Under 15s go out of Cup to the Fleet
By Jim Rowe
Poor pitch no excuse for poor performance
Under 15s go out of cup to fleet
Angels 0 Ebbsfleet 4
Angels hope of progressing to the semi finals of the Faversham cup were dashed in the first 10 minutes of this cup encounter.
On a bobbly Hadlow pitch that Angels never really came to terms with they went a goal down very early on and were 2 nil down in the first 10 minutes which knocked the stuffing out of the boys a bit. The boys dug in until half time but had only really created 2 or 3 half chances in the first half and the game didn't really have a feeling of a quarter cup final.
Second half and the boys did come out of the blocks flying for the first 15 mins taking the game to Ebbsfleet but again struggled to create any real goal scoring chances. The boys struggled to get any balls in behind the Fleet defence and get them turned. Angels continued to try and play their passing football from defence but Ebbsfleet adapted to the pitch much better and it was a disappointing result for the Angels in probably their worst performance of the season, Ebbsfleet adding a further two goals in the second half and fully deserving their win.
The lads now have to pick themselves up as they face their second quarter final next week in the Kent Cup away to Kennington.
