Defeat on the road for Chasetown FC as they are beaten by Soham Town Rangers

Chasetown FC suffered an unhappy away day as they made their first visit to Soham Town Rangers for more than eight years.

The long away trip was part of new manager Scott Dundas’ plan for a team-building journey, with plenty of supporters on the same coach as the players to get to know their new squad a bit better.

Soham were the better side on the day and led at the break.

Chasetown’s best chance in the half came right at the end of the half when Muzzy Nduna chased down a through ball and forced a save from the home keeper.

Soham led 2-0 before Chasetown finally got their goal. If there had been goal-line technology, Frankie Baigent may have had a strong claim that the ball had already crossed the line before the keeper scooped the ball out from his goal. There was certainly no doubt that the rebound crossed the line though as Chris Baker slammed home the chance.

Will Whieldon almost added a spectacular goal which fizzed just over the target but would have been a goal of the season candidate if it had found the net.

Soham added a third heading home a free-kick and a fourth before the end, their strikes coming from Hall (2), Tricks and Brown.
