It started with a fanzine in the 1990’s, keeping note of great memories and thoughts whilst watching Chesham United. Today that time is shared with Saracens rugby, but with both it is about the passion, the emotions and the people you meet along the way.

Week 6:  w/c 7th January 2013

Redditch home / Bashley away The football week kicked off on Monday with a meeting at The George in Chesham with two guys from the youth section, Martin Woolnough and Dave Jeffrey from the community aspect of the club; they play an important role in being a link between several elements of the club.

About

Claret Whine was a name adopted for a Chesham United fanzine back in the early 1990’s…it got us in a lot of trouble at times! The name seemed perfect for a magazine that spent a lot of time moaning about a club that play in a claret kit, too good to go to waste; it has been kept alive via Twitter and now warranted it’s very own web page. Enjoy.

The site has been split into 3 categories now – Random blogs about Chesham United, blogs about Saracens and now it has become home to the release of a series of diary notes from 2012/13 – Travels at 40. If you enjoy reading, that’s great…I enjoyed writing, it’s like a therapy.

It’s What Makes It

“It’s the greatest day of my footballing life. All week we had been telling the lads to go out and make a name for themselves and they have done just that.” Andy Leese, November 2015

“My kicking coach tells me to imagine I’m on the beach
and that’s what I did.” Marcel Bosch, April 2015
