Under 13 squad member Charlie Payne got the first team treatment last Saturday as he lead the Lilywhites out for their home match with Hartley Wintney. He was also presented with a signed shirt too.

Charlie, a centre back, sustained a bad injury during a league match in December 2017. He stopped and turned abruptly on the Astroturf and suffered a cruciate ligament injury. As a result, he cannot kick a ball and play football until he has an operation, which may not be until he stops growing in approx. 3 years from now when he turns 16. However, there is a chance that with some new surgical techniques he may be able to have an operation much sooner.

Working the line....Charlie meets the opposition

Phil Brasher, Chairman of CCFC Youth Development said “Charlie's injury was a massive shock to us all. We wish him all the best when he starts the long journey back to fitness. Due to Charlie not being able to play, he has shown a keen interest in coaching, which we will support him with and provide the opportunity for him to work with his manager and possibly some of the other youth teams. Cambridge City FC is not just a football club it is a family club and everyone is always keen to ask for an update on his progress, so it was great that the first team invited him to lead the team out on Saturday”.

Charlie’s parents said “Cambridge City FC have been incredibly supportive, making sure to include Charlie at every opportunity. They are a fantastic club and we’d like to thank them for all their support. Charlie cannot wait to get back playing for the team!”
