THE Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan will travel to Saturday's final game of this momentous Nationwide Conference season against Hereford United by train - with the City supporters.

He will then join the 2,000 all-ticket travelling fans on the terraces at Edgar Street, to watch the game.

"The fans have been brilliant throughout this great campaign, and after our championship-clinching match at the weekend, some of the supporters invited me to join them in their reserved carriage, and I thought it would also be great to join them on the terraces," said Vaughan.

"Chester City is a club that tries to embrace the community, and also we appreciate and respect the contribution that our supporters make towards the success of our club. If this small gesture indicates the solidarity that we hope we are creating then that's tremendous."

Meanwhile, Vaughan is to have a further meeting with City manager Mark Wright to hopefully thrash out a contract for the former Liverpool and England defender.

Wright has been linked with a number of managerial vacancies during the past months, the latest club to have shown interest being Walsall yesterday, a point not lost on the City chairman.

He said: "There is a long term contract on the table for Mark, hopefully we can agree something in the next week or so.

"Mark has a job for life here if he wants it, he has done exceptionally well in the 2 1/2 years he's been at the Deva Stadium."

Wright had his player availability bolstered for Saturday's game at Hereford when striker Ian Foster returned to the club last night following his two month loan spell with Kidderminster Harriers.

Chester's reserve side are in action this evening when they travel to Crosby to face Marine at College Road (kick-off 7.30pm) in a Lancashire League fixture.
