Charscot equalled an all time club record this week as they completed their 15th game without defeat (with their 100th home league win in their history). The 2-0 win over Steaua Charlton, courtesy of goals from Ronaldo and Alen Skoro, was more one sided than the scoreline shows as the Wolverines ran riot against their outclassed opponents.

Off the pitch manager Rich Grove announced that striker Anthony Le Tallec was being exchanged with Vanbrugh Royals striker Des Blackman, with the deal to be concluded at the beginning of next month. It is understood that Rich Grove was looking for a fresh face to score the sort of totals that Ronaldo and Skoro (ironically) seem to be managing with ease.

With the cup semi for the next game this is seen by some as a risk though the manager would not be drawn on what difference, if any this selection choice may make.

Having successfully eased John O’Shea in for his debut this week it is understood that more players could be given a chance now a top 3 place seems assured…


Charscot this week scraped past Comberton with a 1-0 away win. The goal in the first minute from defender Darren Stone was enough to maintain third spot despite a nervous second half. With fourth placed The Space Cadets losing the Wolverines now have a five point lead over them and look good for a top three position with only four games left .

Off the field the news was not so good as defender Wes Brown broke a toe in training and will now miss the next three league games and the Cup Semi-final against Dep El Celtico. He is expected to make a recovery in time for the Final, if Charscot win.


Another blown lead killed the slim title hopes of Charscot today as they could only draw 3-3 at home to Lammermuir Fc.

In a sense of deja vu the same players scored as last week with Richard Mason, Ronaldo And Lee Dukes each scoring.

However, the late equaliser left manager Rich Grove considering making major changes as he experiments in preparation for next season. This could prove risky as the team is still fighting for a top three spot...

24/11/03 With less than 40 minutes to go this week Charscot found themselves trailing relegation favourites The Academy by two goals, including a Ulrik Laursen own goal. In their best comeback in their history goals from Richard Mason (his first for the club), Ronaldo and Lee Dukes turned this match on it's head and with no one else winning in the top four Charscot moved into third place.

A mixed week this week. In the League the title ambitions are now dead following another blown lead, this week against Plzen. After racing into a two goal lead by half time courtesy of a double from Anthony Le Tallec for the third game in four the team failed to capitalise as a late 85th minute goal guaranteed another season waiting to achieve top spot.

The only saving grace were the draws for The Space Cadets and Barnstoneworth, which leave Charscot with an outside chance of runners up spot and a realistic shot of equalling last season's third place.

Meanwhile in the Cup Quarter Final Charscot gained revenge for a second round loss 8 years ago as they overcame Callie Athletic 1-0. The only goal was scored by Ronaldo, who continues to achieve records..this time scoring in his fourth consecutive match, equalling a club mark held by Ian Atkins for a decade.


After consecutive draws Charscot got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win at The Richmond Republic. Despite the scoreline this was actually a one sided victory for the away team and they really should have had more to show for their efforts than a goal from Ronaldo in his 150th full appearance for the club.

The result had little effect at the top as the top 3 all won and it seems likely that there are just not going to be enough games for the Wolverines to make up the gap.


In the space of 7 days Charscot have dropped four points to Jon Sykes' run teams with last minute equalisers to destroy any title aspirations. If the two games gad finished a minute earlier Charscot would be top of the league... instead they are fourth and four points adrift with 9 to go.

Manager Rich Grove only spoke briefly after the game, enquiring as to Jon Sykes' lottery numbers for Wednesday as it seemed like a guaranteed winner !

Already the manager is now looking towards next season to see what he needs to do o make that final jump from top four to top. In weeks to come some more dealings in the transfer market seem likely to supplement the arrival of Fabio Aurelio and Ricardo Quarsema from the youth team.


In a gutting finish a last minute equaliser for Thamesford cancelledout Ronaldo's first half penalty and all but finished Charscot's chances of a league title. Now four points adrift any slim title chances rely upon beating Barnstoneworth next week and going on another long winning run.


