Match Report

Strike Force put in a performance worthy of winning any game on Sunday when they hosted Herne Bay in the Kent Youth League. 

After starting brightly and dominating possession and the midfield the hosts thought they had got their reward when a ball in was spilt by the keeper and tapped in by Ellis Holliday but the referee felt the goal keeper was impeded by another player. 5 minutes later, they got their reward when the ball fell to the edge of the area and Ben Treacher fired a left footed strike into the bottom corner. A few minutes later, they were denied a second when a ball in from Kurt Dayson-Scott was met by the unmarked Holliday, his header was well placed but for a superb one handed save from the keeper. 

As half time approached Strike Force struck the post through Hayden Knowles from 20 yards out and they were denied a couple more goals through good goalkeeping and resolute defending from the away side. 

After half time, Strike Force hit another gear and were soon further ahead, after fine work down the left hand side by Luke Taylor and Romeen Gurung witt the former drawing a foul and from the resulting free kick, Zac Benfield curled the ball up and over the wall into the top right hand corner. 

A few moments later, it was 3-0 when  Holliday linked up well going forward with Knowles and curled the ball into the top left corner and the scoring was complete when more sharp play around the box fell to Luke Taylor who rifled home goal number 4. 

After the game, team manager Mike Juden reflected on the game saying "The boys played superb today, the ball was always moving and they played with a real maturity about them. They did everything we asked of them and made sure they were more clinical in front of goal compared to last week. With a couple of injuries we had to change things up, but it just shows we are flexible and can mix it up when necessary."
