King rules over Town

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - All The Week’s Action... -

Craig King hit four as Willes­bor­ough started the new year in style with an 11-1 trounc­ing of hosts Lydd Town 3rds. Luke Walder, Tommy Ether­ing­ton and Ryan Fitzger­ald all scored twice, with Marc Lawrence adding the other, in a per­for­mance man­ager Lee James hailed as the best of the sea­son. They raced to a 6- 0 half-time lead, mak­ing light of a muddy pitch, be­fore adding five more in the sec­ond half against win­less bot­tom side Lydd, who have now con­ceded 142 goals in 15 games. Fitzger­ald, mak­ing his full de­but for the side, was named man-of-the-match, adding four as­sists to his goal dou­ble, while debu­tant Marky Ever­est set-up Walder’s opener. River­side scored first, only to fin­ish on the wrong end of a 5-1 home de­feat by Golden Ar­row Re­serves in the only other game to sur­vive. Bradley God­den marked his de­but with the open­ing goal. Pos­ing plenty of prob­lems for the Hythe visi­tors, he ran onto player-man­ager Stuart Kingsnorth’s through ball and fired home. Ar­row striker John Smith fired a shot wide, be­fore his side then missed a penalty. Steve Mas­ters then put Ar­row level be­fore half-time. God­den went close again early in the sec­ond half but Ar­row with­stood the pres­sure and Mas­ters then put them in front. Pro­lific Smith then took cen­tre stage with his lat­est hat-trick, pun­ish­ing River­side for some poor de­fend­ing, with the third tak­ing a mas­sive de­flec­tion, be­fore beat­ing goal­keeper An­drew Possee.
