Hat trick for birthday boy Jetil as U15s come from behind to win

Two games and two victories in the East Kent Youth League

A birthday treble for Player of the Match Jetil

A birthday treble for Player of the Match Jetil

Following Saturday’s disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Sturry, the Under 15s bounced back the next day with a thrilling 4-3 win over Tankerton. A stunning strike by Layton on the stroke of half time brought us level at 3-3 and hat-trick hero Jetil celebrated his birthday with the winner.

Tommy is our Player of the Match but a mad few minutes just before the break led to a 2-0 home setback

Under 16s comfortable win
With one eye on Wednesday’s cup final, the Under 16s came through unscathed and recorded a 6-2 success against a Trinity side that battled to the end. Josh and Levii were the pick of the Green whose goals came from Tom, Reece (2), a fine left footer by Cameron, Levii and Amir.

Leah-Anne presented the tiny ones with medallions for turning up and showing such a great attitude in cold and windy conditions.
