“New Salamis go two wins on the trot after beating Hullbridge 2-1,
New Salamis will be tricky opponents finding the Isthmian North a comfortable fit in their first season at this level. other clubs will have to be alert to the “super subs” from Salamis who have consistently won matches in the final third of matches”.
Hullbridge somehow ended up with no points from a fixture that should have provided three. The Salamis late show from 87 minutes onwards that turned this game around was hard to explain and, indeed,It may not have been a vintage performance but from the off The Bridge were the better of the two sides and looked the most likely to go ahead, although as the game approached half-time with the sides deadlocked at 0-0. Just when it looked like remaining goalless The Bridge finally broke the deadlock after 43 minutes as a corner was flicked on for Martin Tuohy to convert at the back post and give The Bridge a deserved half-time lead. New Salamis have adapted well to the higher level they now compete at but, despite their two danger men Asamoah and Remi looking quite lively there was not too much for The Bridge to be concerned about.
A goal changes games, one of those football cliches that is absolutely true, and Salamis changed this one with an 87th-minute equaliser from the aforementioned danger man Louie Remi, who had scored twice against The Bridge in the reverse fixture earlier in the season when Salamis staged a comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2. Not happy with that, they then did the same again for a goal directly from a Harrison Georgiou corner to put the visitors New Salamis 2-1 up in the last minute of normal time.
