by Alex Smithyes

It was late heartbreak for City as they lost against Camberley. Kai Beck netted for City but it wasn’t enough and a late Cmberley strike gave them a  2-1 win.

Guildford started poorly, creating little chances in the opening ten minutes. The deadlock was broken after 12 minutes as Sam Whitehead found the net for the home side which is what they deserved.

With Guildford finding it hard to get going in the first half, Camberley hasd most of the chances.

Manager Tristan Rees said:  “We weren’t good enough in that first half and we know that”.

After the break, The Sweeney came out the blocks like a different side. City took Will May off replacing him with Manny Acheampong. The substitution changed the game.

Rees had this to say about his performance: “Manny came on and proved why it’s now his shirt to keep.”

Kai Beck scored the equaliser for City..

The equaliser was scored after 53 minutes. Kai Beck found the back of the net after Stuart Norman spilled a shot alert and Beck was and poked the ball home.

Just after the goal Acheampong forced Norman to make another good save.

Guildford managed to keep the ball and created many chances until late on. But Camberley grew into the second half and with ten minutes to go forced Mac Chisholm into some good saves.

Camberley were now looking threatening grab the winner and so they did with virtually the last kick of the game.

Leo Spicer was the man who found the net who appeared to head the ball past Chisholm from close range.

For Guildford that is now five defeats on the bounce and willneed to turn things around in the next midweek match.
