West Wickham v Faversham Town
By Peter Cadogan
Lost 7-1 Kent County Cup
A crisp, sunny autumnal morning greeted us at West Wickham for this Kent County cup game. The game started with early pressure from Faversham Town but lacking penetration. Suddenly Louie was dispossessed in midfield, which looked suspiciously like a foul. West Wickham burst forward and in a flash Faversham Town were 1-0 down, with only 5 mins on the clock, very much against the run of play. 5 mins later Faversham Town 2-0 out of nowhere! A mix up in defence and unfortunately a penalty is given away! West Wickham suddenly believed in themselves and Faversham Town heads started to drop and we faded badly and go into the break 3-0 down.
1st half Stats: West Wickham had 5 attempts; 3 on Target & 3 goals. Faversham Town had 4 attempt; 3 on target; no goals.
The next goal in the 2nd half would be crucial and Faversham Town were unlucky to go 4-0 down. West Wickham broke through again and a one on one withArchie, who saved brilliantly, only to see the ball rebound to a West Wickham forward who slotted it home! The first chance of the 2nd half fell to Jack R, who stretching for the ball, pushed it over the bar. Faversham Town were finding more success down the left and after another great cross from the left by Jaydn, Jack R was at the near post to flick neatly home. Was the come back on.......? In a word no! West Wickham went straight up the other end and killed the game off with a goal to make it 5-1. Game over!. West Wickham continued to outplay, out fight Faversham Town to score another 2 goals to end the rout 7-1. Not the best day at the office for Faversham Town U13! As one of the parents said, the only plus side is that it means a free weekend down the line!
2nd half Stats: West Wickham had 7 attempts, all on target, & 4 goals. Faversham Town had 2 attempts, 1 on target & 1 goal from Jack Robbens & an assist from Jaydn.
