Football Consultant

Ewan Chester rejoined Blues as the Club's Football Consultant in June 2016, with his primary role to help enhance the talent identification and recruitment process.

Chester, who brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and contacts to the Wast Hills set-up.

Chester was Blues Chief Scout between September 2011 - June 2012 and decided to leave his most recent job working for Chris Hughton at Brighton & Hove Albion to join Blues again.

Chester originally joined Blues from Norwich City and he has had spells at Oldham, Livingstone, Fulham and the Canaries again under Hughton, as Director Of Football Recruitment.

But it was in two stints at Glasgow Rangers (1987 - 2004 and 2007 - 2010), including the key spells of Walter Smith and Alex McLeish as manager, where he really made his name, helping the Ibrox club win 35 trophies.

The Scot's playing career encompassed lower league clubs like Workington and Morton in the 1970s before he decided to go down the coaching and scouting route after retiring in his 30s.
