Chesham United 2 Hitchin Town 0

Tuesday, October 4 2011

Hitchin’s poor run of results at the Meadow continued as two second–half goals gave Chesham a 2-0 win.


20- Frendo’s volley is well saved by Chesham keeper Gore

46- Wales’ cross is headed home by Watters at the far post 1-0

72- Talbot’s 30-yard free kick bounces over Bennett for Chesham’s second goal 2-0

Weather: Autumnal, dry

Pitch: Good, firm

Attendance: 315

For the 10th consecutive visit, Hitchin found the Meadow is not a good grazing ground for the Canaries. An all too familiar scoreline meant that you now have to go back to 1993 to find the last occasion when Hitchin won at Chesham.

It could have been different – if Hitchin had taken their chances when they were in charge. The first half was an even affair, but the Canaries just edged it.

Zak Burke created an early chance for John Frendo, but his shot flashed wide. Tom Pepper also went close, but the best opportunity fell to Frendo, who saw his volley well saved by Chesham goalkeeper Shane Gore.

Optimism at the break gave way to gloom, however, as Chesham opened the scoring barely a  minute into the restart. A cross by Steve Wales from the right was met at the far post by Chris Watters, leaving Hitchin to ask questions about marking as he scored with a firm header.

Chesham took control and a long range shot by Leon Archer threatened to add a second goal. Hitchin hit back and a volley by Luke Gregson – after a knock-down by Ieuan Lewis.

But 18 minutes from time, Chesham sealed  victory when a 30-yard free-kick by Danny Talbot took on the life of a bouncing bomb and deceived Martin Bennett.

Hitchin tried to retaliate and both Gregson -  with an 81st minute free kick – and a volley past the post for Frendo, threatened to pull a goal back.  And in the closing seconds, Jack Nelly, who had a sound 90 minute run-out, went close from a corner.
