CHE­SHAM SUN LGE >>

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

LEWIS Thomp­son scored his first ever goal for Last Post as they squeezed past Che­sham Sun­day League ri­vals Mag­pies Re­serves in the Al­lan Moore Cup.

Premier Di­vi­sion side Post were made to work hard against their Di­vi­sion One hosts, but three in the last 20 min­utes se­cured a 3-0 vic­tory and a safe pas­sage for the Premier Di­vi­sion side.

The other two came from Craig Bous­field, his sec­ond a fine solo ef­fort, and took the hot-shot’s tally for the sea­son to 17.

There were two other Premier ver­sus Di­vi­sion One clashes in the same com­pe­ti­tion, but no up­sets to be seen as El­do­rado and Di­namo Che­quers put out Old Bel­mont and Ma­clay FC.

A Kieran Webb hat-trick, plus fur­ther goals from Paul Vincent, Matt Bunt­ing, Paul Craft, Steve Stroud, Tim Webb and Stu­art Hawkes, saw El­do­rado ham­mer Bel­mont, for who Dale Lee net­ted a con­so­la­tion, 9-1, while goals from Alis­tair Dea­con and Dan Fletcher helped Di­namo just about see off Ma­clay, who replied through Beaven Gosling, 2-1.

In league ac­tion, Chal­font Saints strength­ened their chal­lenge for the Premier ti­tle with a 10-0 thrash­ing of Misty Moon, thanks to hat­tricks from Tom Kaill and Charlie Kuehn, plus a Mitchell McNulty dou­ble and fur­ther goals from Al­fie Cum­ber and Con­nor Cum­ber.

Ti­tle ri­vals Mag­pies 91 came out on top in their six-pointer at home to cur­rent cham­pi­ons Pi­o­neer, goals from George Larkin and Chris Pearcy earn­ing Mag­pies a 2-1 win, while Reyna Wheel­erSmith hit Pi­o­neer’s re­ply.

In Di­vi­sion One, Pi­o­neer Re­serves and Tring An­chor missed the op­por­tu­nity to close on lead­ers Ma­clay FC, los­ing 4-3 to Che­sham Ath­letic and 3-2 to Queen’s Head re­spec­tively.

Two goals from Lawrence Cham­ber­lain and one from Ben Ford were not enough for Pi­o­neer, as a Matt Griggs brace, plus Adam Jamieson and Jack Grant strikes, edged it for Che­sham, while Dan Stead­man’s dou­ble was scant con­so­la­tion for Tring as Louie Shana­han, Frank Clark and Tay­lor Baines se­cured the points for Queen’s.

SFG Stone also won con­vinc­ingly 5-2 against strug­glers Chiltern Charg­ers, with Martin White and Mark Sin­gle­ton both bag­ging braces and Duane Ryan also on the score sheet, although Os­car Sutchodol­ski added some re­spectabil­ity to the score­line with two replies for Charg­ers.
