There has been an exodus at struggling Chester FC over the past day or so, with City Fans United chairman Simon Olorenshaw, director Mark Howell, and now former Blues boss Neil Young, who had been working in an advisory role, all departing.
It was announced just a few days ago that the club’s manager Marcus Bignot would be leaving the Vanarama National League side upon the expiry of his contract at the season’s end. It has been continual struggle for ex-Grimsby Town boss Bignot since his arrival earlier in the campaign, with the Blues’ off-field turmoil coming to light.
He had brought the club’s highly successful former manager Neil Young in to help out, but he has now stepped away from his advisory role. Along with chairman Simon Olorenshaw, director Mark Howell is also leaving, and he tweeted last night (Monday):
‘Despite a deep love for my club, after a weekend of reading some frankly awful lies about a good friend and colleague, I decided to resign my role on the @CityFansUnited board at lunchtime today. Going back again was a big mistake. I wish the board all the best of luck. #uts’
