Kendal Town defeated Glossop North End 1-0 in their final home game of the season at The ST&B Accountants Stadium.

Brad Carroll’s goal 16 minutes into the first half proved to be the difference in an otherwise uneventful contest.

The game started at a relatively slow tempo, although Kendal did manage to create half chances. The best of which came through Sam Staunton-Turner and, Carroll, who both forced Glossop keeper Russell Saunders into action.

Kendal opened the scoring when a dinked ball by Gareth Arnison fell into the path of Carroll whose shot on the angle fell into the bottom left hand corner of the net.

Matthew Johnson rescued Kendal on two separate occasions during the first half by pulling off a spectacular save to deny Jack Higgs before forcing Jack Bishop’s effort away at the near post.

Kendal then thought they had doubled their lead but Ric Seear's goal was ruled out for offside.

The second half proved to be largely uneventful, but Glossop created two opportunities through substitute Courtney Meppen-Walter who fired a free kick over the bar before seeing his header cleared away by the Kendal defence.

Kendal’s best opportunity fell to Carroll who blazed over from close range following some neat link up play.

The game tailed off and Kendal saw out the four minutes stoppage time to finish their home campaign on a winning note.

Kendal travel to South Shields tonight, (Thursday), before closing their season with an away game at Trafford.
