Chasetown FC’s winning run ends as Stamford take advantage of efforts by volunteers to clear snow

The best efforts of Chasetown FC’s volunteers was enough to ensure The Scholars game against Stamford.

The group of 20 – included midfielder Will Whieldon and four members of his family, shifted more than an inch of snow off the pitch in a five hour effort.

But despite their efforts, Chasetown found themselves behind after four minutes when a slip allowed Ben George to capitalise.

The visitors should have doubled their lead when Liam Adams was left unmarked in the area, but his effort was straight at Curtis Pond who got the ball away onto the base of the post.

Chasetown lost striker Jake Lovatt to an injury but almost levelled when Muzzy Nduna’s header was saved by Daniel Haystead following an Oli Hayward cross.

Haystead produced another save to deny Nduna again as the home side pushed for an equaliser.

Whieldon was fingertips away from scoring with a 25 yard free kick that Haystead pushed wide at full stretch.

Stamford doubled their lead against the run of play as Adams converted from close range.

Chasetown pushed for a way back into the game and Ryan Wynter rattled the crossbar with a header.

Jack Langston then saw his shot clawed away by Haystead with a defender rescuing Stamford by clearing off the line.
