Dean Grant strikes with a hat-trick.........
Peacehaven & Telscombe 1 Hythe Town 3
Saturday 22nd July 2017
The Cannons eventually cruised to a 3-1 win at a damp Peacehaven & Telscombe on Saturday afternoon.
The game started with the hosts on the attack after one minute when they broke through but the ball was deflected wide for a corner. After a twenty minute period of deadlock and limited efforts, it was Hythe who had the next opportunity as Ben Wilson put a ball through to new signing Jordan Johnson-Palmer who put his shot over the bar. Hythe continued to attack as Ryan Palmer sent a looping cross towards the far post but the ball was cleared away. On 32 minutes Peacehaven had a golden opportunity as their striker broke free and forced a save from Hythe keeper, Will Godman.
Wilson was next to threaten as a free kick from the right was deflected wide for a corner. A minute before the interval Johnson-Palmer fed the ball through to Palmer who miss hit his shot wide of the target.
Hythe were in for a shock within three minutes of the restart as the hosts took the lead. The defence allowed the ball to get through to Marcus Richmond who fired past substitute keeper Joe Mant. This seemed to spark the visitors into action and they were level on 57 minutes as a dangerous Keiron Campbell cross found Dean Grant on the near post and the striker nonchalantly flicked the ball home. It was now Hythe who were dominating the game with a Wilson free-kick finding Jay May on the far-post but his attempt went just wide of the target.
Hythe went ahead on 76 minutes as Grant got his second as he lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper and then followed up forcing the ball home. Charlie Webster was unlucky as he ran in but his final effort was pushed wide by the goalkeeper. The Cannons sewed the game up with five minutes to go as Campbell ran into the penalty area, passing to Grant who finished to make the score 3-1 and get his hat-trick.
It was a good result for Hythe as they look forward to another pre-season friendly on Tuesday evening against Crowborough Athletic at Reachfields with a 7:45pm kick off.
