Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Char­lie Roberts scored twice in the last five min­utes to sal­vage a 5-5 draw for K Sports un­der-18s in the Kent Youth League, South Di­vi­sion. Crosses from Jack Bates were fin­ished by Ol­lie As­ton and Matt Morse as Sports took an early 2-0 lead be­fore Ash­ford replied. As­ton re­stored the two-goal cush­ion but Sports were down to 10 men when Jack Ward han­dled on the line and saw red. Ash­ford con­verted the penalty and opened up a 5-3 lead in the se­cond half af­ter Bates missed from the spot. Roberts’ fine strike from the edge of the area gave Sports hope and he scored an in­jury-time equaliser af­ter work­ing his way through the de­fence. Maidstone Mi­nor League side Kings Hill Ath­letic won 4-1 at Hart­ley de Sales in the Un­der-18 Ron Hamer Cup. El­liot Cat­ter­mole’s cross forced an own goal and George Con­roy made it 2-0 from 25 yards. Joe Tobin’s pass set up a se­cond for Con­roy and he went close to a hat-trick with a crafty flick. Shay Moodie rounded off the scor­ing, ar­riv­ing at speed to meet Cat­ter­mole’s cross and fire into the roof of the net.
