SALISBURY’S dismal run of form at the Ray Mac was once again on show as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Kings Langley.

The Whites went into the game with only four home league wins all season, with only one of those coming since November and not much optimism amongst a home support that has dwindled in number since the start of the campaign, writes Andy Munns.

The away side arrived knowing they needed to win to ensure survival in Southern Premier South for next season and it was the team from Hertfordshire who took an early lead after a sluggish start.

Alfie Williams got on the end of a cushioned pass and curled past Patrick O’Flaherty into the corner of the net on 15 minutes.

Salisbury stirred from their end-of-season slumber and created a couple of opportunities, the most noteworthy came from Abdulai Baggie but his shot was well saved by Alfie Marriott in the Langley goal.

The home side started the second half in a more lively fashion and controlled the ball well but did not fashion any chances, unable to find a way to unlock the visitors.

Salisbury could have levelled the game when Baggie was bundled over just inside the box and referee Adrian Harris pointed to the spot.

He then doubled the pain for Kings Langley as Aryan Tajbaksh was shown a red card for his foul, leaving the away side with only 10 men for the final quarter of an hour.

Charlie Davis stepped up to take the penalty but he saw his strike turned away by an excellent save from Marriott.

Salisbury struggled for momentum after that and Langley substitute Erin Amu provided the final moment of disappointment for the Whites’ supporters as he finished the game with a cool finish.

The whites finished the season in a disappointing 15th place in the league table under boss Steve Claridge.
