Snodland Town 0 – 4 Kennington
We come away from Snodland with all 3 points after a hard fought 4-0 win that moves us up to 2nd in the table.
Tom Scorer got us off to the perfect start in just the 3rd minute as he drove well into the box and saw his shot deflected through the legs of the Snodland keeper.
Unfortunately that was the only real entertainment of a rather dull first half for both sides as we took a 1-0 lead into the break.
A highly entertaining second half was kicked off with a Snodland player being given his marching orders after a very late challenge on midfielder Gary Clarke.
We wasted no time in using the extra man advantage as Tom Scorer once again drove into the box before rifling his shot low towards the front post giving the the keeper no chance.
Winger Joe Fisher was then introduced to the game and made an instant impact as good work down the left from Tom Scorer and Gary Lockyer ended with a low cross from Lockyer finding Joe Fisher at the back post for him to cooly slot home.
The game was wrapped up when forward Gary Lockyer was brought down inside the box by the Snodland keeper. Joe Fisher stepped up confidently to complete his brace.
With only minutes left the referee awarded the most bizarre penalty to the hosts which was superbly saved by keeper Tom Barnes to give him a well deserved clean sheet.
A massive thank you to fantastic travelling support of over 50 and great to see so many female spectators in the crowd.

We travel tomorrow without services of midfielder Brad Jordan and defender Ross Lawrie who both miss out with personal commitments.
We do however welcome back goal keeper Tom Barnes from his one game suspension as well as winger Tyla Clements and top goal scorer Sam Conlon after they missed out on last weekends impressive 2-1 win over FC Elmstead.
We also welcome new signing Jack Negus to the club. Jack is a highly technical full back who joins us on loan from Hythe Town. He will go straight into the squad for tomorrow.

Kennington 3 – 3 Lydd Town – Attendance 288
(Goal Scorers – Sam Conlon, Gary Clarke, Tom Scorer)
Not the perfect end to 2018 but a great day for the 300+ spectators that enjoyed a 3-3 thriller in this afternoons festive derby with Lydd Town.
The visitors by far the better side in the first half and took the lead twice through forward Matt Martin with Sam Conlon levelling in between.
The major turning point however was the dismissal of keeper Tom Barnes just before the half time break. Midfielder Craig Calvert converting the resulting free-kick past stand in keeper Sam Brown to give the visitors a 3-1 lead at the break.
The reaction from the players second half was brilliant as Gary Clarke pulled a goal back minutes into the half with a well placed volley.The pressure continued to pile on and Tom Scorer was on hand to bring the scores level just before the hour mark after controlling brilliantly with his chest before striking the ball well across goal.
With chances continuing to come it could have been a brilliant fight back for 3 points but ultimately a draw a fair result considering the circumstances.
We would like to say a massive thank you to both sets of fans and the neutrals that came out in full force today and gave the players a fantastic atmosphere. We hope you all enjoyed the game and we wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year.
The countdown begins as we prepare for our biggest local derby of the season on Saturday when we welcome good friends Lydd Town to the Homelands Stadium.
With a large majority of players from both teams being local to the Ashford area and with players from both sides having previously played for their opponents it’s sure to be a fantastic feisty affair.
Our visitors had a rather indifferent start to the season with a squad full of new faces and I know manager Liam Smith has …had to be patient with his new look squad. However credit must go to Liam because his patience has proved to be the key to their turn in fortunes as Lydd have begun their resurrection and once again have become a very difficult side to beat, whilst playing some very free flow attacking football.
This weekend’s encounter is sure to be an absolute thriller and we hope as many people as possible can come along and enjoy the festivities whilst taking in this hard fought contest.
Kick-off is 3PM at Homelands Stadium.

Rochester United 3 – 5 Kennington
We come away from Rochester with 5-3 win against a strong battling side. Another very well deserved win on the road to keep us 3rd in the table for Christmas.
A slow start saw the hosts take the lead before midfielder Sam Brown levelled it up with a brilliant glancing header from a Joe Fisher corner.
Forward Sam Conlon then cooly slotted home to give us a 2-1 only for the hosts to reply moments later from a set piece.
A much brighter start to the second half saw us control the game from then on and the introduction of playmaker Tom Scorer and the returning Jordan King helped compose and orchestrate the possession of the ball.
Sam Conlon was the man to break the deadlock in the second half after being thread through one on one with the keeper, once again cooly slotting the ball home.
Gary Lockyer then scored with a well drilled effort from the edge of the area before Tom Scorer made a great solo run down the left side of the box before riffling the ball across goal and into the side netting.
A slight mishap in the final moments saw the ball curl back off the crossbar from a misplaced cross, for the Rochester forward to tap home.
Another victory that takes our unbeaten league run to 7 with 6 coming as wins.
A massive thank you to the 30 odd travelling fans today who looked very smart in their new Kennington woolly hats and scarfs.
