Bad day for Kemp's Priory
7:00am Monday 25th February 2013 in Non league football
BOSS Graham Kemp admitted it had been a “bad day all round” as 10-man Christchurch lost ground on the Wessex Premier leaders.
Priory slumped to a 2-1 home defeat to AFC Portchester, while defender Ross Lloyd saw red after half-an-hour.
Craig Hardy opened the scoring for the visitors on the stroke of half-time.
Kemp’s charges equalised through Sam Griffin but, despite dominating the second half, Christchurch fell to substitute Jay Ripiner’s goal five minutes from time.
The result left the Hurn Bridge outfit five points behind leaders Alresford.
Kemp said: “It was one of those days where it was never going to fall for us but I can’t fault the lads’ effort and commitment.”
