Some matches define non league football. A windswept muddy field, a crowd of about 30 and plentiful swearing – alongside some ‘old style’ tackling and occasional flashes of brilliance is about as good a working definition as you’ll get. Chalfont Wasps edged out Rayners Lane 1-0 thanks to a contested goal and many contested tackles. There was passion on the sidelines and in the clubhouse talk of the exhorbitant prices Beaconsfield SYCOB charge. This was also my second match of the season featuring a tube stop – I saw Cockfosters take apart Amersham Town earlier in the year.
