Sunday 1st November 2015
Chesham Charity Cup 1st Round at Cow Roast v Wycombe Town

Maclay 6 (2) v Wycombe Town 3 (1)
Scorers: Dean Gavin (5 min), Simon Davis (13, 78, 83 & 89 min) & Peter Hay (81 min)

A stunning four goal performance from Maclay striker Simon Davis safely delivered the club into the second round of the Chesham Charity Cup when it looked like the club were heading for yet another defeat.
Buoyed by the return of Dean Gavin and Conor O’Connor, Maclay swept into the lead after 5 minutes when Dan Rennison’s intelligent pass left resulted in a characteristic DEAN GAVIN goal.
Maclay continued to attack and SIMON DAVIS made it two nil eight minutes later when he calmly knocked home Dean Gavin’s square pass on the edge of the six yard box.
Maclay had a number of good chances after this but were stunned when Wycombe Town scored against the run of play after 27 minutes. Wycombe gained confidence from the goal and the match became far more even. Ben O’Connor was unlucky when his 30 yard free kick hit woodwork and bounced away.
Worse was to come in the second half when a defensive mix up enabled Wycombe to equalise after 51 minutes. Maclay were stunned in the 72nd minute when Wycombe took the lead from a breakaway. A game that had looked so comfortable for Maclay had completely turned on its head.
The reintroduction of SIMON DAVIS in the 77th minute completely changed things. Within a minute Davis pounced on the ball in the box to equalise. PETER HAY then put the team 4-3 ahead three minutes later. Two minutes after that SIMON DAVIS scored again to complete his hat trick and effectively seal the game. A bonus goal came two minutes from time when a cross/shot from thirty yards out on the right sailed over the keeper’s head into the top corner of the goal to give SIMON DAVIS his fourth goal and Maclay a 6-3 win.
Maclay really enjoyed playing at home for the first time since September and the team certainly benefited from the return of two key players. That being said, if Davis hadn’t delivered on the day, it would have all have been very different.

Squad: C Young, P Hanlon, J O’Connor, P Hay (capt), C O’Connor, B O’Connor, S Hodja, S Davis, B Mulchrone, L Kent, Y Seodi, D Rennison & D Gavin
