Another one bites the dust...

Well the news filtered through that the Clitheroe game was off, and one wonders when we will play again with this cold snap that's really having a major effect on the sporting world right now.

Judging by the fact that it was -14C in Clitheroe on Thursday night, it's no real surprise that the game is off, but it is still really frustrating that we cannot press on and put some more points up on the board.

The Woodley Sports game must also be at risk as the temperatures are set to remain sub-zero and this morning was one of the coldest outside - minus 8 when getting in the car for work - freeeeeeeezing!

It'll be a real shame if the Woodley game is off as we're due to have Stuart Rimmer in attendance as the Legend of the Week, but with the icy conditions spreading in to next week it's not looking good.

It's been a relatively quiet week in my role at Chester FC, what with the lack of matches, but great to see that Neil Young was recognised with the Manager of the Month Award for November - richly deserved. Let's hope the only curse is that the game was postponed, as we know that poor results tend to follow MOTM awards, but hopefully not for Neil.

Last Tuesday night, myself & NATV completed our interviews for the upcoming DVD's that are heading to the club shop soon, although what was supposed to be a 20 minute interview with Neil turned out to be a 45 minute one, and we only just had time to squeeze Michael Wilde's second interview in, having had a problem with the playback last week.

Wildey was delighted to have to come out of the spinning session that they were on, and received plenty of stick when I led him out towards the studio in which we were camped for the interviews!

It's great to see the lads training at Total Fitness, and its quite an impressive sight when you see them all file in in their Chester FC training gear.

Anyway, the week has been filled up with the disgraceful and farcical decision to snub England's fantastic bid for the World Cup in 2018, everyone knows that the English bid was far superior in every way, but it appears that they knew who they were going to award it to before even going into the place to vote.

Right that's it for this week.
