Last night, Declan Weeks made his 100th Chester FC appearance!
The influential Blues midfielder has become the seventh player to hit a century since reformation after George Horan, Craig Mahon, Anthony Dudley, Simon Grand, Danny Livesey and Kevin Roberts.
Weeks initially joined the Seals back in September 2020, the 27-year-old hit the ground running and has never looked back, impressing ever since.
Declan scored on his Blues debut, the winner in a 2-1 victory at Kidderminster Harriers, and went on to make 22 appearances in his first campaign for the club. He scored four goals and was named the Managers Player of the Season at the end of the curtailed 2020/21 campaign.
The Welshman was quick to be signed up for the following season and had a fantastic individual campaign in 2021/22.
Weeks made 38 appearances, scoring nine times, a record that earned him the joint Golden Boot award. His all-round performances were further rewarded with the Players’ Player of the Season and Away Travel Player of the Season.
Manager Calum McIntyre arrived last summer and further underlined the importance of Weeks, acting quickly to tie him down to a new two-year deal at the Deva Stadium.
With Club Captain George Glendon out injured for the season, Declan was named Captain for 2022/23 and has taken on the extra responsibility in typically inspired fashion – scoring five times and contributing eleven assists in 28 league appearances so far as the Blues sit third in the table.
He’s a huge part of the club both on and off the field, long may it continue.
