FC client Pascal Chimbonda signs for Carlisle United

chimbondaFull Contact client Pascal Chimbonda has today signed terms with League 1 side Carlisle United, subject to the necessary regulatory approvals.

Pascal, born in Guadeloupe but raised in France (and a member of the French 2006 World Cup squad), first moved to English football in 2005 when he signed for Wigan Athletic.  After one hugely impressive season for Wigan, Tottenham Hotspur paid £4.5million for Pascal’s services late in the summer window of 2006.  Spells at Sunderland and Blackburn followed, before Pascal completed the 2011/2012 season at Doncaster Rovers.

After playing some pre-season football this year with non-league side Market Drayton, due to Pascal’s connection with another Full Contact client (Yannick Makota), Pascal has waited for the right opportunity to return to the professional game in England.  Graham Kavanagh’s recent appointment as manager of Carlisle United provided that opportunity, since Kavanagh was a team-mate of Pascal’s in his stand out season for Wigan Athletic.   After impressing during a period of training with the club, Pascal has signed for the remainder of the calendar year, initially.

Dan Chapman, senior partner of Full Contact, said “It has been a pleasure working with Pascal over the last few months, and we are delighted that he is back in the professional game in England.  Whilst 34,  make no mistake about it: Pascal is in good shape and we are sure he will prove to be a great acquisition for Carlisle.”

All at Full Contact wish Pascal and Carlisle United the very best.
