Lilies stretch perfect start to season to five games in Kershaw Senior A
It was mixed fortunes for Chatteris Town Football Club last weekend, writes Dan Mason.
The Lilies stretched their perfect start to the season to five games after a 2-1 victory at Hundon. Gary Smith netted a third brace of the season, making it seven goals for him so far to remain joint-top in Kershaw Senior A.
The Reserve and A teams suffered narrow defeats in the first West Street double-header of the season.
A tight contest was decided by a deflected Daniel Davidson effort on 76 minutes but the second-string saw clear opportunities go astray.
Ben Green arguably had the Reserves’ best chance of the game, misjudging a pinpoint cross from the lively Josh Brittin.
Brittin went close with a rasping drive from distance, but Sean McKay’s men started their Division 1B campaign with defeat.
Roger Manchett and Adam Whiting’s A team finished on the wrong end of a five-goal thriller with Guyhirn, having come from behind in Division 4C via Richard Allen two, including a penalty.
On Saturday, the Lilies travel to second-placed Over Sports in the league, the Reserves entertain Eaton Socon Res in the first round of the Creake Charity Shield and the A’s host Cherry Hinton A in the Cambs Lower Junior Challenge Cup (all 3pm).
