Earlier today, it was announced that James Hardy had joined Chester FC. Here’s what he had to say after joining the club.
Q: James, welcome to Chester. For supporters who aren’t familiar, tell us a bit about yourself!
A: I’m an attacking player. I can play out wide on either flank or behind the striker. I like to get on the ball and make things happen, and hopefully the fans here can enjoy that.
Q: You finished last season at Altrincham in the National League, how did you find that?
A: I’d played in that division with Fylde previous, obviously it is a good standard. It was nice to be able to carry on playing after this level got curtailed when I was with Telford. I enjoyed my time at Alty but things just didn’t work out and I’d been looking for a new club since.
Q: You were at Telford last term, a side we had two of our best performances against during 20/21! What are your memories of those games?
A: I remember them well, especially the match at our place. We got passed off the park to be fair. I know a couple of the lads here and I remember watching the football being played and thinking it would be decent to be a part of the team that day. We couldn’t get near them that day! I know the way the Managers want to try and play here and think it’ll suit me down to the ground.
Q: The new season is not far away now, what can we achieve this season?
A: We’ve all got to be aiming to go up this year. When last season got cancelled in January/February time, you were in with a great chance. So we will keep pushing for promotion this time around.
