Chesham United Man of the Match: Kieran Murphy

Chesham made a tame exit from the FA Cup against their opponents from the Isthmian League South Central Division. Chertsey scored an early goal from a free kick and Chesham rarely looked like pulling back the deficit. There were three changes to the starting eleven, all enforced with Lewis Rolfe suspended and Tosh Gallimore and Zak Joseph both injured. However Isaiah Jones was able to return after missing four matches, and there were recalls for Eoin Casey and Deese Kasinga. Rolfe’s absence means that no Chesham player has featured in all nine matches this season.

Chertsey are unbeaten this season and scored the game’s only goal on 14 minutes.  Chertsey were awarded a free kick 25 yards out, and Andy Crossley lifted the ball over the wall and into the net at the near post although Sam Beasant got a hand to it.  Both sides tried to play attacking football but defences dominated and there was not a single effort on goal in the rest of the half.

In the second half Chesham began to display greater urgency, and on 56 minutes Jaden Thompson-Brissett ran on to Bradley Clayton’s through ball but keeper Nick Jupp rushed out to clear.  Shortly afterwards Yasin Ben Al-Mhanni’s 30-yard free kick just cleared the bar.  Chesham’s best chance of the game came on 64 minutes, when Bradley Clayton’s right-wing corner came through a crowd of players to Kyle Davison-Gordon who swung his leg at the ball but completely missed his kick.  In the next minute a neat move by the home side led to Ashley Lodge’s shot which Sam Beasant saved, and Jake Baxter’s follow-up went wide.  However the home side were largely content to sit on their lead with Chesham rarely posing a threat.  Chesham pushed Mark Kirby up front late on, and in stoppage time had one last chance when a left-wing move ended with Yasin Ben Al-Mhanni shooting tamely wide from the edge of the area.
