what a cracker from big ac!!!
On Tuesday eve Phoenix hosted Ashford Utd in the 1st of our 2 encounters in the SCEFL.
After losing on pens two weeks ago in the Kent Senior Trophy , Phoenix were keen on revenge,
To be honest Phoenix had a shocking start and gifted Ashford with as own goal in the 1st 5 minutes.. Ashford then should have scored a 2nd missing from close range.
After about 20 minutes Phoenix got into the game and started to compete, we equaliesed through Alex Nelson and then big Andy Constable made it 2-1 before half time with a header from a corner.
the 2nd half started much as the 1st with Ashford scoring from a looping free kick, 2-2
Phoenix then had a massive shout for a penalty as AC was pushed over in the box, The ref was too far away to see it and the lino ( well i cant say what i want to say)
It was nip and tuck all game , then Nelson got on the end of a great Richie free kick and it was 3-2.
From the kick off Ashford equalised with a weird looping header that caught everyone out.
We were all saying it was a decent point against Ashord, when up steps AC, he hit a volley from 40 yards out which looped over the Ashford keeper and that was it Game over 4-3!!!!
A great winning goal that gave us three Lovely ponts.
Well done chaps!!!
The previous Saturday Phoenix sufferred a 3-1 home loss against table topping Whyteleafe .
It was a shame as we drew level at 1-1 with 15mins to go, But a good goal from leafe and a late penalty secured the win for them
