Development In Fine Form

By Simon Dickens

In the Uhlsport Hellenic Division One West, Kidlington Development have beaten title chasers twice in 4 days.

On Wednesday of last week they comfortably dispatched Cheltenham Saracens by 6 goals to 1 and on Saturday they travelled to Thornbury Town, who also have aspirations of winning the league and deservedly came away with a 2 - 1 victory.
The Greens started well and after 10 minutes Aaron Morton slid home to give the visitors the lead, a great finish after a slick move. Kidlington held this lead until deep into the second half, however Thornbury were awarded a penalty on 72 minutes which was stroked home by Craig Lancastle.
The match ebbed and flowed and both sides looked like they could win with chances being created at either end. In the event a clumsy challenge from Thornbury’s goalkeeper meant the Greens were awaded a penalty. Up stepped Callum Rice to take it, but Callums attempt was well saved by stand in goalie Brandan Benjamin.
This looked like the last opportunity of the match, however The Greens were awarded another penalty on 87 minutes for a foul on Jordan Parker. The confident Parker dusted himself down and steered his spot kick into the corner of the net for the winner.
Played in front of a good home crowd this was a memorable victory for The Greens Development outfit.

Next up is an OFA Intermediate Cup Final to be played at Oxford City FC on Saturday night,kick off 6.30pm against North Berks outfit Watlington Town.
