Ian Mace will continue to manage the U13s in the local league with Duncan Randall again in charge of the U13 Colts; while former Green player Damian Morse will be taking the new U13s side [formerly Great Chart] in the East Kent Youth League.

Sunday league round-up

Well done to Brews, Albion and The Dockers

Congratulations to Brewmaster who are the new Premier Division champions after winning 5-2 at last season’s top side Bethersden thanks to goals from Gary Clarke (2), Sam Conlon, Chris Gillam and Ben Squires-Quinn. Matt Goldsmith and Pete Sikora replied for Bethersden. The only other Premier Division match ended in a 2-1 victory for Market Hotel (Adam Purse and Matt Collins) away to Marsh Athletic.

In the Second Division, Kennington won 4-1 at Stanhope while Albion gained the point they needed to secure the top spot with a goalless draw against AFC Locomotive. Chris Wyles (3) and Joe Edwards notched for Kennington with Luke Burdon the Rangers marksman.

Charing Reserves made sure of runners-up spot in Division Three  by virtue of a 3-2 home victory against Givauden with their goals scored by Ross Prebble, Steve Tanner and Luca Fasoli. Givauden answered through Lee Cannon and Rory Feaver. Prince Albert meanwhile recorded a useful 5-1 win over Ashford Spartans with Adam Bellman (3), Gary Boorman and an own goal making up their nap hand.

Division Three champions Wye Reserves overcame Mersham’s second string 5-2 while Fox Sunday nicked it 4-3 against Ashford Cavaliers by virtue of goals by Jaime Steele, Darren Smith, Phil Redmond and Matt Capps. The visitors goals all came from leading scorer Matt Moon. Kingsnorth rounded off their campaign with a 2-1 home win over Stour Valley. Matt Jackson and Jimmy Jones netted for Kingsnorth while the Valley reply was an own goal.

Carlum McCloud, Steve Rice and Shane Booten were on target at Reachfields as Shadoxhurst beat Troggs 3-1 to lift the Val Helen Cup. Bradley Burton hit the Troggs consolation.
