SEYMOUR AT THE DOUBLE
On another history making afternoon, Parkway came back from two goals down to pick up a point on their debut in Step 3 and the Southern Premier League.
Chesham United made the long trip to a sunny Bolitho Park on the opening day of season in what was a competitive game against one of the league’s new comers. The spoils were shared at the end of a pulsating fixture, one which proved to be an excellent advert for the league.
There were no lethargic Chesham legs after the long coach journey as they made a bright start to the game forcing a free kick which Parkway keeper Kyle Moore had to palm over. Early Pressure from The Generals eventually told as Jeanmal Prosper pounced on 17 minutes to finish after Parkway failed to clear a corner. Chesham had most of the first half with Parkway eventually finding their feet as the half progressed, finishing the half stronger and creating a couple of good chances themselves.
Parkway came out strong for the second half but on 52 minutes it was Chesham who broke away and doubled their advantage through Jordan Edwards. The Plymouth outfit looked to be out of it but a brace from Ben Seymour scoring on 69 and 80 minutes levelled the scores. Both teams looked to get a winner in the final stages only for desperate defending from both sides keeping the scores level and Chesham having a strong shout for a penalty waved away.
An enthralling and entertaining game with the draw being a fair result.
