ON behalf of the Chester City Exiles, I would like to congratulate Steve Vaughan, Mark Wright and the team, and everyone at Chester City, for the fantastic achievement of winning the Nationwide Conference.
I don't think any of us, whatever age, has ever enjoyed a season so much, even if our nerves have been completely shattered during the past few weeks!
Our expectations now have probably been raised to a level that is going to be difficult to maintain. But having seen the level of professionalism in the club over the past season, we surely must have a much brighter future with the current owner and management team.
The Exiles had only one disappointment this season, which was the forced postponement of our sponsored match (due to Aldershot's progress in the FA Trophy) which was to celebrate our 20th birthday.
However, we are looking forward to celebrating our 21st anniversary next season with an early sponsored game - when both the Exiles and Chester City will come of age in the Football League!
Nevertheless, although we are exiled miles away from Chester and even over-seas, we haven't stopped celebrating since Saturday!
Thank you for a brilliant season. See you in Division Three.
PAULINE MEAKINS Chair, Chester City Exiles, Cambridge.
