Farnborough v Chelmsford City preview
12:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
THE wait is over for Chelmsford City fans this Saturday afternoon as they get to experience their first competitive match under the stewardship of new manager Dean Holdsworth, with the Clarets opening their Skrill Conference South campaign at Farnborough, with free admission for fans for the 3pm kick-off.
Holdsworth has assembled a talented group of players since taking the hot seat at Melbourne Stadium over the summer and he added another signing on Thursday evening with the arrival of former Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion full-back Ben Sampayo.
The 20-year-old played for Chelsea’s academy and reserves for five years before moving to Brighton.
He could be involved as Chelmsford travel to Hampshire for their season opener at Farnborough.
They’ve hit the headlines this week for their unusual sponsorship deal which has seen all of their players change their names to footballing legends Cruyff, Maradona and Messi, who are amongst those who will be lining-up at Paddy Power Park.
