Boylee starts with a home win
On Saturday Phoenix 1st team faced Corinthian , a home tie in the SCEFL.
This was a big game for now sole manager Steve O'Boyle as it was his 1st after his long term side kick Tony Beckenham had stepped down as joint manager of Phoenix.
Steve proved that he was more than up for the challenge as he guided his Phoenix side to a 1-0 home win.
This was not a classic Phoenix performance, But you can't always play your best and to win when you dont is the sign of a decent side.
Phoenix were clearly the better side , but a very young Corinthian team did give us a decent match, In the 1st half both sides hit the post.
The 2nd half Phoenix got their winning and only goal via top goal scorer Ricky Freeman, to be honest the goal was a bit of a scruffy one, which summed up the match.
Hero of the game was Phoenix center half Scott Wibley who played on after a clash of heads and susstaining a nasty gash above his eye, with his head bandaged up Scott continued to win every header!!
That win made it 4 wins a 1 draw in the League and moved us up to 2nd place .
Next up on Saturday 6th Sept , Phoenix are away in the FA VASE !!! vs Croydon FC .
Please come along and support us !!!
Also this coming weekend our junior Kent Youth League sides start their 2014-15 leagues , so good luck to all of those Phoenix teams.
