Chippenham Town find themselves just three points away from the play-off spots in the National League South and Karnell Chambers has been pivotal in their league position this campaign.

Chambers spoke to Gloucestershire sports journalists Severn Sport on behalf of Core Sports about his season so far at Hardenhuish Park.

“The season has been really good so far. I’ve enjoyed playing football at Chippenham and the lads are great. We find ourselves 3 points off the playoffs, which is more than anyone expected of us. We take it game by game and see where that takes us during the season.

Some players within the squad have played at a higher level, a level I want to get to, so everyday I’m learning and I can’t thank them enough.”

The 21 year old former Gloucester City midfielder has 26 league appearances in a season that has seen him making the most appearances for one club in a single season, as well as scoring 9 league goals in his best return yet. Chambers remains positive and whilst he has achieved his own goals, that there is more to come for the rest of the season.

“The objective for me individually was to play as many games as I can and I knew that at Chippenham I would be getting that opportunity. I’m thankful to the staff and everyone at the club for that, I knew that once I am playing regularly and making the amount of appearances in the National League, then the rest would come naturally – like the goals, the assists and the performances.

Being in double figures for goals so early on at a young age gives me more motivation to get to where I want to be because this level is very difficult and is a great stepping stone in the right direction for me. Right now the only way is up.” Chambers said exclusively to Severn Sport.

“My aims for the rest of the season is to help the team win as much games as possible to help us secure a top 10 finish, at least. It would be a great accomplishment for the club and I think it is very possible because we have already beaten some of the top teams in the league, like the likes of Torquay United and doing the double over Billericay.”

Chambers also talked about this weekend’s fixture, as Chippenham head east to take on Welling United, knowing a win can take them into the play-off places.

“Saturday’s game away at Welling will be a very difficult game but it will be a great result for us if we can get the 3 points. A win should take us into a playoff position I think and we are in great form on the pitch, with a high team morale on and off the pitch at the moment – so hopefully we can take all three points.”
