Village tournament getting bigger
Appledore Football Club’s two-day six-a-side tournament proved a great success, raising around £900.
The money will go towards funding senior and junior football in the village.
Organiser Jim Kelly said: “We had 20 senior and 40 junior teams taking part.
“It was only our second year but we attracted more teams this time and there was also a gap in the calendar locally.”
The club are planning to field teams in the Ashford & District Youth League this season for the first time in their 52-year history.
Winners: Juniors: under8s: Hempstead Valley; under-9s and 10s: Pilgrims; under-11s: John Mayne School (Biddenden).
Seniors: (Saturday) Rye Town, ( Sunday) Granny’s FC.
