Pre-Chipstead Old Boys FC

Originally there existed a Chevening FC, who were probably formed sometime before the 1st World War. The club played on the Recreation Ground from 1921/22, the land being leased to the Parish Council for sport and recreation by Sir Rowland Hodge of Chipstead Place.

One of the earliest photos shows the Chevening team of 1928/29

Back Row: Bill Hibbens (St. Johnís Ambulance), Stan Kidney, Lovell, George Scott, Carpenter, Hicks, ANO, Richardson, Bill Marsh (Secretary)
Front Row: Jim Peat (Committee member and local lamplighter), Harry Chapman, McKean, Howard Cowlard, Alf Quittenden, Bacon, Bob Maize, Frank Scott (Manager Ė who used to have the Boot & Shoe Repair shop in the village)

In those days, there were no proper changing facilities and teams used to have to get changed in a local pub (Bricklayers Arms) or in a farm/works outbuilding.
