|Lordswood got back to winning ways
with this great win at Deal Town to remain unbeaten in the Kentish
Observer League, writes Darrell Harman.
Lordswood got off to a brilliant start when they took an eleventh minute lead.
It started when Ray Broad put Andy Doerr in and his shot was saved by the onrushing goalkeeper Robert Lindley, but the ball went out to Bob Chiverton, whose cross was volleyed in by Doerr from ten yards.
Deal equalised after 16 minutes when Danny Smith saw his mis-hit cross sail over Gavin Hopper's head and into the net.
Three minutes later Lordswood went close when Mike Cunningham headed Chiveton's cross over the bar.
Deal came close to scoring after 32 minutes but
Lordswood cleared the ball off the line following a fumble from the former
Chatham Town goalkeeper.
