Lordswood 0-4 Ramsgate
Pre-season friendly – 13th August
Match Report from Ramsgate
Ramsgate set the tempo from the off, dominating possession and getting in behind as Lordswood dropped deep, and that was the story throughout.
KEY MOMENT: T.Chapman put Ramsgate ahead with a prolific finish inside the box after the forward was picked out by Prescott. Exquisite pass matched with an outstanding finish.
Morrish smashed an effort onto the post following excellent work from T.Chapman down the right-wing. The winger left the full-back for dead before teeing up Morrish on the edge of the 18-yard box.
Miller had a great opportunity to double the advantage at the half-hour mark. Wilson found Miller with a great cross from the left but Miller put his shot just wide.
Just moments later, the referee questionably turned down a penalty appeal, and then T.Chapman thumped an effort onto the bar inside the box as the pressure continued to mount for Lordswood.
KEY MOMENT: Wilson earned Ramsgate’s second of the game in the 35th minute, scoring from an incredibly tight-angle. The Lordswood goalkeeper should do much better.
George Nikaj had his turn to hit the woodwork, heading onto the bar from close-range, though the off-side flag was up anyway.
KEY MOMENT: Matters went from bad to worse before the first-half could come to a close for Lordswood as Wilson rifled a volleyed effort in off the bar from 18-yards – a spectacular finish. Yes, he’s a left-back.
T.Chapman forced a good stop from the keeper early into the second-half as Ramsgate picked up where they left off in the first-half.
M.Chapman fed T.Chapman down the right, who continued to get the better of the Lordswood full-back, but his low-driven cross was collected by the keeper.
T.Chapman, now on the left, probably to give the Lordswood left-back a break, breezed past the right-back to set up Arnold in a good position inside the box, but he shot over.
KEY MOMENT: Arnold made amends shortly after, slotting a shot under the keeper one-on-one, making it 4-0.
Arnold had a couple of great chances late on and in truth might’ve had a hat-trick had he taken his opportunities!
With all due respect to Lordswood, Ramsgate could’ve had double figures had they been more clinical, but a top display nonetheless.
