Chesterton football club

We hope all the village residents have kept safe and well during the pandemic. During the lockdown period the remaining league programme was cancelled. It was decided by the Stroud league that each team would finish in their respective league positions meaning we became league champions and will now play in Stroud Division 1 next season. A great achievement for the club.

Although grounded like the rest of the country, we have been busy behind the scenes preparing for the upcoming season. We have recently been awarded £2,500 to improve the playing surface at the playing field. We are using Prestige Groundworks who will be carrying out some works over the next few weeks including fertilisation, verti-drain and re-seeding of the playing surface.

We hope that the results will be seen over the next few weeks. We have also roughly marked a youth playing/training area that will be beneficial for the youths of the village. We are hoping to set up some youth goals which we will be putting up in the near future.

The clubhouse has had a major overhaul with new paint and other bits and bobs to make the facility user friendly for anybody to use. We have built a new planting area and rockery and if anyone would like to plant any plant, please feel free. We will be clearing the surplus debris around the outside of the clubhouse in due course so please bear with us.

Training has now recommenced at the playing field on Thursday evenings at 6.30pm with strict guidelines from the Football Association. If anyone would be interested in joining the club, please feel free to pop along although it would be beneficial to know beforehand due to the government guidelines on training in groups.

If any resident would like to contact the club with any questions, please email .
