Cheshunt stretched their unbeaten run to 14 matches this afternoon with an emphatic 5-1 win over Corinthian-Casuals at The Stadium, Theobalds Lane.
The match started with a minutes silence for The Ambers former vice-chairman John Poole, who passed away recently and Cheshunt got off to a flying start as soon as the whistle blew for kick off. Jo Re’s early shot on 3 minutes was well saved by Danny Bracken in the Casuals goal and was a sign of what was to come. With both Amadou Kassarate and Rowan Liburd a continuing threat up front in the opening quarter of an hour before Liburd got the opening goal for The Ambers on 17 minutes when a goal mouth bundle was tapped in to open the scoring. Nine minutes later Liburd found himself with plenty of space and fired a shot past the outstretched Bracken for 2-0. It was then Reece Beckles-Richards turn nine minutes later when after a Casuals attack, Cheshunt broke away for Reece to take the ball thirty yards and shoot past Bracken to give Cheshunt a 3-0 lead at the break.
It only took seven minutes in the second half for the next goal when fan favourite Taylor Miles, who had been a constant torn in the Casuals defence managed to get onto the scoresheet and send the Cheshunt fans behind the goal wild. Following the fourth Cheshunt goal, Casuals made three substitutions, one of which, on 80 minutes was former Amber Nodirbek Bobomurdov who got a warm reception from the crowd. The subs looked to have made an improvement when The Casuals got a goal back in the 85th minute with a superb 20 yard strike from Kieron Cadogan. It was the Ambers who were to have the last say however, when, with the rain now pouring heavily onto the Stadium pitch, Rowan Liburd restored the four goal lead and whilst doing so finished off his hat-trick. The final whistle blew to rapturous scenes and keeps The Ambers play off hope well and truly alive.
