COD ARMY HIT KENTISH FOR FIVE

At least the weather is warming up as Saturday's game at The Stade De Gosling was a much warmer affair than last weekend in the snow at Donkey Lane. There was still a chill in the air as Codicote welcomed Kentish Town for a Spartan South Midlands League Division One game that ended up with 5-1 to the home side.

Regular reader's of TheColdEnd will know about The Cod Army and some details about Kentish Town as I have featured both sides regularly over the past few seasons.


ABOVE - CODICOTE GOT THE BALL IN THE NET IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES BUT THIS ONE WAS FLAGGED OFFSIDE. VERY CLOSE BUT COD'S NUMBER 2 LOOKS LEVEL(ISH) WITH THE KTFC NUMBER SIX.

BELOW - CODICOTE'S NUMBER 8 IS DEFINITELY ONSIDE HERE BUT WAS FLAGGED OFF  


ABOVE - RESTRICTED VIEW AT THE GOSLING STADIUM. LUCKILY IN A CROWD OF TWENTY SIX THERE ARE LOTS OF SEATS TO CHOSE FROM.
Going into the game Kentish had only won seven of their thirty-one league games but three of those victories had come in the last six games against Stony Stratford Town, Kings Langley and Chesham United Reserves but on Saturday it was a day to forget for the Townies as aside from Lee Scott's goal who ran onto a quick long ball down field (so quick I missed it on camera) they didn't really trouble the home side in an attacking sense.

A small crowd of twenty six people mostly all connected with Kentish or Codicote witnessed (think i was the only neutral there) the game that was at poised at 2-1 until a spell of three goals in as many minutes in the second half collected the points for the home side.
