The perfect bank holiday!

8:31pm Tuesday 1st September 2009

As a fan the good times keep rolling at Kendal Town FC, the traditional bank holiday fixtures are always huge tests, but for Kendal to pick 6 points from the 2 games is more than what even the most die hard of Kendal fans would have hoped for.

Both matches were quite different; Saturdays 4-1 home win over Marine was relatively straight forward, Kendal, were just a class above on the day. Whilst the Whitby away match on Bank Holiday was a massive battle, so to win 3-2 in the 95th minute shows how far the team are progressing.

The man of the moment is Kieran Walmsley, he can’t stop scoring, he had 5 going into the weekend already and has already added on to that tally reaching 8 so far!

All the goals he has scored have been stunning strikes, that goal at Ashton a few weeks ago was a screamer, on Saturday he scored 2 sensational free kicks and on Bank Holiday Monday he scored another screamer volleying the ball home at the death.

This unbeaten start has put Kendal couple of points clear at the top, and even though it’s still relatively early days, Town are looking hard to beat, on Saturday they face another challenge when they host FC United. There is set to be 1,500+ their on the day, that match last season helped Kendal through financially till the end of the season, FC’s fan base is huge and they are always a good set of supporters!

Their will be one heck of an atmosphere on Saturday, Kendal will be looking to keep their good start going, whilst FC who after a slow start to the season are gradually coming back into form again!
