Match Report - Bashley FC
Kettering Town recorded a 5-0 victory over Bashley FC in their first pre-season friendly at Latimer Park. New manager, Marcus Law, witnessed a five star show on the three month anniversary since The Poppies lifted the Southern League Division One Central title.
Gillitt was forced into action three times in the visiting goal during the opening minutes, although Bashley rallied, but four goals in fourteen first-half minutes ended any resistance. Silvano Obeng ran on to Will Grocott's sumptuous through ball to open the scoring on the twenty fourth minute.
Grocott doubled the lead four minutes later with a neat turn and finish, and Brett Solkhon put the result beyond doubt at the end of another slick move, heading home at the near post. New signing Saul Williams added a fourth before the break.
Lance Allen fired a fantastic goal eight minutes before the end to send the vast majority of the Latimer Park crowd home very happy.
