THIS season The Chester Chronicle will be showing support for two Blues heroes, writes Mark Dowling.

Keen Chester FC fan and flag-maker Sean O’Reilly teamed up with Chronicle photographer Ian Cooper to create two enormous 10ft flags which will be proudly going on display at the Deva Stadium ready for the club’s first year back in The Skrill Premier.

One of the flags features defender George Horan, who has captained the side to three titles, while the other features manager Neil Young.

Sean explained where the idea came from.

He said: “It was just an idea that came to me as I was travelling into work.

“The club of old had many heroes and in George Horan we have our own local boy who is very much a hero.

“I thought it would be good to do something to celebrate that and maybe provide an inspiration to the other players.

“The flag turned out so big it’s actually too large to be waved about, so it’s going to be hung on one of the walls inside the club.

“With Neil Young, he gives the fans everything that they want and more. He has rode the crest of a wave and we would never have thought we would be where we are now.”

 Sean added the club was looking for flag-waving families to get in touch to boost matchday atmosphere. For more details, call 01244 371376.
