Now it is coming to an end without notice – discussion or consultation.

Herne Bay United makes work of 3 points

Posted by  on January 24, 2011


Herne Bay United faced Letchworth at the weekend and knows that every game for them now is like a cup final if they want to keep the pressure on the league leaders and retain the National title. United couldn’t of started any better or so it seemed with Brendan Barker getting United’s first within 30 seconds of the start, but Letchworth took only another 30 seconds to equalize from a defensive error and a deflection to beat Daniel Barton. United kept on with the pressure and pushing up on Letchworth, Captain Hosking got two quick goals giving United the edge and the breathing space they needed. United kept on trying but a now warmed up Ben Howes was proving to be a strong final line of defence, Letchworth never gave up fighting for the chances and continued trying. Somehow United lost their way and were looking disjointed and out of sync, not taking any of the multiple chances they were creating. Some slight changes to the team and after a much needed time out the last five minutes was an improvement, United’s new signing Danny Butcher from RHC Invicta got his first Premier League goal for United with Karl Smith quickly following up within a minute with an unstoppable volley.

A Strong Three points for the Kings

Herne Bay United King’s got the season underway finally after the last games have all fallen foul to the weather that has caused so much disruption over the last month and were happy to get back to it and what will now be a busy and important rest 5 months of the season. United were away to Manchester and needed a performance to put pressure back on the current league leaders, with the League showing four possible contenders. United didn’t start well and Manchester’s two new signings from Italy and Portugal Poalo D’Annotro and Pedro Castro caused immediate effect with two quick goals putting United on the back foot.

Happy New Year From HBU!
