come. :ffs::bg:

    Chester next to go?

    Hopefully it will re-establish some stability, even if the on-field success isn't great next season.
