Claret Chris Is Chelmsford’s City Slicker!

It’s a good time to be a Chelmsford supporter. Only one defeat since Christmas and the Clarets are flying in the Vanarama National League South.

The form of Chris Whelpdale has been a huge part of their success. The flying winger has been influential in his side’s rise to the top three.

Starting the month in style, Whelpdale bagged a brace in a resounding 4-1 won over Hungerford Town, taking home the man of the match award to boot.

A 1-0 win against East Thurrock United and a goalless draw with Gloucester City saw Whelpdale and his side finish the month unbeaten and only looking upwards.

Now can they bury a ghost of many years and finally earn promotion into the fifth tier?

Where next?

Dev And His Magpies Soar As He’s Named League's Top Boss After starting the month one point the wrong side of the dotted line, Alan Devonshire inspired his Maidenhead United side to three victories in as many games throughout February.
Watson’s The Big Winner As He Steadies York Ship Steve Watson’s start at York City was tricky to say the least – but things seem to be clicking for the ex-Gateshead boss at the minute, claiming the most wins of any National League North side in February.
