Bromley Green, Hythe RBL and South Willesborough all through in Kent Sunday Cups

Kent Sunday Premier Cup- Round Three


There was a mixed bag of results in the Kent Sunday Premier Cup as two local sides crashed out of the competition in the final regional qualifying round, but there were celebrations in Southborough as Bromley Green progressed to the full county draw with a fantastic 4-1 away win over Armada FC.
Goals from Kieran Shrimpton, Pat Kingwell, Matt Burdon and top scorer Luke Burdon helped the Green to a comfortable victory over their West Kent Sunday League opponents and they now go into the hat for the draw for the last-16 of the competition. Gary Gibbs’ side could face infamous YouTube sensations and current holders SE Dons in the next round after the Sidcup-based side beat local rivals FC Bickley 1-0 to join them in the next round.

Stanhope & Beaver Rangers had their hopes of a county cup run ended as they went down losing 6-3 away at Green Lane. Rangers’ trip to Paddock Wood ended in defeat despite their goals coming from Tom Collins, Joe Burden and Lewis Sheldon-Smith and their good spell of form and four match unbeaten sequence was ended by their West Kent Sunday League hosts.

Meanwhile Cheriton AFC also crashed out after what has been a good cup run so far as they were beaten 4-2 away at Thanet League side Dolphin Kings United. Jack Taylor and Division One player of the month Craig Harding scored the goals for Cheriton as they returned from their trip to Ramsgate empty handed and now turn their attention to their promotion push in the league.

 

Kent Sunday Junior Cup- Round Three

Dan Welsh scored twice to help Hythe Royal British Legion into the last-16 of the Kent Sunday Junior Cup as they held on to beat York Arms 3-1 at South Road. Welsh’s brace was accompanied by Dan Arnold’s 18th goal of the season as Jace Dempster’s troops marked Remembrance Sunday with a memorable win to knock out their visitors from Broadstairs and are now the Ashford Sunday League’s last remaining representatives in the competition this season.

 

Kent Sunday Junior Trophy- Round Three

Three teams from Ashford are now guaranteed a place in the full county draw of the Kent Sunday Junior Trophy with Division Two side South Willesborough the first team to qualify for the last-16 following their comprehensive 7-0 home victory over local rivals Lolzors Reserves. Brad Horne’s in-form team are now unbeaten in six games and won their third game in the competition this term thanks to two goals from striker Mike Norris. Further goals from Rhys Pryor, Lewis O’Leary, Tom Wadman, top scorer Mark Hilden and an outrageous long-range effort from Ryan Hollingsbee helped see the Frog Islanders safety through to the next stage.

Singleton Barn will now face Division Three title rivals Mersham Sports Reserves in their rescheduled third round clash next weekend after their second-round opponents Tunbridge Wells Youth Ridgewaye Reserves were unable to field a side following two previous postponements. Meanwhile the scheduled third round tie between Fox Sunday and Troggs was also cancelled due to overnight rain and they will try again next Sunday with the winners joining South Willesborough in the last-16.

 

Premier Division

Brewmaster recovered from going two goals behind to beat reigning champions Kennington 4-2 at Hopes Grove to move level on points with leaders Bromley Green at the top of the Premier Division league table. John Ripley’s side recovered from a shaky start to maintain their 100% winning league record and now only trail Bromley Green on goal difference with a game in-hand. An own goal and a first of the season for Kris Melachrino put visitors Kennington 2-0 ahead inside the opening ten minutes but Brewmaster got back level before half time when first Matt Clarke pulled a goal back from close range before striker Brad Burton showed great composure to fire home the equaliser. The second half saw both teams create decent chances, but it was hosts Brewmaster who showed the initiative when Burton scored his second of the morning on the hour mark before midfielder Louis Plumridge sealed the victory ten minutes from time to net the Brews all-important fourth.

Player-manager Rob Clark was in fine goal scoring form as he hit the back of the net five times to help Mersham pull away from the foot of the league standings with a comfortable 10-2 away victory at bottom of the table Lolzors. Clark’s handful of goals included one from the penalty spot as the villagers picked up only their second league win of the campaign with debutant Sam Wilson also getting off the mark in his first Sunday League appearance since the demise of Ashstone Galacticos. Further goals from brothers Ewan and Luke Stanley and a first of the season from Tom Wilson completed the scoring and cancel out replies form Matt Jarvis and Farid White for the Pumas whose difficult start to the season continues.

