Chimbonda watch:

Washington’s headline-grabbing signing of Pascal Chambonda boosted the attendance but his debut ended in a defeat.

Playing at right back, he wasn’t in the thick of the action but until the dying minutes had a relatively comfortable, straight forward game. He made a couple of penetrating runs down the flanks and always made himself available to other defenders as an outlet.

Fitness and a degree of rustiness may have been factors, but in added on time at the end of the match he was out-muscled for the ball by Shields that led to a clear chance for the Cumbrians – a reminder, if any was needed, that it’s a physical league.

Signing for the Mechanics made news around the world, including Japan and Bangladesh.

Before yesterday’s game he said: “It’s a new experience, I have never played in a division that is the ninth level in the country.

“It is two years since my last game, but my fitness is good. I look after myself, I train, I am ready to play, if the coach selects me. I just want to play and if I can help the coach I will do so.

“I will help the younger players and try to help them approach the game in the right way. I want to help them through the game, to keep the ball, to win games.

Pascal had been in contact with the club for several weeks before the deal was finalised on Thursday night.

“Everytime we talked, the manager asked me how I was, how my fitness is and we stayed in touch as the talks went on. I went to the French Federation to help the move get completed. The people over there know me. It was quick and I am happy to sign.”

He hopes to move into coaching once his playing days are over.
