Rams stung by Hornets' equaliser

Today the Rams returned to home action, with Horsham's first visit since November 2014, and with the Hornets one place and a point behind Ramsgate in the table it had all the makings of an equally close contest on the pitch.

Horsham had started the match brightly in the first half and hit the bar in the 2nd minute but after that Rams had dominated play as their midfield, with Danny Lawrence outstanding, took control of the game.

Ramsgate dominated the second half, as well. Jake Mackenzie had hit the post in the 48th minute and Sam Lawford fired the rebound over. Ramsgate had further gone close with efforts from George Crimmen, Alfie Paxman and Tom Chapman, and if it hadn't been for some exceptional saves from the Hornets' 'keeper Josh Pelling the Rams would have taken the lead (pictured is Chapman being thwarted again by Pelling).

The duck was eventually broken when a great move down the right saw Tom Chapman cross for Alfie Paxman to slot home in the 68th minute. Unfortunately the win was not to be as a Scott Harris 77th minute equaliser, against the run of play and following a mistake in defence by the home team, gave Horsham a point that had seemed unlikely.

The Rams are at home again next Saturday, 25 March, when they welcome Godalming Town,
