Stolerman ensures many happy returns for Kennet

By Danny Caro, November 19, 2012


Two more goals from the in-form Adam Stolerman helped Redbridge boost their title credentials as Eilon Kennet made a happy return to Rowley Lane.

Lions old boy Ben Graham sealed an impressive away win for the east Londoners.

Ollie Craig grabbed a consolation for the Lions.


RJC boss Eilon Kennet told JC Sport: "I'm very pleased with it overall. We had a game-plan which the boys carried out very well and we could have gone in at half time more that just one goal up.

"Ironically, Lions' best period was after we got our second goal right at the start of the second half, but as we all know the best form of defence is to attack and once we were 3-1 up, the match was more or less over.

"I always enjoy my return visits to Lions - lots of friendly faces and always a good game of football.

The 'new' Lions will only get better and better, but for now we are a little more experienced and 'professional'.

"Results have been good recently, but it's too early to speculate about the title, as there are quite a few contenders with similar results.

"The more we win the more it becomes a habit, but we aren't a big squad and any injuries will be a setback. For now we look forward to next Sunday."

Lions interim manager Andy Landesberg told JC Sport: "It was back to the real world for Lions. Whilst we had a good percentage of the play today, it was three critical mistakes that cost us today.

"I was pleased in general with our play and feel very sure that over the next few weeks we will begin to see the team take shape and start to gel.

"Redbridge are a strong, experienced, quality side and on balance probably deserved the three points. I hope we have learnt from our mistakes today and work harder and better to get a result against Norstar next week."
