Chester & District FA Youth Team ended a 27 year wait to win the Cheshire FA District Youth Cup on Saturday 15 July 2017 beating Crewe & District FA 4-2. The Cheshire FA District Youth Cup is open to the nine District FA's in Cheshire. It started in 1949 and Chester & District FA have previously won it in 1957 and 1990, but, missed out twice recent years in the final.

Crewe FA started the game the better of the two teams gaining an early goal after 7 minutes and Chester FA were unlucky to concede another goal on 23 minutes via a deflection off a Chester player. The 2-0 advantage to Crewe FA did not last long after the half-time break with Harley Bennion scoring after 55 minutes and adding another within 2 minutes to equal the scores. With Chester FA playing the better football and creating more chances an important third goal was scored by Edward Jones on 63 minutes before Harley completed his hat-trick on 74 minutes. The final whistle earned Chester FA a hard fought victory over a very competitive and skilful Crewe team whom were the previous holders, that the Chester side coached by Martin Dean were more than a match for.

This competition has resulted in a number of the Chester FA players being invited to the Cheshire FA County Youth Team trials.
