Ken­ning­ton Ju­niors en­tered two un­der-12 teams in the Barm­ing FC tour­na­ment and both ac­quit­ted them­selves ad­mirably.

The teams (pic­tured) were named as colours, with the Am­bers be­ing nar­rowly elim­i­nated in the semi­fi­nals af­ter a penalty shoot out.

The Black team how­ever went fur­ther and won the com­pe­ti­tion out­right by de­feat­ing the host club 1-0 in a close-fought fi­nal.

The club’s suc­cess was made all the more im­pres­sive be­cause the play­ers were par­tic­i­pat­ing in an age group with un­der-13 teams.

Coaches Tim Han­ley and Kevin Ruane were de­lighted with the per­for­mance of all the boys as their prepa­ra­tions for Kent Youth League foot­ball at un­der-13 level in Septem­ber gain mo­men­tum.
