Under 18's KYL vs Whyteleafe FC

Match Date: 20 January 2019
Score: 1-1


Bearsted welcomed Whyteleafe to Honey lane for their second meeting of the season and after losing that tough match 1-0. 

The game kicked off and BFC pressed WFC in every part of the pitch, this gave them real control of the game and the football being played and link up was fantastic. BFC created a few clear cut chances before Josh Ladlow set up Billy Easby who had a one on one and to the delight of his team mates calmly slotted it home to make it 1-0 Bearsted. The first 45 mins was clearly being controlled by Bearsted and again a few clear chances went a miss and half time came and it remained 1-0. 

The second half kicked off and Whyteleafe picked the pace up slightly but so did BFC and never let them get back in the game. Jordan Ababio caused problems up front and soon broke through the WFC defence, made it to their box and then after being barged off the ball from behind had a strong appeal for a penalty but to the shock of everyone the Ref didn't give it. WFC won a corner with only 1 minute to go and after a series of rebounded shots and the inability to clear the ball it manged to end up in the back of the net to make it 1-1 WFC. This was so tough to see after the boys had fought so well and had given 100% all game. 

A point from an very good side is positive but also the quality of football was great to watch today from Bearsted.  The Whyteleafe management where very complimentary of the boys today and admitted they were lucky with a point, so thank you for the positive feedback.

Onwards and upwards lads!!
