Marks gave Camden a new dimension, says Castle


Will Castle praised stand-in striker Josh Marks who inspired Camden Park to a 3-1 success over Faithfold B in the third round of the Cyril Anekstein Cup.

In the end Premier Division class told as Camden safely negotiated their trip to first division Faithfold at the Hive.

Castle believes Camden "made the Faithfold B game much harder than it should have been". He told JC Sport: "From the first minute they got in our faces and had a couple of early chances they really should have scored but then we woke up and settled into the game dominating the first half."

A well-worked move was neatly finished off by Marks who "looks like he could be a revelation up front". Castle added: "I'm looking forward to seeing more of him in that position and with a bit of luck he will be able go some way to filling the huge void left by Rob Hershkorn's injury.

Marks was instrumental again when he was brought down in the box giving Jordan Silverstone the chance to double Camden's advantage from the spot - but he put his effort over the bar.

Michael Khalastchi did manage to make it 2-0 with a thunderbolt free-kick from 30 yards out which went in off the post. Castle described it as "an outstanding goal that should not just be considered for GOTW but goal of the season".

To their credit Faithfold fought back and came out recharged in the second half. They pulled one back with around 20 minutes to go making it a very nervy ending for Camden.

But DJ Kanzen sealed the win with a brilliant chip from the edge of the box making it 3-1.

Camden boss Will Castle told JC Sport: "Thankfully we did enough for the win but not the best Camden performance I have ever seen."
