Farnham Town Fight Back For First League Win

A Brace And Assist From Josh Ogunseye  Gives The Town Three Points


I’d love to be able to report in detail on Farnham’s first league win of the season.

Unfortunately, someone thought it would be a good idea to close the Hogs Back on a Saturday afternoon, so, rather than seeing a tremendous performance from the Town, I sat in traffic for over an hour, before giving up and going home.

Quite clearly, I missed a cracker!

With thanks to those that were there, here are the highlights.

Table topping Colliers Wood took the lead with a soft goal after 13 minutes, but that was the bad luck over and done with.

Two goals in five minutes around the half hour mark saw the Town turn the game around, and Josh Ogunseye was involved in both.

First, he coolly converted after a defensive mix up put him clear through.

Then his saved shot fell to the feet of Matt Glass who put Farnham ahead for the first time this season.

The Town’s task was made easier when Colliers Wood were reduced to 10 men on the hour mark and they sealed the game deep into added time, when, with the Colliers Wood ‘keeper up for a corner, the Town broke to set up Josh Ogunseye for a simple second goal.

Farnham Manager Colin Millard was understandably upbeat about the result:

“After what has now become our customary (and unwanted) shoddy start, where we conceded an extremely poor goal, I thought we thoroughly deserved our first league win of the season against, let’s not forget, a team flying with their early form.

 I’m pleased for the squad because the margins have been very fine against us in every game apart from Beckenham. I’m also pleased for everyone associated with the club particular the coaching team who are working hard to get us moving forward.

This win should be our catalyst as we move into the next round of fixtures.

This team frustrates and excites in equal measure but that’s to be expected.

It’s still a fledgling team. It’s process and the process takes time to get right. On to the next one”.

The fixture list has given Farnham a tough start to the season, but with three points banked, the league table looks a whole lot better.

Next up is a tough F.A. Vase tie against in form Warminster Town, but this was a result that will give the Town team a massive lift.

MOTM : Josh Ogunseye

The Town’s next home match is the F.A. Vase tie against Warminster Town on Saturday 11 September.  Kick off 3:00pm
