League leaders take honours
Published 07/04/14



A DISAPPOINTING first half performance saw Hambleden slump to another defeat against Wycombe and District Senior Division leaders Spartans on Saturday.

Conceding three goals in the opening period left Hambleden too much to do and although a second half spirited performance saw them claw two goals back it wasn’t enough.

Hambleden started well and caused the away team problems in midfield and defence. Simon Hathaway soon created an opening forcing himself clear with a run from the halfway line but lifted his shot high over.

After six minutes and with chances aplenty for the home team Simon Hathaway again worked hard to get on the end of his brother’s goal kick and when well placed lofted another shot over the bar.

Continuing the early pressure Chris Brunning advanced for a corner and forced a save from the Spartans keeper.


On 15 minutes Spartans took the lead when a free kick was headed beyond Ross Hathaway in the Hambleden goal. Soon after Spartans made it 2-0 with a quick breakaway move.

Spartans went 3-0 up from the penalty after Dawson had handled in the area.

Five minutes later Spartans were awarded another penalty for a shove on one of their players but this time the spot kick was wide of the mark.

Hambleden regained composure and were denied twice before the interval.

Duane Brian was substituted for Paul Reading at half-time while Mike Wilkins was introduced and Matt Cook withdrawn as Hambleden doubled their efforts.

With 25 minutes to go Ben Chivers and Ryan Kemp fashioned the ball over the Spartans defence. Paul Reading latched on to the through ball, settled and lobbed coolly into the back of the net from the edge of the area.

With Spartans tiring Hambleden began to find space. Dean Kemp replaced Adam North and immediately found brother Ryan down the right. A weighted ball played in Simon Hathaway who flashed his shot wide from an angle with the Spartans keeper stranded.

With 10 minutes remaining a Macllenan corner found an unmarked Ryan Kemp drifting into the box who headed home.
