MATCHWEEK FIFTEEN - REVIEW

Only the one fixture went ahead on Wednesday in a week where Storm Jorge had battered

the country. Luckily there was no shortage of excitement and Chesham United and Swindon

Supermarine put on a show for us.


The sides drew 2-2 in a game where both teams had lots of chances. Chesham opened the

scoring through a back post tap in from Deryn Fowler but Swindon managed to level things

up not long after. James Kennett was able to bundle in a scrappy goal from a free kick that

Chesham couldn’t deal with and the scores were level. Swindon seemed to have the

momentum behind them and after creating some very good chances, they made one count

when Declan Simmons produced a great piece of control and wonderful finish to give

Supermarine the lead. The Generals bounced back though and found an equaliser before

half time after Callum Gerrard was able to capitalise on a mix up between the Swindon

defence and goal keeper. Both sides were pushing hard for a winner in the second half and

the goalkeepers were forced into producing some excellent saves, but neither side could

find that all important third goal.



Congratulations to Swindon Supermarine student, Jay Haydon who was named as ‘Player of

the Week!’ after impressing in #MatchweekFifteen. This is also the second time in three weeks that Haydon has earned himself this honour. Also, well done to Charlie McBride (SwindonSupermarine), James Kennett (Swindon Supermarine), Alex Dalby (Chesham United). Lewis Nicholls (Chesham United) and Ryan Scrivens (Chesham United) who were also nominated.
