North West Counties League!!
Chester FC will be placed in the Vodkat League (formerly known as the North West Counties League) The FA have recommended that Chester be placed at Step 5 of the 'National League System', which, in reality, means that the Blues will be facing club's such as Runcorn Linnets, Bootle, Maine Road and Formby nest season. It's a blow to the hopes of many Chester fans who expected to be placed a step higher in what would have been the Evo-Stick (Unibond) League Division One. City Fans United press officer Jeff Banks said a “contributory factor” in the FA’s decision was because there are no vacancies in steps three and four – the UniBond Premier and First Division North and South. Chester FC CEO Steve Ashton commented “We are naturally disappointed with this decision, as we had hoped to be placed in a higher league. Regardless of this, the board remain focused and resolute in their objectives of building a successful football club for our City.“ Step 1 - Blue Square Bet Conference Step 2 - Blues Square Bet Conference North/South Step 3 - Evo-Stick Premier Division Step 4 - Evo-Stick Division One North/South Step 5 - Vodkat League Premier Division Step 6 - Vodkat League First Division
