AYLES­BURY FLOOR OP­PO­SI­TION

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

TOP billing in the Che­sham Sun­day League fix­ture list went to Ayles­bury Floor­ing host­ing Chal­font Saints in the Berks & Bucks In­ter­me­di­ate Cup tie – and the match cer­tainly lived up to ex­pec­ta­tions.

Two goals from Vinny Greco, one of them a penalty, were can­celled out for Saints by Steve Parks and Char­lie Kuehn, be­fore Nick Gur­ney struck Ayles­bury’s match win­ner to book a spot in the quar­ter fi­nals, but only a last-gasp breath­tak­ing save from Floor­ing keeper Ben Grasso pre­vented ex­tra-time.

Floor­ing’s Premier Divi­sion ri­vals, Mag­pies 91, took full ad­van­tage in their league meet­ing with Di­namo Che­quers to go four points clear at the top. How­ever, Mags needed all their scor­ing power to over­come a spir­ited Di­namo side that net­ted four times, via Ciprian Chel­sau, Steve Seage, Trevon Moora and Adam Dove.

The lead­ers even­tu­ally pre­vailed, scor­ing half a dozen to seal a vi­tal 6-4 win and take the points thanks to a Ryan Welsh hat-trick and fur­ther goals from Dan Ve­gas-Holt, Joe Brit­tain and Paul Hyde.

In Divi­sion One, Tom Ford was another hat-trick hero as Che­sham Ath­letic beat fel­low strug­glers El­do­rado 6-2 at Chiltern Grange, with James Daly, Jim Eames and Adam Jamieson also on tar­get. Craig Eden and Todd Mills replied for El­do­rado.

A close-fought en­counter saw Ma­clay squeeze past Pi­o­neer Re­serves 2-1, as goals from Peter Hay and Ian Ranger proved just enough to edge the match, al­though Matt Finch kept Pi­o­neer in the hunt for a point un­til the whis­tle.

Stand-in keeper Jack May­nard, don­ning the gloves for the first time, had a su­perb game but could not pre­vent The Gen­er­als go­ing down 4-2 to Ayles­bury Fu­sion. Char­lie Brooks bagged a brace for The Gen­er­als, adding to a Dale Lee strike, but two goals from Dan O’Sul­li­van and one apiece from Mikey Ro­driguez and Cal­lum Jenk­ins won it for Fu­sion.

There was dis­ap­point­ment for Black Horse as they crashed out of the Che­sham Char­ity Cup 5-0 at Wycombe League op­po­nents King Ge­orge V, while league ri­vals Old Bel­mont Pugilists and Old Amer­sham faced off in the League Cup sec­ond round tie.

Shaz­aid Mirza notched a dou­ble for Premier Divi­sion out­fit Pugilists but goals from Mikey Chap­man, Bradley Lodge and Stu­art Miles en­sured an up­set and sealed a mem­o­rable win for the Divi­sion One un­der­dogs Amer­sham.
