Faversham continued their pre-season with a bruising home defeat by Ashford on Saturday.

By Mike Juden

The hosts lost Matt Suter to a dislocated elbow early on but took control at the breakdown as the first half wore on. Following some quick ball down the left-hand side, captain Rhys Mcdermott drew in two defenders before offloading to Terry Kindred who showed good pace to run all the way to the line from deep inside his own half. Billy Egleton converted superbly in blustery conditions to give Faversham a well-deserved lead.

Ashford grew into the game, utilising their powerful runners, and they crashed over in the corner for an unconverted score before repeating the trick 10 minutes later to seize a 10-7 advantage.

Moments later, Simon Jaynes was shown yellow for a high tackle but 14-man Faversham were resolute and continued to attack in numbers. That persistence paid off when an Ashford player was also sin-binned for a similar offence, Nick Kingdom forced a mistake and from the resulting five-metre scrum, the ball was slipped wide for Dave Tabor to touch down. Egleton this time couldn’t convert.

The Castaways increased their lead to nine in a frenetic start to the second half as Chris Gadhile chased a huge up and under into space from Egleton. He got the luck of the bounce and helped himself to a score under the posts, with Egleton converting.

As the match became an increasingly attritional affair, Ashford threatened the Faversham line and eventually bundled over from a close-range penalty, adding the extra two points. Another converted score for the visitors followed to seal the win - but the match was full of positives as Faversham continue to build towards their first league game in Kent 2 in a fortnight’s time.
