We beat the ref 2-0.....

Another of those when we would have bitten off any hand offering a point before kick off. None did though so we didn't have to. Which was fortunate for us because, if one did and we had done so,we would have missed a team performance that must surely rank as one of GFC's best yet.

We seen some good goals recently and yesterday's continued that trend. Firstly a neat run and through ball by Glyn Dyer presented an opportunity for Marc McGrath, who finished with aplomb. Then Ross Allen gave the 'keeper no chance with a fine free kick from just outside the box.

Faversham were a little fortunate to go in at the break just two down. We learnt that being sent sprawling in the box following a 2 handed shove in the back doesn't merit the award of a penalty but tripping yourself up with nobody claiming a free kick will get you booked for simulation. To be fair to him, by the end of the match both sets of fans had referee Oliver Jackson trailing behind an outbreak of cholera in a snap popularity poll.

The second half mainly took place in our own half. A brief cameo from Blair Howitt was followed by unrelenting pressure from the home side. Chris Tardif played another blinder, in front of the defending was bordering on heroic. It was all hands to the pump, even Ross Allen was getting stuck in mere yards from our own goal line. If you haven't seen them already the GFC TV highlights are well worth a look.

A fantastic effort all round and a hard earned but well deserved three points.

Tomorrow sees a trip to Carshalton Athletic. A look at the league table then a scroll down to the form guide suggests we go there as favourites for the win but from what we were told at Salters Lane expect a scratch squad to be announced for the journey.

If you're thinking of going a bit of useful information can be found on the 'away days' page. Steve, when I said the Sun yesterday I meant the Hope, but the Sun's good too. Unlike the tawdry rag of the same name, of course.

Keep it Green
