Chard referee Matt Bowditch, who is also a very active member of the Chard club received the Bell Trophy on behalf of the club when it was announced that Chard had been nominated as the most hospitable and welcoming club in the County by the referees themselves.
Meanwhile, the club are pleased to confirm that Jim Wagstaff will again be the head coach for the coming season and new chairman John Williams is very keen to bring in additional support to assist Jim.
A backs player/coach with proven ability at Western Counties level or better would be a welcome addition and anyone interested in taking on this role should initially make contact with the Chairman by email email@example.com
Chard are very keen to recruit more senior players at all levels to increase competition in all three senior teams so come along and join a very welcoming and ambitious club.
The club grounds team have already been very active since the end of the season and a lot of maintenance work has already been carried out on the main pitch as well as the two pitches at Crewkerne Road.
Plans are also now well advanced to improve the lights at the Crewkerne Road ground which will give the club more options and hopefully help to reduce the wear and tear on the main ground.
