Late ar­rival ham­pers youth side

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport -

ASH­FORD U19s ar­rived very late at Sid­cup and never re­ally had a chance to warm up com­pletely.

This gave the ad­van­tage to the home side who scored af­ter five min­utes and then again quickly to take an early 12-0 lead. Ash­ford ral­lied but the well drilled Sid­cup side scored two more tries to lead at half time 24-0.

Ash­ford started the sec­ond half strongly with Grant Bur­den tak­ing a catch, chip­ping on and break­ing two tack­les to release Nathaniel Hayes who touched down un­der the posts. Bur­den con­verted and Ash­ford were fight­ing back.

Good tackling pre­vented fur­ther scores un­til Sid­cup had a player sin binned and Ash­ford shipped the ball through the back line for Hayes to touch down again and re­duce the deficit to 24–12.
