Marcus Bignot admits there could be further key first-team departures from Chester this week.

The Blues boss has accepted the fact he could lose more players given the club’s dire financial situation, needing to cut costs to avoid going out of business, with fans having already raised over £45,000 for the cause.

Tom Shaw, Alex Lynch, Reece Hall-Johnson and John McCombe have already left, while Telford United and Southport have both made enquiries over Chester players.

“I’ve been in conversation with other clubs’ managers this week,” revealed Bignot. “Managers from three other clubs and obviously John McCombe has gone.

“There was a possibility we could have lost two more before this game, so look, we go into work next week with the squad we have and we will see what arises from the situation we’re in.”
