There is still plenty of hard work to do but Chester FC can breath a little easier. Rewind a month and the shell-shocked Blues fan base was coming to terms with the revelation that their club needed to find £50,000 to survive. But fast forward four weeks and Chester's financial outlook is looking a lot healthier thanks to a fantastic fundraising effort. More than £80,000 has been raised already and that means fears over the club folding before the season is out have been allayed.
Chester FC manager Marcus Bignot believes 'mismanagement at the top level' is the reason why National League clubs have run into financial difficulty this season. Hartlepool United and Dagenham & Redbridge both face a desperate fight to survive while Chester themselves have only staved off the threat of going bust thanks to a fantastic fundraising effort from supporters.
There is no doubt that recent events at Chester FC have done much to galvanise the fan base. That is best reflected in the fact that supporters have raised more than £85,000 to keep the Blues alive. Now, with the club's finances on a more secure footing, the concentration turns back to keeping the team in the National League. Tuesday's 1-0 home loss to Leyton Orient means Chester will head to troubled Dagenham & Redbridge tomorrow six points from safety.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
