15.3.2014 Cambridge City 1 - 2 Chesham United Cambridge City team; Barrett, Pepper, Brighton, Beasant, Chaffey, Beech, Burns, Martin, Bossman, Marriott and Dawkin. Subs used were Andrew Phillips for Bossman, Lewis for Burns and Lee for Martin. The Lilywhites welcomed Kelvin Bossman back from suspension and also gave a debut to Andrew Phillips, who had been signed after being released by Histon, While Chesham included two former Lilywhites players, Laurie Stewart and Drew Roberts, in their starting eleven. This top of the table between the Lilywhites, who were laying 4th, and 2nd place Chesham was basically decided in the 36th minute when the Lilywhites had James Brighton sent off after Chesham had been awarded a debatable penalty. Though the referee did not give the penalty at first, for a possible foul by Brighton, the linesman did. Whether Brighton was the last defender was also debatable. The story did not end there as Zac Barrett saved the penalty only for the Chesham number 9 to guide the ball into the back of the net from a likely offside position. At the time of the sending off the scores had been level at 1 a piece after Adam Marriott had equalished in the 25th minute. A crowd of 373 saw the Lilywhites battle on but failed to really have any more chances playing with just 10 men against a strong Chesham side. Also they were not helped by the officials who appeared to give every 50/50 decision to Chesham, who could easily have had both of the central defenders sent off. One of which was not even spoken to when he appeared to have elbowed Bossman in the face,
