DAVID PRATT It is with some sadness I must inform you that David has decided to leave the club and join Wealdstone FC. Whilst David was on contract and I made it clear to the Wealdstone Chairman that he was not for sale, they were able to get an offer to David via a third party, I am lead to believe that offer was for more than double what he is paid by Chippenham, once he was aware of the offer he no longer wanted to stay at Chippenham. I am sure you can understand there is never any point in forcing a player to stay against his will even if he is on contract, as you never get the best from the player and it can cause unrest in the dressing room. At that stage my task was to get the best deal for the club and I believe I have done that. Mark is now looking for a suitable replacement, we will keep you updated with any developments.
