Ash­ford Town Re­serves 3, Dover Re­serves 0 ERNIE Bat­ten’s Ash­ford side pro­duced a stun­ning dis­play to beat top of the ta­ble Dover on Sun­day. Ash­ford con­trolled large parts of the game frus­trat­ing Dover with some crisp pass­ing and tak­ing their chances well. Town had al­ready hit the post twice be­fore they went ahead on 39 min­utes when Claude Seanla saw his break­away shot par­ried and Joe King tucked away the re­bound. It was still wide open into the mid­dle of the sec­ond pe­riod when Ash­ford wrapped it up with a sec­ond from Seanla af­ter good play from Lee Far­rell. They con­firmed the points on 85 min­utes when Carl Al­mond out­jumped the de­fence to head home the third. Ash­ford Town Re­serves 5, Deal Town Re­serves 3 A GOAL FEST at The Home­lands on Wed­nes­day saw Ash­ford re­serves bounce back from a dis­ap­point­ing loss in their 1st Flood­light game of the sea­son. The im­pres­sive Claude Seanla con­stantly caused the Deal de­fence a prob­lem with his speed and touch on his de­but scor­ing a goal and sup­ply­ing two also hav­ing one ef­fort dis­al­lowed. Deal took an early lead but Town were level on 32 min­utes when Seanla ri­fled a re­bound into the net to level. Deal re­gained the lead two min­utes later but Ash­ford hit back three min­utes be­fore the break Bradley King down the left cut in and shot which swerved just be­fore the keeper who let it slip past him for the equaliser. Ash­ford took the lead Seanla again in the action from a cross shot keeper man­aged to push it away only as far as cap­tain Ralph who made no mis­take from 10 yards out. Again Ash­ford could not keep the lead and within two min­utes a mis­take by the keeper lead to an easy goal for Deal. Scott Bou­vier, on as a sec­ond half sub­sti­tute, crossed to Do­err his shot was blocked the ball fell to Glyde to slot it home. A cou­ple of min­utes later Senna from mid­field set Do­err free who rounded the on­com­ing keeper to fire home into an empty net to se­cure the points. Ash­ford re­serves en­ter­tain Rams­gate on Satur­day in the Kent In­ter­me­di­ate cup 1st round.
