The Chronicle has launched Blue Bloods for the 2015-16 season, a new feature giving a platform to those who matter most - the fans.
Each week we'll be asking one Chester FC supporter's opinions on happenings at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium, on and off the pitch.
We want more fans to join our panel of experts and you can register an interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch on Twitter @ChesterFC_Chron .
This week Adam Davies-Hyland offers his opinion on how the close season additions have shaped up over the first couple of games:

After the excellent start we've made to the season, it's has to be said that all six signings really are a step up from what we had last season, writes Adam Davies-Hyland.
With the addition of Ian Sharps, who has sured up the back line and communicates fantastically well with Heneghan, we have a partnership that is hard to break down, especially in the air.
Sharps' experience will bring Heneghan on leaps and bounds as the season progresses. You can already get a feel, especially from defending set-pieces, how sure we now are at the back with these two.
Johnny Hunt on the left side of defence also looks to be a great addition, with a debut goal on Saturday and a solid performance on Tuesday. He seems to have a great balance of bombing down the wing in support and tracking back effectively. He swung an absolutely sublime ball into the box in the first-half against Halifax, and if we see more of that through the season he'll definitely become a fans' favourite.
We had a ten minute spell in the build-up to the goal where Luke George and Tom Shaw showed why Burr was so pleased to sign the pair. Kingsley will be a big miss - Halifax's best player last night - but couldn't touch the midfield trio of John Rooney, Shaw and George when they were allowed that extra split-second on the ball to find one another, it was a joy to watch and if we can play for longer spells playing that style of football, there won't be many teams in this league who can handle us.
This brings me on to the right side of midfield where Jordan Chapell was causing absolute havoc for Halifax's left back. He was unlucky not to score on Saturday but managed to slot a lovely strike just out of the reach of Matt Glennon in the Halifax goal. He'll cause full-backs all sorts of problems if the first two games are anything to go by.
Our last summer signing, Ross Hannah, may not have got himself on the scoresheet yet but he hasn't stopped running for the cause in either game. Once the team gets more comfortable holding onto the ball for longer periods, which I believe they will, it'll give Hannah a chance to make that killer run behind the defenders, something which will have to happen if we are to get the best out of him.
Two games, two clean sheets. As a supporter I couldn't have asked for any more. But I want to give a special mention to the 495 fans who travelled to The Shay, you could see it in the players faces just how much they appreciated the non-stop singing when the whistle finally blew. It was truly a pleasure to be among such a fantastic set of supporters.
