|An incredible crowd of 1065 turned up at the Swansway Chester Stadium, after supporters were asked to turn up to help with Chester's current cash flow problems.
Over £12,000 was raised on a fantastic night for Chester, who secured victory, and their place in the quarter-finals with a Cain Noble goal after only 10 minutes.
Chester head coach Calum McIntyre spoke to Chester FC TV after the game and had this to say:
people have just rocked up and over £12,000 has been raised for this
football club. That is phenomenal. Thank you to everyone.
full of praise for the players tonight as there is a whole group of
players who have never played here before, and that is really difficult.
The first time they rock up here there is 1,000 noisy Chester fans here
to support them".
