Bridges earn a point away

After a hectic few days, Bridges returned to the football pitch with renewed desire to earn a point in an often scrappy game at Ramsgate.

It wasn't the best of first halfs however for a team back under the guidance of Paul Faili. Ollie Gray should have done better than head wide following an early free kick and the home side really should have connected better with some excellent long throws by Connor Sanders. They had looked dangerous down the right flank but their 36th minute goal came with some brilliant skill on the left by Gil Carvalho which ended with an inviting pinpoint cross which was headed home by TOM CHAPMAN.

James Shaw then did well to hold on to an effort from Rory Smith, who also saw a free kick from the left drift wide of the far post as a minute's additional time was indicated.

But Bridges looked a different side after the break with both George Gaskin and Alex Clark squandering decent openings. Three substitutions in a ten minute spell finally brought a valuable goal in the 67th minute. One of the introductions, Andrew Sesay, made a brilliant interception and his low cross from the left produced havoc in Ramsgate's goal before another of the substitutes, Ibby Akanbi, forced the ball over the line.
Gaskin came close to netting a winner after great work by the never say die Connor French, and the Bridges defence had to work hard to prevent a couple of Ramsgate counter attacks from bearing fruit, Shaw again happily hanging on to two goalbound efforts.

At least there were smiles on the faces of the Bridges contingent, but this is just the first step as they try to steer clear of the relegation spots.

This Saturday they entertain another side in the drop zone in Greenwich Borough, who have been boosting their numbers too in recent weeks.
