"Steve Burr had a dream, to build a football team"
Help us raise £20,000 ahead of the 2015/16 Vanarama National League campaign.
We've all heard the terrace chant, we've all probably sang the terrace chant - but now let's all come together as fans united to help Steve Burr build a football team!
This project has been set up to raise money for Steve Burr and Jon McCarthy to strengthen the playing squad before the start of the 2015/16 season. The project has taken inspiration from Grimsby Town and Lincoln City who have run similar and succesful campaigns this pre-season.
Your one-off donation goes straight into Steve Burr's transfer kitty, which will give the Blues gaffer the chance to add to his playing squad before the end of the 2015 Summer Transfer Window.
About Chester Football Club
Chester Football Club are a fan-owned football club in the Vanarama National League - the fifth tier of English football. Since our reformation in 2010, the club embarked on a stunning journey to the Conference, with three back-to-back promotions in the three seasons. The club is 100% fan owned, and relies heavily on the sterling work of the club's valued volunteers.
With Steve Burr at the helm, the Blues finished 12th in the Conference last season, a season which also saw the club embark on a run to the FA Cup Second Round.

Speaking on the Crowdfunder appeal
Jon McCarthy, Blues Assistant Manager and CEO of the Club’s Community Trust said: “We recognise how much our supporters already contribute to allow us to put a team out on the pitch that can compete at this level. We will never take that for granted.
“It is your city, your community, your club. If you have £1, or £20 or £100 to contribute it will all go towards the team that you see playing on your pitch each week. We don’t want to put a minimum or maximum donation out there, we want it to be something inclusive for every person in our Community.
“Myself, the gaffer and the players new and old all thank you for your amazing support already, and that it is a privilege to wear your shirt. Together everyone achieves more.”
