Chester's Game Against Brackley Postponed

Chester's game against Brackley set to be played next Saturday has been postponed.

The club has released a statement in which they report that they have met with Welsh Government, Flintshire Council and Cheshire West & Chester Council.

'However  (we) do not yet feel that this matter has reached a definitive resolution and will be obtaining further legal advice.

Whilst enforcement action remains a possibility, we are not prepared to risk the security of the Club or our supporters, as such the Board have made the difficult decision to postpone this week’s home fixtures.

Open, constructive discussions are continuing with a shared commitment to identifying a long-term solution that recognises the unique geography and historical context of the Deva Stadium site.

The Board will be seeking advice in respect of the potential breaches of the Welsh Coronavirus Regulations, which legislation will be applicable to the Club in the future and to establish any implications the Welsh Government’s proposed offer of financial support may have as an English football club'.
