Player Retirements

2 months ago By Chadlington Sports Club

Following a successful season 3 Chadlington regulars announce that they are due to retire...

Andy Wiffen
Age: 42
Appearances: 109
Goals: 3

Andy joined Chadlington during the end of the 2012/13 season from senior league side Enstone. He made 5 appearances for the Reserves before stepping into the First Team for 3 seasons in the Premier Division and Division One making 66 appearances and scoring 3 goals. For the 2016/17 season Andy moved back into the Reserves and over two seasons made a further 38 appearances, 24 as captain.
Andy has been a fully committed player for Chadlington, giving is all every week. He has always been full of energy and loves a maraud down the left wing, sometimes to the horror of his fellow defenders . Many a left midfielder has had to provide emergency cover at full back.
Andy now steps into semi-retirement to give younger players a chance and to spend more time fishing and playing veterans football.


Graham Harrison
Age: 51
Appearances: 68
Goals: 4

Graham joined Chadlington in the 2012/13 season helping to reestablish the newly reformed Reserve side in Division Four of the Witney & District. As coach of the eldest of Chadlingtons youth sides, Graham helped bring many young players into the side over the next few seasons.
Graham had called time on his career in mid 2015 due to injury but was recalled in January 2017 and gave the side a much needed boost in a faltering season.
Graham provided a rock in the center of midfield for Chad and allowed other players to work off him, giving them the protection to learn and develop.
Hanging up his boots Graham can be sure that he was provided a stable platform for the young players to build on and it is hoped that he will continue to provide his experience from the sidelines.


Craig Harris
Age: 26
Appearances: 76

Craig joined Chadlington Reserves in 2014/15 season from Charlbury Reserves and although he joined as an outfield player it was his skill as a goalkeeper that was soon in demand. Goalkeepers are a rare breed and in Reserve Team football it can be a thankless task. Craig always approached the game with a positive outlook and can reflect on many fine saves over the past 4 seasons. In particular he has developed a specialty in saving penalties, often keeping Chadlington in games and securing vital points.
At 26 Craig is too young to fully retire and it is hoped that he dusts off his boots again in the future for Chadlington.
