Chester City lost their place in Division Four of the The Football League in 2000 and competed in The Football Conference for four seasons before winning the Championship and regaining their Football League place in 2004.

After some disastrous financial transactions the club were expelled by The Conference and, under the guidance of ‘City Fans United’, the long suffering true supporters of the club, achieved the ‘rebirth’ of Chester FC who were accepted by The Northern Premier League in their Division One North and determined to move back, at least, to the top of the Non-League Pyramid.

In a wonderful three seasons ‘The New Chester’ have swept all before them and won the championships of The Northern Premier League Division One North, N.P.L. Premier Division and The Conference North. It is a wonderful reward for all at the club who will now be aiming at a return to The Football League.
