Tonbridge boss Steve McKimm didn’t have to go outside the club to find a goalscoring striker.
McKimm promoted Royce Greenidge from the reserves for Tuesday’s Ryman League Premier Division clash at Harrow and it proved to be a masterstroke.
Greenidge scored the only goal of the game, firing home a cross from fellow striker Marvin Williams in the 13th minute. It was the first time Tonbridge had scored in four league matches.
McKimm said: “Royce is young, eager and hungry – that showed in his performance. He deserved his goal for the effort he put in.”
Williams, who has agreed to extend his short-term deal to stay at Longmead until the end of the season, also played a big part in the win and McKimm praised the former Millwall forward, who scored seven times in 51 games for the Lions.
“His experience really helped Royce and they played well together,” said McKimm. “We’ll have to see how the partnership continues to flourish but it was an encouraging start.”
Tuesday’s win came at a cost with midfielder Jack Brivio picking up an injury.
Tonbridge, who lost 2-0 at home to Met Police last weekend, travel to lowly AFC Hornchurch on Saturday.
McKimm added: “I know their position doesn’t suggest it, but they are a decent side.
“We’ll have to be on our game to beat them, otherwise we will come unstuck.”
