A day for news stories!

Yesterday was certainly a busy day as far as the news stories was concerned on the official site, as there seemed to be more and more content coming available each hour!

The first news came in during the morning when it was confirmed that Jimmy McCarthy had signed for Chester, and interesting to read a few old news stories about Jimmy on the BBC website, one of which stated that he had been plucked from the pub league before heading to Crewe from Kidsgrove - let's hope that Neil has signed 'probably the best striker in the world' then!

Then, time for the post match analysis from Neil Young following the game at Ossett on saturday, and as always Neil was happy to talk about the game, picking out the various points for discussion from the game, and also looking ahead to the Sutton Coldfield game tonight, so time to load that up to the site.

Next up, an afternoon release as more good news came out of the club, with a new initiative that offers the chance to get youngsters from the local community into the club to have the chance to gain themselves national sporting qualifications - great to see this kind of news coming out of our football club, and also great to see Danny Jones involved again too.

So, left work at 4pm, and once home time to prepare for last night's City Fans United meeting, which was set to include the exciting SGM part(!), but before the meeting more news to deliver as the details of the new footy show on Dee 106.3 which will take place every Friday night at 6pm for an hour - myself and Chris Pilsbury will be joining Chester fan Shane Pinnington in the studio for the first edition this week, mind you if Chris rambles on for long, they'll have the adverts on before you know it!

Once the meeting had ended last night, we found out that Chorley had been beaten at Warrington which knocks one of their games in hand on us out of the way, the W's are certainly having an impact on Chorley's season, with the dropped points at Wakefield on Saturday, followed by last night's defeat to the Wire, and next away game for them is Witton, who do seem to have lost form themselves since we beat them in that crazy crazy end to a match at Wincham Park.

The Blues then can stretch their lead at the top to 9 points if we beat Skem on Saturday, and that would be a huge blow to our title rivals, but obviously we'll be keeping an eye on Curzon Ashton who have about 17 games in hand on us it seems - when do they ever play their games???

Looking forward to tonight's Cup match against Sutton Coldfield, who are making the journey up from the midlands tonight, with it being a Cup game, always a chance to relax and who knows, I may just end up on the Harry Mac again tonight at some point to watch the game from a different angle.

C'mon you Blues!
