YATE TOWN 0 3 CHIPPENHAM TOWN – Sat 28th July 2018
The Bluebirds rounded off an unbeaten pre-season with victory over Yate Town
The Bluebirds rounded off an unbeaten pre-season with victory over Yate Town, but manager Mark Collier will know the real business starts next Saturday when the Bluebirds travel to last season's play-off contenders Hemel Hempstead Town.
The match was Chippenham's third successive game against EVO-STIK Southern League South South opposition and proved to be their most impressive against a lively Yate side.
Karnell Chambers opened the scoring just before the interval, when the officials ruled that his shot had crossed the line after the home stopper had failed to gather cleanly, it was his third goal in three successive matches.
On the hour mark Mike Jones rounded off a fine move as he fired home the Bluebirds second.
The scoring was completed five minutes before time when substitute Nick McCootie ran from just inside the Yate half, holding off two defenders, before slotting home.
Chippenham: Will Puddy, George Rigg, Kieran Parselle, Mike Jones, Greg Tindle, Will Richards, Josh Smile, Matt Smith, Nat Jarvis, Jack Compton, Karnell Chambers subs: Andy Sandell, Callum Gunner, Dean Evans, Nick McCootie, Adam House
