Michael Wilde, whose goals fired the Blues to the Evo-Stik Division One North title in the reformed club's inaugural season, has been confirmed as the latest Chester FC Hall of Fame inductee.
Wilde will receive the honour at the home game with Dartford on Tuesday, March 17.
Neil Young signed the Birkenhead-born striker from Fleetwood in July 2010 and he scored a hat-trick in the fan-owned club's first home league match, a 6-0 win against Trafford.
Wilde ended the campaign with 36 goals in just 43 league games as the Blues clinched the title in a nail-biting finale at Garforth.
Although injuries restricted his appearances the following season, Wilde was part of the Chester squad that won the Evo-Stik Premier Division title.
He scored 46 goals in 66 games in all competitions before leaving in summer 2012 to join The New Saints, where he still plays.
Wilde's nomination, made by the Chester Former Players Association, is unusual given his relatively short career at the club but Alan Tarbuck, part of the FPA committee, has no doubts over his credentials.
“Michael inspired the crowd as well as his team-mates through his goal-scoring record," said Tarbuck.
"If he was in the team, people simply knew he would score and we would win. He made an incredible impact in his first season by going in where angels fear to tread.
"He was so strong in the six-yard box, he constantly hustled the opposition back four, and when he sniffed a chance he didn’t hold back.”
Wilde will become the 13th member of the Chester FC Hall of Fame alongside Grenville Millington, Gary Talbot, Daryl Clare, Peter Jackson, Stuart Rimmer, Trevor Storton, Derek Draper, Iain Jenkins, Mike Metcalf, Elfed Morris, Ken Roberts and George Horan.
