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.
