A trip to Buckinghamshire for round 34
By Rob Kershaw
The end of the season is now fast approaching, and as begin to draw to a close, we prepare to face the team against whom we started our journey in the Southern League Premier South.
Two goals from Ben Seymour rescued a point at Bolitho against Chesham United on the opening day of the season, but that promising day preceded a poor run of form that reminded the Yellows of just what a step up this league is.
Nonetheless, things have turned around massively since then, and the incredible mentality ingrained in the squad by Lee Hobbs is perennially plain to see and evidenced by our climb to 11th in the table.
We enter Tuesday night’s game off the back of a fine 4-0 thumping of Harrow Borough – our third win in five – which helped us to take another stride closer to mathematical safety.
On the face of it, Chesham are sitting pretty in fourth at present, but that picture is tainted by the fact that they are winless in their last seven, with their last home win arriving at the beginning of last month.
In a paper battle between the league table and the form book, there has never been a clear winner this season, so it is anyone’s to take home as we head to Buckinghamshire.
The 2-2 draw in August was the only meeting between the two sides. The return fixture was due to take place in December but was pushed back due to the weather.
Just under three hours up the M5 and M4 take you past Bristol, Swindon, and Reading, before the A355 takes you up to the Meadow.
Seats remain available on the supporters’ coach – just email [email protected] for more details!
Temperatures should remain mild, while rain is not expected to play a part on Tuesday night.
