The game was a much closer affair than the score suggests. A fairer result would have been 8 – 3.
It was played in a good spirit with minimal running and violent tackling.
Scoring was as follows 1 – 0, 1 – 1, 2 – 1, 2 – 2, 2 – 3, 3 – 3, 4 – 3, 5 – 3. Half-time. 6 – 3, 7 – 3, 8 – 3, 9-3
Canterbury were a little taken aback with the 20yd wide goals, and found the ball skimming off the polished hard floor a little difficult to cope with. Folkestone used a small ball… might have been a tennis ball…
The outstanding player for folkestone was centre back Stefan Rossbach. Reads the game superbly and extremely difficult to get past. I know, as I couldn’t get past him…
Canterbury had no man of the match… they were all heroes… although Peter was slightly more of a hero with his 2 goals.
It was an honest game of footy and the Canterbury lads left beaten but not down. The Folkestone team were inconsolable that they hadn’t scored more goals and were only 2nd in the league below Baycity Strollers on goal difference.
Thank you to Folkestone for your hospitality.
