Un­beaten run ended

FLAT PER­FOR­MANCE AT HIGH WY­COMBE LEADS TO FIRST DE­FEAT IN FOUR MATCHES FOR ASH­FORD Ash­ford

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Homes -

ASH­FORD’S four-match un­beaten run in South League Premier Divi­sion 2 came to an end with a 2-1 de­feat at High Wy­combe.

The vis­i­tors looked jaded from the start and if it was not for the man-of-the-match per­for­mance by goal­keeper Keir Star­ley, they would have lost more heav­ily.

Ash­ford went be­hind when the home side passed through their de­fence to set up a div­ing tip-in.

Rob Play­ford then equalised from a penalty cor­ner af­ter good work by Andy Hill.

The game then fell flat for 20 min­utes but High Wy­combe se­cured the three points when they were awarded a de­bat­able penalty.

As a re­sult of thwe de­feat, Ash­ford dropped to fifth place go­ing into the Christ­mas break but they are still very much in the pro­mo­tion mix.

ASH­FORD un­der-14s won a thrilling game against Kent League leaders Brom­ley & Beck­en­ham by the odd goal in seven at Ball Lane on Sun­day.

Matthew Mis­sons net­ted the open­ing goal and de­spite the vis­i­tors equal­is­ing, two quick goals from Milo Hol­land and Nathan Hea­cote put Ash­ford in con­trol.

Af­ter half-time, BromBecks pulled an­other goal back but Ro­nan Tag­gart re­stored the twogoal head.

The vis­i­tors pulled back to 4-3 to set-up a ner­vous fi­nale but the hosts held on to end the first half of the sea­son on a high.

Gra­ham Bing­ham clears for Ash­ford 4ths against Gore Court 4ths, while Richards Ju­nior and Se­nior look on. Ash­ford won the Kent Open Premier B game 3-1
