Kent League Cup
KINGFISHER 2 v TORNADOES 2. Another great match, once again the scoreline doesn’t do justice to a fine game from a neutral perspective. The match started even the the score at 3-2, then Kingfisher scored 8 without reply to open a wide gap that Tornadoes couldn’t close, but nonetheless a very good match. Final score 17-5 to Kingfisher 2.
Under 16 Cup
BEARSTED v BEC – Referee: Chris Beale Linesman: Sam Barnden. Bec’s faithful and large support certainly added atmosphere to a wonderful contest between two very evenly matched teams, with both sides trading goal for goal in a nail-biting match for the large crowd. Bearsted finally edged the contest 7-5 with Rebecca Stone top scoring with 3.
