READ | James Hardy speaks after joining the Blues

    Earlier today, it was announced that James Hardy had joined Chester FC.

    Here’s what he had to say to after joining the club…

    Q: James, welcome to Chester. For supporters who aren’t familiar, tell us a bit about yourself!

    A: I’m an attacking player. I can play out wide on either flank or behind the striker. I like to get on the ball and make things happen, and hopefully the fans here can enjoy that.

    Q: You finished last season at Altrincham in the National League, how did you find that?

    A: I’d played in that division with Fylde previous, obviously it is a good standard. It was nice to be able to carry on playing after this level got curtailed when I was with Telford. I enjoyed my time at Alty but things just didn’t work out and I’d been looking for a new club since.

    Q: You were at Telford last term, a side we had two of our best performances against during 20/21! What are your memories of those games?

    A: I remember them well, especially the match at our place. We got passed off the park to be fair. I know a couple of the lads here and I remember watching the football being played and thinking it would be decent to be a part of the team that day. We couldn’t get near them that day! I know the way the Managers want to try and play here and think it’ll suit me down to the ground.

    Q: The new season is not far away now, what can we achieve this season?

    A: We’ve all got to be aiming to go up this year. When last season got cancelled in January/February time, you were in with a great chance. So we will keep pushing for promotion this time around.
