Abington 3 Great Chishill 2
GREAT Chishill ended their season with an entertaining away defeat at Abington.
The visitors got off to a bad start, when defender Mark Burrows gave away a penalty.
But Burrows made amends when his free-kick was met by Jamie Dunsden, who headed in at the far post.
Chishill took a deserved lead, with Steve McGee beating the Abington keeper from 20 yards.
But it was short-lived, as Abington found the back of the net just before half time.

In the second half, Chishill made a number of changes, with goalkeeper Ian Gallagher moving up front, and going close with two long-range efforts.
But any hopes of a Chishill winner were dashed with just minutes on the clock, when Abington snatched a late goal.
