Herne Bay Reserves 2 Whitstable Town 1 (Lost 3-2 on aggregate)
Kent League Division One Cup Semi Final Second Leg
Tuesday 2nd April 2013
Bob Reardon’s comments following the defeat in the League Cup to rivals Herne Bay Reserves.
“Once again we have failed at the final hurdle to make the Division One Cup final following the defeat against Hollands & Blair in the Kent Intermediate Cup. We must now play eleven games in six weeks. We had most of the game tonight and it is extremely disappointing basically getting undone by two goals in ten minutes. Tonight was without a doubt the most strange performance from a set of officials I have ever seen with time wasting, kicking the ball out of the ground , tying up laces, and the last one handball given by the linesman. The referee also gave a drop ball out of the area when the offence happened on the goal line.
There were good performances including young 16 year old J Atkins playing with a badly swollen ankle in goal, Bola and Matte in centre midfield, D Keyte playing out of position and L Lewry up top .
We can now look forward to our bread and butter games in the league now, and give it our best shot to see where we can finish in the league. Thanks to all supporters and committee who turned up to watch the game tonight. Sorry we let you down ! “
