Vic­tory im­presses boss

Kent County League

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Football -

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.
