Harston 1987 0 Great Chishill 5

CHISHILL continued their end-of-season revival with an away-day trouncing of struggling Harston.

Playing the offensive from the off, it took the visitors only 15 minutes to make a breakthrough, when Jonathan Drury's brilliant chip found its way over Harston's stranded keeper.

Gary Radford then got his name on the scoresheet, latching on to a long through ball and coolly rolling the ball into the net.

The goal gave Radford even more confidence, and his pace and awareness caused the hosts no end of problems.

And when Steve McGee's excellent cross came into the box, it was Radford who was on the end of it, with a thumping half-volley.

McGee turned goalscorer moments later, and finding room in the box, fired home from close range.

With a comfortable lead, the visitors' efforts in the second half were a little laboured and allowed Harston more time with the ball - they even hit the bar with one 20 yard effort.

However, Chishill continued to carve their own openings, with man-of-the-match Radford setting up Russell Drury, who beat his marker and curled a left-foot strike for goal number five.
