Dunstable Town  2     Roache 1, Christie 79

Saints  1     Hallam 26

Calor League Division One Central  (Saturday 28 December)

If points were awarded for effort and commitment then Saints would have come away with something on Saturday. Instead, their inability to convert in front of goal again spelled their downfall.

In the reverse fixture back in August, Saints were well on the way to securing a point before Lee Roache stole the points for Dunstable with a goal deep into stoppage time. Since then, Dunstable have assumed leadership of the division and it was Roache who carried on where he left off when he headed in from a corner with barely a minute on the clock. 

Not the ideal start for Chalfont but they began to dominate the early exchanges and it was no surprise when Farai Hallam headed in a free kick to level the scores.

Chances were exchanged after the break but it took a speculative lob into the area on 79 minutes for substitute Bernard Christie to put the home side ahead. So Saints had to come back again and with Roache seeing red after two yellow cards, they had a man-advantage for the final stages but, despite strong calls for a penalty, they couldn't find a way through and so again tasted defeat after a performance that deserved more. 

Saints:  Michael Power-Simpson, Terrell Lewis, Ronayne Marsh-Brown (Anthony Lennon 83), Gareth Paxton, Farai Hallam, Alex Paine, Evandro Delgado (Romaine Walker 72), Alan Hedley, Leon Osei, Scott Fitzgerald (Danilson Vicente 70), Asen Valchev.

Daventry Town  1     Robinson 14

Calor League Division One Central  (Saturday 14 December)

Chalfont had reason to cheer on Saturday as they achieved what is probably their best league result of the season with a performance that would have defeated many other sides.

Daventry are no mugs; one of the title favourites and having enjoyed a strong run in the FA Cup will have arrived at Mill Meadow expecting to roll over a Saints side that has been struggling at home.

With Leon Osei returning to the front line Saints finally found a target man who can compete with central defenders and so Saints were able to see a focus for their attacks.  With Terrell Lewis slipping back into the full back role, the Saints back line looked solid enough but the lack that has evaded them all season continued to hold back after 14 minutes when an eagle-eyed linesman was able to see Ashley Robinson's effort from a corner cross the goal line through a crowd of players. The inevitable mountain that required climbing confronted Saints but at no time did they look overwhelmed and as half time arrived they were more than competing with an impressive Daventry side.

The expectation was that the visitors would turn up the heat after the restart  and they did move the ball quickly and accurately but it was Chalfont that slowly took control of proceedings. Alan Hedley was tireless in midfield, creating and seeing openings and three times Leon Osei was just short of levelling the scores as Daventry began to chase shadows. Romaine Walker, short on confidence, began to regain his touch and Danilson Vicente spurned a golden opportunity.

Chalfont's inability to find the target was in danger of spoiling a hard-working performance but on 75 minutes they were rescued by their standout player of the season, Gareth Paxton. A deep corner by Walker found Evandro Delgado at the far post and he held up the ball before feeding Paxton whose swerving shot back across goal flew into the net.

Although Daventry were always a threat, mainly through the dangerous Ross Oulton, it was Chalfont that looked the more likely winners as both sides pressed for the win in the final minutes. At the final whistle there was relief and pride from the home side and some undoubted frustration from the visitors who had expected more. 

Saints:  Michael Power-Simpson, Terrell Lewis, Anthony Lennon, Gareth Paxton, John Carroll, Alex Paine, Romaine Walker, Alan Hedley, Scott Fitzgerald, Leon Osei, Danilson Vicente (Evandro Delgado 72).

Attendance:  43     Star Player:  Alan Hedley
