Match Report - 06 Feb 2016, Borden Village FC 1st XI drew with Snodland Town

The villagers faced a difficult away game to Snodland Town who are currently lying 3rd in the league, but battled away to go home with a share of the spoils. In the opening stages both teams had difficulty adapting to the high winds which hampered them from playing any football so the home side opted for the long ball over the top in an attempt to penetrate the visitors defence, but Borden held firm and dealt ably with any threats meaning keeper Charlie Donoghue was rarely troubled. After 30 mins Borden won a free kick just in side the oppositions half Sam Brown floated the ball in and George Latham found some space to powerfully head home. The second half saw Snodland take advantage of the wind and their tactics of playing the long ball had Borden defending for long periods but the villagers defended well and managed to break on more than one occasion with Latham causing problems to the home defence. With fifteen minutes remaining Snodland were eventually rewarded when they latched on to a ball over the top and with the Borden defence caught square fired the equaliser past the advancing Donoghue. Although it was disappointing for the villagers to concede a goal a draw was a fair result and a well earned point for Borden.
