Big step for Pi­o­neer


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CUR­RENT cham­pi­ons Pi­o­neer beat cur­rent lead­ers Chal­font Saints on Sun­day to take a big step to­wards re­tain­ing their Che­sham Sun­day League crown, writes Gra­ham Barkus.

Goals from JP Jamil, Andy Viney and JJ O’Neil sealed three valu­able points for the Amer­sham side, although Saints still hold pole po­si­tion in the Premier Di­vi­sion.

Else­where, Mag­pies 91 kept in touch at the top with a con­vinc­ing win over one-time chal­lengers Last Post, with Ryan Welsh (2), Paul Hyde and Ali Horner net­ting the de­ci­sive goals.

El­do­rado and Di­namo Che­quers also shared four goals at Prest­wood. Both sides desperately wanted max­i­mum points, but de­spite the hosts scor­ing through Kieran Webb and Paul Craft, Di­namo en­sured par­ity, re­ply­ing via Nabeel Hamed and Scott John­ston.

Di­vi­sion One lead­ers Ma­clay FC showed their ti­tle cre­den­tials with a com­pre­hen­sive 5-2 home win over SFG Stone, with goals from Dan Ren­ni­son, Dean Gavin, Beaven Gosling, Joe Roach­ford and Joshua Roberts keep­ing Ma­clay on course for a de­but sea­son pro­mo­tion, although Ben Far­row and Ryan Whit­ney added some re­spectabil­ity to the score­line for SFG.

Pi­o­neer Re­serves also en­joyed an em­phatic win at de­feated Old Bel­mont, with a James Whit­field hat-trick and a Stu­art Aldridge brace mean­ing Dale Lee’s strike was scant con­so­la­tion for Bel­mont.

In the Ayles­bury Vale Cup, an all-CSL tie pro­duced an up­set, as Premier side Misty Moon crashed out to Di­vi­sion One out­fit Che­sham Ath­letic, with Ja­son Dun­can, Ben Dun­can, Mike Pearce, Adam Jamieson and Tom Far­rell all on tar­get for the gi­ant-killers.

Over in the Sub­sidiary Cup, a Casey Bir­kett hat-trick, a Gra­ham Cobb dou­ble and fur­ther goals from Alex Jones and Peter Jobes saw Queens Head go through against Tring An­chor, who replied through Stu­art Howe (2), Nathan Grin­ter and Matt Stacey in a high­scor­ing clash.