A great week as the team managed to negotiate two hard games and the reserves flew to the top of the Youth League as Charscot found Vanbrugh to be cannon fodder.

Three first half goals from Alen Skoro, Darren Stone and Lee Dukes were enough for a 3-2 win as Vanbrugh huffed and puffed without truly threatening an equaliser, This result means a gap has developed below the Wolverines and has become a 4 horse race as leaders Thamesford (who Charscot visit next week) surprisingly lost.

The midweek 3rd round cup tie was a hard fought 2-1 win over Shengalien with midfielder Lee Dukes the two goal hero as he scored with five minutes of extra time left to guarantee a quarter final spot for the club.

The reserves remained undefeated as they claimed their 18th win from 20 with an easy 9-0 win over Vanbrugh to ease 3 points clear of losing Colonial Palms.


Charscot this week won their fifth consecutive away game, all without conceding a goal as they overcame Royal Mail United at The Sorting Office. Goals from Ronaldo, Alen Skoro and Lee Dukes were more than enough as they cruised to victory and closed the gap on second and third, who both failed to win.

With Charscot entertaining fifth placed Vanbrugh Royals next week a win would give them significant breathing space on the clubs below and a realistic shot at second spot...


For the third consecutive match Charscot kept a clean sheet as a solitary Alen Skoro goal was enough to ensure Charscot stayed fourth following a one-sided battle with Belmarsh. With a scoreline that flattered them Charscot will be concerned not to have scored more against a team with little to play for.

In other news Charscot were drawn at home to fellow Premiership side Shengalien today in the third round of the cup. The tie, to be played in a fortnight will be a tricky battle for the Wanderers to overcome.


After last week's disappointment Charscot bounced back in style, winning 1-0 with a goal from Ronaldo at the Space Cadets to move up to fourth and to within four points of the Cadets just after the half way point in the season.

Having only won away games 2-0 so far this season (on four occasions) having brought this run to an end they started a new version going to Wascisco Red Sox in the cup and winning their second game of the week 1-0 (Alen Skoro being the hero).

Off the field the news wasn't so good as striker Thierry Henry broke his thumb last Tuesday and will now be out for the next five weeks.


After 3 reasonable wins the ugly Charscot re-appeared today as they crumbled to a 1-2 home loss that leaves them 7 points adrift of the top 3 clubs back in fifth place. Despite levelling through Anthony Le Tallec after falling behind the team lurched to a defeat that all bar kills off their league season. Realistically the club are left to chase the Cup next week (not that realistic considering the clubs past record!!) and just play their way to a safe position in the league.


All of a sudden Charscot seem to have found the ability to beat the weaker teams as they recorded their third consecutive victory to move up to fourth place. Weirdly, Charscot continue to only win away games 2-0, as goals from Lee Dukes and Anthony Le Tallec proved enough to overcome Shengalien for the first time in their history.

The result doesn't do justice to the performance as Charscot ran Shengalien ragged for long periods. This result sets Charscot up nicely for their home game next week with former Champions Callie Athletic.


In their first ever meeting Charscot continued to show signs of improvement as they overcame a brave Lakeland Crusaders side 3-1. Captain Billy Dane was making his 200th full appearance for the club as first half goals from defenders Darren Stone and Ulrik Laursen and a goal from striker Ronaldo were enough to ensure the win.

This win moved the club to fifth and with leaders Thamesford losing left the Wolverines only 7 points from top spot.


With the arrival of four new players hanging over the squad the players responded today with a convincing 2-0 win at Steaua Charlton to move back into the top 6. First half goals from Alen Skoro and Lee Dukes proved decisive, though second half bookings for defenders Wes Brown, Billy Dane and Ulrik Laursen will have taken a little of the shine off this much needed win. This is Charscot's 3rd away win of the season, and weirdly all3 have been 2-0 wins.

How many changes there are for next weeks game against Lakeland Crusaders has yet to be determined but it could be an interesting line up...


