Ash­ford U17s 0, Maid­stone 25 WHAT be­gan as an evenly bal­anced game de­te­ri­o­rated, from Ash­ford’s point of view, into a walk in the park for Maid­stone.

The first half was even, with only a try in the dy­ing min­utes giv­ing the vis­i­tors an edge.

In the sec­ond half, how­ever, Ash­ford lost their way a bit and gave the ini­tia­tive to Maid­stone, who scored three more tries and a penalty.

A trip to West­combe Park beck­ons this week and, on this show­ing, Ash­ford will find it tough to com­pete with ‘the big boys’.
