Rob Finn reports on a successful trip to the seaside
Today we travelled to Broadstairs for a friendly against East Kent FC, who we had never played before. The first 10 minutes of the game was even until a mix up at the back saw us concede a goal 1-0. The boys kept battling and soon leveled when Thomas fired home 1-1. Then Matteo put us in front with a fine strike
and just before the break Thomas got his second goal and made the HT scoreline 1-3. Second half we started brightly with some great attacking football and it paid off when Josh beat the offside trap and fired in a low shot 1-4. And they were not finished yet as Sam blasted home to make it 1-5 before Matteo got his second of the game with a low drive into the bottom corner 1-6. The last 10 minutes the boys seemed to step off the gas and allowed the opposition to get their second goal 2-6. But the boys kept going forward and won a penalty when Matteo was brought down in the box. Harrison stepped up to convert the spot kick and made it 2-7 which was to be the final score. Well done all who took part and congratulations to Sam on earning player of the match £5 voucher today.
