CHIPSTEAD FC ON TV !!!!



Remember to watch/record Soccer AM (Sky Sports) on Saturday morning, 13th May, as you might just recognise some of the people in the background wearing Chipstead kit (some of our Chipstead U12s).   “Chippy” will be going too but we aren't sure if he will be allowed to take part ! 

******************************************************************************************


Please see the link below - Our U14 Falcons Coach is running "10 Marathons in 10 Days" next week in aid of the Brathay Trust Children's Charity
If anyone is able to sponsor him and help him reach his target I am sure it will be much appreciated !
 
I have a few days left before I run the Brathay ‘10 in 10’ from the 12th May to the 22nd of May. This will be 10 marathons (26.2 miles) over ten consecutive days around Lake Windermere.
I have run over 170 marathons and often done two in a week or even two over a weekend but never 10 in 10 days so it is a step into the unknown.

I am doing this to raise money for the Brathay Trust and the excellent work they do to improve the lives of vulnerable children and young people in the UK.
If there is anything you can spare to help support both me and the Brathay Trust it would be massively appreciated.

Chipstead U17s "Complete the Double" !

The Chipstead U17s who were new to the Mid Sussex Youth Football League this season have finished as Division Two League Winners (with one match to go) on 40 points and lifted the U17 League Cup Trophy beating two Division One teams in the semi-final and final.

The Cup Final was held on neutral ground at Oakwood FC, Crawley on 20 April with Shoreham & Adur being the other finalists.

Chipstead went 1-0 up through a great effort from Omar Farid in the first 10 minutes but Shoreham equalised not long after.  Tan Rabe then put them 2-1 up before half time with a smoothly taken penalty.

With 2 goals in the second half from Tom Davies, including a long-range chip over the Goalkeeper from outside the 18 yard box, this secured the 4-1 victory over their Division One opponents.

The U17s have had a great season coached by Gian Marco de Sisto assisted by Lewis Riches and Paul Watson and become the first Chipstead team to complete a league and cup double for a number of years.  A special thank you should also go to Daniel O’Connell and Rich Silva for sponsoring and supporting the team.

Congratulations to all the squad for working hard in training to show that your efforts really do all pay off in the end!

Alan Black (Chairman) with U17 Coach, Gian Marco & the U17 Sussex Cup Final Trophy
