1874 Northwich FC host Chester FC

1874 Northwich FC v Chester FC
Supporters Direct Shield – Tuesday 23 July 2019 KO 7.45pm

1874 Northwich is delighted to be hosting Chester, both wholly owned by their supporters, on Tuesday 23 July. The game will take place at our new home – The Offside Trust Stadium, Townfield, Barnton, Northwich and it is being supported by the Football Supporters’ Association. The teams will play for the Supporters Direct Shield.

1874 was formed on 15 November 2012, following a vote of Trust members to form its own supporter owned club and we began life in the North West Counties Division One in August 2013. Promotion followed at the end of the first season, to the NWCFL Premier League where we remain. Vanarama League side Chester Football Club was officially reborn on 21 May 2010, from the ashes of the old club. They joined the Evostik Division One North, and thanks to their supporters rallying in huge numbers, the club went from strength to strength earning three successive promotions.

Both clubs have their supporters, and their communities, at the very heart of everything they do. 1874 and Chester were kindly assisted by ‘Supporters Direct’ when they were setting up and both have continued to enjoy a strong relationship with the organisation since. In 1874’s case, we were supported by the very wonderful Jacqui Forster, who remained by our side until her sad passing. It is therefore an honour for both to have been invited to play for the SD Shield.

The Football Supporters’ Association

Last year members of Supporters Direct and the Football Supporters’ Federation met at a special conference to merge the organisations into what is now the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA).

The FSA continues to battle for supporter ownership, and back events such as the SD Shield, while also campaigning across a range of fields relating to ticket prices, fan legal rights, and more.

“We hope you all have a great day and are lucky enough to see an entertaining game at this year’s SD Shield.”

Tom Greatrex – VC of Football Supporters’ Association

James Blair

1874 Northwich are delighted to announce the signing of former Mossley right back James Blair. Speaking at training last week with Club Media Officer Matt Waters, Blair revealed he was thrilled to sign for the club. He said, “After an absence from football, 1874 is the perfect place for me to get back into the game. I know a couple of the lads and they only have positive things to say about the club, so I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Blair, who is an experienced player at this level, believes he can add to the winning mentality of the side. He added, “As much as we want to play attractive football, we know that we won’t always be able to do that and I feel I can help us grind out some results and keep a level head.”

After playing in the Evo Stik before, Blair revealed he wanted to make a quick return, but this time with 1874. He said, “Our aim for this season has to be challenging for the league title. We’ve got a good squad and anything less for me wouldn’t be good enough.”

When asked what the fans can expect from him over the coming seasons, Blair responded by saying, “They can expect me to use my experience to help us win games. I’ll put in 100% each and every game to help the side win as many games as we can and always keep a level head.”

Nathan Okome signs

1874 are pleased to announce the signing of versatile footballer Nathan Okome from
Knutsford Town. Last Week, Club Media Officer Matt Waters caught up with Nathan at
training.

When asked what made him sign for the club he said, “Over the last couple years I’ve played
against the club a few times and I like the style of play, I feel like it suits me and I’m looking
forward to getting started.”

Okome, who spent most of his youth career playing in defence and holding midfield revealed
he’s looking forward to making the step up from Knutsford to 1874. He said, “After being out
injured for a number of years and getting back into football at Knutsford, I feel like it’s time
for a new challenge and I’m looking forward to playing for 1874.”

Spending most of his youth career in academy football, Nathan believed this experience will
be vital for his future. He commented, “Playing my first few seasons in men’s football was so
important. Knutsford was a good standard and I wasn’t too sure where I’d fit in but I feel I’ve
benefited a lot playing first-team football. I hope I can keep it going here and help bring
success to the club.”

Harry Cain joins 1874

1874 are thrilled to announce the signing of winger Harry Cain, who finished last season at Sandbach United. At training last week, Club Media Officer Matt Waters caught up with Harry.


When asked what made him join 1874, the former Nantwich Town winger Cain said, “After last year being a write off with injury, I want to get a good season of football under my belt at a club like 1874.”


At training on Thursday, Cain revealed that he would bring pace and goals to the team. He stated, “I want to add plenty of assists and at least 15-20 goals to the side for the coming season to help us do as well as we can.”


Cain, who featured for Sandbach United in the First Division Challenge Cup Final, believed that promotion has to be the main priority for the season. He added, “It has to be our focus, 3 teams go up this season and we have to be one of them.”


After suffering from various injuries over the last season, Cain believes it’s important for him to have some stability in his career. He said, “I’m only young and I want to play as high I as I can, but I’m looking forward to committing myself over the next couple of seasons with 1874.”

Taylor ties down deal for the new season

1874 were delighted to announce earlier today that fan favourite Taylor Kennerley has extended his contract for the 2019/20 season. On Thursday, Club Media Officer Matt Waters caught up with Taylor at training.

After scoring 15 goals in last season’s campaign, Taylor revealed he had no interest in leaving 1874 this season, “I love the club and the fans seem to enjoy me being here. As long as I’m getting regular football then I’m happy to stay.”

Looking ahead to the new season, Taylor said, “Promotion has to be the aim for this season. It’s 3 up next season and we’ve got to be right up there. That being said we want to have a good cup run this year after going out of the Vase so early last season.”

When asked if there was interest from higher leagues in Taylor’s services, he admitted, “There was, but why would I go to sit on a bench when I can play first team football here and enjoy it. I want to prove myself at this level and take the club as far as we can go.”

With the club due to play its first season in Northwich, Taylor believed it’s an exciting time for the club, “It’s great playing in your local town with people knowing you. As a team we like to play football and at times that has been difficult over the last few years but we feel Barnton will suit us a lot better.”

1874 co manager Wayne Goodison was delighted that Taylor has committed his future to the club. He said, “He’s developed immensely over the last two seasons and he has the capability to get even better if continues to work hard at his game. He knows how much we think of him as a person and a player. Bow and I are delighted that he’s extended his contract with us.”
