Betsy’s Goodbye – Word on the Tweet

By Jacob Greenwood

Woking legend Kevin Betsy played his final game for The Cards on Saturday in an exhilarating 3-2 victory over Halifax Town. Stoppage time goals from Scott Rendell and Yemi Odubade saw the home side take all three points, but the focus was on the departing midfielder.

Betsy, who started his career at Kingfield, received a guard of honour from both sets of players and was clapped from all four sides of the ground at full-time as he took his final bow. Here is how Twitter reacted to ‘King Kev’s’ departure and Woking’s incredible comeback:
