Evolution 3 G Casino Thanet 3

An exciting game by two very competitive teams from the 2nd Div, G Casino started on fire and was 0-1 up within 5 minutes catching the evo defence off guard with a good goal, Evo then settled and tried to get their game going however they could not find the final ball but at only 1-0 they were certainly in the game.

Evolution F.C. vs. HCS United F.C. (15/Sep/2013)

Evolution 1 HCS 0

The Evo revolution continues with teams coming up against a resolute Evolution defence, HCS united probably believe they deserved more out of the game and I have to admit that they had plenty of opportunities to score.

However it's all about putting chances away and it was DAVE BUDD with a clever through ball from Alex to opened the scoring on 15minutes walking the ball into the net after taking it around the keeper. The game was on a knife edge for the remaining 75 minutes with chances at both ends but it was Evo's day with a sound defensive display.

Good game, end to end, and Evo march on!

Monkton F.C. vs. G Casino Thanet F.C. (15/Sep/2013)

Monkton 2 G Casino Thanet 4

G Casino went out this weekend still looking for their first win and against a strong Monkton team it wasn't going to be easy. As the game got under way both teams found themselves with plenty of possession and were passing the ball around well.

It was G Casino that got the breakthrough, when the ball was played down the right from Ricky Hargreaves too Krzysztof Dubis who then played the ball inside too Mateusz Matyszek. Mateusz then threaded the ball between two defenders for Krzystof Dubis too run on too and smash the ball past the keeper at his near post. 1-0.

As half time approched Monkton won a corner and as G Casino worked out who they were marking, Monkton whipped the ball in too see it beat the keeper and deffender at the near post without touching anybody. 1-1

The second half got underway and continued in the same fashion as the first with both teams passing the ball around well. G Casino won a free kick just in their own half. It was taken by Tom Ross who sent it long in too the Monkton box and Neil Woodland got on the end of it to header it past the keeper at the back post. 2-1 Monkton kicked off and G casino won the ball back and a throw down the right.

Nathan Jefferys stepped up to take the throw and sent it long in too the box for Neil to pop up again with another header to beat the keeper for a second time. 3-1 G Casino knew that they were in full control of the game and put the pressure on Monkton and they got their reward when Bartek Biegajlo put Krzystof Dubis through one on one with the keeper and he slotted the ball passed the keeper and put the game fully in the hands of G Casino. 4-1

Monkton hit back with a goal of their own but the game was already over and G Casino saw out the rest of the game to pick up all three points and their first win of the season. Final score 4-2.

East Kent College F.C. vs. Royal F.C. (08/Sep/2013)

East Kent College 1 Royal FC 2

Royal started off well stating their intentions early with Adam Sackett scoring an early goal, The lead was doubled by Sam Hedges when he rifled the second into the top corner from the edge of the box.

A mistake in defence from a lofted freekick allowed EKC FC to get a foothold in the game. The game then took an unexpected turn as George Keen was sent off for a two footed tackle in the first half, meaning The Royal had to play some of the first and all of the second half a man down.

Despite being a man down Royal still created chances and were unlucky not to have added another when Stephen Stockley and Jack Mitchell both went close. As fatigue set in during the last 20 minutes, the college started to look the more likely and may have equalised had it not been for some last ditch defending by Jake Farmer and some good saves by Liam Guessx. Game finished EKC FC 1-2 Royal FC.

Westgate Social Club F.C. vs. Evolution F.C. (08/Sep/2013)

Westgate Social Club 0 Evolution 2

Superb battle between two competitive teams, Evo have improved defensively this season and it shows with their 2nd clean sheet, westgate social made evo work hard and had their chances but with Brian the cat Lamberton in goal and a solid defensive line up evo were resolute for 90 mins.

In the 1st half Budd for evo hit the bar with the ball seemingly crossing the line but without goal line technology at grass roots it was never going to be given, the match was a total battle in the midfield and it was always going to be a mistake or bit of luck that would resolve the game and with 5 mins remaining DAVE BUDD picked up a pass from dale wells to slot home.

With westgate pushing for equalizer in the final minutes Laurence broke free and put the ball acroos for BUDD to secure a victory and his 5th goal in two games, superb battle and well earned 3 points for the Evolution

Northdown Rangers 4 Westgate Best One 4

Northdown Rangers earned a well deserved point after coming from 4-2 behind at half time, A gutsy performance in the second half and being awarded a late penalty in the dying seconds after a late challenge on S booker to tie 4-4.

Having started well going ahead twice in the first half thanks to goals from C.miller and N Pressley they seemed to take their foot off the gas and allow W.B.O back into the game to lead 4-2 at the interval the turning point came mid way through the 2nd half as L.Colley slotted home from a loose ball before the late penalty award ensured they took a valuable point from the first game of the season

Stonecroft Builders F.C. vs. The Odds F.C. (01/Sep/2013)

Stonecroft Builders 3 The Odds 2.

Stonecroft made a winning start to the season with a 3-2 victory over The Odds and will be hoping to build on this result. With The Odds starting with just 9 men Stonecroft struggled to keep to their formation with players drifting out of position into the empty places which were appearing.

This disrupted Stones' game and they soon found themselves a goal down against the nine men when a ball over the top beat the Stones' defence and was slotted home. Stonecroft did have spells of decent play but without the final touch and on the stroke of half time the ball fell to S.Raddley who slotted home.

Stonecroft converted back to their more familiar formation of 4-4-2 for the second half and with J.Coot being stepping out of goal to his more familiar position in midfield, Stones soon started playing their usual flowing football. With The Odds up to 10 men now and less space the team were able to keep to their positions and play football. Stones soon found themselves 2-1 up when Webb's tame shot went in through The Odds' keepers legs.

Stones were looking much better and soon found themselves 3-1 up when another light shot, this time by Oliver, was again allowed to creep in off The Odds' keeper. An individual error at the back did allow The Odds to pull another goal back, but Stonecroft saw the game out to record a 3-2 victory.

Bay Point Athletic 2 G Casino Thanet 2

The game got underway and G Casino found themselves 1-0 up after 2 minutes, Neil Woodland took a long throw from the left which was met by Bartek Biegajlo who's header beat the keeper at the near post.

The game was played at a very fast tempo for the first 20 minutes with both teams looking nervous and trying to take control of the game. As the game went on G casino got in to their flow and had control of the game. Mitchell Gilbert hit another goal kick deep into Bay Points half it was brought under control with one touch by Michael Belsey who layed it of too Krzysztof Dubis who in return played a quick ball back which saw Michael slot the ball home to make the score 2-0.

The second half was harder work for G Casino as Bay Point sorted out what went wrong with their first half and scored two goals in the second half and could of had a winner if it wasn't for a fantastic save by Mitchell Gilbert in goal. Final score 2-2

Evolution F.C. vs. Saga Services F.C. (01/Sep/2013)

Evolution F.C. 4 Saga Services FC 0

A competitive game from both teams with Evolution coming out deserved winners, Evolution started with three at the back but Saga were getting to much space out on the left so their manager Les Staples made the call to switch to 442 and two minutes later Tony Palmer got down the right to square for Thomasz to slot home.

Some two minutes later it was 2-0 with David Budd scoring from Holdsworth ball forward the rest of the half was about who could control the midfiled and with Alex and Jude evolution were getting the upper hand with Saga being comtetitive.
