Kennington 1 Ide Hill 2
Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield - Second Round
Ide Hill’s defeat of Kennington FC was their fourth win in cup competitions in as many weeks and the second time they have defeated their opponents this season.
Kennington play open and flowing football and in the early exchanges they caused problems as they harried Ide Hill who took time to ease into the match. Kennington had more of the possession but chances fell to both sides, Ide Hill getting caught offside as they pushed forward too keenly at times.
As the game settled Ide Hill’s attack minded midfielder George Kensell made good runs and won his aerial battles. Striker Tom Wright chased down every chance and captain Craig Holderled the team well. They were awarded several set pieces and largely they were wasted as shots were over hit but the best chance of the half fell to right-back Ben Pearson.
Fleetdown United 1 Ide Hill 7
Sevenoaks Senior Charity Cup - First Round
Ide Hill’s defence of the trophy they won last season started with a resounding 7-1 defeat of the team they beat in the final. Despite the delayed start, due to a lack of pegs to stabilise the goal nets, Ide Hill’s football flowed from the start and Fleetwood struggled to get into the game.
This was Ide Hill’s third cup-tie in as many weeks and in the past two it took a battling spirit to win through in extra-time. This time Ide Hill not only led with their fluent, free-flowing football they took the lead in the seventeenth minute and defended it well.
Ide Hill 4 Kennington 3 (aet)
Inter Regional Challenge Cup - First Round
Ide Hill conceded two goals inside three minutes yet fought back resolutely to win 4-3 after extra time in an exhilarating cup tie.
Kennington’s scored in just six seconds as Ide Hill lost possession from the start and after two touches Ide Hill defender Charlie James gifted the ball to Kennington’s striker who finished with a debt lob from 20 yards out.
Leaving Ide Hill no time to regroup, Kennington surged forward and scored in the third minute taking advantage of clumsy defending. Kennington took the ball to the byline and drilled it back to tap in softly under the keeper.
In a state of daze Ide Hill struggled to cope with Kennington’s pace and flowing football on the break and they should have added to their score in the next five minutes but Ide Hill dug deep when needed and after ten minutes they started to regain their shape and pose.
New Romney 3 Ide Hill 4 (aet)
Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield - First Round
Ide Hill emerged 4-3 victors in a pulsating cup tie that went to extra time and drew the best from both teams. In a highly combative game Ide Hill scored first after early pressure. In a tight spot on the right wing full back Ben Pearson crossed for Tom Wright to control it neatly in the penalty area and beat the keeper.
Ide Hill’s continuation with a 4-4-2 formation is a good attacking option and up-front veteran Baz Pennells had his toughest run-out of the season showing the deft touches and the experience he has. Linking well with Wright they caused the New Romney back-four problems, ably supported by runs from Shaun Boyle and George Kensell.
Ide Hill FC were formed in 1923 and became an affiliated member of the FA in 1924, and this year we are celebrating the club's 90th anniversary. The football club's home pitch is located behind The Cock Inn pub in the picturesque village of Ide Hill and is reported to be the highest football pitch in Kent. Read more
