Last night I made the first visit of the season to Chesham United, in fact it felt like my first visit to Chesham for ages with the tail-end of last season dominated by thoroughly enjoying watching Saracens complete the League and European Cup double. Last night was just a friendly, but a very impressive performance.
The ramblings and rantings of a Chesham United fan that lived the dream – Joined the Board, became Chairman…and truly discovered how tough, how bitter, lonely and challenging it can be doing something you feel you should love….but also so very rewarding.
