A heavy home defeat by Headcorn hurt on Saturday as we find ourselves knocked off the top perch for the first time this season. A Jordan Osborne goal was all we had to show as we were made to pay for missed chances and shabby defending. The squad needs to pick itself up quickly and work hard to get a result away to High Halden next time out. Training is indoors on Thursday at Norton Knatchbull 7-8pm.
