One Exile's view on the bubble

This Saturday, at 12.15pm, the Blues will face Wrexham in what is our seventh match against the Goats as Chester FC. Disappointingly, the fixture was again designated as a Category C match by Her Majesty’s Police, meaning Chester fans travelling to the Racecourse will have to endure the bubble for the fourth season in a row.

As published by the Chronicle, there are more police for this 90 minute match than there are for the whole of a three-day Chester Races programme in May. Indeed, there was one policeman for every 23 fans at the home derby in 2015.

So how has this happened?
