Stalybridge Celtic may be languishing in the relegation zone of the National League North, but they have showed signs of life in recent weeks, producing a fine second half display in their last home game against Curzon Ashton to almost snatch a draw. Curzon may have held on for the win, but one player who made a big impact is midfielder Aiden Chippendale who scored Celtic’s consolation goal.
Chippendale is a winger and started his youth career at Bradford City before signing professionally for Huddersfield Town From here he had loan spells at York City and Inverness Caledonian Thistle before permanently moving to Accrington Stanley, making six appearances. He then signed for bury but was immediately sent on loan to Chester, where he played seven times, scoring once. He then signed for AFC Fylde, then Ashton, before Stalybridge acquired him in July 2014. He’s since been a regular starter for the Tameside outfit.
Chippendale has scored four times for Celtic this season, including on Boxing Day against Curzon and has been influential in creating chances down the wing. He could certainly be the most dangerous threat to Halifax on Saturday.
