CHESTER FC supporters trust City Fans United (CFU) took part in a Parliamentary lobby promoting fans’ greater involvement in football clubs.
Blues director David Evans joined football fans from across the UK at the event organised by Supporters Direct.
About 70 MPs, including Chester MP Stephen Mosley attended along with Secretaries of State and senior party officials.
Supporters Direct is calling for football fans to be given more say in the way the game and clubs are run following recommendations made by the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee.
It wants new measures brought in guaranteeing a structured relationship between supporters and clubs and also want the Government to make it easier for fans to own a stake in clubs.
Mr Evans said: “It was good to be part of an event packed with MPs from all parties supporting Supporters Direct.
“It was also great to be able to brief our own MP, Stephen Mosley, on the latest issues at the club. Stephen attended the event and spent half an hour afterwards taking a keen interest in Chester FC.”
Supporters Direct also used the event to launch a report demonstrating how sports stadia can be protected for the benefit of the community.
Mr Mosley said: “I was delighted to be able to attend the event, and it was a pleasure to welcome David to Parliament to represent Chester FC at this very important meeting.
“In Chester, we know of the importance of involving the community with the local football club, and we know all about the effects that some owners can have on the game we love.
“The select committee has made some very straightforward, but hugely important recommendations, and I was delighted to see so many MPs from across the country coming together in recognition of that fact.
“Chester FC is a model example of the benefits accrued from a strong supporter-club relationship, which others can take heart from. I will follow Supporters Direct’s campaign closely and offer my full support for what is an incredibly important cause.”
