Good afternoon and I welcome all Chester-le-Street ofﬁcials, supporters and players. I
hope you enjoy your visit, although not to much as we would like to continue where we left off
and get the three points.Newcastle Uni was a hard game but we showed
ﬁght and skill and deserved the points.Well done to our reserves beating Jarrow last
Saturday to reach the quarters ﬁnals of the Clem Smith Bowl. They won 5-3 after been down 2-0
after 10 minutes.On a sad note I have to report long serving board member Jimmy Cairns has decided tostep down. Jimmy has done numerous roles and helped ﬁnancially with sponsorship. He will be
sadly missed but will still support the club.Also Tony Harris has also stepped down. Tony
also helped ﬁnancially and brought in the incentives and brought new ideas to the club.
Tony will also continue to support the club.We would like to thank both lads for everything.In other news this week we will play Stockton Town in the FA Vase on the 14th September.A large crowd is expected so please come early. Prices will be the same so correct change appreciated at the gate.
We also looking for a couple of volunteers for match days so if anyone can help it will be
appreciated. Back to today’s game and may the best team win. Don’t forget Tuesday, where our visitors are Easington for the re-arranged match following the abandonment last month.
