First Team 2 Erith Town 0

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Byron Walker's quickfire double earned Sevenoaks Town a 2-0 win over Erith Town at Greatness Park on Wednesday night. The victory moved Town into seventh place in the table in the first of three successive home games. 

 

Ashford boss Danny Lye and assistant Shaun Welford together with Fisher's Gary Abbott were on scouting missions among the small crowd.

 

Walker put away two simple first half chances following good build-up, but missed out on a hat-trick in the second half, as Town spurned the chance to ease to a more comprehensive victory.

 

Erith's main gripe on the night concerned an incident in the opening five minutes when they were convinced Town goalkeeper Oshane Brown had handled outside the area as he closed down on James Hawkins.

 

Town went close twice early on as Billy Bennett - playing against the club where father Ricky is assistant manager - and Steve Camacho saw efforts cleared off the line.

 

Walker, who had been frustrated by offside flags earlier, struck first after 26 minutes. Bennett and Greg Benbow combined on the left for the latter to claim another assist, crossing for Walker to score into an empty net.

 

Walker put another chance over the bar soon afterwards but was celebrating his second, moments later putting away Keiron McCann's left wing cross.

 

Steve Camacho pulled off the third goalline clearance of the night in the second half, before Harrison Carnegie, Walker and Bennett missing out on adding to Town's lead.
