Blank day for Saints

Kettering Town  2     Solkhon 21, Ogbonna 72pen

Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central  (Saturday 29 November)

The Saints went into Saturday afternoon’s league visit to Kettering Town looking to make it seven consecutive league wins, and in Chalfont’s current winning and goalscoring form, there was no reason to think that they couldn't cause another upset to the current league leaders.

 

Having got the better of their opposition earlier in the season in knocking Kettering out of the FA Cup, there was understandable nerves amongst the Kettering support prior to kick-off, however come the final whistle it was hard to believe that the Saints, who haven't been able to stop scoring in the league recently, were silenced in front of goal.

Saints in perfect balance

Eighteen games into their fourth season in the Southern League Saints have achieved a perfect statistical balance in their league playing record.

Following their 2-1 win against Royston Town in midweek their record over nearly three and a half seasons is:

P 144   W 54  D 36   L 54   GF 230   GA 230

Late strike keeps Saints on winning trail

IMG 2335ACIt took a late goal to finally decide things but there was little doubt that a sixth successive league win for the resurgent Saints was the correct outcome.

On a soggy surface, made worse by constant rain in the second half, that took some of the flow out of the play but both sides made every effort to move the ball around and, by doing so, provided an entertaining game for the sparse crowd. 

Excellent Saints overrun Woods

A brace from striker Aaron Lansiquot saw Chalfont ease past the home side on Saturday’s away visit to Northwood, with the Saints collecting another three points in the league for a side that cannot stop scoring. 

 

Alan Hedley, after missing the Saints last league game for the first time this season, was back in the side, setting up the two goals that sealed the three points and silenced a disgruntled home side. 

Penalty woes for Saints

Saints  1     Stephenson

Chesham United  1    Blake

Chesham win 4-3 on penalties

Red Insure Cup Second Round  (Tuesday 18 November)

Keeper Shane Gore was the shoot-out hero for Chesham United as the Generals knocked Saints out of the Red Insure Cup.

Gore save Chalfont's fifth and final spot kick, from Kurt Morlese, to send his side through and a plucky Saints side spinning out.

Chalfont were already on the ropes in the shoot-out after Sam Grayley smashed their second spot kick off the crossbar, meaning successful penalties from Asen Valchev, Alan Hedley and Arjet Memishaj counted for little in the end.

Chesham, by contrast, kept their nerve to score all four through Toby Little, Dave Pearce, Simon Thomas and Darren Purse, meaning they didn't need to take their fifth.

It was the Southern Premier side who had taken the lead around the hour mark when Ryan Blake picked up the ball in midfield and went on a dazzling run into the area, skipping past a couple of desperate challenges before finishing from a tight angle.

But Saints were level within minutes when, with the Chesham back four appealing loudly for offside, Myles Stephenson ignored their shouts to bag his first goal for the club with a superb finish on the turn following a cross from the right.

Saints keeper Mikey Pearce them made three great stops, including a fingertip save from Little, meaning the game went straight to spot kicks without extra time, where the final dramas were to unfold.
