Chester FC 's thrilling run in the FA Youth Cup is over.
After stunning Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers, Calum McIntyre's boys became victims of a shock themselves last night.
The young Blues were beaten 1-0 after extra-time in their third-round tie at Broxbourne Borough.
A header from corner in the second half of extra-time ensured it was Broxbourne, whose senior side are second-bottom in the Spartan South Midlands Football League, who progressed to the last 32.
Chester youth team manager McIntyre took to Twitter after the game to say: "Thank you for all your support. This is the best journey I have ever experienced. Sorry we couldn't go one further."
The stirring performances of the Blues in the FA Youth Cup have captured the imagination of the club's supporters with bumper crowds attending the superb victories over Fleetwood and Bolton at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.
And, while they were unable to set-up another massive match in the fourth round, their efforts were recognised by Chester fans after the defeat to Broxbourne.
