CHESHAM SUN LGE www.getbucks.co.uk/sport
JOE Wright bagged a brace, including a last-minute winner, as Last Post edged out Pioneer 3-2 on the opening day of the new Chesham Sunday League season.
Wright and Neil Goodson twice put Last Post in front either side of the break, but twice Pioneer levelled through Liam O’Neall, only for Wright to settle it at the death.
Elsewhere in the top flight, Chalfont Saints were leading Misty Moon 5-0 when the game was ended prematurely, with six minutes remaining, after Moon debutant Peter Muddiman suffered a severe knee injury. Under league rules, the result, as well as Connor Cumber’s hat-trick and further goals from Ross Shepherd and Andy Keenan, still stands.
Dinamo Chequers carried last season’s form into the new campaign with a 4-0 win over Eldorado – two goals apiece from Amien Sehmi and Muddisar Shah gave them the perfect start.
In Division One, Nathan Simpson scored the only goal of the game for Magpies 91 Reserves against newcomers SFG Stone. Man of the match George Larkin took out two defenders with a great run, allowing Stuart Miles to tee up Simpson with an excellent cross.
Korron Nelson had a shot cleared off the line by a Stone defender, while at the other end, Lucas Kaczynski, Danny Gilbert, Chris Reddington, Sam Hawkins and Richard Parry stood firm as Stone pushed for an equaliser.
Elsewhere, Chesham Athletic edged out another new side, Chiltern Chargers, by the odd goal in five, thanks to strikes from Ryan Smith, Matt Griggs and Jack Grint, with James Evans at the double for the Chargers.
Queens Head started with a win by the same scoreline against Maclay, courtesy of Dan Green’s double and an own goal, and Maclay replied through Matt Ashby and Pat Hanlan.
The game between Old Belmont and Anchor (Tring) ended all square, with Shazia Mirza bagging two and Karl Harris one for Belmont. Dan Steadman, with two, and Nathan Grinter replied for Anchor.
TIT FOR TAT: There was plenty of goal-mouth action in the game between Last Post and Pioneer
