chipping sodbury town RESERVES
CHIPPING SODBURY RESERVES FAILED TO COMPLETE THEIR LEAGUE PROGRAMME IN 1969/70 SEASON AND DIDNOT RETURN TO LEAGUE FOOTBALL UNTILL 1981/82 SEASON.
When Chipping Sodbury reformed in 1959/60 season, a Reserve team was formed and entered the Dursley and Wotton League the following Season in 1960/61. The Reserves then entered The Bristol & District League Division 6 the season after. The Reserves stayed in the Bristol & District League through the 1960’s. The Present history of the Reserves began in the 1981/82 season under manager John Beer. The Reserves spent two seasons in The Bristol & Avon League before joining The Bristol & District League in 1983/84 Season. After two promotions in 9 seasons, the Reserves became Champions of Division 4 in 1992/93. Ten years later, in 2003/04, the Championship of Division 3 was attained. A Great run in the GFA Intermediate cup saw the side reach the final but come runners-up to Soundwell Victoria the following Season. After finishing runners-up and getting promoted in 2006/07 they go 1 better and become Champions of the Bristol & District League Division 1 in 2007/08. The next seven seasons were spent yo-yoing between the Senior Division and Division 1. Becoming Champions for a fourth time in the Reserves history saw them win the Senior Division in 2015/16. The following season was another success for the Reserves, when in their first season in The Premier Combination Division 1 they finished runners-up and were promoted to The Premier Combination. The first season in The Premier Combination saw “The Sods” leaving it late and winning 5 of their last 6 games in a 15 day period, to finish in tenth place. 2018/19 Season saw the team finish in 11th place and remain in the Premier Combination, the highest league standing in the Reserves History.
