Needham 1-2 Kingstonian
Theophanous at the double as K’s win again
A Louis Theophanous double ensured all three points for Kingstonian at Bloomfields this afternoon.
The recent signing from fellow Ryman Premier league side Billericay Town broke the deadlock with just two minutes played as the hosts failed to put in a challenge.
Clear cut chances were to prove few and far between for Needham. Their best chance falling to Adam Mills who’s dipping volley was comfortably saved on 25 minutes.
Half Time: Needham Market 0-1 Kingstonian
Theophanous’ tenacity continued after the break and on 47 minutes he scored his and The K’s second goal.
Under pressure boss Richard Wilkins made his first change as Jack Simmons replaced Adam Mills. His dangerous cross eluded all in the penalty area as Needham searched for a way back into the game.
In stoppage time, Needham forward John Sands scored a consolation goal. A typical strikers finish turning his man and finding the bottom corner.
Sadly for the Reds it was too little too late and Needham’s relegation woes continue.
