Strong results continue, but Men's 1st XI give their league a further head-start.
The Mens' 1st XI were beaten 5-0 by a well-organised Tunbridge Wells, leaving them bottom of the league for another week. A little reminiscent of Chelsea FC.
The Ladies' 1st XI failed to convert a number of chances, so were held 1-1 by Holcombe and slipped to 3rd in their league. The Ladies' 2nd XI won again, this time 4-0, and also find themselves in 3rd place. The ladies' strong start to the season is great to see - well done, all.
The Men's 2nd XI roasted Cliftonville 1st XI 6-3, with hat-tricks from Tom Edwards & Mike Daley, whilst the 3rd XI earned a hard-fought draw at Canterbury, with Patrick Sims equalising on the stroke of half-time.
The 4th XI fielded a side strewn with youngsters, Louis Ridge scoring the goal in another 1-1 draw - Russets stay top as a result.  The 5th XI had a week off, with Folkestone having withdrawn their team from the league.
