HEMEL HEMPSTEAD TOWN 4 2 CHIPPENHAM TOWN – Sat 4th Aug 2018

The Bluebirds suffered their first opening day defeat since losing 0-2 at Banbury United in August 2013.


The Bluebirds suffered their first opening day defeat since losing 0-2 at Banbury United in August 2013.
Their Vauxhall Road hoodoo continued as they again went down to defeat at a ground they last won at in April 2011.
After falling behind to an early goal the Bluebirds hit back to lead with a quick double from Karnell Chambers, but Hemel fought back to lead with goals either side of the break.
Karl Oliyede gave the Tudors a fourth minute lead when strike partner Steve Cawley latched on to a long clearance before setting Oliyede up. Home skipper Jordan Parkes then hit a free kick against a post whilst the Bluebirds Nat Jarvis failed to hit the target from a promising position. Chambers equalised on twenty five minutes when he raced clear and slid home after a good through ball from Josh Smile.
Chambers hit his second when the home defence failed to deal with a Jack Compton corner and the young striker fired home.
It was then the turn of the Tudors Scott Shulton to hit the bar whilst home stopper Laurie Walker made a point blank save from Jarvis.
Cawley pulled the home side level five minutes before the interval after the Bluebirds defence failed to clear and three minutes after the break Oliyede restored Hemel’s lead as he picked his spot past Will Puddy.
After withstanding Chippenham pressure as Walker twice saved Will Richards headed efforts whilst Chambers hit the bar, Hemel broke away two minutes from time and substitute Alex Osborn took advantage of a mistake by Chippenham substitute Mike Jones and although his initial shot hit the post he converted the rebound.