After weeks of speculation manager Rich Grove moved tonight to bring in some much needed fresh blood. Four players have left for first division strugglers Real Madrid with four arriving in return.

Leaving were defenders Barry Towers and Paulo Maldini, the latter a surprise, to be replaced by young star John O'Shea and international Sven Nordswtrum.

Midfielder Robert Pires was allowed to leave to be replaced by former wanderers player Shaun O'Malley whilst young attacker Karl Freyer left in exchange for another former player Thierry Henry.

It is understood that the deals are not yet finished so watch this space...


Following last week's poor performance the introduction of two debutants couldn't stem the run of bad results as Charscot only scraped a 1-1 draw with a 79th minute equaliser from Karl Freyer against a poor Comberton side. The match was a poor one with nothing of note to report. After the match manager Rich Grove stated that it had gone too far and "wholesale changes are needed at this club" and that "the current run of results is wholly unacceptable".

Experts in the press believe that he is now ready to delve back into the transfer market to rejuvenate his club.


So the bad old Charscot turned up today at Lammermuir Gardens as Lammermuir cruised to a 3-0 win despite being outplayed for long periods. After the game the players were kept behind for 2 hours by manager Rich Grove , who refused to comment to the press afterwards.

Despite individually playing at a high standard, collectively the team are a shambles at present and all of a sudden the season is dying and all that's left is a possible relegation fight and a cup run..

In related news the second round cup draw as made and Charscot find themselves with a tricky game away to Wascisco Red Sox, who overcame Real Madrid in the first round. This round will not be easy to get past...


On a week when Charscot had everything to lose and nothing to gain they managed to ease to a 2-0 victory at Division 2 side Dagenham and Redbridge FC at Victoria Road. With 20 minutes to go it looked like extra time was going to be needed before Lee Dukes and Alen Skoro scored within 3 minutes of each other to send the Wolverines through to the second round.

Behind the scenes rumours still are rife that there are going to be major personnel changes as manager Rich Grove looks to freshen his squad up...


Finally Charscot won a game, overcoming a disorganised managerless Academy side. Despite winning 2-0 this was far from convincing  and in fact it took 2 own goals from Zinker and Vega to give the home side their 3rd consecutive 2-0 win of the season.

After the game manager Rich Grove remained tight lipped about rumours of players coming and going as he allegedly looks to refresh an increasingly stale looking squad..


For the third week running Charscot lost to a poor team and this one really hurt. Despite dominating for long periods they couldn't break down a previously suspect Plzen defence and were made to pay as they let in 2 goals to fall further away from the top of the league.

Manager Rich Grove was quoted afterwards as saying "our approach play was poor...our midfield are playing like prima donna's without having earned the right, our attack are going through the paces and showing no effort. The defence has done all it can but when the rest of the team fail so abjectly they can't be expected to do everything. Half the team's goals have come from defence and frankly I am sick of certain players leaving all the work to others".

This outburst may well signal wholesale changes as his patience finally goes...it could be an interesting line up next week against rock bottom managerless Academy.


And SO the slump continues as Charscot produced a truly awful performance against Richmond Republic. Despite coming from behind to lead at half time the team still managed to throw the game away with two second half goals to losse 2-3.

Goals from Ronaldo and Ulrik Laursen had looked like keeping the Wolverines in touch with the top clubs but this defeat has now left them amongst the also rans , despite only dropping to 5th.

With games against the bottom two for the next fortnight it is time the players bounced back...


Jon Sykes hit back after last week's defeat to sneak a 2-1 win with a sickeningly late winner in the 88th minute. In a close match Barnstoneworth were thankful for a scraped win which put them second, adrift ofthe Space Cadets only on goal difference. Meanwhile Charscot are fortunate to only have dropped to fourth but having played the 3rd and 2nd placed teams in the past fortnight they now find themselves up against 5th placed Richmond who they have to beat, even at this early stage..

