Big boost for Queen’s


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

QUEEN’S Head warmed up for their League Cup semi-fi­nal this Sun­day by grab­bing a con­fi­dence boost­ing draw at Ma­clay FC on Sun­day.

A Dan Ben­ning strike earned them a 1-1 draw against the Che­sham Sun­day League Di­vi­sion One lead­ers, for whom Dean Gavin net­ted, keep­ing the ti­tle race alive.

Their semi-fi­nal op­po­nents, SFG Stone, also flexed their mus­cles ahead of the big day by beat­ing Tring An­chor 5-0, with the goals shared around Danny Tay­lor, Ben Far­row, Andy Hig­gin­son, Ryan Whit­ney and Aaron Nor­man.

A com­fort­able home win for Old Bel­mont over Chiltern Charg­ers com­pleted the Di­vi­sion One pic­ture, with two goals from Neil Hy­rons and one each from Steve Wood and Ge­orge King earn­ing a 4-1 win, while Ricky Eggleton net­ted a con­so­la­tion for Charg­ers.

Mag­pies 91 con­tin­ued their im­pres­sive re­cent league form in the top flight’s only fix­ture, beat­ing ti­tle ri­vals Pi­o­neer 4-2, with goals from Ryan Welsh, Matt Sel­ley, Chris Pearcy and Paul Hyde, while a Clif­ford Ryan dou­ble was scant con­so­la­tion for Pi­o­neer.

Al­lan Moore Cup ac­tion saw Di­namo Che­quers ham­mer Misty Moon 8-0, with Dan Fletcher grab­bing half their tally, while Ciprian Chelseau bagged a brace and Matt Napier and Ge­orge Buck­thorpe com­pleted the scor­ing.

There was a much closer en­counter in the other group game, but El­do­rado even­tu­ally pre­vailed 4-2 against Che­sham Ath­letic. Matt Griggs and Ja­son Dun­can were on tar­get for Ath­letic, but it was not enough as Dar­ryl Cooper, Ade Payne, Tim Webb and Ge­orge Cooke struck for El­do­rado.
