Ill-discipline undermines visitors in early title-decider
The striker, on loan from Northampton Town, has extended his deal with Chesham for another month – music to United manager Jon Meakes’s ears.
Iaciofano has scored seven goals in his last six games – with three in the FA Trophy win against Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday.
Meakes said: “HIs response to getting suspended has been very good. I’ve been giving regular reports to Northampton and we’ve agreed to have him for another month.
“What he has done is bring us some fresh air up top, he’s taken the pressure off Lewis [Toomey] who was probably our best player on Saturday, even though Joe got the hat-trick. We’re pleased to have him for another month.”
Saturday’s win was pretty routine, and Chesham’s reward is a trip to fellow Evo-Stik Southern League Pre- mier Division side HItchin Town in the second qualifying round.
And Meakes is eyeing another couple of rounds yet.
“The first round proper is the target, I’ve been there before with Chesham and it’s when the National League teams come in and it could bring in valuable money for the club,” added Meakes. “But we’ve got a league match to focus on before that.”
Meakes takes his charges to second-placed King’s Lynn Town this weekend and is keen to show what United can do.
“We are six unbeaten, that’s positive,” said the manager.
“We’ve started slowly and we’re adding to it. They are second in the league so it’s going to be tough, but if we can go there and get some points, that will be great. They’re a big side with some ex-pros in their team, but we go there full of confidence.
“I think we’ve been in every game this season, if not always on top, and the players are getting to know what we want them to do, what’s expected of them. We just need to cut out the unforced errors.”
