Blues on BT

Chester FC's first TV date of 2017 has been confirmed.

Potential kit clash?

Solihull Moors before their FA Cup clash with Luton Town

This is the Solihull Moors home kit.

Chester travel to the Midlands on Boxing Day and might have to think ahead to avoid a tricky situation. The Blues' yellow away kit will certainly clash, would the home strip too?

Tranmere controversy

Tranmere Rovers striker James Norwood has been under fire for 'blacking up' for the club’s Christmas party.

The 26-year-old footballer posted, and later deleted, a photo on Instagram showing him dressed as a street vendor selling sunglasses.

Dressed in ripped jeans, a white t-shirt and straw hat and with his face, arms and feet painted black, he wrote: “great Xmas do with the boys.. level - fancy dress - completed’.”

Football anti-racism charity Kick it Out described the costume as 'ill-thought-out'.

Volunteers praised

Jon McCarthy has backed those working behind the scenes for nothing at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.

Inspired by Sports Personality of the Year, he tweeted his support to those who give up their own time to keep Chester FC running.

The Blues boss said: “As I sat watching that, it just reminded me that our club is run by volunteers.

"I work closely with a lot of them, but there’s a lot of unseen stuff that they do that I don’t know about, and I just felt it was the right time to say something."
