Chesham United began life after Jon Meakes with a vital league win as they won away at Farnborough 1-0 on Saturday.

Oron Swales scored the only goal of the game under the watchful eye of interim manager, Mark Swales, his father.

Swales slammed the ball home on 28 minutes after excellent work fromBradley Clayton presented him with the chance.

In the second half, the home side had numerous chances to try and get something from the match but a combination of heroic defending and wasteful finishing gave the Generals their first league win of what has been a tricky campaign so far.

Despite the win, Swales’ future as manager remains uncertain. 

Finance director Peter Brown said: “We are very grateful to Mark Swales and Scott McGleish who will once again be in charge until such time as a new permanent manager is in place. Staying in the Premier Division is of paramount importance to the club.”

They now turn their attentions to their home clash against Salisbury on Saturday, who sit mid-table (kick off 3pm).
