BRAD JACKSON insists that promotion remains the goal for him and Chester - whenever football resumes.

The Blues remain in limbo with the National League still to decide whether or not the end of season play-offs are viable.

Chester have secured a place in the play-off positions, but even if the end of season lottery is deemed void, Jackson and his team-mates will be raring to go in the 2020/21 campaign.

“I am enjoying my football a lot. I’ve started every game I’ve been available for,” said Jackson on the Football CFB podcast.

“The main goal for me and for Chester is to get promoted out of the National League North.

“We were well on our way to do, it’s a bit annoying the season has come to a halt.

“We don’t know when we will be back, how we will be back or if we can get promoted this season, or we have to wait until next season.

“The goal for me and Chester is to get promoted.”

The winger also had a message to the fans, continuing: “My message would be to bear with it at the moment.

“All of the players are missing it just as much as the fans are.

“If we can finish off this season I can guarantee every single one of our players is going to be fit and ready to go.

“We will have a great chance of getting promoted if the season can be finished.”

And Jackson, signed from Ashton United, is relishing the prospect of returning to action in-front of the Blues loyal supporters, who he praised.

“Chester is the first club I’ve played for where you’ve played in-front of a big following, getting 1,500 fans a game plus as a minimum,” he said.

“There is a good atmosphere in home games and even away games - did we take 800 fans to Telford? Or was it more.

“They get behind us every game and are genuinely good people.”

Jackson won the club’s players’ player of the season award at the virtual awards night.

The 23-year-old said: “It’s a little bit strange doing the player of the year awards in my bedroom.

“It was definitely different to what anyone has done before, but it was nice to do it still.

“It was nice for people to get together and record it so the fans could see it.”
