Chester’s next game is on Monday at Macclesfield, where the old club once spent two years in exile after their former Sealand Road home was sold for redevelopment and they waited for work to start on their replacement 6,000 capacity home on nearby Bumpers Lane

For BBC Radio Merseyside’s Neil Turner, who has been covering their fortunes for more than 30 years, it will mark the milestone of his 1,500th game.

He has covered everything for the station – from Liverpool in the Charity Shield, to Everton v Sheffield Wednesday on the first day of the Premier League in 1992, and Tranmere’s 1-0 win over Exeter City to stay in the Football League in 1987. He has even read the classified results a few times on Final Score.

But, as more than 1,000 of those games have involved watching Chester, it seems appropriate that his landmark match will be at Chester’s former home ground at Moss Rose.
