PRE SEASON PREVIEW | Vauxhall Motors vs Chester

    Following a ten-day break from pre-season action, the Blues are back tonight at the Syncreon Arena against Vauxhall Motors.

    A narrow defeat at Buxton a week last Saturday brought some more positive signs and vital minutes for first teamers. This was followed up seven days ago with a behind closed doors training victory over a Salford City XI.

    George Waring missed the first couple of pre-season games due to injury, but has scored three times over the two above games – linking up effectively with Danny Elliott, who also has two in two.

    The Motormen had a fantastic season last term, having already mathematically clinched the North West Counties League First Division South title with seven games to spare, before the COVID pandemic. However, they were cruelly denied promotion when results at step 3 of non-league football and below were expunged and wiped from the records.


    Due to government guidelines only 300 paying spectators are permitted to enter the stadium.

    Unfortunately, this means if the 300 tickets are sold out you will not be allowed entrance to the stadium and will be turned away. However, to prevent any disappointment, the turnstiles open at 6:15pm, an hour and a half before kick-off.

    Vauxhall Motors are operating by accepting cash upon arrival at turnstiles. They strongly advise bringing the correct admission fee to prevent any unnecessary handling of money – and will NOT be accepting card payments.

    Admission fees are as follows: Adults £6, Concessions £4 and U16’s £2.

    Upon arrival, you will have to fill out a track and trace form (name and number), this is co-operating with government guidance.


    Kick off tonight at the Syncreon Arena is 7.45pm. The Sat Nav postcode for the stadium is CH66 1NJ.
