Match Date: 16 October 2016
Bearsted travelled to the Gallagher stadium to face Maidstone UTD for what was going to be a tough match.
The game got underway and Bearsted played some great football and seemed to be very focused. Chances were being created at both ends of the pitch and BFC defended well, then 20mins in and after a 50/50 ball that clashed just on the edge of the BFC box it deflected and looped over the keeper’s head for a very lucky goal. 0-1 Maidstone ….. half time came and the score remained at 0-1.
The second half kicked off and after a few changes BFC looked like they had the fire back in their belly, the football was being well controlled but Maidstone kept pressing and eventually after some good pace they managed to beat the defence and score to make it 2-0 Maidstone. The boys never gave up and after 15 mins JK (Josh Kincaid) hit an thunderbolt some 35yrd out that rocketed into the top of the net to make it 1-2 Bearsted, the boys were buzzing and kept up the pressure until BFC were awarded a free kick some 25yrds out and Charlie Revel stepped up and smashed it into the roof of the net to make it 2-2 Bearsted. BFC now knew the game could be won and played some great football hitting the cross bar and post twice but just not getting that so derved goal, then 3 mins before time Maidstone managed to score a header at the back post that made it 3-2 Maidstone. The boys were gutted but never gave up abd fought until the final whistle that ended 3-2 Maidstone. What a bitter pill to swallow after an amazing performance and attitude from every BFC boy there today…
Man of the Match: Josh Kincaid
Well done boys, I am absolutely gutted for you all, keep up the great work rate though.
