Amersham Town 1 - 3 Shefford Town & Campton
Spartan South Midlands League: Division One.
It is probably best to draw a veil over Amersham Town’s recent results. Suffice to say that they have conceded fewer than three goals in only one of their last seven games. Although they are scoring reasonably freely the ‘goals against’ column provides a ongoing hurdle.
This was a game full of incident and Shefford’s Jonny McNamara was a constant threat to the Amersham defence. On twenty minutes he was put through but his shot, as Amersham keeper Oliver Keil came out, grazed the near post. At the other end Harry Bennett forced his way through the middle but Reece Lewis in the Sherford goal was well placed to gather his shot. Town’s best move of the half then released Alfie Hall on goal but Lewis blocked his drive with his legs.
The goal which Shefford had been threatening arrived on thirty eight minutes. Again McNamara had a shooting chance which Keil blocked but the rebound fell to Ash Ingham who fired home.
Amersham came much more into the game in the second half. After only two minutes a Nick Kerley shot seemed destined for the top corner when Lewis, at full stretch, touched it over the bar. However, the goal Amersham’s improved play deserved arrived on fifty five minutes when Bennett was first to a Kerley cross to score from close range.
The game was then well contested until, with six minutes left, a long ball from Shefford bisected the Amersham defence for McNamara to slip it past Keil. The final goal arrived five minutes later when, as Amersham went in search of an equaliser, McNamara was left unmarked to score from a breakaway..
