    Chesterfield in a Sweat

    There was a time not so long ago that i would not relish playing them because they would invariably turn us over.

    Now their league status is hanging by a thread,hope they manage to avoid the trap door into non-league oblivion.

    But if they do go down,they can always do a Doncaster and come back stronger but its not a certainty.

    Was chatting with a mate of mine this very morning about them (he's a mad Spireite), and he reckons it was all over at Christmas. Its pretty sad really, they won promotion and at Wembley only four years ago, and now its just a big mess. Jack Lester was brought in as a 'popular' choice, but the damage was already done, and he hasn't been able to make a difference. Lots of decent League teams in the NL nowadays, like Orient, Tranmere, Hartlepool, Wrexham. It won't be easy to get back up again, but I wish them well.

    When they played us under Paul Cook and both clubs finished in the play offs, they had some decent players and they passed the ball pretty well. Game ended 1-1 draw and we played Swindon in the POs and they played Preston (who were favourites to go up, and did do)

    Their line-up that day included : Morsey Clucas, Darikwa and O'Shea.

    All sold and now relying on loanees, kids and a certain Chris O'Grady.

    On the brink of non-league oblivion.

    I remember the Old Saltergate Ground, we always used to take thousands of ticketless pay on the gate fans who went on their end because the away end was packed solid,

    Games included a league cup 1st round game when Ernie Moss scored the winner for them, A great servant he was to Chezzy and a player of his ability back then wouldn't look out of place today in the Championship.

    There was also the game, I think it was new years day when Mike Watterson was our chairman and we had Viv Busby up front and I think they turned us over that day too.

    Best memory though was when we played them in an Anglo - Scottish Cup pre season tournament on a Summers night which was remembered for an old Blade called DINKY who decided from the terracing that the blades front 2 needed some assistance literally.

    On to the pitch jumped Dinky and he even nodded on a goal kick to the winger for the Blades at the time,

    The game actually carried on for a few seconds though this seemed like an age until the Chezzy back 4 realised the difference between a Blades shirt and Dinky's blue and green Sergio Tacchini.

    This then introduced 2 gentlemen from the local constabulary who duly dragged Dinky off the pitch, one on each arm,

    I will never forget the resistance Dinky put up as the Coppers dragged him off and throughout the rest of the game you could see Dinky's legacy of 2 parallel tractor type marks on the Saltergate Pitch from the penalty spot to the toucline.

    Great Memories - Whatever happened to old Dinky ? - Similar looking to Jesus Christ he was !!

    Was one of his party pieces dropping his trolleys in a packed pub?

    I’m sure I have seen him either this season or last in one of the pubs near the Lane

    Its Ashley Carson, late of the rusty bucket who is catching hell for Chessies situation. Dave owns the club but isn't on the board. He's taken his ball home over the shenanigans two years ago. (now, there was a boardroom battle...)

    Yes Carson is the current incumbent FKB but I think most Chessy fans lay the blame at Davey boy for starting the decline, Carson is Chessy’s very own Strappy.

    It's certainly isn't a certainty it's much harder to get back these days the league is littered with bigger clubs than chezzy who have tried and are still trying in fact a fair few have fallen further,Torquay are currently stood over the trap door and look like falling through,it wouldn't surprise me if chezzy went the same way as them and York and fell further

    Chester are heading for the wilderness of National League North too. I just took a look and the list of familiar names at that level is surprising. All former league clubs in my lifetime...Kidderminster, Stockport, York, Bradford PA, Boston, Darlington, Southport, and in NL South, no former FL teams. Another North/South divide...?

    I did it last week FKB and noticed the same although I suspect Torquay may start in that division next yr

    A member of my family plays for Gainsborough Trinity, he left Boston in January and was released by the Pork at 20.

    He can’t believe how good the quality is in NLN and the number as ex league players in there.

    I suppose it's the knock on effect of all the foreigners in the top league gray the rest filter down the leagues improving them,the downside is we have less homegrown player playing at the top level which shows up in the national team
