Tes Robinson – won the game with a thumping header

Khalsa enjoyed their first opening day win for four years thanks to a 25th minute header from captain Tes Robinson.

Robinson’s goal from Lewis Worsey‘s free kick settled a tight contest in which, it’s fair to say, the defences had the upper hand.

Neither goalkeeper had too much to do, although Sam Arnold had to save well from ex-Khalsa striker Rikardo Reid in the first half and the same player later hit the crossbar with a nifty effort from the angle.

At the other end Mykel Beckley had Khalsa’s best opportunity when put clear through by Gaz Singh but was unable to put his effort on target.
