Chalfont's cup exploits were ended for the season as they fell prey to a strong Dulwich Hamlet side that scored three sublime goals while resisting any efforts to put them under pressure.
Saints have developed a recent habit of starting quickly, grabbing an early goal and then consolidating. Saturday saw that torn up and they were on the back foot for long periods.

Impressive Saints tick all the boxes
Saints 3 Lansiquot 3, Hedley 12, Wood OG 21
Aylesbury United 0
Southern League Division One Central (Tuesday 28 October)
This was a win that Saints needed for many reasons so it was a joyous Mill Meadow that witnessed an impressive Saints performance to wrap up a convincing win to secure an important three points while boosting confidence ahead of their FA Trophy game at the weekend at Dulwich Hamlet.
Saints couldn't have hoped for a better start as Aaron Lansiquot got things going in the third minute when he bulldozed through the Ducks defence to net past the flapping keeper.

A Hard Earned Point
Barton Rovers 1 Vincent 22
Saints 1 Hedley 41
Southern League Division One Central (Saturday 25 October)
After the previous three games in the cup against the same opponents, the Saints were back in league action with a trip to Barton Rovers on Saturday.
There was significant confusion from the Saints support with many wondering why we were playing Barton Rovers and not AFC Hayes, having become so familiar with our opponents in the last seven days.
This was to turn out to be a hard earned point for Chalfont with neither side deserving to take away the three points.

Saints Through in the FA Trophy
AFC Hayes 0
Saints 1 Ailey 71
FA Trophy Preliminary Round Replay (Tuesday 21 October)
It was the third time in eight days that Saints and AFC Hayes were to meet, and in a cup that both teams were eager to progress to the next round in, it was always going to be a tight game as the previous result had shown.
A start for Daniel Ailey and Terrell Lewis saw Chalfont field an attacking team and opt for a 4-3-3 formation for the night's game. It wasn't long before this attacking threat from the Saints began to show.
