1st XI 4 - 0 Old Malburians
After a tough few weeks KCSOBS 1st XI were desperate to get back to winning ways against familiar foes Old Malburians. Despite frequent dominance, these are opponents who we have struggled to put away in previous encounters. That was to change emphatically.
Correcting the errors of the previous week, KCS started very much on the font foot, winning individual duals and first to everything. Rock solid at the back, we converted our early pressure via a classic amateur football goal. The opposition keeper having claimed a cross conspired to throw his clearance straight in the air to a hitherto dominant Tommy McElligott. His first time volleyed lob was a piece of class very much in contrast to the clearance. 1-0. KCS closed out the half confidently surviving an outrageous penalty claim along the way. It hit me on the chest, honest.
King's were simply too good in the second half building on our dominance with an increasing swagger in attack. A great move from the back culminated in Calum being set free down the left to square for Fred Howell to finish a fine move at the back post. In the final quarter, Phippsy finally got his reward for a typically industrious display as he rounded the keeper and Angel added further gloss with another successful free kick.
The 3 points marked a moment of history taking us to our highest ever total in the Premier division. Buoyed by this result, we head into next weeks glamour tie with Charterhouse sitting 3rd in the table (admittedly having played a few games more than our rivals).
Goals: McElligott, Howell, Phipps, Angel
