Chesham need to pick themselves up again after a disappointing Easter

First published in Sport by

CHESHAM United will have to pick themselves up for a Bucks Cup Final and the Southern League promotion play-offs after their title ambitions imploded over Easter.

Andy Leese's men won 13 games in a row to give themselves a chance of reeling in Premier Division leaders Hemel Hempstead in the final week, but a 1-0 defeat at Poole Town last Thursday broke their stride and another 1-0 defeat to Stourbridge on Saturday handed the title to Hemel.

That made Monday's trip to Hemel academic, but nearly 2,000 fans turned out to see the champions beat the challengers 2-1 with former Chesham captain Danny Talbot scoring the winner against his former club.

But Chesham still have everything to play for.

They take on Beaconsfield SYCOB in the Bucks Cup Final at Windsor tomorrow, and after finishing their league campaign at home to Weymouth on Saturday they have a home play-off semi-final to look forward to.

They will take on either Poole, Hungerford, Stourbridge or St Albans.
