Season 2013/14 preview: Chigwell Athletic


Having finished season 2012/13 strongly, everyone at Chigwell Athletic is focused on giving gaffer Richard Slater the ultimate prize - Premier Division football

Which competitions have you entered this season? MSFL Division 1, Peter Morrison Trophy, CA Cup

New signings: Steve Summers, Craig Sandford, Raanan Firmin, Hadley Silver, Ryan Cole, Elliot Bloom

Which of the signings excites you most? All are excellent additions both on and off the pitch and will add proven quality. Sandford and Summers returning after four years adds a nice touch to the squad

Have any players left? Richard Baum (retired) Alex Norman (Futsal) Anthony Mendel (reloacted)

What are your hopes for the season? To be challenging for the title plus some good cup runs, but enjoyment has always been the name of the game for us too. Entering our 13th season and the club's playing strength is probably stronger than ever which is massive achievement considering the average age of our squad, plus clubs constantly folding and merging

Which players would you describe as the 'ones to watch' and why? Too many to mention, plus i wouldn't single any of my players out

Which teams do you consider your strongest challengers? Brady B, Shirley Park

Captain: Paul Lenchner

Sponsor: Richman Junior, whom we thank for their continued support and now entering the fifth season.
Without this support the club probably wouldn't still be here

Home ground: Peter May Sports Centre

What will your team bring to the league this season? Old age!
