Preview: Bishop’s Stortford (a)

    National League North football returns this weekend as the Blues visit newly-promoted Bishop’s Stortford to kick off the season.

    Calum McIntyre’s men had a productive pre-season fixture schedule, ending with a positive performance and 2-0 victory over Marine last Saturday.

    After a third placed finish last term and a Play-Off Semi Final defeat, a new 46-game chapter starts for the Seals – looking to go one step beyond in 2023/24.


    Bishop’s Stortford were crowned Champions of the Isthmian Premier Division last season with 88 points from their 42 games. They had comfortably the best defensive record in the division, conceding on just 33 occasions.


    Manager Calum McIntyre looked ahead to the new season and previewed our opening day fixture on Episode #33 of The Seals Podcast.


    Kick off is 3pm this Saturday at the RDA Stadium. The address for the ground is Woodside Park, Dunmow Road, Herts, CM23 5RG.

    With a large crowd expected and following National League advice, we have been informed that the game will be segregated. Chester supporters will be placed at the Airport End of the RDA Stadium.


    Supporters will be able to purchase tickets at the gate, but can also buy online. Purchasing your tickets online in advance will help speed up your entry into the Stadium on matchday this weekend.
