Chesham Under 13s 8 - 2 Harefield Reds
Luke x 2
After 2 difficult Cup games against higher league opponents we where today back to League action , and another tough home game against Harefield who had won all 7 previous games including a 4-2 against us 3 weeks ago .
The boys made a fantastic start with Man of the Match Sam scoring a 30 yard worldie after 5 mins , this was the first of a Hatrick for Sam and a great performance again . Everyone played fantastically today , Luke and John using their pace and skill to cause our opponents trouble for the whole game . Having been 3-0 up in the Cup Last week and managing to lose on Pens , we where a little nervous with the same score line at halftime but the boys started the second half quickly and got the 4th with a great solo goal from Luke . Harefield are a good passing team and they did cause us a few problems but the boys where resiliant and deadly on the counter attack , and as they pushed to get back into the game the boys took advantage of the space left behind with some clinical finishing .
Only our second game in Div 3 and to beat the League Leaders like they did will give them great confidence going forward .
Thanks to Nader for Reffing and for the excellent support as usual .
Next week : Home v George green Juniors
Chesham Generals U13 3-1 Windsor
After an earlier convincing win against Windsor , the boys were a little over confident at kick off ..... and saw themselves 1-0 down after 1 min !
Having pulled back a scrappy equaliser they ambled to a 1-1 half time scoreline , the only talk at half time was ‘ we told you so ! ‘ , but the 2nd half started with a quick goal for the Generals and a much improved performance saw the boys dominate the half and grab a third with 5 mins to go . As the boys learnt In the first half confidence is great ..... over confidence not so good !
Brillaint support as always And thank you to Nader for taking on Ref duties .
Man of the match : Saihaj Gill
Next Up : Windsor ( again ) away 15 th October
Wendover 1- 3 Chesham Generals under 13s
Our first away game of the season and the boys managed to come away with 3 well earned points , today's game was by far the toughest so far but the boys dug in and got the result .
They started well getting a 2-0 lead in the first half but Wendover fought back after the break and pulled a goal back , it was a really close contest with both teams creating chances but they managed to score a 3rd with 10 mins to go to take off some of the pressure . Two excellent individual goals and one from a corner ( extremly rare for us !) and some resolute defending saw them through and they are now Top of table with 3 wins from 3 .
Next up Windsor at home in the Cup
Windsor Hawks 0-5 Chesham Generals u13s

Chesham United 11 - 1 Windsor Hawks
After winning our first game 9-1 the Generals followed up with an 11-1 home win today .
The boys played some fantastic football , this team has some very quick forward players and we again used that to our advantage today and played some excellent football especially in wide areas . We scored a number of very good team goals plus 2/3 cracking individual efforts .
Great start to the season from the Generals .
Big thank you to Andrew for taking over ref duties today and to Matt for running the line .
