SOMETHING had to give on a day of firsts in the Chesham Sunday League Cup semi-final between SFG Stone and Queen’s Head on Sunday.
Both sides were bidding to reach their first cup final and in the end it was Queen’s who prevailed 3-1, courtesy of a Casey Birkett brace and a Peter Jobes strike.
Tommy Buchan kept Stone’s hopes alive with their goal, but their opponents held firm to set up a final against either Last Post or Eldorado.
Elsewhere, in the Allan Moore Cup group, Stewart King hit a hat-trick as Premier Division side Misty Moon returned to action with a 3-1 win over Division One leaders Maclay FC, top scorer Dean Gavin replying for Maclay.
Craig Bousfield was also a hattrick hero as Last Post warmed up for their League Cup semi this Sunday by winning 4-2 at Magpies 91, with Gary Bull also netting while Ben Ashwin and Ryan Welsh made a fist of it for the hosts.
Chalfont Saints and Pioneer, who face each other this week in the Chesham Charity Cup semis on Sunday, showed no charity to Eldorado or Chiltern Chargers, winning 3-0 and 5-1 respectively.
Luke Smith hit a hat-trick for Saints, while braces from Damien Wheeler-Smith and James O’Neill, and an Andy Viney strike, eased Pioneer home, despite a Flojan Marku reply.
Goals from Neil Hyrons and Dale Lee saw Old Belmont through 2-0 against Chesham Athletic in the remaining Allan Moore tie, while the week’s sole league fixture saw Tring Anchor and Magpies Reserves draw 3-3 in Division One, Adam Gnulati, Stuart Howe and Lewis Hopcroft on target for Tring, while George Larkin, Stuart Mills and Dan Gilbert ensured parity for Mags.
