Kimberley MW 2-1 Radford FC (Friendly)

Radford got off to a cracking start when they took the lead after 3 minutes. From their third corner they took the lead when the ball ended up in the net after hitting the shoulder of a striker. Radford were looking good in the early stages and were playing some neat football. The Radford left back was guilty of a missed opportunity on 15 minutes. The ball was crossed in from the right wing over the defence, but instead of shooting he cut inside onto his right foot and his shot was blocked.
The Radford defence, had been playing well until 35 minutes into the game, they tried to play offside but a Kimberley striker timed his run perfectly, ran on and chipped the keeper from just inside the area.  A number of substitutions had been made after 30 minutes by Radford to try out new players but they were now looking disjointed. A Welfare free kick wide on the left went over the heads of all the players near the penalty spot and found the right winger near the far post, who headed narrowly wide of the upright.
Radford found a great attacking outlet on the left wing where their new French trialist was wreaking havoc. He was making several rampaging runs and in one beginning from the halfway line he beat four players before a rocket of a shot flew over the bar. Minutes later ‘Frenchie,’ sent over a perfect cross that found a striker but the Kimberley keeper saved the goal bound effort. As the game entered its final stages Kimberley were getting greater possession and this paid off when a forward raced through a static Radford defence to give the home side a 2-1 victory.
