Charlie Mapes

Norwich Career: Trial (April 2000)
Current Club: Hendon (Ryman League)
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


Charlie Mapes, formerly of Tottenham, played for Norwich Youths in a 2-0 victory over England Schools Under 18s on 26th April 2000.

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 2003.

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.

After a spell with Barton Rovers, Charlie signed for Hayes & Yeading United although he will still be registered with Barton Rovers
