Hitchin Town 1 Chesham United 3

Monday, February 25 2013

It was a familiar story for Hitchin against Chesham as a team  with just too much experience and know-how left Top Field with all three points.

The Canaries could have few complaints for Chesham looked the stronger team throughout, certainly among the best to visit Hitchin during this season.

Hitchin had an early chance when Michael Noone’s free kick caused some panic in the Chesham defence and Callum Donnelly shot over the bar. But it was Chesham that took the lead in the 23rd minute, James Potton riding three tackles before shooting home from 15 yards. Just before the goal, Martin Bennett had denied former Hitchin striker Inih Effiong, who was a menace for the Hitchin defence throughout the game.

There was a blow for Hitchin when Donnelly had to leave the field after colliding with Shane Gore the Chesham goalkeeper. Gore came to his team’s rescue when he tipped over a 20 yard shot from Jhai Dhillon.

Hitchin drew level in the 53rd minute from the penalty spot, John Frendo scoring after he had ben brought down by Gore.  But the goal failed to inspire the Canaries and Chesham gradually took control. A free kick by Toby Little went close to restoring Chesham’s lead and Effiong shot over after outpacing the Hitchin defence.

Ten minutes from time, Chesham scored again, Dave Fotheringham’s shot was deflected into the net by Lawrie Stewart. And it was no surprise in added time when Effiong took advantage of s defensive slip and ran on to score the visitors’ third goal.
