Rory Smith: Corner Routine Didn't go as Planned but Decision Paid off


Ramsgate faced Sevenoaks on Saturday afternoon, drawing 1-1 in what was a mid-table clash. 

Rory Smith opened the scoring for Ramsgate in spectacular fashion, only for Sevenoaks' Frankie Sawyer to equalise in a bizarre manner shortly after. 

Despite earning a point, Smith admitted his side were disappointed not to come away with the three points on the weekend. 

"Definitely disappointed. I thought it was a game we probably should've won and we had the chances to do so," Rory said. 

"We most certainly aren't coming away angry with ourselves. It's a great point away from home, but it's frustrating,"

"And actually, at the same time, Sevenoaks could've nicked it themselves at the end there."

The main talking point from the game though, from a Ramsgate perspective, was the manner in which Smith gave Ramsgate a 1-nil lead. 

The forward admitted he didn't do was he was supposed to, but his decision paid off.

"We have a corner routine set up, me and Chapman involved," Rory said. 

"He (Chapman) acts as the disguise, did the back heel to me and I'm actually supposed to square it once in the box, but on this occasion there were too many bodies in the box," 

"I went for the shot at the tight angle and fortunately it went through the goalkeeper's legs and into the back of the net,"

"We've tried it a couple of times this season and it hasn't worked to plan, so it was good to execute it perfectly."
