Sunday Round-up: Barnaby Fisher nets a hat-trick!

The Sunday XI and Sunday Reserves having completed their seasons, the spotlight fell on the old 'uns and young 'uns.

The Vets and Senior Vets contested the annual derby game at Farrow Fields on Sunday, and honours were shared in a keenly contested 1-1 draw. Mark Fisher equalising for the Vets after Jay Hardy had given the seniors the lead with his 30th goal of the season.

The Colts finished their season in style with a 4-2 away win against Sevenoaks Town. Barnaby Fisher scored his first hat-trick for the club, with leading scorer Finley Williams also on target. After a difficult start to their first ever Kent Youth League campaign, the boys, guided by Paul Raggett and Adam Dannatt, finished seventh out of eleven sides, including the likes of Maidstone United, Dartford and Sevenoaks Town. They have shown they can do more than compete at this level and are looking forward to next season.

Saturday Round-up

Only the Reserves and Third XI still had matches by this weekend.

The Reserves lost 2-1 at home to local rivals Orpington in their final match of the season, leading scorer Kai George netting his 11th goal of the campaign.

The Third XI missed out on the Division One title, losing 4-1 away to Russellers in the title decider, Jack Randall getting the Guild's goal.

Now and then...