 

Division One

Division One leaders Sellindge SSC extended their excellent start to the season to seven wins from seven games as they returned from their trip to Lydd Grasshoppers 3-0 winners. The Swans moved five points clear at the top of the standings following their latest victory thanks to goals from Ross Godden, Tony Dunham and former Hoppers forward Billy Somerville to maintain their 100% winning start. Goalkeeper Dan Green recorded his third clean sheet of the season as Sellindge continue to have the best defensive record in the division this season conceding just 10 goals from seven games.

Horsebox Bars returned to winning ways to get their Premier Division promotion bid back on track with an all-important 2-1 home victory over title rivals Aldington at Swan Lane. Ali Mehmet’s side had lost two in a row away from home going into this clash and went behind as visitors Aldington started well with striker Matt Moon steering home from Ben Hunt’s inviting cross in the tenth minute. Horsebox soon levelled when summer signing Chris Gillam headed in an equaliser six minutes later against his former club after the visitors failed to clear from a corner. With both sides going all out looking for a winner, it was the Horsemen who ensured they claimed maximum points when Jamie White’s late winner beat visiting goalkeeper James Sutton to make it 2-1 to take the victory.

James Fraser added to his ever-growing goal tally as he scored his ninth goal of the season to help Charing to a 5-3 away victory at Folkestone United. Charing picked up only their second win of the campaign to jump up two places to seventh and above their hosts and had former Nailbox midfielder Robbie Burn on form scoring twice for the visitors. Further goals from Luca Fasoli and Ben Harte ensured Charing took home all three points cancelling out goals from Reece Mooring, Callum Russell and Dave Croker for United who drop to ninth in the standings following their fourth successive league defeat.

 

Division Two

Man of the match George Mabb helped Ashford Cavaliers to a 3-1 away win at Ashford Spartans as he scored to send the visitors level on points with AFC Guildhall and Troggs at the top of the Division Two league table. Cavaliers returned to league action after five weeks of cup commitments and postponements and moved up to third only behind the top two on goal difference with games in-hand on both of their title rivals. Further goals from Paul Mabb and Bradley Taffurelli sealed the victory and extend Cavaliers unbeaten start to the campaign despite a decent effort from hosts Spartans who netted through long serving midfielder Liam Edmonds.

Hamstreet are up to fourth in the standings as they returned from their trip to Biddenden 2-1 winners. An Adam Mercer penalty and Dan Sims’ second goal of the season were enough to seal all three points for Mark Rutland’s side as they recorded their third away league victory in their previous four trips and cancelled out youngster George Large’s 14th strike of the season for hosts Biddenden.

 

Division Three

Luke Goddard netted a hat-trick as Mersham Sports Reserves moved to the top of the Division Three table with a convincing 5-0 home victory over Kingsnorth Pilgrims. Top goal scorer Goddard has now scored 14 times for the villagers this season as Tom Shaw’s side look for an immediate return to Division Two following relegation last term. Adam Bellman and John Duke also found the back of the net to extend the hosts lead with stand in goalkeeper Adam Irwin keeping a clean sheet as he deputised for the suspended Andrew Possee between the posts.

Smeeth & Brabourne enjoyed a brilliant 6-3 home win over second place Folkestone United Reserves to move them closer to the leading pack at the top of the table. Tom Keaveney and James Evans both scored twice to move Denis Killeen’s young side to within five points of their opponents in the league standings, with their tally being completed by a Kubo Grynko strike and an own goal. United replied with two Ryan Jeffrey goals and Ashley Sales’ 20th of the season but fell to their second league defeat of the campaign dropping to second place on goal difference behind new leaders Mersham Reserves.

Rhys Hodges bagged a hat-trick to help in-form Ashford United Thirds to a fantastic 9-2 away victory at Aldington Reserves and move them up to third in the table.

Craig Hagley made it 6-0 early in the second half before Hodges scored two more to complete his treble either side of a Sam Wood strike to put Roger Hadlum’s side 9-0 ahead after 70 minutes. Aldington pulled two goals back in the final quarter of an hour through Kevin Ruane and Jack Hollamby, but the hosts remain down in ninth place following a fifth successive league defeat.

Bromley Green Reserves are up to fourth in the standings as they extended their unbeaten league run to five games with a 4-2 home win over Pilgrims Sunday.