In other news, Rich Grove successfully swooped for Portuguese starlet Fabio Aurelio. The 17 year old defender cost a little over £8 million but may prove to be a bargain in the long term...


After last week's debacle Charscot bounced back in style beating high flying Thamesford United 2-0. The third 2-0 win of the season came via second half goals from defender Darren Stone (his second of the season) and substitute Anthony Le Tallec. This result enabled the Wolverines to leapfrog Thamesford and take 3rd spot at this early stage. After all the rumours manager Rich Grove made minimal changes to his team preferring to give his players the chance to redeem themselves and it now seems unlikely that much will be changed in advance of the team's second meeting with a Jon Sykes' team in a week..


And as if on cue Charscot go out of their way to achieve the incompetent...facing pointless Vanbrugh they put in an abysmal display as they go down 1-0 and drop to fourth. With games in the next fortnight against the first and third placed teams, already Charscot find themselves facing must win games although on this performance it seems unlikely as the defeat was thoroughly deserved.

Manager Rich Grove refused to face the press after the game and spent 90 minutes behind close doors with his players after the final whistle. Whether he makes wholesale changes or gives the starting 11 one more chance will be revealed next Monday...


In a surprise week Charscot recorded their second consecutive 2-0 win and went top of the league on goal difference. Goals from Darren Stone (his first for the club in 66 games) and Eya Mistabic brought the unexpectedly early top spot. Despite Charscot winning their 200th league game in their history manager Rich Grove was refusing to get carried away after the game , recalling the previous occasion when his team were top this early in 2000 before falling away to 12th and only just avoiding relegation.

With the team playing rock bottom local rivals Vanbrugh for the first time next week it's all set up for the unlikely defeat...


Following on from last week's unspectacular start Charscot won for the first ever time at The Slade, beating Belmarsh 2-0. After last week's goalshy attack the attackers were the heroes with Alen Skoro tucking away a penalty and Ronaldo scoring a second goal just minutes later to seal the win.

Surprisingly this win took Charscot up to second, though the Wanderers will be wary of splitting the record with a defeat next week...


As a fresh season starts Charscot once again failed to get off to a winning start as they shared 4 goals with the Space Cadets. Defender Ulrik Laursen was the 2 goal hero as Charscot found themselves drawing a game they dominated and having to settle for 5th spot after one game.

Off the field the usual influx of new recruits doesn't look too promising as no potential stars look to have been signed..


So it all came down to the final week as Charscot chased a top 3 finish. With Plzen winning and Comberton drawing a win at last season's champions, Callie Athletic, would ensure the wanderers finished 3rd. After a tense first half Callie took the lead only to be pegged back by Ronaldo's 36th career goal for Charscot.

With five minutes on the clock it looked unlikely until Nigel Pepper and Ulrik Laursen scored 2 in 3 minutes to spark mass celebrations in the away end.

Having achieved their highest ever finish manager Rich Grove is now looking towards next season  as he expects the team to build on this and fight champions Thamesford for the title. Already behind the scenes Davor Suker and Brendan Shanahan have been allowed to leave the club and the early weeks of next season will determine the future of many of the fringe players...


With a top 3 finish within their grasp Charscot managed to conspire a poor defeat to a frankly struggling Shengalien.

Charscot have still failed to ever beat Shengalien in 10 attempts and on this performance that record is deserved.

With rookie keeper Jacques Songo'o having a 'mare it seems likely that James Keeley will return for next week's crucial match against another team they have never beaten - Callie Athletic.


Despite almost constant pressure it took a second goal from Ronaldo with a minute left on the clock to give Charscot

The deserved result as they won 2-1 at struggling Upton Park.

This result keeps the pressure on the teams above, who both failed to win. Charscot are now only 1 point off second spot with two games to play.


Charscot managed to consolidate their 4th position and keep pace with the top 3 in a one sided match that should have resulted in a far larger win for the home side. Vsitors Steaua Charlton didn't know what hit them as Charscot dominated from start to finish but only scored once through Anthony Le Tallec.


