United re­serves fight back to turn form­book on its head

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Clark. Their re­sponse though was in­stant as, straight from the kick­off, a long ball caught the home de­fence nap­ping, al­low­ing Ricky Bren­nan to slip a shot in­side the keeper’s right-hand post.

By the half hour the turn­around was com­pleted as mid­field ace Che Kin To pro­duced a lit­tle bit of magic, and in the goal­mouth scram­ble which fol­lowed Jack Har­ris popped up to poke the ball home.

Jamie Sylvester al­most lev­elled with a se­cond-half strike which crashed to safety off the bar, but Che­sham held on to stay fourth.

They were due in ac­tion again last night at Brims­down be­fore en­ter­tain­ing Cod­i­cote at the meadow on Satur­day.

In Divi­sion Two, Amer­sham were out of luck on their trav­els to Pitstone & Ivinghoe.

They led 2-1 cour­tesy of Cal­lum Neal’s ex­quis­ite lob and a penalty from Kieran Knight, who saw an­other ef­fort cleared off the line.

Stand-in keeper Harry Loakes had per­formed mir­a­cles in goal, but was help­less to stop the hosts lev­el­ling the scores from the spot, while the re­sult hinged on 30 sec­onds of ac­tion late on as Knight struck the in­side of the post at one end only for Pitstone to clear off the line and score the win­ner from the re­sult­ing counter.

Amer­sham are back at home on Satur­day when they en­ter­tain Loughton.

Mean­while, Holmer Green’s Premier Divi­sion fix­ture at Lon­don Tigers was post­poned, so they hope to play for the first time in three weeks on Satur­day away at strug­gling St Mar­garets­bury.
