Weakened Rams struggle in 2nd half

It turned out to be a tough opening day of the season for Ramsgate, who were missing several key players, as they were beaten by a Phoenix Sports team making their first League trip to Southwood.

The game got off to a slow start and both Danny Young and Dajon Golding went close before, on 25, a break on the left saw Golding centre for Frank Sawyer to slot home. The Rams equalised on 43 when Adam Woollcott, making his home league debut, smashed home from the edge of the area, after Alfie Paxman had caused havoc in the visitor’s defence.

Rams looked to be getting on top of an even 2nd half but two quick fire goals from James Fitchett and Dojan Golding on 77 and 79 ensured that the visitors went home with the points, despite the Rams hitting the crossbar as the Phoenix ‘keeper back-pedalled into his own net in the 84th minute, with Chapman unable to connect cleanly with the rebounding ball in front of the goal.

For a fuller report, see the Match Centre below.

On Tuesday the Rams should have a couple of the players available again for their visit to Salters Lane to play Faversham.
