Sunday morning round-up

Brewmaster recorded what could prove to be a valuable 2-1 win away to Aldington in the Ashford & District League Premier Division with goals by Matt and Gary Clarke. Ryan Strand replied for Chris Howells boys.

Goals by Ryan Smith (3), Steve Harris (2) and Craig Calvert saw Market comfortably through in the Kent Sunday Cup away to Langley while Locomotive rammed in 14 without reply against Batchelors SSC. For the record, the goals were provided by Liam Whiting (4), Lloyd Dehara (3), Luke Walder (2), Danny Taylor (2) and James Barham, Matt Hadlum and Dan White.

Burton Grove staged a spirited fightback from 3-0 down against Bromley Green at Waterside but overall the home boys were worthy 3-2 victors in a sporting Division Two clash. Grove’s most influential player, Dean Metcalfe, and Andy Neal gave hope after Ryan Ford and Tom Moon (2) had put the home side in the driving seat. Another terrific display by Kurtis Hooper and Kieran Shrimpton in midfield for a Green squad that goes into the Christmas break all smiles.

Shepway Spartans picked up maximum spoils from their home fixture with neighbours Sandgate. On target in a 2-0 success were Josh Gibson and Aaron Williams.

Division Three pacesetters Ashford Cavaliers were given a scare by Lolzors who held a single goal advantage at the break via a Justin Howard spot kick. However, Luke Hughes and Michael Cook turned things around in the second half. Stour Valley just missed out, falling to an own goal at home to Mersham Reserves.

Second half Gower goals cannot stave off Reserves defeat

Before today's local league game with Smarden

Green Reserves before today’s local league game with Smarden

With the firsts losing 7-1 in Sittingbourne to basement side Park Regis and the seconds succumbing 6-2 at home to old friends Smarden, it is difficult to extract any real positives from today. However, Cameron and Amir, the two youngest players on the park for the seconds, give reason for future hope and two late Connor Gower goals were at least well-contrived and executed. The less said the better at the moment as surely things can only improve in the New Year! Sam Sowdon netted our consolation for the firsts who now go into the Christmas break propping up the rest.

Warming up but we never really got going until it was too late
