Bamboozling Bulls Equal Combined Counties Record

Goals from Jonny Le Quesne, Zeljko Martnovic and Sol Solomon gave Jersey Bulls victory against a battling Bedfont & Feltham.

The win means that Bulls equal Withdean’s Combined Counties record of 26 wins in what has been an impressive debut season.

Bulls started on the front foot on Saturday as Luke Campbell headed wide from a 2nd minute Jay Giles corner.

The deadlock was broken in the 14th minute after Karl Hinds’ shot was deflected and saved onto the bar by David Windmill, but there was Le Quesne to head home.

Kelvin Karanja was denied a leveller for the visitors by an excellent Euan Van Der Vliet save, with the Combined Counties Division One top scorer, Michael Capon, firing over on the rebound.

Bulls had chances through Solomon and Hinds to go further ahead before the break, but both put shots wide.

Gary Freeman’s men scored their second in the 54th minute through Martinovic. Daryl Wilson raced onto a through ball and set up the impressive winger who comfortably slotted home past Windmill.

Moments later Karanja nipped in before Campbell and Jack Griffin to race through with only Van Der Vliet to beat, but the Bulls shot stopper stood firm and denied the attacker fantastically again.

The game was put to bed just after the hour mark as Campbell squared the ball to Solomon who tucked the ball past Windmill for his eighth goal in five games.

Subsitute Harry Cardwell impressed and was denied by Windmill not once but twice in quick succession, before a fantastic save by the visiting keeper denied Wilson after good build up play by man of the match Adam Trotter and Kamen Nafkha.

Cardwell had one last run, going past the defender like he wasn’t there, but Windmill, who shone for Bedfont, pulled off a fine one handed save.

The Bulls remain cemented at the top of the Combined Counties Division One table, 24 points clear of second placed Farnham Town, with a +90 goal difference.

The islanders can break the Combined Counties Division One record next Saturday when they visit Fleet Spurs, who proved to be tricky in a heated cup tie just over a month ago.
