Radcliffe 1 Vs 3 Kendal Town Match Report:


A Kendal double in the last 10 minutes sends them home with the three points.

First Half:

The Boro started the liveliest and took an early lead in the ninth minute after nice control and vision by Carl peers down the right side picked out Theo Brierley who had no problems scoring from close range.

Franny Barry then had a chance to make it two, after a cross wasn’t dealt with by the Kendal defence and Barry was sliding to meet the ball, connected with it but Will Kitchen could make an easy save in the 15th minute.

Peers had a go just after twenty minutes as he looked to beat the keeper at his bottom corner, but his shot was just a little weak and Kitchen could just gather the ball and clear the danger.

Peers was in again soon after this time his shot curled off target after some nice build up play by the home side.

After this both teams struggled to create any chances and get shots on target in the last fifteen minutes of the half.

Radcliffe controlled the game in the first half and the visitors didn’t get a look in with the hosts going forward at every possibility, Kendal struggled to get forward and create chances.

Half Time Score: Radcliffe 1-0 Kendal Town

Second Half:

Kendal came out the second half the better team and started to take control of possession and dictate the game.
The visitors had their first real chance of the game in the 57th minute, after Robert Bowman timed his run perfectly to latch onto a ball over the top of the Boro defence. He looked to catch Ryan Jones out as he was caught off his line, but Bowman’s shot luckily for the hosts went off target.

Kendal finally did get the equaliser as the Boro defence just couldn’t withstand the pressure from the visitors any longer. Bowman could simply tap the ball home after a lovely move started by a cracking ball over the top by Ben Thomas picked out Richard Seear who then returned it back to Thomas and his cross picked out Matthew Clarke whose shot was saved. The ball was crossed back in and Bowman was there to tap home his chance.

The visitors could have gone in front in the 78th minute after Jones had to make a great diving save after a dangerous looking cross was whipped in, Jones was equal to it.

In the 80th minute Kendal did go in front. After a fantastic run by Clarke who beat Dimitri Nkusu for pace down the wing and he picked out Seear who had no trouble converting his chance from close range.

The visitors then wrapped up the game in the 87th minute. After Boro were caught pushing too many players forward looking for the equaliser to rescue a point from the game. John-Paul Stanway ran at the Boro defenders who had stayed back and got past them easily. Jones came rushing off his line to try and meet Stanway but Stanway breezed past him and could simply walk the ball into the goal.
