This week Andy Jones discusses pre-season optimism, the summer signings and his faith in manager Steve Burr:
What is your mood heading into the new campaign and what have you made of pre-season?
I never normally read to much into pre-season but the results in recent weeks have been very promising for Chester and I enter the season with higher expectations then I have had since the Conference North winning season.
As pre-season has moved on, Chester have started to play better and better and I've been impressed with how the new signings have fitted straight in and how the 'old guard' have stepped up.

What's your view on the signings made this summer? Who has impressed most? Who still needs to find top gear?
Once again, Steve Burr has been shrewd in the transfer market. He has signed players of proven quality: Ian Sharps; Ross Hannah; Jonny Hunt; Tom Shaw and Jordan Chapell. But the signing of Luke George is the one for me. He has been very impressive in the games I have seen.
I've not seen it personally yet, but I'm looking forward to watching Jordan Chapell step up and get down the wing with his pace and trickery.
How confident are you in the leadership of Steve Burr and what is a realistic objective for the club with him at the helm?
Steve Burr for me has been the perfect replacement for the achievements of Neil Young in the early years.
Some people were worried after the way we started last season but Steve was always calm and delivered as the season went on.
Steve has proven down the years that he can do it at this level on small budgets and there is no reason why over the next couple of seasons Chester can't push for the play-offs whilst he is at the helm.
