Chalvey Sports

UNBEATEN Chalvey Sports climbed to second and remain hot on the heels of Division Two East leaders Thame Rangers Development after thrashing Stokenchurch 6-2 on Saturday.

The visitors had made a disastrous start as they found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening quarter of an hour – Marvin Taylor and Christopher Baumohl with the Stokenchurch goals – but hit back in style to claim an emphatic win.

Jason Marney began the comeback in the 29th minute, and Chalvey were level before the break when Ryan Hazell scored in stoppage time.

The visitors went in front early in the second half when Richard Jeffery hit the back of the net, and it was 4-2 on 58 Kyle Rochford got on the scoresheet.

Just a minute late Chalvey were in complete control when Marney bagged his second, and Hazell followed his lead to complete the rout eight minutes from time.

The result takes Chalvey onto 17 points from their opening seven games, three points behind Thame but with four games in hand on the Oxfordshire side.

Chalvey Sports travel to Frontline in the Slough Town Challenge Cup tomorrow (1.30pm), before a mouth-watering home clash against Thame on Tuesday (7.45pm).
