Won 5 – 2
Scorers: Matt Hammond, Ed Matthew’s, Chris Podd, Kai Brown, Shane Godwin
Canterbury travelled to Ashford looking to continue their strong start to the season by hopefully repeating the preseason result against the same team. Ashford lined up with a stronger team with some players returning however Canterbury were still confident.
It was Canterbury that struck 1st as a well taken PC was converted by Matt Hammond before Ashford struck back. Canterbury then found a better level of control with first Kai then Shane followed by Poddy finding the net to go in to half time 4-2 up. The 2nd half was more scrappy and the game didn’t flow as well however Steady was able to nudge home from close range in the resulting goal line scramble from a PC. Good points on the road and top of the league.
