Biography: 'Whelps' signed for Chelmsford City in August 2018 and made his debut in the 6-0 victory away to Hungerford Town.

He started his youth career with Norwich City before featuring for the academies of Arsenal and Ipswich Town.

Whelpdale signed for Maldon Town (now Maldon & Tiptree) in 2004 where he stayed for 2 years before signing for Billericay Town in 2006. His performances for Ricay caught the eyes of Peterborough United, who gave him his chance in the Football League.

He went on to make over 100 appearances for the Posh before also featuring for fellow Football League teams Gillingham (initially on loan), Stevenage and AFC Wimbledon.

Following his release from Stevenage after his second spell with the Boro, Chris was convinced to join Chelmsford City.

Throughout the 2018/19 season, 'Whelps' made over 40 appearances for the Clarets in all competitions, scoring 11 goals.

He won February's National League South Player of the Month award and his impressive & consistent performances for City also earned him a place in the NLS Team of the Season.

Chris' achievements on the pitch were matched off the pitch as he was heavily involved with the Club's Community Project, which included school visits and choreographing goal celebrations for our home games where students and parents from our school visits were in attendance.
