Captain's Blog 3rd Oct 2015

The league season kicked off for the Men's teams, and the Ladies' teams continued their good start to the season.  With 5 wins out of 7, it was a pretty good day.
A depleted Russets 1st XI were heavily beaten by a well-organised Folkestone 1st XI, but there were good performances by youngsters Dan Edwards and Wilf Andrews on their league debuts, Dan scoring both goals in the 8-2 defeat.
After a slow start, the 2nd XI beat BBHC 1st XI 4-3, with a brace for Tom Edwards, a first goal for Matt Connell and a winner from Rory St John Stevens.  The 3rd XI dominated Burnt Ash for an hour, but failed to convert several chances in a 3-1 victory.  The 4th XI beat the same opponents 5-2, and the 5th XI lost 3-0 to a strong Deal side.
The Ladies' 1st XI went top of their league after a strong performance against Tunbridge Wells, and the 2nd XI won again to sit safely in mid-table.
