Waitrose Man of the Match in association with the Bucks Examiner: Tashan Dwyer

It says a lot about the young talent at Chesham that the club were able to field a virtual reserve side and still advance to the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup final. Aylesbury may have been depleted but it is still an achievement to win with ten debutants, two of whom are still in the youth team and eight of whom had played for the reserves the night before.

Of the team that played last Saturday at Cambridge all the starting eleven were rested, while two of the substitutes (Inih Effiong and Jeanmal Prosper) were ineligible as they were not with the club when the original tie was scheduled eight weeks ago. After an even opening twenty minutes, Aylesbury came close when Greg Williams’ low shot produced a fine save by Haydn Dodge low to his right. Chesham had a couple of moments of danger with Tashan Dwyer crossing just ahead of Aston Goss, then Goss was just beaten to a through ball by home keeper Jack Sillitoe. Chesham took the lead on 31 minutes with an excellent goal, Aston Goss playing a fine diagonal ball from the right to Tashan Dwyer who scored with an excellent first-time volley.

Early in the second half the rain mercifully eased, and five minutes after the restart Jason Blackett’s shot beat Haydn Dodge but came back off the post. Stacey Field then pulled the ball back from the by-line and Blackett’s close-range shot was cleared off the line by Daniel Brathwaite. However just after the hour mark Stephan Hamilton set up Tashan Dwyer who ran through to stroke the ball past Sillitoe for Chesham’s second. Three minutes later Dwyer beat the defence to Will Orchard’s pass and shot goalwards, and the ball hit Sillitoe and bounced up for Bobby Devyne to head in to make it 3-0. That killed the game as a contest although Jack Wood’s header from a Paul Edgeworth free kick clipped the top of the bar, and Keith Williams’ quickly-taken free kick flew just wide. Five minutes from time Blackett set up Joey Acheampong but Daniel Brathwaite got in a saving tackle, then in the third minute of stoppage time Chesham failed to clear a corner and Acheampong prodded the ball over the line for a late consolation.
