Chesham United Man of the Match: Luke Heneghan

Chesham moved off the bottom of the table for the first time after this convincing win.  Chesham were already a goal to the good when Dorchester’s Callum Rose was sent off in the last minute of the first half, and after that Chesham took command and sealed the win with the aid of some fine finishing. Luke Heneghan made his first start for the club after being ineligible for the FA Trophy tie at Worthing, and David Sota was replaced at left-back by debutant Luke Warner-Eley, who signed from Barton Rovers the day before.

Playing on an artificial surface for the third Saturday out of four, Chesham could have scored in the opening minute when Ryan Blake won the ball on the right and crossed to Dave Pearce who side-footed the ball past keeper Kingsley Latham but also past the post.  Chesham had the better of the early stages but had a let-off in the eighteenth minute, when Cameron Murray’s cross-shot was blocked by Ben Goode and Ben Seymour’s follow-up came back off the bar before Goode was able to dive on the ball.  Chesham came back and two minutes later Luke Heneghan’s pass sent Ryan Blake clear but Joshua Bailey got in a last-ditch tackle to save the home side.  At the other end Ben Goode dived to his right to push away a shot from Antonio Diaz, but Chesham were looking the more dangerous.  On 28 minutes Jefferson Louis squared the ball to Luke Heneghan, who netted with a rising drive into the roof of the net to give Chesham the lead.  In the last minute of normal time a challenge by Callum Rose led to a flare-up in which Rose lashed out and caught Lewis Rolfe with his arm, and was shown two yellow cards then a red when he could have been given a straight red for the second incident.

Chesham came out strongly in the second half and Luke Heneghan set up Jefferson Louis for a shot that flew just wide.  However two minutes later Louis muscled his way into the area and shot past the advancing keeper to make it 2-0.  Chesham were now in total command and Jerri Maja crossed from the left to Ryan Blake who shot wide of the far post.  On 74 minutes Dave Pearce crossed from the left to Jerri Maja, who scored Chesham’s third with a low drive.  Chesham were able to rest Kieran Murphy and switch Lewis Rolfe to the centre of defence, while Bradley Clayton also came on as a substitute after missing five matches through injury.  On 80 minutes Jon-Jo Bates came forward on the overlap and scored with a low drive just inside the far post for Chesham’s fourth, then three minutes later Luke Heneghan made it 5-0 with a spectacular long-range effort into the top corner.  That goal meant that Chesham had doubled their total of league goals for the season in one game, and was also enough to take Chesham off the bottom of the table on goal difference.  Chesham eased off and Kyle Egan broke forward and pulled the ball back for sub Ashley Pope, who shot past Ben Goode but wide of the far post.   However Chesham came close to adding to their tally late on when Luke Warner-Eley shot just over, then Jerri Maja got in down the left but his shot was matched by a fine save from Kingsley Latham in the home goal.
