Chambers has been named on the bench.

JA Sports Management, Chambers’ representatives have given Severn Sport an exclusive statement:

“Karnell has had a good consistent year of playing games at this level so far and by joining Chippenham it ensures that he will continue to do so up until the summer. There were a number of clubs interested but both Karnell and ourselves thought that Chippenham were the best option for him at this time, after assessing all offers in front of us.”

“It is no secret that Karnell is looking to get back into full time football and by signing for Chippenham it is a great platform for him to showcase himself in the build up to the summer. All of us here at JA Sports Management have every faith in his ability and believe it is a matter of when and not if for him. We would also like to give our thank to Chippenham Town who were great in the getting the deal done in time for him to be available for tonight’s game.”
