Chippenham Town Under 10 Whites secured a historic treble with a thrilling win against local rivals FC Chippenham at the league cup final held at the Conigre, home of Melksham Town FC.

CT Youth u10 Whites won the MWY&MFL Daniel Higgs Memorial Trophy 2-0 to add to their Fair Play Award Winners and the Green division title.

The final itself was a spectacular affair. Even as the rain attacked the pitch, the teams showed great skill and determination in pursuit of cup glory.

FC Chippenham proved to be a worthy adversary, especially in the first half, as they looked more likely to open the scoring with several close attempts at goal.

In the second half, Chippenham Town Youth really got going and their superb play through the wet conditions earned applause and adulation from their encouraging crowd, who had turned out in volumes.

The first goal came on the counter attack after FC Chippenham’s fourth consecutive corner. Dylan Hatt received the ball on the right and, under great pressure, played a wonderful ball down the line to Luis Nyman, who charged into the box and his sharp shot from an acute angle whistled into the lower left hand corner of the net.

The roof in the Melksham Town ground almost came off due to the massive shouts of joy from the fans.

Chippenham Town were now firmly in charge and solid defending from William Christopher and his reliable partner Jack House ensured that goalkeeper TJ Sett had little to concern him, although when called into action he was dependable as he has been all season.

Midfield dynamos Dan Billett and Dylan Hatt were as industrious and creative as ever and kept the team driving forward.

Oliver Wells in tandem with Man of the Match Dan Wright competed for every ball and limited FC to limited forays.

A superlative defence splitting pass from Daniel Wright sent Luis Nyman through on goal and he powerfully drilled in a second goal to great cheers from the now cheerful CT Youth fans.

Jacob Wilson and Harry Cook came on and continued the good work ensuring that FC did not earn a way back into the game although they did press right until the end never giving up.

A unique season for the Chippenham Town u10’s earning honours, friends and great joy throughout the season.
