U16 Boys vs QE Favershamfootball02

The boys put in an outstanding performance in the Kent Cup tonight. Up against tough opposition, the boys started brightly and were unlucky to go a goal down against the run of play to a scrappy long throw. A well created second goal saw us go two down not long afterwards. After physically dominating in midfield through Luke Howe and Chaz Brahma, two chances were created and it took good saves from the opposition goal keeper to keep EHS at bay.
