Chester have thanked their supporters for their “exemplary behaviour” after their derby game against Wrexham

The club released a statement on their website, and expressed their hopes that the good behaviour could lead to the lifting of the bubble restrictions imposed by local police.chester

The statement read “The CFU Board would like to take the opportunity to thank fans for their exemplary behaviour at the Cross-Border Derby game on Saturday against Wrexham.

“We hope it is another step towards the removal of the bubble restrictions we currently have.

“The Board have also been made aware of some concerns among supporters who attended the Wrexham game with regards to the ban on the sale of alcohol.

“At last year’s fixture there was damage caused to Wrexham’s stadium by some Chester fans which cost our club a significant amount of money. At a subsequent CFU meeting members felt that the sale of alcohol at the ground was a contributory factor.

“This was discussed and agreed with Safety Advisory Group as it was felt that the non-sale of alcohol would represent a reciprocal arrangement between the clubs.

“Once again, we would like to thank supporters for their terrific following and behaviour at the weekend.
