Tunbridge Wells turned in another impressive performance building on the feel-good factor that surrounds Culverden at the present time.

I didn’t have much feel-good factor, arriving at the ground five or so minutes after kick-off due to traffic problems and road closures (when does this not happen in Tunbridge Wells? By my arrival, the Wells were already a goal to the good, after two minutes, scored by Josh Froggatt.

No sooner I had settled into place, Danny Powell converted at the near post to put the Wells firmly in control.

After 14 minutes, Jason Thompson hit a post as the Wells movement was cutting through K Sports threadbare defence At will.

That Tunbridge Wells went through the first half without adding to the score line is something of a mystery. K’s goalkeeper, Jack Howard, made a decent save to deny Froggatt but the mystery is largely explained as wastefulness.

K Sports did have a brief period just prior to the break including an effort that bounced off the top of the bar.

The early period of the second half saw Regan Corke narrowly miss for the visitors and Thompson put a header wide.

The introduction of Luke Blewden brought an immediate dividend as he turned in a right wing cross at the near post.

The goal broke K Sports paper-thin resistance and as the heads dropped the Wells ran riot in the final 15 minute.

A long ball forward found George Blake with the freedom of Culverden and he duly converted to make it 4-0.

A cracking effort from 25 yards from Froggatt into the top corner gave Howard no chance a minute later.

Blewden set up Blake to make it six and the evening’s entertainment was ended with a run and finish from Fjord Rogers.

Complimentary remarks heard as leaving Culverden used words such as entertainment, something that had been in short supply over the past couple of seasons.
