Slough Town travelled to Bromley in Kent on a
dry, chilly Tuesday night and picked up a convincing 4-0 win. This
win has boosted us up into 6th place on goal difference ahead of
Worthing, Croydon Athletic and Leatherhead, all on 49 points.
Rebels settled in well early on and it is a mystery how it took us
35 minutes to get on the scoresheet. Glen Harris hit a long ball
upfield that found Ian Hodges (pictured left) on the left wing. He
cut it back into the area and into the path of the oncoming Tony
Boot who slotted the ball past their 'keeper. The Rebels doubled
their lead on 47 minutes when Ian Hodges hit the ball in from close
range following a good cross from "crab person" Ryan
Williams (pictured below right). The amazing fact was that it was
just past half-time and the game was already all but finished.
didn't look like scoring for the rest of the match. However, during
the course of the 90 minutes they had cross after cross flying in
from the left that went past the face of goal and evaded everyone.
Slough put the game beyond Bromley when Ian
Hodges threaded the ball across the goal for Glen Harris to tuck in
from close range. It was now a matter of wheather or not Slough
would blow it or not.
did have a goal dissallowed for some reason or another. Tony Boot
(pictured left) fired the ball into the back of the net from inside
the area and, after all the celebrations from the Slough players and
fans, the referee consulted his linesman and dissallowed the goal.
Less than two minutes later Ian Hodges ran
through on goal and, there's no other way to put it, I felt he
dived! The referee immediately brandished a red card at their
'keeper and awarded Slough a penalty. A Bromley defender took charge
between the sticks but couldn't stop Tony Boot's (pictured left)
The rest of the game wasn't really any sort of
contest and Slough didn't need to try. This leaves us on a good run
of form with four straight wins going into Saturday's game with
Staines Town in a six-pointer.
