At last! A game 15 mins from home. Good news. Remember the last game at Chester 30 or so years ago, if I remember rightly Big Dave Simmonds was at centre forward. Guess this will be mostly the kids, but good to see them here nontheless.

Would be appreciated Danny, XI games aren't usually well reported so anything is gratefully received mate.

Gordons LB, I remember that game too - but there was a much more recent one at the Diva Stadium in 1999-2000 when Peter Enkelman was in goal for Villa (and having an off day) when we scraped a lucky 1 0 win after being awful most of the game and being outplayed. Tony Daley was there too - he signed my programme at half time. Tommy Docherty's Villa first round League Cup game at Chester, was at Sealand Road 1968-9, with the league cup semi-final tussle a few years later.

My dogs' name is Chester. Thought it was a good name for a Labrador.

Burton is also a good name for a labrador, another preseason game, and like most labradors, it'll be friendly. Hope this helps...

Gents..wasn't the League Cup Semi Final in the 1974-75 season? I remember only being able to see half the pitch the Villa end was so rammed (another example of how Hillsborough could have happened earlier). I think we drew 2-2 (Bobby MacDonald and Ray Graydon?) then won the second leg 3-2 at Villa Park, and of course beat Norwich 1-0 in the final (Ray Graydon)..Pretty sure that is right, but memory does play tricks!
