Glover’s late strike keeps hopes alive
Published 07/04/14



AN INJURY-HIT EMMER GREEN side went down to a narrow 2-1 defeat away to Senior Division leaders WRIGHTCHOICE GROUP.

The hosts races into a 1-0 first-half lead before doubling their advantage shortly after the interval.

Ten minutes later the visitors pulled a goal back when John Donegan netted from a goalmouth scramble.

Luke Glover netted a last-minute winner to keep KIDMORE END’S Premier Division title hopes alive with victory over struggling SHINFIELD RANGERS.

Shinfield took the lead minutes into the first half as their striker rifled in from 12 yards.


The home side, who for long periods struggled to get into the match, were given a lifeline when Shinfield had a player dismissed early into the second half for two bookable offences.

With the introduction of the lively Jason Cross and Matt Walker, Kidmore pushed on and grabbed an equaliser through right back Jamie Thomas as he finished from close range following a goalmouth scramble.

With minutes remaining, Glover rose highest to head home a Michael Butcher free kick from six yards.

HENLEY TOWN went down to a narrow 1-0 defeat away to league leaders RG ATHLETIC.

The hosts had much the best of the opening quarter-hour, with Henley sometimes looking intimidated by their physically stronger opponents.

After Craig Sinclair failed to take the sort of chance from which he normally scores, the home side went in front after 35 minutes from a well worked move. The Town attacked constantly in the second half, but a mixture of poor finishing and bad luck prevented them from scoring.

Henley had two goals disallowed, and, when Ricky Sidhu hit the underside of the crossbar, they made four attempts to force the ball over the line, all of which failed.

GORING UNITED ended their Division 1 West campaign with a 6-1 defeat away to SOUTHCOTE.

The visitors found them self 2-0 down at half-time. Southcote scored two more goals early in the second half before Jack Purser scored Goring’s consolation goal after an hour’s play.

Southcote scored two more goals while Goring were denied by the woodwork three times.

Goring now have a nervous wait to see if they have enough points to avoid relegation.
