Chishill kick on in Junior Challenge Cup
The Vine 1 Great Chishill 6
GREAT CHISHILL made easy work of the windy conditions on Saturday to progress in the Junior Challenge Cup.
Playing against the wind in the first half they created all the early chances but some good goalkeeping kept the scores level.
Chishill eventually got a deserved opening goal when Oli Gardiner curled in a cross from the left that was met by Connor Tidey who finished with a neat half volley.
The lead was soon doubled when Gary Radford lobbed the ‘keeper to finish off a sweeping counter attack, and the visitors went in at the break three goals to the good after Lee Smith slotted home from the edge of the box.

The second half was another one-sided affair with George Kew heading against the post early on while Chishill also had two strong penalty appeals waved away.
They waited until the 70th minute for the fourth goal, Radford turning in his second from Smith’s cut back. Radford then broke clear to claim his hat-trick before The Vine responded with a late consolation.
