THEOBALDS THE HERO AS AN­GELS UPSET KS

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Jim Rowe

THE LEAGUE form­book was once again flipped up­side down as Tonbridge An­gels de­servedly over­came in­form Kingstonian.

The home side took the lead af­ter ten min­utes when Chinedu McKen­zie fed the ball to fel­low striker Alex Read who flicked the ball past keeper Rob Tol­frey.

The An­gels dou­bled their ad­van­tage on 27 min­utes when Reid turned provider with a pass to Joe Turner whose shot from the edge of the area nes­tled in the cor­ner of the net.

Kingstonian re­sponded in dra­matic fash­ion by lev­el­ling the score­line on the stroke of half time.

Tonbridge were caught out by a short cor­ner rou­tine with Dean In­man pro­duc­ing the header and then, with hardly time to draw breath, Shaun McAuley beat An­gels keeper Jonny Henly to com­plete the come­back.

The sec­ond half saw An­gels front pair­ing of Read and McKen­zie pro­vide plenty of prob­lems for the Kingstonian de­fence with D’Sean Theobalds in­flu­en­tial in mid­field, while at the other end Rhys Mur­rell Wil­liamson was prov­ing a hand­ful.

The win­ning goal came in the 71st minute with a Tonbridge free kick that was fum­bled by Tol­frey and McKen­zie in at­ten­dance close in forced the ball over the line.

STAR MAN: D’Sean Theobalds (Tonbridge An­geld) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
