Phoenix into the 3rd round of the Kent Senior Trophy
On Saturday the 30 th November Phoenix faced Holmesdale at home in the Kent Senior Trophy.
After 2 cracking league wins on the previous Saturdays the squad were up for a hatrick of wins.
To be fair it was not a aclassic match, Phoenix got off to a slow start (again) and found ourselves 1 down after 9 mins, a mistake at the back lead to Nick Wybrow breaking through a scoring a decent goal.
Phoenix hit back 1 min later with a decent move a great finish from new signing Billy Bennett ( Lenny's son!!)
On 38mins Center back Chris Hill was on the score sheet with another decent finish, Phoenix leading 2-1 at Half time.
The game never really got going in the 2nd half, at times we thought we were watching a pre season friendly and the warm bar + cold beer was looking a lot better option for some supporters.
But then up steps Chrisy Orange who scores a screamer into the top corner from 30 yards!!!! It was the highlight of a average game and earned him the MOM award and £20.
Luke Colman dispatched a penalty for the away side on 84 mins, so Phoenix had to hold on at the end.
But in the end we won 3-2, not a classic, but that keeps Phoenix in the Cup and another win is good for the team.
Next up this coming Saturday we are away to Canterbury City.
There is a coach laid on for travelling players and supporters. £10 adults £5 children. Please let us know if you would like to come away, the coach will be leaving at 12.00.
