Vodkat Premier club Stone Dominoes manager Shaun Hollinshead is looking forward to facing Chester next season. Stone Dominoes manager Shaun Hollinshead is smacking his lips at the prospect of taking on reformed Chester FC. Hollinshead steered Dominoes to promotion from Vodkat Division One last season, while Chester were expelled from the Blue Square Premier and wound up over unpaid taxes. Chester have been relaunched by supporters under the banner of City Fans United and the FA have recommended they play in the Vodkat Premier Division. At present they have no manager and no players, but Hollinshead said: "I can't wait. Let's hope the fixture is as big as we think it will be. "Chester have a lot of history and I first came across them when I was a player with Crewe. To think they have come down to our level is a massive shock. I never imagined they would tumble that far." Dominoes, along with Alsager Town and Congleton Town, can look forward to a trip to the Deva Stadium, where Chester were playing League Two football only two years ago. Chester will be up for election at the Vodkat League annual meeting on June 19 and a league spokesman warned: "Any pronouncements or assumptions about Chester FC are premature." Hollinshead said: "They will definitely get our vote and I would imagine the majority of clubs would welcome them."
