Kettering Town U15 vs Stoke Rtc
Kettering Welcomed Stoke to a new venue today which privided a great location for the return game as Kttering played Stoke 2 weeks ago.
The pitch was flat and the weather was cold but the rain stayed away.
Stoke started realy well and on the front foot but Ketterings resolve and defending which has improoved massively in the last few weeks as its been a focus in training kept the visitors at bay - but they did break through and stoke went 0 - 1 up.
The game ebed and flowed and Ketering got backin the game 5 minutes from the end of the 2nd 20 with a well worked goal that Keegan Halsey tucked away from 15 yards out.
The game started in a realy great way with both teams playing and working the ball through the thirds, a defensive error in the Kettering defence alowed the striker to poach a goal which was a ard one to take.
The game continued with Kettering missing opportunities to tie the game or even go ahead if the chances had been taken, the game remained 1 - 2 until 5 minutes from time with Kettering defending superbly and blocking and stopping eveything that stoke could give,but then from a corner a laps of concentration let Stoke hit a third goal against the run of play.Then a coue of minutes after stoke scored again from a deflected free kick - cruel to take a 1 - 4 win against and a slightly unjust score line but thats football.
All coaching staff and players had a great day apart from the win and loosing senario and Kettering wish Stoke a good travel home and we will see you again soon.
