Kingston "reigned" supreme
By Michael Guest
Chadlington allow Kingston Colts to control the game
The last time these two great teams met was the Final of the Blue Trophy Final where a majestic Chadlington secured their first trophy of the season. Today's game appeared light years from that monumental occasion.
Kingston are a good solid team and not to be under estimated, I sense that is exactly what the lads did.
Chadlington battled and competed well and had equal possession but a rather innocuous looping shot caught essensys off guard and the look of disbelief shone across the faces.............someone scored against us? how can that be?
this shouldve been the time for a revival but the glum mood continued and very soon a second goal came in the most scrappy and unfashionable of circumstances. 2.0 down, surely time to mix it up a bit?
Ford and England hustled and bustled in midfield and attempted to move the ball forward. Calvert looked busy before being swapped with Thomas who entered the field looking for a goal.
with seconds of the first half remaining Guest picked the ball up on his trusty left foot 5 yards outside the box, with a thunderbolt he smashed it into the top left hand corner............back in the game
Revved up and ready for the second half, it was Chad to get back but with some of the sloppiest and lacklustre football seen in Chads history we simply allowed them to slot home a 3rd...........not the Chad way.
Not deterred, the boys battled well and looked for some retribution, Hughes and Fagan tested the keeper, lads were swapped around looking for signs of energy but alas it wasnt our day............FT 3.1
