In a statement released today, Chester City’s Supporters Trust have raised concerns over The Blues planned redevelopment of the Deva Stadium.

Trust spokesman Kevin Jones said: ‘Chester City Supporters’ Trust believes the establishment of a permanent training facility is key to taking the club forward.

‘Obviously, it is advantageous to have all teams training at one venue, as greater integration and centralisation will assist the manager.

‘It will also bring to an end the ‘nomadic’ like situation that has existed over the past few years. Probably more importantly for Chester City, it also presents an opportunity to create a community-based facility that can generate much needed revenue.

‘However, many supporters seem confused as to what the club’s int

ntions are.

‘Last week there was publicity surrounding the creation of a facility at Sealand, this week we learned of development of the Deva Stadium.

‘We are also eager to learn the reaction of the two local authorities on the Deva Stadium plan.’

A Trust spokesman added: ‘The most important thing is that we see professional footballers with professional facilities.

‘We hope a plan does come to fruition. Talk is one thing, delivery is the key.’
