Legendary chester fc goalkeeper shows business leaders how our city’s footballing fortunes are in safe hands

Legendary Chester FC goalie Dennis Reeves showed business leaders the future of the city’s football team is in safe hands.

The 79-year-old Scot joined a party of guests from the Chester Business Club to  watch the Seals beat Scarborough.

Dennis, who played 139 times for the Blues, was also joined by Mark Tanner, the Bishop of Chester at the game on Saturday Feb 10.

And the Gods were smiling on Calum McIntyre’s team as they ran out 3-0 winners.

Jan Chillery, the chair of Chester Business Club (CBC), said “It was great to see Chester FC win in such a style. The team is a credit to the city, and we will be cheering them on in the hope they can win promotion.”

Explaining the growing relationship between the CBC and Chester FC, Ms Chillery continued: “The football club is an integral part of our city, which means a lot to so many people and the CBC is in full support of the work they are doing both on and off the pitch.

“We are making it an annual tradition to bring a party of members and guests to CFC for lunch in the Legend’s Lounge. We were lucky to have premium seats in the directors’ area to see such a great win. And it was super special to have a genuine Blues legend with us in Dennis for the day. To hear such great stories from Dennis over lunch made it a day to remember.

Also in attendance was Will Lamb, a Director at Chester FC, Bob Ellis formerly of Meadow Foods, James Brown of Savitas, Rosalind Ellis who serves on the CBC Executive Committee, Ian Cooper and Trevor Dollemore

Ms Chillery added: “I was proud to present guests Bishop Mark Tanner and Lindsey Tanner with Chester FC scarves.  We had great fun and even enjoyed a bit of  friendly pre-match chat and banter with directors from Scarborough Athletic who joined us for a picture.

“I’m really looking forward to our next visit to Chester FC and hope we see the same success from the Blues again. The CBC wishes the team the very best for the rest of the season.”
