Stormy week­end brings change to top of the ta­ble

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE ef­fects of Storm Des­mond meant just four games started in the Che­sham Sun­day League this week – and one of those was later aban­doned.

Pioneer Re­serves’ Di­vi­sion One match with Che­sham Ath­letic was locked at 1-1 when a se­ri­ous in­jury left the ref­eree no op­tion but to bring the game to a pre­ma­ture halt, but the two Premier Di­vi­sion fix­tures to sur­vive the weather brought sig­nif­i­cant changes to the top of the ta­ble.

A hat-trick from Tom Kaill was only enough for a 4-4 draw for morn­ing lead­ers Chal­font Saints at home to Maclay FC, who had their own tre­ble­scor­ing hero in the shape of Brad Turner. Wilf Whitaker scored the visi­tors’ other goal from the spot, while Con­nor Cumber was also on the mark for the hosts.

Saints’ slip up gave two of the chasers, Mag­pies 91 and Pioneer, the chance to close in when they met at West­wood Park.

It was Clifford Ryan’s dou­ble, plus one for Andy Viney, which saw Pioneer bag the points to go level with Saints at the sum­mit.

The day’s other ac­tion came in the League Cup first round, where visi­tors Di­namo Che­quers beat hosts SFG Stones 3-1.

Jon Martin, Kyle Glaser and Ge­orge Buck­thorpe were the men on tar­get for Di­namo, mean­ing Martin White’s ef­fort for Stones proved a mere con­so­la­tion.
