There've been more ups than downs following Chester in recent years, but I never thought I'd be standing in a leafy ground on the edge of a Gloucestershire hillside when it felt like it was all coming to an end.
The match at Forest Green Rovers had been one of my most eagerly-awaited fixtures, but as I drove into nearby Stroud less than three hours before kick-off I learned I wouldn't be seeing Chester make their debut at the New Lawn.
It was like a typical matchday - royal blue Chester scarf around my neck, Exiles banner in my bag and camera at the ready in case of an unmissable photo opportunity.
