Ill-dis­ci­pline un­der­mines vis­i­tors in early ti­tle-de­cider

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.”
