Whitstable Town Under 21’s 1 Thamesmead Town 0
Ryman Under 21 League (South)
Saturday 5th October 2013
Goal Scorer Stephen Munn
Town went into the game knowing that Thamesmead are the only team to take a point off favourites Maidstone United ,so it was going to be a difficult match. Town started the best by playing the ball around very well with Beau Taylor marshalling the back four very well. There was very little penetration from Thamesmead and the first half fizzled out with Town in total control and visitors rarely looking like scoring. With the half-time score being goalless Town started the second much the better with Dan Keyte and Jordan Wells coming more into the game.
Whitstable Town were now really getting on top causing the Mead to argue amongst themselves but if hosts had that bit of quality in the final third the game would have been over at half time. With ten minutes to go the ball was driven across the penalty area for Stephen Munn to bundle the ball into the net to give Town a deserved three points. Whitstable did finish the game with ten men following a sending off for two yellow cards two minutes before time.
Town coach Ian Grieves stated after the game “We should have been out of sight by half time and with ore quality in our play we would have won by two or three goals. Matt Byott has been great for us this afternoon along with the back four . Well done to all the young lads .
