THE Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan last night paid tribute to his manager Keith Curle, and the strong infrastructure that is being created at the Deva Stadium.
City's first team currently lie in fifth position in Coca-Cola League Two, and the club's emerging young players are also making their mark at their own level.
"All the publicity is quite rightly going to the first team and the excellent start they have made to the season, and now the unwanted speculation surrounding Keith and the vacant Bristol Rovers managerial position has gone away, the potential destabilising effect of that approach has gone away," said Vaughan.
"Things are buzzing at the moment at the club and these are exciting times. Keith and his staff have done an excellent job and thank heavens his ambitions are the same as mine.
"However, besides the first team we are building an impressive infrastructure and youth set up at the club which augurs well for the future. In the past week we have signed Paul Rutherford on to professional forms, Paul emerged from the junior set up and I am sure there will be more lads coming through."
