History

Just after the turn of the last century in 1902, Chipperfield Football Club was formed, initially to play friendly games and are now in their Centenary season. Within 2 years this had become a more serious pastime and they joined the local West Herts League in 1904, which covers the Hemel Hempstead and Watford district.

In the late 1960s to early 70s the Club had a very successful period winning every thing in sight including the West Herts Premier League 7 times in succession. They joined the Herts County League in 1975.

Chipperfield Corinthians was formed in 1987 through the merger of Chipperfield and Tudor Corinthians. Tudor Corinthians could not reach Premier Division status due to the facilities at their council pitch in Croxley Green. Chipperfield were languishing in the bottom half of Division 2.

The merger was the best for all concerned and so it turned out to be in the first season. Winning Division 1, the Rickmansworth Charity Cup and also the Herts Intermediate Cup. At the beginning of the season a new Clubhouse was started. After a tremendous effort the Clubhouse was completed to coincide with promotion and ready for the first home game in the Premier Division.

In Season 1990/91, Chipperfield Corinthians won the Apsley Senior Cup. In Season 1992/3 it was 3rd time lucky in the Aubrey Cup Final with Chipperfield Corinthians beating local rivals Bovingdon, 2-0. In 1994/5 Chipperfield missed out on the league title by only 4 points, finishing 3rd. The season was finished off successfully by winning the St Mary’s Cup, beating Hemel Hempstead Town 1-0 in the final. In 1995/6 Chipperfield regained the Aubrey Cup after an exciting penalty shoot-out against Met Police. In season 1999/2000 Chipperfield won the Ricky Charity Cup and bounced back with promotion straight back to the Premier Division.

In recent seasons Chipperfield have had a Semi Final appearance in the Herts Centenary Trophy in 2002/3 and finished 6th in 2003/4. But two season’s at the wrong end of the table saw Chipperfield relegated to Division One in 2006. In 2006/07 Chipperfield just missed out on promotion finishing fourth but hope to go one better this season.
