Reserves off to a winning start
Biggleswade FC Res 1 - 4 Town Res
After sitting out game week one Kempston Town & Bedford College Reserves got off to a winning start against newly formed Biggleswade FC Reserves who were coming into this game off the back of a 5-5 draw last week.
The first real chance for Town came in the 34th minute. A long ball forward was collected by Kurtis Alleyne who went round two defenders and the keeper only to see the keeper swipe his legs out as he was going to slot the ball into the empty net. Justin Newman stepped up but unfortunately for him and Town his powerful effort from the spot was too high and he saw the ball travel the wrong side of the cross bar.
Town were punished five minutes later some good build up play from Biggleswade saw a lovely floated cross into the box that their centre forward calmly volleyed into the back of the net to give them a one nil lead.
Town looked to be heading in to half time one nil down but two minutes before the break another long ball forwarded bounced in the penalty area. As the keeper went to catch the ball the lively Alleyne beat him in the air to the ball and rolled it into an unguarded net meaning Town went in level at the break.
On the hour mark Newman made up for his miss from the spot. A Chris Wright corner was met on the run by Newman. He climbed the highest and powered the ball past keeper and defenders on the Biggleswade line.
Town were to score to further goals in the game but before adding to their score line Matt Mann in the Town goal was called into action saving two one on ones and Newman and Daniel Church also made important blocks from Biggleswade shots.
Town did put the game out of sight on the 70th minute when Daniel Green cut in from the left and powered the ball in at the keepers near post. Just two minutes later it was 4 when Newman again met a corner on the run, this time with a diving header, when the Biggleswade defender looked favourite to win it.
Next Week Town Reserves entrain Cople & Bedford SA at home. Cople have yet to play this season so are coming into the game straight off the back of preseason. Kick off is 2:30pm.
