NEARLY 100 Blues supporters flew the flag for their new ‘Chester Football Club’ at FC United of Manchester’s Youth United Day on Saturday.
The City Fans United members, including 30 Junior Blues, were given a warm welcome by the 3,000-crowd at Bury’s Gigg Lane and wished luck in their quest to beat the Danes and gain the lease at the vacant Deva Stadium.
Proud parent Phil Spencer, of Elton, said: “It was very emotional, especially at the end of the game when the FC United fans stopped celebrating their own win to chant ‘Chester, Chester’.”
CFU community officer Mark Howell added: “The fantastic, family-friendly atmosphere would be something that we will be trying extremely hard to emulate should we be granted our wishes by the council.
“It was touching to see the reaction of other supporters to our children – the real spirit of football was there for everyone to see.”
CFU members are reminded that the group’s April meeting takes places at the Home Guard Club, Canal Street, Chester, tonight (8pm).
