CFCW Preview: Altrincham (h)

    Chester FC Women return to the Leap76 Stadium for the final time this season, as they welcome Altrincham FC Women on Wednesday evening looking to end their home campaign on a high.

    The Blues bounced back from defeat at league leaders Wythenshawe, by edging a seven goal thriller against Ellesmere Port Town Ladies.

    Goals from Sarah Redman, Emma Gray, an own goal and the late winner Rach Lloyd ensured Chester took maximum points on the road for seventh time this campaign to remain four points behind second place Poulton with a game in hand.

    Wednesday’s visitors come into the midweek clash on the back of a couple of heavy defeats in recent weeks, most recently last time out suffering a 9-2 defeat at Hindley Women.

    The Manchester outfit currently find themselves in tenth place in the table on five points with a just a single win to their name this campaign. Chester claimed all three points when the two sides met in the reverse fixture, a 4-2 win on the road in September.


    Kick off is 7pm tonight at the Leap76 Stadium, CH1 4LT.

    Entry to the game is payment via contactless at the turnstiles, or simply by scanning your CFCW Season Ticket at the gate. Matchday prices are as follows…

    • £3 Adults
    • £2 Concessions
    • £1 Under 16’s

    Refreshments for the game will be available in the Main Stand kiosk.


    ● Chester have won 80% of their home games to date this season, with eight wins from ten games.

    ● A win on Wednesday evening, would see Chester close the gap on Poulton to a single point with two games remaining.
