Hereford FC’s Bank Holiday Monday match at Chester has been postponed as the Cheshire club continues to struggle with issues following storm damage at the stadium.

The National League have released the following statement regarding the Chester vs Hereford game that was scheduled to take place on Bank Holiday Monday.

“Due to the continuing issues affecting basic power supply and electronic safety equipment within the stadium at Chester FC, despite efforts to return the stadium to an operational and safe mode, in time for the Bank Holiday Monday fixture on 27th August versus Hereford FC in the Vanarama National League North, it has reluctantly been postponed to a date to be arranged.

“Consultation was taken throughout with regards to this decision with the local Safety Advisory Group, The National League and both Clubs along with a number of possible alternative arrangements being eventually discounted due to match management staffing, policing and safe stewarding levels which would have been necessary to stage this specific fixture elsewhere at short notice.”
