Circumstances caused me to miss Fridays meeting, here's a report from NFBF...

Good to see a full house in the Blues Bar for the September Senior Blues Members Meeting. The Chairman David Harrington Wright spoke to say how pleased he was with the progress the club was making on and off the field. There are plans to update and freshen up the Blues Bar. We then had a Quiz which was very successful and proved popular with the members, with even a bit of controversy as to whether there were 5 or 6 cinemas in Chester in 1958.

Joint manager Bernard Morley spoke and took questions from members. He said they were very disappointed by refereeing decisions against Spennymoor but was delighted with the way the team bounced back on Monday. He was asked about whether full back Taylor would be better playing on the wing, but Bernie said they, and he, thought he was better, and more effective playing at full back. He was asked about how pleased he was to have a "glut of strikers", Bernard replied that a big squad was very important this season.

Calum Macintyre then brought his whole squad of academy players into the room and Dr Les Smith interviewed four of them. It's quite clear Calum is as passionate as ever about his squad and thanked members for their support with the Senior Blues Youth Foundation.

____________________________

3mm postscript: Going back to the question - were there 5 or 6 cinemas in Chester in 1958, the answer is: it depends whether you include Saltney. In 1958 there were 1: The Regal (ABC) 2: The Tatler (Classic) 3: The Odeon 4: Music Hall 5: Gaumont (now Mecca Bingo) 6: Park, St. Marks Road Saltney

The Majestic just misses, it closed 29th September 1956.
