United reserves fight back to turn formbook on its head
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.
