Godfrey nets late winner to send Brewmaster top of the pile

Premier Division

Two late goals from midfielder Frank Godfrey saw Brewmaster come back from behind to move to the top of the Premier Division league table with a 4-3 victory over Mersham Sports. The Brews had trailed 3-1 with just over 20 minutes left to play, but three goals in the final quarter of the game including Godfrey’s brace saw John Ripley’s side extend their 100% winning start to the season to six consecutive victories.

Brewmaster took the lead after 16 minutes when recent signing Piers Fuchter netted against his former club to give the home side a 1-0 lead that they took into the half-time interval. But Mersham came back into the game at the start of the second half when player-manager Rob Clark headed the visitors’ level, and they then went ahead for the first time in the game just two minutes later when Sam Wilson fired them in front. Clark scored his second and Mersham’s third when he ghosted in unmarked at a corner to make it 3-1 as the visitors took control of the game and closed in on what would have been their first back-to-back league wins for over three years.

But their celebrations were short lived as Brews skipper Gary Clarke won and converted a 67th minute penalty to start the comeback before Godfrey levelled to make it 3-3 with ten minutes left on the clock when he met Louis Plumridge’s excellent cross to steer the ball home. Godfrey then capitalised to score the all-important winning goal soon after when he seized on a loose ball before firing home from the edge of the penalty area to send the Brews top of the standings.

 
Bill Hills Premier Division League Cup- Preliminary Round

Red Heathens grabbed an injury time winner to see themselves through to the quarter finals of the Bills Hills League Cup as they just got the better of a brave Lolzors side winning 4-3 at Charing Heath. Red Heathens were pegged back twice after going in front blowing both 2-0 and 3-2 leads at various stages of the game before midfielder Lewis Fuller popped up with the winning goal in the 90th minute of the game to set up an away tie with Nailbox in the next round. Additional goals from Radoslav Davidov, Stuart Wilson and Craig Haynes had seen the Heathens take control before two goals from Farid White and one from James Standen for Lolzors set up a dramatic finale.

 

Kent Sunday Junior Cup- Third Round

Horsebox Bars fell at the final hurdle in their attempt to qualify for the countywide stage of the Kent Sunday Junior Cup as they were knocked out of the competition losing 5-3 at home to West Kent Sunday League visitors Charcott FC. Goals from Ashley Boyd, Will Bussey and Matt King were not enough in the end to see off their Tonbridge-based guests as two goals from Jake Aldridge and singles from Luke Ailles, Ben Ailles and Jay Pring saw Charcott through to the last-16.

 

Val Helen Division One League Cup- Preliminary Round

Robbie Westbrook helped fire Folkestone United into the quarter finals of the Val Helen League Cup as his four goals helped them to a 5-3 home won over Ashford Genclik. Westbrook was prolific in front of goal for United as his four goals took him to nine for the season and set his side up a last-eight clash at home to Charing in the next round. Ryan Lowe added an important fifth for United to cancel out two Emin Yalcin strikes and one from top scorer Dion Orris for Genclik who saw their six-game winning sequence ended with this cup defeat.

 
Peter Pain Division Two League Cup- Preliminary Round

South Willesborough continued their recent excellent league and cup form beating Park Farm Rangers 4-3 in the preliminary round of the Division Two League Cup. The Frogs now face either Troggs or Ashford Cavaliers in the quarter finals of the competition after Brad Horne’s side recorded their seventh consecutive home victory. Michael Norris’ penalty set the hosts on their way before long range strikes from both Tom Brown and Rhys Pryor extended their lead before former Cavaliers player Garry Blunden added a fourth with his first goal for the club. Rangers were unlucky but came unstuck against a very strong side, replying with goals from Daniel Marshall, Kieran Garvey and Adam Draper-Lewis.

 

Division Three

Ashley Sales scored the only goal of the game as Folkestone United returned from their trip to Homelands Stadium 1-0 winners over promotion rivals Ashford United Thirds. The victory for Carl Taylor’s side lifts them to the top of the Division Three league standings three points above previous leaders Mersham Sports Reserves. Sales scored his 21st goal of the season to earn Folkestone all three points with goalkeeper Jack Johnstone keeping his second clean sheet of the campaign in the process.

Smeeth & Brabourne moved up to fourth in the table as they beat Aldington Reserves 4-2. Smeeth extended their unbeaten home record to five games in all competitions thanks to Max Brady’s brace, while further goals from James Evans and Kuba Grynko sealed all three points for Denis Killeen’s in-form side. Kevin Ruane continued his decent form in front of goal scoring twice for Aldington but couldn’t help end their six-game losing sequence as they remain down in ninth place.

Steve Warren proved a real handful for bottom of the table Kingsnorth Pilgrims as he scored six times to earn Pilgrims Sunday a comfortable 8-1 victory. Warren recently transferred from Division Three rivals Ashford United Thirds and wasted no time to show what he can deliver netting a double hat-trick to end Pilgrims five game losing sequence with an emphatic victory. Warren scored three times inside the opening ten minutes before going on to score three times more for Karl Lowry’s side, while further goals from Nathan Cook and Alfie Emblem rounded off a fantastic morning for the hosts.

 

Aford Awards Division Three League Cup- Preliminary Round

Jordan Osborne netted a hat-trick to help Bromley Green Reserves into the last-eight of the Aford Awards League Cup as they thrashed Charing Reserves 9-2 away from home. Osborne’s treble helped set up a quarter final away at Singleton Barn in the New Year as Sid Hone’s side extended their winning run to six games in all competitions. Casper Floyd and Jamie Dobbin scored two goals each to increase the visitors’ advantage before goals from Matt Burdon and Lennie Russell wrapped up a good morning’s work to knock out Charing who replied with their goals coming from Nathan Lakra and Tony Spicer.
