Pre Season Friendly
Tuesday 18th July 2017
Kick Off 19.30 Actual 19.32
F.C. Elmstead 4 Hildenborough Athletic 1, attendance 22
@ Coney Hall Recreation Ground
No admission or programme.
Elmstead, who play in the Southern Counties League Division 1, were far too strong for the visitors, who last season finished second bottom in the Premier Division of the Kent County League. Goals on 19, 21 and 52 minutes put them well in command. Hildenborough got a consolation goal on 76 minutes before Elmstead added their fourth two minutes later.
With a ridiculously late scheduled kick off time, considering there were no floodlights, it was no surprise that the Referee blew for full time eight minutes early, when it began to rain and visibility was becoming very poor.
