Kendal Town picked up their first win since August after an emphatic 4-1 win at Glossop North End. First half goals by Kyle Sambor,Scott Harries and Steven Yawson saw Kendal go 3-0 up at half time, before Bobby Thomas’s goal five minutes into the second half gave Kendal an unassailable 4-0 lead. Glossop scored from the penalty spot with ten minutes to go however Kendal eased to a crucial victory.

Kendal gave debuts to five new players, with KylSambor, Max Brown,Kieron Olson, Kian Yari and Bobby Thomas all included in the starting line upSambor who was signed from Colne started up front while Max Brown and Kieron Olson were also included after joining on a one month loan from Carlisle United. Kendal completed their much changed line up after bringing in both Bobby Thomas and Kian Yari who are on work experience loan from Burnley Football ClubUnder 18 Academy Team.

The Mintcakes started the game with intent and were 1-0 up after 16 minutes when Kyle Sambor scored from close range. Sambor capitalised after scoring from Billy Akriggs deep free kick!

Kendal pressed Glossop’s midfield and dominated possession while Steven Yawson fired over after good work by Scott Harries.

However Kendal were 2-0 up soon after when Scott Harries fired the ball into the bottom right hand corner of the net following a clinical pass by Sambor.

Kendal completed a dominant first half when Yawsons 25 yard effort nestled into the bottom corner as the Mintcakes were 3-0 up at half time.

With such a commanding lead, Kendal pressed on in the second half before Bobby Thomas headed home from Akriggs wide free kick with Kendal 4-0 up.

From that point Kendal dominated possession and played with confidence, as the victory was secured, before Harries, Matt Clarke,Yawson and Brad Carroll all created opportunities.

Glossop did score a late consolation with ten minutes to go after Jack Tuohy scored from the penalty spot, however Kendal saw out the closing stages with ease as Kendal moved three points clear of the relegation zone.

After the game Kendal Town Manager David Foster was delighted with the team’s performance:

I am absolutely delighted with the win it has been a long time coming. I made a few changes to the starting line up, Kyle Sambor did well and scored a good goal. Bobby Thomas was strong, aggressive and a threat in their penalty area. While Max Brown worked hard on the right wing. Our front four was dangerous on the counter and caused lots of problem to a big and mobile Glossop Team

I look at the next five games and I don’t see why we can’t get between 12-15 points, there are four winnable games for us. If we can win this Saturday against Chasetown we have nothing to lose for when we travel to play a very strong Leek Town team.

It is about confidence we have been plugging away and have had to take our medicine. There have been some aspects where we haven’t been good enough but we are starting to eradicate some of those mistakes. Things are starting to look up however the Team need to go on a run we have opportunities and need to make the most of those.

Kendal entertain Chasetown on Saturday!
