Victory impresses boss
Kent County League
Kennington boss Dan Scorer was delighted after watching his side inflict only a second Premier Division defeat of the season on Premier Division leaders Punjab United at the Julie Rose Stadium on Monday.
The Gravesend side, undefeated since a 4-0 defeat at Borden Village in September, are still five points clear of Greenways, while Kennington are fifth, six points behind Peckham Town, with three games left.
Joe Fisher scored the goal in the 1-0 win and Scorer said: “The players executed the game plan perfectly. Tactically, we got it spot on and they couldn’t have given me any more. With our season realistically over, the game was more about us showing we could and should have been in the title race.
“It’s been a difficult season as the league has definitely been stronger this year but we’re keen to finish well and beating Punjab was a great way to keep our good form going.”
He added: “Joe got the goal early on. It was a fantastic strike but it didn’t surprise me because he’s done it on four or five occasions already this season. You always hope that he’s going to come up with the goods and he did.”
Jack Moran and Warren Smith netted as New Romney missed a chance to go top of Division 1, losing 3-2 at Sutton Athletic on Saturday.
They finish the season with three home games, the next two against title rivals, Kings Hill and Hawkinge Town. The Folkestone villagers lifted the Weald of Kent Senior Charity Trophy after a 4-0 win over Rolvenden at Lydd on Good Friday.
