Not every city can boast its own American Football team.
But Chester Romans have been putting the city on the map in this tough, physical sport.
And their achievements have been recognised with a nomination in the Sporting Champion of the Year category of this year’s Your Champions awards
For the first time in nearly 14 years, the Chester Romans American Football team have reached the semi-finals of the British American Football Association National League.
Under new guidance this year from a new committee, the team worked tirelessly on and off the pitch to better themselves.
Having started the season as ‘outsiders’, they put up a tough fight going 9-1 in their regular season, beating teams who had been demoted from the premiership division last year, and clinching the National Central Division Champions title.
They also dedicated their annual charity match to MacMillan for Cancer Support, raising £450 for them.
The team has been nominated by Emma Ireland who said: “It's been an amazing year for the Romans and I think they deserve recognition.”
