  • "With Goode in place at Chinnor, winning the league might have been the case, but I think he has been key in Chinnor's rise over the last few seasons and is a major loss. He certainly transformed their back play when he arrived, to add to their forward grunt."

MATT Goode has tipped Chinnor to win the title next season after leaving to join fellow National 2 South club Cambridge.

The powerful centre was player-coach in 2013-14 as Chinnor avoided relegation on the final day.

Goode was offered an assistant coach role, but accepted a more senior post at Cambridge.

“I definitely believe Chinnor will be up there winning the league with the signings they have made,” he said.

“It may seem strange that I am leaving a club that will win the league, but it is just about my career and moving forwards.

“I have left on a good note and if there any openings with coaching at Chinnor in the future, I would consider going back.”
