Mike Chedgy

We're extremely sad to have learned of the recent passing of club legend, Mike Chedgy.

Mike Chedgy, back row, centre.

CHEDGY signed for The Robins as a left back from Welton Rovers in the summer of 1964. He had previously played for Clandown and Swindon Town.


Quickly establishing himself as a fan favourite, he was runner-up in the Supporters' Player of the Year poll that season and scored his first goal for the club in a 1-0 FA Cup win at Taunton.


Rarely out of the side, he was a member of the Somerset Premier Cup winning team that defeated Yeovil Town over two legs in 1967 and two years later, the cup was shared with the same opponents.


It was at this time he became club captain, moving up to the left side of midfield (left half in those days) as The Robins recorded back to back fifth place finishes, their highest at the time in the top flight of the Western League.


He left briefly in October 1969 to become player manager (aged just 26) at Paulton Rovers but returned within three months to Badgers Hill where he stayed until the end of the 70-71 season before another move to Paulton.


In his seven years at Frome, Mike Chedgy made just over 270 appearances, scoring eleven goals and will be warmly remembered by all those lucky enough to have seen him play.
