Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Reliance Senior Trophy Final Special -

Skip­per and manof-the-match Stu­art West ad­mit­ted United were too lack­adaisi­cal early on but said they de­served credit for the way they came back. The de­fender said: “I think we came out think­ing it was go­ing to be a walkover and we were too lack­adaisi­cal. “I don’t know if maybe peo­ple were wor­ried about the heat but they played in it as well, so you can’t blame that. “They were sharper than us for the first 10 min­utes and we were a bit sloppy with the goal but as soon as we went a goal down, we just re­grouped and said we need to start rais­ing our game again now. “We had three or four good chances af­ter they’d scored but Ge­orge (keeper Ge­orge Ka­murasi) also made a bril­liant save which kept us in the game. “Danny told us at half-time to keep our heads, play the way we nor­mally play. He said ba­si­cally the first 45 min­utes there were a few cup fi­nal nerves and to push on. “They’re a good team and to­wards the end they put in a cou­ple of good balls but we stayed strong.”
