After creating and squandering so many first half chances Wilderpark faced defeat against Hildenborough Athletic Reserves.
Trailing 2-0 into the second half Manager Dan Thomas made two substitutions which effectively brought about a remarkable change in the score line. Neil Cutts reduced the 2-0 deficit which was followed by an Andrew Streeter strike soon afterwards. Cutts tucked away his second goal as Hildenborough visibly tired under relentless pressure.
The Park’s fight back came during the last 15 minutes or so to finally complete their season on a high note and a 3-2 victory.
During the first half both teams played neat attractive football but the Park were always a threat on the break. Hildenborough were square at the back and thus vulnerable to quick breaks and in particular the thrusts of Joe McLoughlin and Alex David down the right flank.
Twice during the match keeper Christian Esposito made excellent saves, one in the second half in which he tipped a fierce shot over the crossbar.
A highly successful season thus ended and the squad of fourteen players can be very satisfied with the outcome. Runners-up in Division One and thus gaining promotion to the Premier Division, winners of the Smiths League Premier Cup and semi-finalists in the Sevenoaks Charity Junior Cup.
On behalf of the players thanks are extended to Manager Dan Thomas, whose company DPT Contactors sponsor the Club, for his interest and dedication throughout the season.
