Chester Cut Prices To Get Crowds Back

Chester City have cut prices in a bid to get more locals back to the Deva Stadium.

After barely 1,500 home supporters turned out for their Wednesday match with Bury the club have announced a £2 reduction in admission across the board for the visit of Torquay on March 1st.

Both that game, and the Bulls trip up the A49 next Tuesday, will also see Kids being allowed into the West Stand free of charge with a paying adult. As the West Stand is home supporters only this promotion is unlikely to be open to away supporters.

Chester have also announced that they are to report a small operating profit for the 2005/06 season, the first time in several years that the club has turned a profit. The full results will be published at the, yet to be announced, AGM.

Meanwhile, Chester captain Roberto Martinez has been confirmed as the new manager at Swansea. The former Swans player officially left Chester earlier this afternoon and is reported to be taking Chester assistant Graham Barrow with him as his No.2.
