A Team - League Victory

Farnborough 6 - 2 Norwood


The opening third saw an open match with both teams attacking and defending, the keepers were busy in each goal! - Callum tipping several over the bar and Kew's keeper responding with blocks and saves. Farnborough grew in confidence, with Oli, Eric and Arthur all coming close but failed to break through.


The next third saw Joe Flint break the deadlock, coming close with one run down the wing and then seizing on a poor kick by the keeper, Joe calmly slotted home his first goal of the season. However moments later saw Kew break near the edge of the Farnborough box. Their striker took a shot, which Dan had covered in the Farnborough goal but a huge deflection saw the ball roll past Dan on the opposite corner to his dive! 1-1.

Joe was having a blinder on the right wing and his final break saw his shot rebound off the post and Oliver smashed it in with his left. 2-1 Farnborough!


The final period saw Farnborough slowly take control of the game and Eric found himself in the right place to poke in the third for Farnborough. Kew didn't allow their heads to drop and with their goalie keeping them in the game with some stunning saves the home team broke to get their second of the match.

This only spurred Farnborough on with Joe blazing over the bar and hitting the post again. Rhys took command of the centre of the pitch and smashed in two goals from outside the box to put Farnborough 5-2 up.Eric rounded off the evening with a confident finish for his second of the match.

Special mention to the Kew Woods keeper who was superb all matchj and Martin Melyov who stepped into his brother's (injured at lunch time) boots putting in an assured couple of shifts in defence for the A Team.
