  1 Dan Green Chesham looked to have this game in the bag after leading 2-0 at half-time, but Berkhamsted fought back to force a draw in an entertaining encounter.

Chesham took the lead in the third minute when Calum Woodcock headed in Josh Faulkner’s cross.  Woodcock had two more efforts just off target, while Berko wasted a good chance with a shot straight at Dan Green.  Woodcock was narrowly off target with two further efforts, but on 25 minutes Jazz Pritchard rounded the keeper and Woodcock eventually forced the ball over the line to make it 2-0.  Berko came closest to scoring when George Layton turned a cross onto his own bar.

The home team pulled a goal back on 48 minutes and began to pressurise for the first time.  On the hour Charlie Walker turned a right-wing cross into his own net for the equaliser.  Dan Green was then forced to block when an opposing striker was clean through, but Chesham regrouped and could have retaken the lead but Jay Elstar-Richmond’s effort hit the post.  George Layton and Calum Woodcock came close, while Berko also had their moments but missed two good chances late on.  In stoppage time Josh Faulkner’s shot was tipped away by the opposing keeper.
