JOHN DANBY is to be inducted into Chester's Hall of Fame.

Goalkeeper Danby played nearly 300 games for both versions of the Blues, breaking a number of club records along the way.

Having signed from Kidderminster Harriers in 2006, Danby went onto break Mike Metcalf's 40-year record of 128 for the most consecutive appearances for the Blues, extending that number to 133.

Danby, voted the club's player of the season in 2006/07, left the Blues when the club folded, only to return under Neil Young as Chester climbed the non-league pyramid.

The stopper won back-to-back titles with the club, setting a record of eight games for the most consecutive clean sheets, an achievement that helped him win non-league Goalkeeper of the Year.

Chair of the Former Players Association Alan Tarbuck said: "John has a fantastic record at Chester – it isn’t just the number of games, it’s the quality of his performances as well.

"He is an outstanding goalkeeper and a great professional, and we were lucky to have him representing Chester. He played a big part in the new venture of Chester FC and I would like to congratulate him, on behalf of all the former players, on being elected to the Hall of Fame."

Danby is the 24th member of Chester's Hall of Fame, joining Grenville Millington, Gary Talbot, Daryl Clare, Peter Jackson, Stuart Rimmer, Trevor Storton, Derek Draper, Iain Jenkins, Mike Metcalf, Elfed Morris, Ken Roberts, George Horan, Michael Wilde, Ronnie Hughes, Milton Graham, Harry McNally, Graham Barrow, Neil Young, Graham Abel, Ray Gill, Jimmy Humes, Hugh Ryden, and Andy Holden.
