Steeple Morden 3

Great Chesterford Res 1

STEEPLE Morden moved into the top four with victory over Great Chesterford Reserves.

The three points would have been secured even more comfortably if their finishing had been as clinical as usual but Kenny Watters' team hit the woodwork on five occasions.

Charlie Prothero headed a Martyn Lees corner against the underside of the crossbar after only five minutes before Matt Chapman opened the scoring on 16 minutes.

Craig Richardson picked out Chapman with a long pass and the midfielder took one touch before stylishly drilling it into the bottom corner.

An error by Laurence Harrison allowed the visitors to equalise but he showed his class in the remainder of the game by putting in a faultless performance.

Skipper Dom Holt was unlucky to strike the upright with a sharp hit and he saw a spectacular scissor kick go just wide. The normally prolific Ben Holt also put two good chances wide and strike partner Lees was denied by a great save.

The visitors started the second half brighter but did not seriously trouble Andy Smith in the Steeple goal.

With 20 minutes left, Dom Holt restored the lead with a perfectly placed free kick and the points were wrapped up soon after when Lees scored his 10th of the campaign.

Steeple: Smith, Richardson, Harrison, Jarman, Donald (G Collins), Chapman, Prothero, D Holt, Morris (Parr), Lees, B Holt.
