DESPITE playing for 90 minutes with just nine men, Chineham Albion claimed a place in the semi-finals of the Bernard Cornish Cup with a narrow victory over RAF Odiham Blades.
It was a real rearguard action from the nine men to keep the game scoreless and force extra-time, at which point they were bolstered by two late arrivals. This seemed to tip the balance, and Kieron Alleyene netted midway through the second half of extra-time to win the game for Chineham.