After last weeks dire performance Charscot produced a far better performance but had to settle for a share of the spoils for the second week running. With both themselves and opponents Comberton chasing a top 3 finish the game was as tight as expected and despite a goal after only 2 minutes from Anthony Le Tallec the away team could not hold out for the win.  Off the field, Charscot swooped to sign Pedro Martinez for £5,000,000. This signing looks like bringing the end to Brendan Shanahan's short-lived career at the Wolverines. It is anticipated that Shanahan will be on the auction market next week with Charscot looking to recoup some of their money. Leaving the club this week, rather more surprisingly , was veteran goalkeeper Paul Foster. Foster has been snapped up for  £4.5mill by Coleys Rovers. Foster's failure to maintain his form, and new recruit James Keeley's promising performances, look to have combined to bring Foster's career in the WPL to a close. Finally, another surprising move was the axing of Davor Suker who had played in every game this season prior to today. His inability to score more than 4 goals in 26 games looks to be behind Rich Grove's decision to go with his younger strikers.


After last week’s disappointing premature end to their championship bid, Charscot bounced back in fine style beating local rivals The Academy 4-2. Early goals from defenders Billy Dane and Paulo Maldini were cancelled out early in the second half before further strikes from Eya Mistabic and Anthony Le Tallec proved decisive. This win moves the club up to 4th and within striking distance of runners up spot.

In other news, Charscot swooped today to sign Portuguese starlet Ricardo Quaresma via the auction market. The bid, in excess of £9mill was Charscot’s third biggest signing and hopes are high that the 16 year old can show improvements over the next season or so..

With a break for Easter next week it is anticipated that Rich Grove may be looking to complete further transfers in anticipation for next season.

So the dream would appear to be over..Charscot went down 1-0 to Plzen this week in a game that they really should have won. Despite dominating for long periods they failed to make the most of their chances and Plzen won through an early goal from Martin Hurka. The win keeps Plzen within distance of leaders Thamesford but Charscot now find themselves out of range in 6th.

Manager Rich Grove said the week's break had broken the momentum of his team and he felt the losses to Thamesford and this week had been crucial.

With nothing of note to play for there may well be some comings and goings as plans for next season can be made...


A scrappy, dirty matchensued today at the Lisbon Lions stadium as Charscot just got past a determined Pert side. Pert came into this game looking to outpower Charscot and gain a much needed victory but the referee Mick Tempest was having none of it, sending off 2 players from the home side. The only goal split the sendings off as Carl Pennington put through his own goal. A lucky game indeed...

This win moves Charscot within one place of second, although leaders Thamesford look like certainties for the title. With the league having a break next week the game in a fortnight at home to second placed Plzen takes on great importance...


After last week's disappointment Charscot bounced back with a good 2-0 win over Jon Sykes' Barnstoneworth. Goals in each half from Nigel Pepper and free-scoring Anthony Le Tallec were enough to move the club up to fifth and with fixtures against struggling clubs coming up the Wolverines will be hoping to build on the 12 points from the last 15.

Bad news from training though, as impressive goalkeeper James Keeley sprained his ankle and looks likely to be out for at least 3 weeks. Jacques Songo'o will be hoping to impress in the next month as he's given a second chance to impress...


Charscot today went down to a 3-2 defeat to Thamesford to send United to the top of the league. The poor first half performance was their undoing as they leaked 3 goals and despite a brace from Alen Skoro they just couldn’t pull back that crucial 3rd goal to prevent the club going down to it’s 100th defeat in all competitions in it’s history.

With the title looking beyond them now Rich Grove is after their highest finishing position ever, which means a top 6 finish…


After an outstanding display of football, Charscot routed Division 1 bound Aspecto today in a game where the home team controlled the game from the outset. Defender Ulrik Laursen scored with a first minute free kick and from that moment on the result was never in any doubt. Further second half goals from substitute Eya Mistabic and Anthony Le Tallec (2) rounded off a much needed victory.

