CHESHAM United completed a hat-trick of wins at The Meadow in the Southern Premier South after a 4-2 victory against Yate Town on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

The Generals have now won their last four league matches but been knocked off top spot by Poole Town, now in second position in the table and a point behind the leaders.

Yate took the lead when Sam Kamara was left free on the edge of the box and beat keeper Jonathan North to find the corner and score his first goal of the season after 16 minutes.

The visitors doubled their advantage as Britton, on loan from Bristol City, scored on his debut despite appearing to be in an offside position midway through the first half.

Chesham pulled a goal back when an absolute peach of a free-kick from Dave Pearce found the top corner and had the keeper stranded in the 27th minute.


The Generals levelled the scores as a brilliant cross into the box from Kyle Watson was prodded into the bottom corner by Karl Oliyide after 31 minutes.

The home team edged ahead when Mark Kirby thundered a header back across goal from a Pearce corner and a defender could only help the ball into the net when he should have cleared off the line on the hour.

Chesham secured all three points as brilliant work from Oliyide and Zak Joseph saw the two share a back-heeled pass for the former to finish with ease.

The Generals turn their attention to the League Cup and a first round tie at Aylesbury United from Division One Central on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Beaconsfield Town made it back-to-back wins in the league following their 2-0 victory against Blackfield & Langley on Saturday.

The Rams took the lead at Holloways Park when James McCluskey set up Brendan Matthew and he finished into the top corner.

The home side were dealt blow in the second half as Mayowa Balogun was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Beaconsfield however secured all three points in time added on when Tyrell Mitford latched onto a through ball and coolly lobbed the keeper.

The Rams remain second from bottom in the league table but are now just two points from safety.

Beaconsfield welcome Berkhamsted from Division One Central in round one of the League Cup on Tuesday (7.45pm).
