‘Here we go’ – Fans all say the same thing as Chunkz scores screamer against Sidemen in front of Crawley scouts
YOUTUBER Chunkz produced a Goal of the Month contender during the unlikely Match of the Day.
The Sidemen charity match returned after a four-year absence this afternoon in front of a SOLD OUT crowd at Charlton Athletic’s The Valley home.
Fans flocked to South East London – with League Two Crawley Town even sending their scouts to see if they could unearth any gems.
The clash saw KSI’s world-renowned Sidemen group take on a selection of YouTube Allstars including Soccer Aid sensation Noah Beck.
All seven Sidemen members – Josh Bradley, Simon Minter, Tobi Brown, Ethan Payne, Vikram Barn and Harry Lewis – are in action at The Valley with KSI.
AnEsonGib, fresh from his sensational KO win over Austin McBroom, was in action for YouTube Allstars.
Australian YouTuber LazarBeam and Cal the Dragon also got kitted out but it was former Soccer Aid star Chunkz that stole the show inside six minutes.
The 26-year-old Londoner picked up a loose ball around 35 yards out, and like a seasoned pro, he pulled the trigger and floated the ball straight past the despairing goalie and into the top corner to break the deadlock.
The crowd, and his YouTuber Allstars teammates, went wild… and social media soon followed as his screamer went viral.
And with Crawley in attendance, many were quick to use transfer guru Fabrizio Romano’s catchphrase to speculate that a switch to watching Crawley could be on the cards.

One wrote: “Chunkz to Crawley here we go!”
A fellow viewer commented: “Chunkz is working hard for that Crawley contract.”
As another said: “That’s Chunkz signing for Crawley!”
While another tweet said: “CHUNKZ IS WORKING FOR THAT CONTRACT FROM CRAWLEY TOWN, WHAT A HIT.”
And a fellow supporter wrote: Chunkz gonna be on Crawley town after this performance.”
It was a far cry from his missed penalty at Soccer Aid in 2020, that cost England the shootout.
This is how each side lined-up for the opening period, which incredibly produced a whopping SEVEN GOALS, as the YouTube Allstars went in at the break leading 4-3.
