Orpington FC V Drummond Athletic 13/04/2019

Orpington FC finished their season in 4th by thrashing Drummond Athletic 4-1. The home side took an early opening lead through striker, James Ludford, after he was played through by Charlie Norcott down the left and finishing brilliantly into the bottom corner (7th minute). Full back Harry Sharp made it 2-0 after great team play involving Henry Douglas, Yahaya Kamara and James Ludford. Drummond Athletic struggled to cope with the intensity of the O's attack.

Drummond pulled a goal back through their No.9 just before half time after timing his run and beating the offside trap (42nd mins). Five minutes into the second half Orpington were awarded a penalty when the Drummond goalkeeper appeared to have kicked out against Orpington attacker Ben Charles.

Matthew Bishop grabbed his first goal of the game, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way from 12 yards after smashing his penalty into the top right corner, giving Orpington a 3-1 lead (50th mins). Orpington winger Henry Douglas sealed the game after a great individual effort from inside his own half, dancing past two defenders before slotting past Drummond's goalkeeper to take his side 4-1 up and wrap up victory.
