Risborough Rangers played out a stalemate in a hotly contested derby at Amersham Town.

Rangers had nine regular players missing for the South Midlands Division 1 match and had to rely heavily on goalkeeper James Tovey to keep them in the game on Saturday.

Amersham created numerous chances but consistently found Tovey their match.

At the other end Luke Hurley went closest for the visitors as his fizzing effort came off the post after 60 minutes.

But it finished all square in a fair reflection of the game.

In Risborough’s previous league encounter last Tuesday they fared far worse slipping to a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Kings Langley.

Rangers have now won , lost and drawn their opening three games of the season and sit in 7th place.

They will be hoping to improve their consistency in their next two encounters.

Rangers host Chesham United Reserves tonight (Tuesday, kick-off 7.45pm).

On Saturday they then face a trip to Wodson Park (kick-off 3pm).

Risborough Rangers Reserves also struggled in their opening league game as they went down 2-0 to St Margaretsbury.

They next host London Lions on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
