Canvey Island 2-2 Greenwich Borough

Cox Brace Earns Gulls A Draw

Canvey Island and Greenwich Borough played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in a friendly at The Frost Hire Stadium on Saturday.

The match started in a very open manner, with Harry Palmer saving from Ryan King-Elliott inside three minutes after he had cut into the box from the left.

Up the other end our trialist forward had two chances in quick succession. On five minutes he had a shot from 25 yards saved into the chest of goalkeeper Jordan Carey, and soon afterwards a well-timed sliding tackle from defender Simbu Kubyiwa denied him a one-on-one chance after a long ball had played him through on goal.

The action was paused on 22 minutes in unfortunate circumstances as a heavy challenge saw our trialist left back stretchered off with a suspected fractured left ankle.

Once the action resumed, Harry Palmer pulled off another good stop when Teshaune-Tyreece Walters played the ball through the Canvey defence for Ryan King-Elliott on the left. The winger shot from a similar place to his earlier effort, and once again Palmer came off his line and made himself big to keep the ball out with his chest.

The danger wasn’t over however, and the ball was played across the area to the right where Laurent Mendy was on hand to score with the help of a deflection.

It was 2-0 six minutes later when George Allen was caught napping inside the area and was robbed of possession by Mendy, leaving him with the simple task of tucking away his second goal from close range.

Both teams had late chances in the first half, with Harry Palmer turning a shot wide from Connor Peters before Frankie Merrifield headed inches over from a corner.

There were several changes made at half time by both managers, with Canvey dominating much of the second half.

Jordan Cox had an early shot go wide after initially being tackled inside the box, but did get himself on the scoresheet on 57 minutes from the penalty spot. Ryan Melaugh was bundled over in the area and Cox sent the keeper the wrong way from 12 yards to reduce the arrears.

Xavier Vidal did shoot wide of the bottom corner for the visitors in a rare attack on 65 minutes from 20 yards, with Ryan Melaugh having an identical effort soon afterwards for the Gulls.

Canvey pushed hard for an equaliser in the final 15 minutes, virtually camping inside the Greenwich half and creating a number of chances.

Our trialist forward was denied twice in the 76th and 77th minute, first having a shot saved after a neat one-two with George Unwin before being tackled by Cameron Reardon as the last man.

Twins Jack and George Unwin both came close to drawing Canvey level having come on as substitutes, with George firing narrowly wide of the top corner before Jack slid in and shot wide from a Jordan Cox flick on header.

Canvey levelled the match in the second minute of injury time when Jordan Cox judged a long ball to the edge of the area well, opting not to compete with Cameron Reardon in the air and instead collect it after the defender had missed his header. After initially bringing the ball down with a stooping header, Cox flicked the ball over the on-rushing keeper to secure a draw that had seemed unlikely at half time.
