There is evidence that a team from Chester played a game against New Brighton at the end of the 19th century, and that club confirms that such a match appears in their records during the season 1879/80. However no reference has been found to a Chester Rugby Club prior to 1925 when it would appear that Chester RUFC was formed in October of that year.
In the last full season of fixtures, 2019/20, Chester won both fixtures 26-14 at home and 14-19 at Wharfedale. This season Chester have had a moderately good season winning 5 out of 9 played so far.
The travelling faithful did their best last week to keep the Greens going; it was great to see that Dale made up c50% of the attendance. We need a full house on Saturday to take on the challenge of Chester and kick-start a positive run in to Christmas.
Kick off 2pm
