A situation that had long been beyond being a farce finally looks like entering its end game this evening after Chester City failed to fulfil their Blue Square Premier fixture against Forest Green Rovers.
Back at home, Chester City stumble from crisis to crisis, but a sale price of £1 is attracting interest in people seem to like those odds. Their interests, however, are likely to be at odds with those of the supporters of the club.
Chester again. The club has been offered to the supporters but they don’t have long to carry out due diligence, considering that the club is due at the high court for a winding up hearing on Wednesday. So, is this more brinkmanship, or is the white flag finally being raised by the club’s owners?
The supporters group Chester Fans United may not have reached a consensus over whether they should formally call a boycott of their club, but it seems to have started already. They beaten 1-0 at home in the Blue Square Premier last night by Salisbury City in front of a record low crowd of just 425.
Chester City continue to lurch from crisis to crisis, and the only realistic action left for the club’s supporters is to boycott the club and form a new one. How much help can they expect from anyone else, though, and can Chester City be evicted from The Deva Stadium.
Chester City’s Stephen Vaughan still hasn’t sold his interest in the club, and his latest appointment at The Deva Stadium does little to instil much confidence that anything is going to improve in the near future. However, at least one potential buyer now seems to be off their radar.
Stephen Vaughan wins again, prolonging the demise of Chester City Football Club a little longer as the authorities roll over and allow themselves to have their bellies tickled again. What this sorry tale is confiriming is the harsh truth that football supporters don’t really have anyone on their side.
