Late hero Corn­hill fires classy Clarets

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Matt Lee

MAX CORN­HILL’S late win­ner pro­pelled Chelms­ford City up to third af­ter their third league win in a row.

Strug­gling White­hawk started well and Mike West dragged an ef­fort wide af­ter 20 min­utes.

Ash­ley Miller’s way­ward de­fen­sive header on 25 min­utes al­most al­lowed the vis­i­tors’ top scorer to net, but the striker bal­looned his ef­fort over.

White­hawk keeper Thomas Stewart played an in­flu­en­tial part in keep­ing the two sides apart through­out the first half, with the debu­tant stop­per deny­ing Shaun Jef­fers, El­liott Buchanan and Josh Rees.

Rod Stringer’s in­tro­duc­tion of debu­tant Chris Dick­son re­vi­talised the Clarets in the sec­ond half. The home side’s Fri­day sign­ing spun had a great chance to open his ac­count for City but took too long to shoot af­ter Buchanan put him through.

Kane Haysman’s drilled ef­fort could have bro­ken the dead­lock but no-one could get a con­clu­sive touch as the game edged fur­ther to­wards a 0-0 draw.

But it was not to be for White­hawk side as Corn­hill stole the win­ner in the 80th minute – smash­ing home from close range. STAR MAN: Thomas Stewart (White­hawk) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
