Match Report - 20 Feb 2010, Borden Village FC 1st XI drew with Swale United

This eagerly awaited local derby ended with both teams level at the final whistle It was the home side that started brightest by launching a series of attacks and although Swale looked threatening they failed to penetrate a resilient Borden defence Having weathered the opening quarter Borden settled down and began to build on their start taking the inititive in midfield with Alan Whitehead getting a grip Meanwhile Borden’s Nicky Fuller, Phil Jackson and Mark Barker started to enjoy a fair share of possession and up front strikers Jay Law and Lee Marsh began to cause problems Borden almost took the lead but Lee Marsh’s volley produced a tremendous save from the home keeper The visitors forced a number of corners but the first half remained goal less Ten minutes after the break Swale broke the deadlock when Borden were awarded a free kick just inside their own half Mark Barker received the ball and lost possession when he was apparently fouled the referee waved play on and Swale’s Gary Harding got away from the Borden defence and pulled the ball leaving Scott Forster the easiest of chances to put the home side ahead Minutes later Swale were reduced to ten men when Gary Hake was dismissed for a second yellow and shortly after Borden scored a deserved equaliser when the pacey Adam Roxburgh went down the right and pulled that ball back for Borden’s Jay Law to sidestep the Swale defence and hammer an unstoppable shot into the top corner from 12 yards. Borden now looked the more likely to add to their tally and Ashley Taylor looked certain to score but was denied by a last ditch tackle by Andy Peters For the remainder of the game the Swale defence were kept busy containing the visitors but Swale managed to hold on for a share of the points.
