    Preview: King’s Lynn Town (h)

    Chester’s first home game of the National League North campaign brings fellow 22/23 Play Off Semi Finalists King’s Lynn to the Deva.

    The Blues were beaten last Saturday in their season opener at Bishop’s Stortford, and Manager Calum McIntyre could now be set to be without several of his key players for the next few games due to injury.

    One positive from the week was the Man United friendly, which saw Club Captain George Glendon make his return to action after over a year out – he is expected to feature.


    King’s Lynn Town finished second last season, one place above the Blues. Both sides that face off this weekend were beaten at home in their respective Play-Off Semi Finals last term.

    Manager Mark Hughes will be known to Chester fans, having played 69 games for the club between 2007 and 2009. The Linnets opened the campaign with a 2-2 draw at home to Hereford last weekend.


    Kick off is 3pm on Saturday afternoon at the Deva Stadium. The postcode for the ground is CH1 4LT.


    Supporters are advised that while the temporary capacity reduction is in place, matchday admission will not be available at turnstiles, meaning tickets will have to either be bought online at chesterfc.ktckts.com or at the Ticket Office.

    Once again this season, supporters benefit from a discount when buying tickets in advance via our online ticketing platform – with a £1 increase on matchday.

    With our costs as a football club rising significantly over the past 12 months, we have reluctantly introduced small increases to admission prices.

    Admission prices are as follows (matchday prices are in brackets):

    Harry McNally (North) Terrace

    • Adults £16 (£17) 
    • Concessions £14 (£15) 
    • 18-21 £11 (£12)

    • Under 12’s FREE (£2)*

    • Under 12’s FREE (FREE)* 

    *Free admission for Under 12’s with an accompanied adult 

    We advise supporters wanting to purchase their tickets at the office on a matchday to arrive earlier than normal to reduce queuing times.

    The quickest and easiest way to buy match tickets is via our online ticketing platform at chesterfc.ktckts.com. Online sales will now be available until kick off and you simply need to present your printed ticket or mobile phone to be scanned at the turnstile.
