Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Classified -

ASH­FORD un­der-11s took part in the Kent Fes­ti­val at Med­way on Sun­day.

In their open­ing match against Maid­stone, Ash­ford pro­duced some su­perb de­fen­sive play be­fore snatch­ing a 1-0 victory through an ex­cel­lent sec­ond-half try by Rhys Cowdry-Howes.

Ash­ford then bat­tled to a goal­less draw in a phys­i­cally tough en­counter with Shep­pey.

Their third op­po­nents were Sid­cup, and here Ash­ford met their match in a side who seemed to grow stronger as the game went on, with the north Kent side even­tu­ally winning 5-0.

It meant that Ash­ford went into their fi­nal match against West­combe Park need­ing a victory to clinch a place in this week­end’s fi­nals, but with in­juries and tired­ness tak­ing their toll they slipped to a 4-0 de­feat.
