Neil Young’s first team are not the only Chester FC side closing in on championship glory.
The under 17s Colts moved a step closer to sealing the North West Youth Alliance Second Division title on Sunday with a 5-2 victory at Abbey Hey Youth.
The win was Calum McIntyre’s team’s 13th from as many matches and owed everything to a second-half display that showed off their array of attacking talent.
Calum Woods set up Tom Peers to open the scoring before Joe Williams doubled the advantage with a neat finish.
Abbey Hey battled back to level the contest but there was only ever going to be one winner after Peers poked in his second goal.
The outstanding Williams also helped himself to a brace, heading in after Josh Rimmer had saw a lobbed effort come back off the bar, before crossing for Anthony Stanton to fire in his first league goal of the season.
Chester FC Youth had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Hyde in the North West Youth Alliance Premier Division on Sunday.
The hosts initially fared better with the atrocious conditions, forcing man-of-the-match Ollie Foster to make a series of superb saves. However they fell behind when Jack Roberts took advantage of a defensive mix up.
Hyde equalised after the restart but looked to be heading for defeat after Chester finally made their dominance count through Sean Miller.
Miller later had a chance to make the game safe but his shot went agonisingly wide. Relieved by the let off, Hyde netted in injury-time to snatch a point.
