We visited Camberley Town FC, who defeated us at home 42 days ago with a score of 5-0, marking a chastening defeat for our club. We were anticipating another tough game, however, we dug deep and managed to secure a 2-1 victory through a gritty and resilient performance from our team – performances like these will be crucial as the season draws to a close.

We welcomed Fabian Witter into the goalkeeper position, replacing Toby Colwill who was unwell. Fabian played exceptionally well, and his goalkeeping skills belied his young age; it was a very promising debut performance. Thompson Adjemi returned to midfield after missing out against Farnham Town midweek due to injury. With Carl Obiltey sidelined, TJ was deployed up front to lead the line.

In the opening exchanges, we proved more than a match for our opponents on a pitch that wasn’t conducive to free-flowing football. It came as a bit of a surprise when we went 1-0 down after failing to defend a long throw-in. However, we responded positively and drew level on the stroke of halftime through Ethan Nelson-Roberts, who capitalized on a deep free kick into the Camberley defense that wasn’t cleared, allowing him to bundle the ball into the net. Halftime score: 1-1.

As the second half commenced, we were clearly in the ascendancy. Ethan Nelson-Roberts once again found the back of the net after a brilliant run from Sirak Negassi on the left wing, who crossed to TJ, who then laid it off to Ethan for our second goal – it was a just reward for our efforts. With over 30 minutes left to play, we expected a Camberley onslaught, but it never materialized, and to be honest, they didn’t create many chances. We saw out the 9 minutes of injury time to secure our first points in the league since just after Christmas.

This was an outstanding result, especially considering the outcomes of the other matches involving teams in the relegation zone. There is still plenty of work to be done, but there’s no denying that the team is playing very well, and the future looks optimistic.

We return home to the Reg Madgwick Stadium next, where we’ll host Alton FC, who are currently pushing for a playoff spot. If we play like we did against Camberley, it promises to be an exciting game. Why not come down and watch us?
