Tonbridge Angels reach the last four of the Kent Senior Cup
By Craig Tucker
Tonbridge reached the Kent Senior Cup semi-finals on the night
striker Mikel Suarez scored the first goal of his comeback.
Angels beat 10-man Bromley 5-1 after extra-time at Longmead on
Tuesday with doubles for David Ijaha and Mark Lovell and a Frannie
Meanwhile, Suarez headed loan club Hastings in front against
East Thurrock in a match that ended 1-1.
Angels boss Tommy Warrilow (pictured) has sent Suarez to
Hastings to get games as he steps up his comeback from a
career-threatening head injury. Warrilow said: "He had to score a
header, didn’t he?
"If he’s flying we’ll get him back but I’d like him to play at
least six games down there. Mikel can’t drive at the moment so we
handpicked Hastings because our old player Ben Judge has gone there
and he can jump in the car with him."
Warrilow praised in-form striker Lovell after Angels’ win over
Bromley. Lovell started the season down the pecking order but has
forced his way into the side.
Warrilow said: "Good things happen to good people and Mark is
reaping the benefits of staying patient. He’s a pleasure to have
around the place and is showing what a decent player he is."
Angels are at home again on Saturday with Chelmsford the
visitors. Defender Dan Walder (dead leg/hamstring) is doubtful,
while Nathan Koranteng is set to rejoin Kingstonian on loan.
