Clark’s dou­ble se­cures Saints’ pas­sage into cup fi­nal

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

LEE Clark’s brace saw Chal­font Saints book a place in the Che­sham Sun­day League Cup fi­nal with a 2-1 win over Di­namo Che­quers on Sun­day.

Di­namo per­formed im­pres­sively to push the Premier Divi­sion cham­pi­ons right to the whis­tle, but Scott John­ston’s ef­fort was not enough in the end.

There was semi-fi­nal heartache for both Pi­o­neer and Ma­clay FC in the Vale of Ayles­bury Cup, with Pi­o­neer crash­ing out 4-3 on penal­ties at Bucks FC fol­low­ing a 2-2 draw (Gil­bert, Viney), while Ma­clay went down 5-0 to hosts Two Touch.

There was bet­ter luck for Che­sham Ath­letic (Black Cat) and Pi­o­neer Re­serves in the Ayles­bury Ju­nior Cup, with Jack Grant’s vol­ley from out­side the area set­ting the tone for Che­sham’s 3-0 win over Weavers, in which Jake Collins and Gra­ham Com­per also net­ted, while Craig Ot­t­away and Karl Har­ris en­sured Pi­o­neer pro­gressed 2-1 at AFC Un Unique.

The cup pic­ture was com­pleted by an Al­lan Moore Cup gro group game bet be­tween Misty Mo Moon and Queens He Head, which fin fin­ished 2-2 af­ter ma man of the match St Ste­wart King struck tw twice for Moon, w while David Goss an and Tay­lor Baines re replied for Queens.

In league ac­tion, Mag­pies 91 closed the gap on the top two in the Premier, beat­ing Last Post 3-1 to con­sol­i­date third spot, al­though a ti­tle bid looks slim. Goals from Ryan Sweales, Miles Bax­ter and Chris Pearcey sealed the points, while Leo Smith de­liv­ered Post’s con­so­la­tion.

Old Bel­mont Pugilists re­gained top spot in Divi­sion One af­ter a suc­cess­ful trip to Prest­wood saw them beat El­do­rado 3-1.

A Ge­orge King dou­ble and a Dale Lee strike se­cured the points, while top scorer Kieran Webb pulled one back for the hosts.
