Match Report - 17 Jan 2009, Borden Village FC 1st XI lost to Woodstock

Borden desperate to put some points on the board came away empty handed on a day they thought they at least should have secured a draw Woodstock fielding three Norton players with current Kent league experience started brightly and took the game to Borden by launching a series of attacks The Borden defence appeared to be coping well until a long clearance from the home side caught the Borden defence square and Tommy Price was allowed in to slot the ball past the advancing keeper and give Woodstock the lead The goal seemed to wake up Borden who then took the initiative to attack the home defence and after 20 mins Borden were awarded a penalty when Scott Forster was brought down and Mark Barker stepped up to fire past Mark Rees Then came total confusion as the referee disallowed the goal by penalising a Borden player for encroachment and instead of the usual retake awarded an indirect free kick to the home side The decision failed to unsettle Borden who showed great character and within minutes they were rewarded with an equaliser when Barker put Scott Forster through to drive the ball firmly home Ten minutes later drama at the other end came when Woodstock were awarded a penalty which was converted to restore their lead Minutes before the break the visitors found themselves further behind when Price fastened on to a loose ball in the six yard box to extend their lead Borden came out in the second period determined not to throw in the towel and for long periods had the better of exchanges and with ten minutes remaining new signing Michael Rose set up Forster who from 20 yards out unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top right hand corner in so doing throwing out a lifeline for Borden With seconds remaining Borden won a corner and with Woodstock failing to clear their lines the ball fell to Nicky Fuller whose goal bound shot hit a defender and was deflected over the bar Afterwards Borden’s manager Knocker Williams felt that his team had done enough to share the points and was disappointed that his side had nothing to show for the way that they had battled tirelessly throughout the game
