Chesham secured their fifth consecutive league win to move up to sixth in the table thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory over Bishop's Stortford.

There was a strong wind which Bishop’s Stortford had in their favour in the first half, and they took control of the game early on. In the eighth minute Darren Foxley got to the by-line on the visitors’ left but crossed the ball slightly behind Jamie Cureton whose effort was easily saved by Harry Isted. 

Cureton then tried an angled shot that was tipped away by Isted, then the keeper touched over a shot by Jason Williams from Marvel Ekpiteta’s magnificent pull-back.

On 39 minutes, the visitors took the lead when Cureton brought down a bouncing ball and scored with a speculative shot which flew over the advancing Isted and into the roof of the net. 

In the last minute of the half, Cureton crossed from the right to Williams who could not turn the ball in from beyond the far post.

In the 57th minute, Chesham equalised when Lewis Toomey hammered home from 12 yards. 

Nine minutes later, the Generals got a rather fortuitous winner when David Hutton took a corner on the left, and the wind carried the ball straight into the net just inside the far post over Tyler McCathy to make it nine unbeaten for Jon Meakes’ improving side.
