Available for tomorrows fixture against Weymouth we launch our new improved match day magazine. Our award winning magazine was a hard act to follow but after many months of re design and exciting new features, articles and of course outstanding photographs we have what we believe something that is very special. So much copy that we have had to increase the number of pages from 44 to a whopping 60 pages. Yes 60 pages full of interesting reading, and the good news is we will hold the price at only £2-00p per copy. This is fantastic value and we ask everyone to purchase a copy of which will make the time and effort that goes into this publication worth while for all of the contributors. BUY ONE AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. This is real quality and we can confidently say probably the very best in non league football. "Please note our new match day magazine publications will NOT be released onto our news stand for at least 8 weeks AFTER publication"

Southern League Premier Division   CHESHAM UNITED      3         ST NEOTS TOWN      3         The two Chesham strikers had last season plundered 64 league goals between them in theSouthern League Premier Division before transferring to St Neots in the close season but neither playedagainst their former side with Drew Roberts (suspended) and Chris Dillon (injured).   However last season’s runners-up Chesham had replaced them very effectively with new striker Ryan Blake who scored three goals for them in a fourteen minutes first half spell to put his side in what seemed an insurmountable half time lead.  What was said in the St Neots dressing room at the break is not recorded but it certainly had the desired effect as St Neots came out firing on all cylinders to retrieve their three goals deficit and only be denied a winning goal deep into added time.   After their opening day victory at Hereford, St Neots made just the one enforced change to their starting line up with Matt Nolan coming in for the injured Dillon.   It was a first half that St Neots will be happy to forget.   They capitulated very quickly as the speedy Chesham attack cut the defence to shreds aided by some very sloppy defending under pressure.   As early as the second minute St Neots skipper Gavin Hoyte was happy to concede a corner and then Nathan Abbey had to sprint off his line to dive fearlessly at the feet of former Saint Simon Thomas who was clear on goal.   And the early pressure paid off on 16 minutes when Ryan Blake was allowed too much space and time to cleverly lob the ball over the goalkeeper from the near post after good work by Ashley Smith.   Abbey then had to dive full length to push away a stinging shot from the same Chesham player but after 24 minutes it was 2-0 as Thomas rounded Arthur Lee to cross for Ryan Blake to get his second goal.   St Neots efforts were spoiled by sloppy passing that was too often careless or ambitious and up to that point they had managed just two lengthy shots by Lewis Hilliard both of which were comfortably gathered by Shane Gore.   On the half hour Blake completed his hat trick after a bad mistake by Gavin Hoyte but it could have been worse for St Neots because before the break Blake unmarked at the far post totally misjudged a cross that should have produced his fourth goal.   Chesham managed just one early second half effort on goal well saved by Abbey but the game hadtransformed with St Neots dominating possession and calling the shots.   Matt Spring had a net bound effort blocked and then after 53 minutes the visitors introduced Nathan Frater for Martel Powell and he re-energised the attack.   Within two minutes of his appearance he was on the end of a Mason Spence and Lewis Hilliard move down the right to score from close range and put St Neots back in the game.  Gore then twice saved well to deny Hilliard and Matt Nolan and Gavin Hoyte lobbed onto the roof of the net.   St Neots continued to press and with thirteen minutes remaining a lengthy effort by Ryan Frater was diverted by the head of Jay Davies over the head of the home goalkeeper to make it 3-2.   Now the impetus was really with the visitors and four minutes later Hilliard went round his marker on the right and crossed for Arthur Lee to score from close range.   It could have been the most unlikely St Neots victory for two minutes into added time Gore saved brilliantly from Hilliard and at the other end as the home side broke for a rare attack Abbey emulated that save as Thomas threatened an unlikely winning goal for Chesham.     St Neots: Abbey, Spence, Lee, Spring, Frater (R),Hoyte, Davies, Ford, Nolan, Hilliard, Powell Subs: Frater (N) (for Powell 53 mins), Ferrari,Bickerstaff, Ivey-Ward and Greygoose.

Southern League Premier Division   HEREFORD UNITED      0         ST NEOTS TOWN        2         Despite there being almost as many protesting Hereford fans outside the ground as those inside, the match attendance was the second highest in the league on the day but unfazed by the commotion around them St Neots served up a solid if rather unspectacular performance to pick up three points on the opening day of the season.  Hereford relegated two steps down from the Conference for financial irregularities were an unknown quantity but featured a mix of youth and experience and gave the visitors a fairly stern test.   The feature of the victory was that St Neots two second half substitutes each scored a goal to earn their victory for a side whose starting line up included just three new faces.   Injury and suspension had robbed the Manager of Ben Farrell and Drew Roberts so there is more to come as St Neots embark on their third season at Step Three.   The opening phase of the match was a little scrappy with neither side looking positive enough in the final third but St Neots dominated early possession without really looking positive enough to threaten the home defence.    A Lewis Hilliard shot was blocked and debutant striker Chris Dillon forced a reflex save from home keeper Luke Williams before sending a second effort wide.   At the other end Deqwon Eubanks saw a header comfortably gathered by Nathan Abbey and then Hilliard playing in a forward role alongside Dillon shot wide and then sent a far post header over the bar.   Defensively St Neots looked very sound although Bilal Yafai did get around Arthur Lee to set up Salvador Ramirez but his shot was well wide.   The competitive nature of the match saw bookings for Samuel Akinde (Hereford) and Dillon but St Neots best first half chance fell to Gavin Hoyte from a Lee corner but he headed the ball narrowly over the bar.   The lively Jay Davies twice shot over the bar but neither goalkeeper was really tested in a first half that was accurately reflected in the goalless score line at the break.   After their half time team talk St Neots immediately looked more positive and three minutes after the restart Hilliard had the ball in the net from a Davies through pass but was ruled marginally offside.   However a change shortly afterwards saw the introduction of Matt Nolan for Dillon and he energised the attack.   He set up Hilliard whose low shot was blocked by a defender and he then sent an angled shot that beat the keeper but passed just the wrong side of the far post.   However after 61 minutes he timed his run past the last defender to perfection to pick up a Jay Davies pass to shoot under the diving body of Williams to score St Neots first goal of the new league season.   It was no more than they deserved and it settled them down to produce some neat possession football although there were few clear chances created.   Then two minutes from time an inspired second substitution by St Neots sealed the result and all three points.   Nathan Frater came on for his quite sensational league debut to replace the tiring Hilliard and with his first touch he went past Joshua Oyibo and was brought down from behind.   The resultant penalty kick saw Jay Davies’ effort well parried by Williams but Frater was perfectly placed on the edge of the area to rap in the rebound to wrap up the two goals’ victory.   St Neots: Abbey, Spence, Lee, Spring, Frater (R), Hoyte, Davies, Ford, Dillon, Hilliard, Powell Subs: Nolan (for Dillon 49 mins), Frater (N) (for Hilliard 88 mins), Ferrari, Ivey-Ward and Greygoose. Cards: Dillon (Y – 39) Goals: Nolan (61 mins), Frater (N) (90+1 mins)   Hereford:  Williams, Knott, Roberts, O’Neill, Morrison, Gregory, Ramirez, Yafai, Eubanks, Akinde, Lewars. Subs: Oyibo (for Knott 49 mins), Gilroy (for Yafai 74 mins) Cards: Akinde (Y – 25), Ramirez (Y – 74), Morrison (Y – 79) Goals: none   Attendance: 568   Referee: Tom Harty (Wolverhampton)   John Walker
