    You have included the Cambridge City video twice instead of the Clydebank match.

    Another video that you should watch if you have time is Chester vs Clitheroe, which can be found here- http://www.natv.co.uk/

    The game was the first home game for Chester since the passing away of one of the club’s directors Richard Wightman. In his time volunteering as membership officer of City Fans United (the supporter group that owns Chester FC), he oversaw the membership growing to over 2,700 members. This is a testament to the huge amount of effort he put into the club, often working late into the night to process memberships. In his final days he was still asking about Chester and couldn’t wait to get back and see the Blues once again. The match is a fitting tribute to his memory.

    Richard, I would be delighted to use these on the site, but they don’t seem to have an embedding facility and this is something that I don’t have time to do myself. I would quickly add that I was aware of the sad situation regarding Richard Wightman and of how important his work was in swelling the ranks of CFU. We pass on our most sincere condolencies.

    Thanks for the kind words. I am aware that the clips aren’t on youtube, but I think the club are working on getting the highlights up there at some point in the future. Nice and vague I know, but it’s something to look out for I suppose.

    Not exactly in keeping with the theme of supporters owned clubs, but take a look at Bootle FC TV and see what you think.
