Neil Young Departs Chester FC!
Chester FC fans are in utter and complete shock today after hearing that their manager Neil Young has departed the club for family reasons. Having been their manager since Chester reformed back in 2010, Young has guided Chester to the Skrill Premier.
During his time at Chester Young has won three successive titles the first being NPL Division One north, in 2011 he won the Evo-Stik Premier Division. The last title he won was in 2012 when he won the Conference North title.
Young had this to say about the matter "It is a sad day for me, I have really enjoyed my time here at Chester but unfortunately I had no choice to leave. The club is in safe hands and will be just fine without me, I wish good luck to the new man whoever that will be and I will always have a soft spot for Chester FC"
Chester now need to act quick to find a new manager with just over two months before the season starts, the new manager will have his work cut out to turn Chester into a promotion side this season.
It has yet to be seen who the new manager will be, but the Chester fans are urging the board to really think about the appointment and get in a manager that knows the Skrill Premier well and has knowledge of the game.
An outsider for the job is Michael Owen, he has just retired from the game and has said that he is looking to get into football management. With Owen being born in Chester he will know the area well and is a "legend" here at Chester already. But then again I guess it could all be false and untrue I guess we will have to wait and see!
