Another season packed with memorable moments. Jon McCarthy’s reign got off to a promising start, with the Blues defying expectations to sit 7th at Christmas. However, injuries took their toll and Chester slipped down the table to finish the season in 19th place. McCarthy’s men showed their fighting spirit on plenty of occasions though, most notably the 2-2 draw away at Tranmere – fighting back from two goals down thanks to Tom Shaw’s header and Ryan Astles’ incredible injury time volley. Big news was to follow when the season concluded – as Academy Graduate Sam Hughes was sold to Premier League Leicester City for an undisclosed fee.
