Man of the Match:


Fulham DFC stormed to a rampant victory, demolishing Oxted & District 5-0 in a clinical display to earn their first 3 points of the league campaign.

From the first minute to the half time whistle Fulham had the large majority of possession and dictated the play to great effect putting themselves 2-0 up by the end of the half.

It wasn’t just Fulham’s attacking prowess on display, Thompson and Burns both making notable defensive plays at the centre of defence throughout the game. It was Kamps however who intercepted the ball at left back, dribbling from his own penalty area shrugging off challenges from two Oxted players before playing a delightful through ball to Willis from the half way line. Willis unselfishly squared the ball to Lee Farrell who finished effectively to give Fulham a much deserved lead.

Hogan was instrumental in the second goal, picking out Willis with a lofted through ball. Willis beat a defender and struck the ball to find the back of the net for his first of the afternoon.

Fulham headed into the half-time break pleased with their ball retention and clinical finishing.

Determined not to succumb to a lack of discipline in the 2nd half like the previous 2 games, Fulham started the 2nd half with aplomb.

Willis, still hungry to make ammends for a poor performance in front of goal just a week ago, claimed his second when his initial shot ricocheted off the defender, setting him up for an accurate left foot shot which found the bottom corner of the net.

The fourth goal for Fulham came after a lofted pass into the left-hand side channel from Kamps found Hogan who crossed for Willis to complete his hattrick after a fumble from the keeper.

Willis’ fourth came while finishing after a square ball following a Fulham counter attack in the dying stages.

Fulham may be disappointed they did not score more with close misses from Gregory and Kamps amongst others.

Fulham however will be looking to use the momentum from this for future matches. They can also take away a positive in that this was also their first clean sheet of the season, much to the delight of goalkeeper Boyle who had an incredibly quiet game between the sticks.