This 3rd consecutive win moves Charscot up to 5th in the table and takes the Wolverines into their battle at 2nd placed Thamesford full of confidence. The trip is a must win (or at worse,cannot lose) game which will surely determine whether Charscot have any realistic title ambitions…


A controlled, if unexciting , performance was enough today for Charscot to win their second consecutive evening kick off and move into the top 6. The goal from Alen Skoro just after half an hour proved decisive as strugglers The Mighty Reds could hardly muster any reply.

With another game against a struggling team in Aspecto next week to follow manager Rich Grove has insisted his team maximise their opportunities and move further up the table and try to put pressure on the leaders.

Off the field Rich Grove made his first positive moves to reshuffle his squad with (as rumoured last week) the departure of Ian Bishop and Philip Sherman making way for the arrival of French international defender Alain Giresse and midfielder Richard Mason. Both are considered to be long term prospects though Mason may get a shot at the team soon if the midfield doesn’t score more goals…

The departure of Ian Bishop has been expected for some time with him spending most of his time at loan to St Josephs rather than at the Blue Silver stadium.

Philip “The Tank” Sherman was a more surprising departure, though manager Nat Machtus’ desire to get him to the Space Cadets has been one of football’s worst kept secrets. The Tank impressed last season whilst on loan there and he apparently was desperate to return to a club where he felt appreciated.

More changes are expected, with the squad still having a bloated feel to it and Rich Grove has been inviting managers to make their offers for the past month to reduce the financial burden.


Charscot bounced back from a fortnight of poor results to take a crucial 3-2 win against local rivals Belmarsh SE18. Manager Rich Grove made major changes to the defence and attack with mixed results. The conceding of 2 goals was a disappointment but the newly formed attack came through in some style. With goals from recalled striker Anthony Le Tallec, captain Billy Dane and substitute Eya Mistabic the Wolverines moved into the top half of the table as they collected their first ever win against Belmarsh in 10 attempts and their 600th league point of all-time (in 437 games).

Behind the scenes Rich started to make the changes he had threatened his under-performers with. All four players out on loan have been recalled though whether it’s to give them a try at the Blue Silver Stadium or whether it’s merely to permanently offload them has yet to be determined.

Brendan Shanahan has been allowed to go out on loan to St Joseph’s BC which is seen as a straight swap for recalled Ian Bishop who expressed doubts about his future at Charscot when returning to the club.

The rumour mill has midfielder Richard Mason of the Space Cadets and defender Alain Giresse of Callie Athletic both being linked with a move to Charscot. It is understood that they would be player swap deals though who would leave is still uncertain.


Charscot today find themselves lurching into a crisis as they once again failed to beat a Machtus managed team that is outclassed for 90 minutes. Despite wholesale changes to the line up and a dominating performance a freak own goal from Barry Towers left Charscot trailing at half time. A second half goal from Alen Skoro, in his first start of the season, was not enough as the game petered out to a draw.

Manager Rich Grove was pleased with debutants James Keeley, Javier Saviola and Anthony Le Tallec and has warned his squad that there could be more changes next week as Charscot face a relegation six pointer against Belmarsh.


Today, despite an impressive display of possession football Charscot disappointingly succumbed to 3 goals without reply from a struggling Callie team. To say this result was poor would be a letdown. Despite being the reigning Champions Callie have not performed all season and frankly, Charscot should have been celebrating a convincing win.

Manager Rich Grove warned his players after the game that their futures are far from secure. “If they think that they can just do enough year in year out to stay in this division they are very much mistaken. I have been working with an excess of players for some seasons now and clearly it isn’t working.The second half of the season will determine which players have a future here – at least 6 will go at the end of the season and I don’t care how big their names are – they ALL have to prove themselves to me now !!”.

