The Dabbers will host National League North outfit Chester FC in a Pre-Season friendly on Saturday 7th August at the Optimum Pay Stadium.

Chester are currently managed by former Salford City joint-managers Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson who joined in 2018. Unfortunately Chester’s 2020/21 season fell victim to the pandemic as it was curtailed after just 17 games. At the time The Seals found themselves in third place with a keen eye on the automatic promotion spots.

The last time the two sides met was in February 2019 in the Cheshire Senior Cup Quarter Final. The Dabbers ran out 1-0 winners on the night thanks to Danny Glover’s second half goal. Unforgettably, The Dabbers went onto beat Cammell Laird in the final to win the title of best team in Cheshire for the second time in as many seasons!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming the Players, Officials and Supporters of Chester to The Optimum Pay Stadium, and as it will be one of the last non-competitive games before our Northern Premier League season starts on the 14th August, It should be a cracking game!

Ticket information for the fixture will be announced closer to the date of the fixture.
