The Reserves got back to winning ways on Saturday, after being knocked out of the Division 1 Cup at the quarter-final stage last Tuesday at top of the table Whitstable. The team travelled to Bromley Common to play Holmesdale with a very youthful team and the under 18 boys making their debut for the Reserves can be especially proud of their efforts.
The Rams got off to a flying start when Mitchell Knight peeled round the back from a corner to slide in within the first minute. For the next twenty minutes the boys really took a stranglehold on the game and should/could have been 3 nil up in the opening half hour. But as has been the story of the season a momentary lack of concentration cost the team when Holmesdale took a quick free kick, made two passes, before firing home from the edge of the box.
Ramsgate came out in the second half all guns blazing and despite missing a glorious chance just after half time the pressure was rewarded when substitute Kane Rowland glanced in a corner at the near post. Ramsgate continued to press and should have extended their lead but were denied by good goalkeeping, the woodwork and the unbelievable decisions not to award at least two penalties.
A great result that moves the team up the table and they go to Margate on Tuesday night full of confidence and looking to maintain their 100% record in the Floodlight Trophy.
Reserves: Brett Mills, Ben Munday, Josh Merry, Anthony Woodward (Josh McAteer 70), Oli Frewin, Macaulay Durling, Joe Hickman (c), Dan Hughes, Mitchell Knight, Martin Austin, Jake Regan (Kane Rowland 50)
