Last Post have the last laugh over Pi­o­neer


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - 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.
