Match Date: 06 November 2016
Bearsted travelled to Sittingbourne to play Chatham Town.
The game kicked off and Bearsted dominated the play and were linking up well, after 10 minutes a free kicked was awarded on the edge of Chatham’s box, so Jake Bates stepped up and smashed it in towards the goal keeper who managed to stop the shot but luckily Matt Morse followed up and slotted the first home to make it 1-0 Bearsted. This gave the boys a real buzz and they lkept pressing for another, this came when the ball found its way through to Jake Bates on the left who fired a second home to make it 2-0 Bears. The game was still end to end and Chatham kept working hard and eventually after a mistake in the middle they managed to brake away and score a goal to make it 1-2 Chatham. Half time came and the score remained at 2-1 Bears.
The second half kicked off and the bears knew they had to stay focused for 40 minutes, ten minutes into the game the Bears gave a penalty away after a unnecessary tackle inside the box, Chatham stepped up but Lucas Yazdanfar had other ideas and managed to get it covered and kept it out for a corner… still 2-1 Bears. After that blip the bears settled down and after some good passing Josh Ladlow fired a perfect through ball for the Striker who managed to put the goalkeeper off and the ball continued through into the net to make it 3-1 Bears.
A good all round performance from the bears today and well deserved.
Man of the Match: Matt Morse