One change expected for next week will be the debut of goalkeeper James Keeley. Although happy with Jacques Songo’o ‘s performances it is understood that Rich Grove wants to see what Keeley can add to his defence. Wholesale changes may take place as the week progresses…


In a game of few chances Charscot were left to rue their lack of creativity on the day as they ground out a 1-1 draw at Shengalien. Alen Skoro took just 6 minutes after coming on as a sub to  score the equaliser (a club record 5th time for the club). Despite the poor result Charscot moved up to 7th and stay within 3 wins of the top of the table.


Charscot went back into the transfer market releasing goalkeeper Andy Petterson in an unexpected move whilst surprising most people within the WPL by swooping for young prospect Javier Saviola from Wascisco Red Sox.

Rumours have been rife that Andy Petterson was being shopped around and this was confirmed with Tony Dudley’s Brynteg Bombers of the Elizabethan League today agreeing a deal for just under £6 million.

Teenage striker Javier Saviola has yet to play a competitive match but is considered to be a rising star and with Charscot’s finances a deal for £3 million seems very little of a gamble.


A fully deserved 2-1 win over Upton Park FC as Charscot aim once again to kick start their season. The only surprises in the game came through the goalscorers both being defenders – Paulo Maldini and Billy Dane and the fact that the wolverines only won 2-1 in a game that the home side deserved to win by far more…

On the playing side current star midfielder Nigel Pepper paid tribute to his previous manager, Nat Machtus as his hard work takes him to the highest attainable abilities…Nigel stated for a local fanzine that it was Machtus’ belief and hard work on his belief that had got him to where he is now.

The only bad news for Charscot this week was the temporary delay to the transfer of James Keeley to the club…sources close to the deal claim that it was an administration error by the league that has caused a delay…League President Glynn Carey has vowed to look into the matter.


After a week of speculation manager Rich Grove gave young goalkeeper Jacques Songo’o his full league debut at Caerdydd Arms Park as rumours of Andy Petterson’s career being over at Charscot appeared to have some basis in fact. After an impressive debut the frustrating last minute equaliser that Charscot conceded could in no way be blamed on the young goalie. Goals from Billy Dane and Davor Suker had looked like giving the club a much needed away win before the gutting late equaliser leaves the wanderers in the lower reaches of the Premier division.

In an expected move today manager Rich Grove made his first move to reduce the surfeit of goalkeepers at the club allowing Mickael Landreau to join Premier division rivals Callie Athletic for what may prove to be a bargain £2.7 mill. Despite allowing this young prospect to leave the club it still looks likely that Andy Petterson will be allowed to leave the club as soon as the paperwork is completed on the deal to bring James Keeley to the club…


In a surprising turn of events today Rich Grove brought in his third goalkeeper this season signing 22 year old James Keeley. James arrives from Red Rovers of the British standard League and it’s understood that the highly rated goalkeeper was only released by the club because manager Kevin Mottram was in need of funds. The £6.5 million deal will certainly help Red Rovers and it’s anticipated that Charscot, whilst being in a comfortable financial position, may look to offset some of the costs…

Back up Andy Petterson has received criticism all season and young starlet Mickael Landreau has failed to evolve as Rich Grove has wanted. It is understood that both goalkeepers are likely to be available for cash. Already, rival manager Natasha Machtus has been linked with both goalkeepers having dallied too long over making an offer for Keeley.


A truly awful example of shot shy striking from the Charscot forwards ultimately cost Charscot dear today…whilst at the back yet another poor performance from goalkeeper Andy Petterson has left sources within the club questioning whether he actually has any future at the club.

In a game the home side should have won at a canter the only gain out of the game was a goal from substitute Alen Skoro from the penalty spot. Skoro may well find himself back in the starting line up  next week following yet another consistent performance.

In other news, reporters claim to have seen manager Rich Grove in Manchester and this has fuelled rumours that Charscot may be about to do deals with Mike Woolstencroft’s Real Madrid…
