First Team 4 Croydon 0

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

A long journey for the Sevenoaks team and fans brought them to Croydon FC where the Oaks were looking for another result on the back of Saturday's win against Horley Town.

 

A slightly different starting line up saw Debrah reintroduced to the squad and Ramsamy and Stone coming from the bench. Midfield Steve Camacho remained in the team after some impressive recent performances. 

 

The first half began and Sevenoaks looked sharp and hungry to control the game, continuing on from Saturday’s impressive FA Vase result. They dominated the opposition, out strengthening their midfield and showed some solid displays in defence, with Skelton and Butler snuffing out Croydons’ pace out wide. As the game settled and Sevenoaks control took hold, striker Adrian Stone capitalised from a header won by Ramsamy - with a low shot volley that bounced over the Croydon goalkeepers diving attempt.

 

Sevenoaks added a second when Debrah chased down a through ball before out stripping the fullback, and cutting across goal then firing in a low driven shot into the bottom corner. 2-0 to Sevenoaks.

 

The second half began and Croydon came out determined to try and have some influence on the game, but for all their huff and puff they could not break down Sevenoaks’ impeccable defence - even with the head bandaged Tom Ripley (who later had to have his forehead glued due to the injury he received in the first half).

 

The game was put to bed on the 70 minute mark, when Oaks won a free kick 30 yards from goal. Ramsamy stood up and drilled the ball into the bottom right corner, which took a deflection wrong footing the keeper. Oaks however did not want to stop there as Adrian Stone put away a fantastic 4-pass move with a sublime finish in the box wrapping the game up. Gacheru, Walker and Ibertson all made appearances for the final minutes of the match.
