Craig Bannister – absolute worldie (as the kids say) for the second

It was perhaps best described as a day for the forwards, as Khalsa climbed to third in the table with a fine win over Highgate United.

United – who will almost certainly be the only side to do the double over Hereford this season – received five of the best, with Craig Bannister‘s second (his 38th of the season) one which everyone who was watching will be talking about for some time.

With a superb performance by Carlo Franco at full-back helping to keep Gate dangerman Lei Brown under wraps, Khalsa took full advantage in the second half after some shaky defending at both ends in the first half saw the scoreline stand at 2-2 at the break.

Goals by Simeon Townsend, Marvin Nisbett and Dave Meese added to Bannister’s double to help Khalsa to one of their season highlights.
