Burnham

Cambridge City v Burnham on January 18th, 2013

Founded in 1878, the Burnham Football Club originally played until the 1920s at Baldwin Meadow when they moved to the Gore, Wymers Wood Road in Burnham. They first were to first meet  the Lilwhites as a result of their merger of Hillingdon Borough with them in 1985 and this meant they were able to take the place of Hillingdon Borough in the Southern League. For the first two seasons in the Southern League, they were known as Burnham and Hillingdon before reverting back to their old in 1987.

This left team with just a few first team players with the rest of the side being made up by reserve and youth team players. Two nil up after just ten minutes, thanks to goals in the 5th minute by Robbie Burns and a rare headed goal for the Lilywhites in the 9th minute by Lee Chaffey, this soon became 3 nil when Adam Marriott scored the first of his hat-trick in the 16th. A fourth following in the 27th minute, this time another headed goal by Kevin Bossman. Marriott then scored again in the 33rd and Bossman in the 41st to make it 6 nil at half time. Shortly after the break on 49 minutes, Marriott completed his hat-trick. Despite then being 7 nil, the Burnham youngsters never lost heart and after the Lilywhites's subsitutions it was they that scored the only other two goals of the game.
