Match Report - 10 Dec 2011, Borden Village FC 1st XI beat TENTERDEN TOWN
Borden travelled to lowly Tenterden on Saturday in search of their first away win and were delighted to return with all three points. During the opening stages play was pretty even but the visitors had the lions share of possession. The home team however looked dangerous on the break and forced a number of corners which were dealt with by a competent defence with keeper Michael Neat in commanding form. Dan Mills playing in the back four in place of James Beech, who had work commitments, settled in well dealing with threats and tidying up competently. On the half hour Borden’s Joe Jones broke free but was held back a home defender and was clearly denied a scoring opportunity current rules should have seen the defender walk but the referee saw it differently and no card was produced. Minutes later Jones found himself free again and unleashed a power full shot that the home keeper could only parry and Nicky Fuller was at hand to capitalise on the rebound and to give Borden the lead. The second half belonged to Borden and with twenty minutes remaining Borden increased their lead and it was Nicky Fuller who shot home from close range to secure the points. Afterwards Borden’s manager Knocker Williams was delighted with the win and complimented his team for a well deserved win. 18 year old Tom Green had a superb game in midfield for Borden and will be one to watch for the future.
