Five Chesham United players recently reached playing milestones that were recognised before the game with Bedford yesterday with presentations from chairman Brian McCarthy . . .
Dave Fotheringham 350 appearances
Amazingly it's over a decade since Dave Fotheringham first made his debut for Chesham in a 3-1 Isthmian Premier win over Boreham Wood on 17th August 2002. Our longest serving player, who originally came through the ranks of the mini league and Chesham United Youth, was recognised for reaching the 350 appearance mark.
Danny Talbot 250 appearances
This season is Club captain Danny Talbot's sixth at The Meadow and he recently reached his 250 game milestone. Danny's first fixture as a Chesham United player came in a 2-1 home defeat against Rothwell Town on 21st August 2007.
Steve Wales 150 appearances
The injured Steve Wales was helping with the Spartan League side as theydrew 2-2 at Welwyn Garden City yesterday so was not present. Steve has also been recognised for reaching 150 games in just over three seasons with the Generals since making his debut in a 3-0 Southern League Midland Division home win against Barton Rovers in August 2009.
Rob Bartley 100 appearances
Rob's Chesham United centenary came with today's 2-2 draw against Bedford Town. Rob memorably made his debut as a substitute in a 3-0 win at Truro City on the opening day of the 2010/2011 season on 14th August 2010. He went on to retain that position.
James Potton 100 appearances
James celebrated his 100th appearance at Tuesday's draw with Hemel Hempstead Town and marked the day yesterday with our opening goal in the 2-2 Non-League Day draw with Bedford. JP made his debut in the 1-1 home draw with Stourbridge on 18th September 2010 having stepped up from the reserve set up.
