In memory of Seb Chadwick

In Memory of Seb Chadwick

We remember Seb Chadwick, who sadly passed away last month.

On 25 March, Seb Chadwick of Civil Service FC passed away aged 38.

Seb collapsed during a game. It was found he had a brain aneurysm which burst. Seb was not aware he had this condition.

The paramedics were there immediately and he was taken to intensive care by ambulance. Sadly he did not recover. Seb had made the positive decision to be an organ donor and four individuals received the most amazing gift possible from Seb. Had his teammates not responded immediately to give him CPR, Seb would not have made it to hospital and the organ donation would not have been possible.

Seb played for Civil Service for 12 years. Seb was a centre back, with the occasional foray into centre mid. He was a great competitor who you always wanted on your side when going into battle.

Seb started in the 4th team, winning titles including back to back Amateur FA Minor Cups. He moved through the sides and represented the 1st team playing 60+ games. If he was ever dropped he was determined to fight his way back. Seb's stand out performance was against The Warren to secure promotion back to SAL senior division 1 as champions. He was immense that day.

Seb was a true clubman and over his time at the club he always made himself available for any side that needed him, including playing in the SAL Veterans league.

He was a very popular member of the club, and had friends across all sides. He is very much missed.

Seb was a support of the Steven Bernard Foundation, which raises money for sporting projects and has supported more than 600 projects covering more than 30 sports and 4 continents. You can donate to the Foundation here.
