A fantastic performance by Ashford saw them beat a determined Kempston side (who were chasing a play off spot) by 3-1.
The match started with Kempston showing their intent to try and get a result from this game by chasing and closing down the Ashford players and attacking at every opportunity, Ashford's defence weathered the storm and held firm and kept them out ably assisted by the midfield coming back to help out.
Slowly but surely Ashford came more into the game making good use of the gaps left by the high pressing Kempston defence and an excellent defence splitting pass put Mark Bitmead in on goal he made no mistake and deftly chipped the ball over the on rushing keeper and into the back of the net,this took the wind out of Kempston sails and now it was Ashford's turn to attack at every opportunity and again good work by the midfield put Mark Bitmead in on goal and again he made no mistake and smashed the ball into the net.
The 2nd half started and once again Kempston pressed, going close several times, the game ebbed and flowed each side creating chances, Kempston were attacking and ball went out for a corner, over came the ball and under pressure from the Kempston players Tyler Tobin missed the ball and it hit Scot Weight on the leg and into the goal, this OG encouraged and gave heart to the Kempston players who were by now looking tired and they tried to get the equaliser which again left gaps in their defence, and a superb pass put Dan Fleming in on goal and he slotted the ball home.
Kempston still played to their game plan but by now looked like a beaten team and when the final whistle blew Ashford celibrated an excellent win against a strong opponent.

Totally agree with smoking- gun, this was an excellent performance from the Ash Trees, one of the best of the season. We should end up in the top half , which is very good as this is a really tough league.

Well done to Ben and the boys , 3 good goals and a decent team performance, Lets hope we can finish the season off on a high with a few good results. Also I'd like to see how good the French boy is so maybe a start for him is in order.

Two small corrections Mr. Gun!


We were 3-0 up weren't we before Kempston scored and the og was from Russell not Weighty.  Otherwise would agree that it was a very good performance.
