Sunday round-up: disappointment for the Sunday Reserves

The Sunday Reserves failed in their bid to emulate the Sunday XI and progress to the last four of the Kent Sunday county competitions. Goals from Aaron Evans and Steve Townsend were not enough as FC Royals Sports & Social won 4-2 at Farrow Fields.

The Sunday XI had a free week.

Both Vets teams returned to action after weather-enforced breaks. The Vets won 4-2 away to STC Vets with Alan Fines hitting a brace and Jamie Titford and Damien Preston also on the scoresheet.

The Senior Vets drew 1-1 with West Farleigh Vets at Norman Park. Peter Harvey scored for the Guild.  Thanks to Obi Ugwumba and Patrice Mongelard for sharing goalkeeping duties and especially to Waine Hetherington who gave up his game to referee. A great job he did too.

Saturday round-up: Thirds through to County Cup semis

The Third XI are through to the semi-finals of the Kent County Cup following a 2-1 home win over Medway Stars.

Gary Harrigan claimed the first goal, then an early second half Nick Stannard header gave the Guild a cushion in the face of an onslaught from the visitors, which brought a single goal ten minutes from time.

Paul Eddleston's side will meet Borden Village Reserves of the Rochester and District League in the semi-final at Farrow Fields on March 3.

The First XI needed extra time to defeat Welling Park 4-2 in the third round of the Bill Manklow Inter Regional Challenge Cup. The Guild recovered from a two-goal deficit to bring the scores level at 90 minutes.  Goals were spread evenly between Lamar Myers, Taylor Bowley, Ray Knight and Steve McQueen.  

Another Division One West side, Club Langley will visit Farrow Fields for the quarter-final.

The Fourth XI were well beaten in their first match in the President's Cup group stage. They went down 6-1 away to South Dulwich, who are the Third XI's league opposition next week. Myles Tanner scored the Guild's consolation.

The Reserves had no fixture scheduled.

Sunday XI county cup semi-final

The Sunday XI have been drawn away to OBDSFL Premier Division Craven Park in the semi-finals of the Kent Sunday Junior Cup.

The match is scheduled for March 4.
