Chipstead 1sts - Congratulations to our superb management team of Fred, Chris and Stan and a fantastic group of players who completed the season with a cup double and a 3rd place in the league! What an achievement! The level of our performances just got better and better the longer the season went on, culminating in two outstanding results in the Sevenoaks Charity and Bill Manklow Inter-Regional Cup Finals. Quality, energy, pace and a never say die attitude - we had it all and finished with a 20 game unbeaten run. Well done everyone.
Many thanks also to our great supporters who turned out in force to cheer us on in our two finals and made themselves heard!
We hope to have a full squad at our Presentation Day (16th June) where we will have our two trophies on display. Let's hope for good weather and a great turn out to wrap up an excellent season for all our teams.
