It's been a while, no doubt, but wasn't it great to have a spring in your step on a Monday for once?
You have to go all the way back to December 19 for the last time Chester FC supporters started another working week on the back of a weekend home win.
You'll forgive us, then, for dining out on the impressive 2-0 success over Maidenhead United for all it's worth...
Make no mistake, the scoreline flattered the Magpies. The highlights proved as much; highlights that you can now watch by clicking HERE .
That was an enjoyable six minutes, wasn't it?
Well, Dave Powell's player ratings make for pleasant reading, too...
And, while we've got you smiling, have a look at our picture gallery from the day. Terry Marland captured some cracking shots of the players and fans...
No doubt you'll have heard what Marcus Bignot had to say after his first game in charge of the Blues.
But here's his opposite number Alan Devonshire's verdict....
"To be fair we could have been two or three down at half-time so at the end of the day 2-0 flatters us.
"We got in a few good areas but there was a lack of quality and it was just a bad, bad day. Hopefully that’s all it is. It was all over the park, from one to 11 we were poor."
New No 2
The eagle-eyed among you may have spotted someone standing alongside Bignot on the sidelines in our picture gallery.
That'll be Ross Thorpe. It's not been announced officially, but he is the club's new assistant manager.
And we caught up with Bignot's right-hand man earlier today...
Not only was it Chester's first home win since December 17 (a run of 17 matches), it was also their first victory of any kind by more than one goal since the same date (a run of 34 matches).
And here's another stat for you: it was Maidenhead's first defeat by more than a one goal in 54 games.
The under-18s made it a club double on Sunday when they won 9-0 at home to Stockport County in the North West Youth Alliance Premier Division.
The young guns, meanwhile, have been drawn away to AFC Fylde in the FA Youth Cup second qualifying round.
Tickets for the trip to struggling neighbours Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, October 7 are now sale.
They cost £17 for adults, £10 for seniors (65+), 18-22-year-olds and disabled supporters (carers go free), £5 for 12-year-olds, and £2 for under-12s (who must be accompanied by an adult).
Fans can pay by cash at the turnstiles on the day at Prenton Park. It's worth noting, though, that there will be an increase of £2 on the advance prices with the exception of the U12s ticket.
