CUP ac­tion dom­i­nated last week­end’s Che­sham Sun­day League pro­gramme on a frosty morn­ing, which forced off Che­sham Ath­letic’s home fix­ture with Ma­clay FC.

Premier Di­vi­sion ti­tle hope­fuls Mag­pies 91 and Chal­font Saints met in the Che­sham Char­ity Cup, and it was Saints who even­tu­ally pre­vailed to lay down a marker for the league run-in. Two goals from Mitchell McNulty and Con­nor Cum­ber proved enough for Saints to progress.

In the same com­pe­ti­tion, El­do­rado faced Arthur’s in what was to be an event­ful en­counter.

Four goals apiece at full time, the vis­i­tors went through 6-5 in ex­tra-time. Kieran Webb can feel ag­grieved to be on the los­ing side as he net­ted four of El­do­rado’s goals, with Dar­ryl Cooper also on tar­get, but they exit at the sec­ond round stage.

Ben Far­row also bagged four as SFG Stone beat Pi­o­neer Re­serves 7-2 in the League Cup, with Danny Tay­lor, Tommy Buchan and Aaaron Nor­man also in­flict­ing dam­age on Pi­o­neer, for whom Ben Ford and Andy Caple replied.

Tring An­chor had the daunt­ing prospect of a visit to cur­rent cham­pi­ons Pi­o­neer in an Al­lan Moore Cup group stage match, and in the event the re­sult went to form, but a spir­ited ef­fort from An­chor re­stricted the hosts to goals via Wheeler-Smith, Viney, Spurr, Ke­nealy and McVeigh.

Premier League duty fell to Last Post and Di­namo Che­quers, who played out a high-scor­ing match pro­duc­ing ten goals. Un­for­tu­nately for Di­namo, Post net­ted seven of the ten through Craig Bous­field (2), Miles Bea­van (2), Gary Bull, Leo Smith and Joel Break­s­pear.

Che­quers did hit back cour­tesy of Ai­den Glaser, Harry Ed­wards and Dan Fletcher, but top flight vic­to­ries have been few and far be­tween since their bright start to the cam­paign.

In Di­vi­sion One, Queens Head and Old Bel­mont Pugilists recorded con­trast­ing wins against Chiltern Charg­ers and Mag­pies 91 Re­serves. Queens made light of Charg­ers, scor­ing six times through Casey Bir­kett (2), Alex Jones, Dan Ben­ning, David Goss and Peter Jobes, while the Pugilists had to rely on just a sin­gle goal from Dale Lee to earn max­i­mum points.
