Faversham Town U21s 2 Whitstable Town U21s 0
Ryman Football League Under 21 South
Thursday 2nd April 2015
Former Oyster Joe Lester returned to action for the Lilywhites and illustrated the potential he has, creating chance after chance as Faversham dominated the first half against a lack lustre Town.
The home side went one up with their first chance in the opening minute when the ball crossed from the left slicing open the town defence who appeared at odds with one another; before they went two up shortly after.Town appeared to allow the home side to come at them and it wasn’t until the second half that the away side really started to press; the best chance coming with just ten minutes to go as Town’s 11 turned at the edge of the area having beaten three opponents before lobbing the keeper with a fine shot only for it to come straight off the bar.
Harry Brooks was undoubtedly the busier of the two keepers making several fines saves in the process, keeping the score just to two conceded; but it was the introduction of two substitutes Liam Mathews & Khalid Ashrami that became industrious and to whom the latter had the best opportunity of the game with only minutes remaining, but alas having been put through nicely he stumbled and the chance went missing!
It was all too late for the young Oystermen in a competitive fixture where neither set of players didn’t shirk a challenge, but to their credit controlled their emotions; Faversham were worthy winners.
Whitstable play Chatham Town next Thursday at The Belmont, 7.45pm kick off.
