Charlie Mapes, formerly of Tottenham, played for Norwich Youths
in a 2-0 victory over England Schools Under 18s on 26th April
After spending 2000/01 with Cardiff City, Charlie had an unsuccessful
trial with Yeovil in the summer of 2001. In October 2001, he joined
Harrow Borough but also had a trial with Scottish side Ayr United.
At the beginning of 2002, Charlie swapped to Ryman League rivals
Edgware Town but moved on to Wealdstone the following August.
He joined Hertfordshire side Berkhamstead Town at the end of February
Charlie sought a return to league football in April 2003 when
he trialled for Wycombe Wanderers in a reserve team clash with
Colchester. The Chairboys won 5-0 but Mapes' goal was overshadowed
by a hat-trick for fellow trialist Andy Bell of Blackburn. A fine
performance in another reserve game persuaded Wycombe manager
Lawrie Sanchez to make Mapes his first signing of the 2003 pre-season
when he signed the hardworking central midfielder at the end of
May 2003. Wycombe fans hoped that Mapes will emulate fan favourite
Keith Ryan who also joined Wanderers from Berkhamstead.
Unfortunately for Mapes and his Wycombe teammates, they were
relegated into Division Three in April 2004. Following which,
Charlie was released by Wycombe on May 14th 2004. He signed for
Conference side Crawley Town on 16th July 2004. On 4th March 2005,Charlie
was loaned to fellow Conference side Canvey Island for a month.
Charlie returned to Crawley playing in their victorious Sussex
Senior Cup final but was released at the beginning of May 2005.
The following month, he joined Yeading.
In March 2006, he was loaned to Hendon
Later on in 2006, Charlie transferred to Hemel Hempstead Town
After a spell with Barton Rovers, Charlie signed for Hayes &
Yeading United although he will still be registered with Barton
Charlie was transferred to Hendon in August 2008
