The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN PREMIER SOUTH - By Nick Wil­son

A CON­TENTIOUS match at the Cam­rose saw Che­sham win by the odd goal in five and the of­fi­cials draw the ire of the home crowd.

Af­ter a slow be­gin­ning the vis­i­tors took the lead as Eoin Casey rose at the far post to head home a cor­ner Bas­ingstoke ar­gued should have been a goal kick.

The goal opened the match up and the hosts quickly lev­elled, Sam Ar­gent peel­ing off his man to glance home Zi­dan Ak­ers' cross at the far post.

Che­sham had chances as Bradley Clay­ton blazed off tar­get and Dean Stow cleared an­other Casey header off the line and the Drag­ons took ad­van- tage, Ar­gent feed­ing Ben Wright who slot­ted coolly past Ben Goode.

Af­ter Wright lifted a shot over early in the sec­ond half Che­sham took con­trol, Steve Brown tak­ing his chance to head home be­fore Ronny Mfinda latched onto a de­flected shot to con­vert from close range as the hosts protested the lack of an off­side flag.

Home fans were fur­ther in­censed as Ar­gent re­ceived a straight red card for a strong tackle on David Sota, the ref­eree over­rul­ing his as­sis­tant to send him off.

The Drag­ons had late chances, Sam Dead­field whis­tled a shot just wide but Che­sham saw out time to col­lect all three points.

STAR MAN: Eoin Casey (Che­sham) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
