Godalming Town FC

Walton & Hersham 1-2 Godalming Town



Godalming grabbed a thoroughly deserved three points at Stompond Lane on Saturday, after going a goal down in the second half.


The Gs welcomed back striker Dan Read, and immediately Read was a menace to the Swans defence, causing problems with his chasing and harrying. Godalming were the better side in a half which contained few real chances, although the Gs did lose Wes Harrison midway through the half through injury.


Walton started the second half strongly, and grabbed a goal after Jamie Norris palmed out a looping cross, but the rebound was volleyed home. Godalming had a good shout for a penalty when a Walton defender apparently handled in the box, but the referee decided otherwise.  Godalming came close afterwards, fist through Darren Wheeler and then through George Short, but neither could find the back of the net. The Gs were rewarded for their hard work when substitute Jon Palmer flicked the ball past Williams in the 83rd minute for the equaliser. Things got even better when deep into the fourth minute of injury time a long Guy Hollis throw was cleared, only to reach Antonio Simeone who volleyed the ball back into the goalmouth, allowing Jon Palmer to finish for his second of the game and the winner.
