Preview: Chesham United

All you need to know ahead of tonight’s Berks and Bucks FA County Senior Cup Final…

2 May 2018

MK Dons face Chesham United at Stadium MK later this evening to decide the winner of the 2017/18 Berks and Bucks FA County Senior Cup.

Edu Rubio's side welcome Chesham United to Stadium MK later today, although, the Dons will be classed as the away side for the purpose of the competition.

Rubio's side overcame Slough Town in the Semi-Final to reach this stage, while Chesham ran out 2-0 winners over Woodley United.

A win for the Dons will them lift the Berks and Bucks County Senior Cup for the first time since 2007.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm.

Chesham United currently play their football in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier League Premier Division – level seven on the football pyramid. They currently sit eighth in the table having taken 74 points from their 46 games and have scored an impressive 85 goals over the course of their league campaign.

Lewis Toomey will be the danger man for the Generals with the forward scoring 17 goals this season. Elsewhere, Shane Bush has netted on 12 occasions, while Oran Swales also has seven goals to his name.

MK Dons secured their place in the Berks and Bucks FA County Senior Cup Final courtesy of a 4-1 victory over Slough Town at Arbour Park.

All four of the Dons' goals were scored in the first half, including Brandon Thomas-Asante's half an hour hat-trick. Giorgio Rasulo scored their fourth and final goal prior to the interval.
Chesham, meanwhile, advanced to the final of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup with their win over Woodley United.

Dave Pearce opened the scoring in the first-half as he fired home to Chesham the lead before minutes after the restart Jhai Dhillon doubled their lead.

Rubio's squad is set to include a mixture of first-team players and Under-18s, as has been the case previously with the Under-23s.

Aidan Nesbitt and Conor McGrandles are among the professionals who have featured in recent Under-23s fixtures while the likes of Giorgio Rasulo and Oran Jackson have been regulars this season.

There will be no Ben Tilney or Sam Nombe in tonight's clash as they are both cup-tied, while Brandon Thomas-Asante is nursing an injury.

 

Entry to tonight's tie is priced at £8 adults, £5 seniors, and £1 for Under-18s. Seating will be reserved, with tickets being sold on a block-by-block basis.

Dons defeated in County Cup

Chesham lift the Cup afte penalties...

2 May 2018

MK Dons were defeated on penalties by Chesham United as their counterparts took home the Berks and Bucks Senior County Cup trophy at Stadium MK.

The Dons took a two-goal lead in the first-half after Giorgio Rasulo converted from the spot before Robbie Muirhead doubled the advantage.

Chesham would then score twice in the second-half to send the game to penalties before eventually winning on spot kicks.

Edu Rubio’s side included a mixture of first-team players, Under-23 regulars and a sprinkle of Under-18s. Aidan Nesbitt, Conor McGrandles and Robbie Muirhead all featured in the Cup clash, while Giorgio Rasulo, Conor Furlong and Oran Jackson were also handed minutes. Matthew Sorinola, David Kasumu, Finn Tapp, Joey Evans and Alfie Jones also featured.

On their own turf, it was only natural that the Dons would take control of the game from the offset as both Muirhead and Nesbitt went close within the opening five minutes.

Muirhead, who looked full of confidence, then attempted to lop Hafed Al-Droubi from 40-yards. His effort looked to have caught the Chesham keeper off-guard before he tipped over for a corner.

It was Nesbitt who was next to try his luck after he latched onto Kasumu’s lofted pass before curling his strike into the arms of Al-Droubi.

With 10-minutes on the clock, Chesham had their first chance of the game as David Pearce’s dangerous cross was turned behind at the far post by Joe Evans.

The ebb-and-flow nature of the game continued as Conor McGrandles drove the Dons forward before Nesbitt’s powerful strike rippled the side netting.

Muirhead was next to try his luck as Al-Droubi denied the Scotsman after he was found by Rasulo’s perfectly weighted pass. Nesbitt then attempted to pick out Muirhead with his floated cross only for Murphy to head clear.

Chesham’s first clear shot on goal came with 20-minutes  of the game gone when Shane Bush’s dipping volley deflected wide off Finn Tapp.

Nesbitt continued to provide an outlet for the Dons as his attempted lop shaved the post on its way wide after the Scottish winger was picked out by Kasumu.

On 33 minutes McGrandles drove into the penalty area before he was bundled over by Adam Watkins, referee Sunny Gill was left with no other option than to award a penalty. Rasulo took on penalty-taking duties and hammered home to give his side the lead. 0-1.

5 minutes before the break Rubio’s side had their second of the game. Rasulo left two defenders for dead before his shot pushed into the path of Muirhead who smashed home from 6-yards. 0-2.

It was almost three minutes into the second-half as Sorinola’s cross was turned behind after good work on the left from Nesbitt.

The Dons went close yet again when McGrandles, who looked to drive forward whenever in possession, found Muirhead on the left, whose cross was headed narrowly over by Rasulo.

To their credit, Chesham continued to put pressure on the Dons defence and were rewarded in the 53rd minute. Jones produced a stunning save to deny Pearce only for the Chesham striker to convert the rebound and reduce the deficit. 1-2.

The Dons almost restored their two goal advantage immediately with Furlong’s strike going just wide from Sorinola’s cross.

Chesham should probably have equalised on 72 minutes after Oran Swales headed over from four-yards.

Substitute Liam Sole looked to spark life into the Dons attack with the youngster going close twice within a matter of minutes.

Robbie Muirhead came within an inch of sealing the trophy for his side. He attempted to connect with Jay Bird's low ball but can't get enough on it to divert it home.

With the game entering its sixth minute of added time Murphy headed home from close range to send the game to penalties. 2-2.
