Bridging The Gap – Chipperfield Corinnthians FC

1st of December 2014

For over a century men’s football has been played at Queen Street, the home of Chipperfield Corinthians F.C. For the last two seasons a new and exciting generation of young local footballers has also had the opportunity to use the outstanding pitch. Collaboration between the senior club and the youth teams has never been stronger, giving more opportunity for the village children and youths to stay local to play football.

The youth football club now has thriving teams at U7, U8, U9 and U12 and, hopefully, will continue to build as time moves on, but at this point we must not forget the importance of the men’s team and the value it brings to the local community. Running two senior teams, a 1st team and a reserves for the up and coming young players, comes at a cost. Facilities such as the clubhouse, changing rooms, the upkeep of the pitch, all cost money but without these teams more and more local children and young adults would have to look elsewhere to play their football.

There is no better time to support your local football club and see the benefits for children and adults in using the same facility. The 1st team and reserves play their matches regularly on Saturday afternoons and the youth teams on Sunday mornings.

The tireless efforts of a small group of people allow such activities to thrive. Without support from the local community and businesses it is likely that the club will hit difficult times. So please support the club in any way you can, whether by watching football matches, attending club fundraising events or sponsorship, i.e. in the match programme, a match ball or boarding around the pitch; everything and everyone is welcome.

The season to date has seen the first team have mixed results, positioned mid-table but with expectations of improvement as the Christmas period arrives. The reserves sit comfortably in the top half of their table and look likely to push on and challenge the league leaders.

In the youth teams, the U11 teams currently play non-competitive mini football, but exciting players. The U12s are in the first season of competitive football and are competing well in their league. Chipperfield has lots of children, youths, and young adults of different abilities who are enthusiastic about many different sports, including football, and so to have such fantastic football facilities here within the village, locals need look no further a field to benefit from playing regular football.
