With rain falling from lunchtime, on pitches already saturated, I decided to head east where the rain wasn’t forecast to arrive until around 4 o’clock, so I could be guaranteed of getting a game in (with the hosts playing on an artificial pitch), as well as staying dry. However, on arrival, it became apparent that the match wasn’t being played on the 3G pitch, but on a grass pitch that was around 50 yards away, but running parallel. There was no problem whatsoever with the pitch, but unfortunately the rain arrived an hour and a half early.
It was second bottom versus third from top, in the league table. It looked very much like ending scoreless, but Tudor edged in front just after the hour mark, then looked to have sewn it up when a corner was headed into the net with nine minutes left. A minute into stoppage time Faversham scored a penalty, awarded for a foul, then two minutes later scored their second spot kick, awarded for a handball to block a shot.
