West Kent Sunday League News Report –
Sunday 14th April 2019
Artois United are champions of the West Kent Sunday Football League.
Their scheduled opponents, Royal Oak, did not fulfil their fixture.
The three points thus awarded puts them out of reach.
WKSFL Senior Cup
Simla took a big step towards the final of the Senior Cup with a
6-2 win at Armada. Top scorer Ian Parsons scored two, there was
one each for Joe Fuller, Matt Coleman, Clayton Cooper and Dan
Lawrence. Tom Cobb and an un-named Simla player into his own goal
were the host's scorers.
WKSFL Intermediate Cup
The Intermediate Cup final on April 28th will be contested by
Dormansland Rockets and Insulators, whose second leg ties both ended
Insulators beat Crowborough Town 3-0 to record an aggregate win of
This looks like a comprehensive win, but for a long time it was far
from that. Crowborough started very strongly and had most of the
play in the opening half hour. Only a goal line clearance by Martin
Ives kept the scores level. On a (fairly) rare attack the home
side's Martin Page-Mitchell was fouled in the area and Jake Pingault
tucked the penalty away in the 37th minute for a 1-0 Insulators half
time lead. That goal also put him level at the top of the Division
Two goalscorers table with Ben Boodle of Cassidy's Ohoenix. Both
have 33 goals this season, as has Division One's top scorer, Stefan
Draper of Artois United.
Although the Insulators came into the game more in the second half
it still required a goal line clearance by Lewis Disbury and great
save by keeper Max Bridges to keep the lead. The tie was probably
made safe in the 72nd minute when Callum Lawlor turned in the box to
fire home. Ten minutes later the same player scored with a great
shot from the edge of the box.
Apart from an altercation right at the end of the match, the two
ties were played in good spirit by two competitive sides which was
well refereed by Gordon Reader.
Dormansland Rockets claimed a 12-5 win on aggregate over St John's
Yard. St John's Yard only started with ten men, which was up to the
full complement after about 25 minutes. They held their own until
Martyn Bishop broke the deadlock. Further goals were scored by
(almost) fit again Rich Wetton, Miguel Dunne, an own goal and a
header from supersub TJ Stead. Wetton's overall contribution was
a hat-trick, his sixth of the season in WKSFL games.
St Johns did get two late consolation goals, scored by James
Humphrey and Josh Lincoln. St John's to their credit played their
part right to the end and never gave up, like some are inclined.
WKSFL Junior Cup
The first leg tie between Goudhurst United and FC Grinstead ended in
a 3-3 draw, setting up an interesting meeting in the second game on
the 28th. FC Grinstead had won both the league games between
the two. This one was closer with United's scorers being Dave
Denton, James Found and Will Mantle. Grinstead scorers were Joe
Moulding, Keiron Bence and Jamie Brazenall.
No games played.
No games were scheduled.
TW Ridgewaye need to win all their remaining games to claim the
Division Three title. The first of those should have been a game
with Insulators Reserves, but the latter could not raise a team,
thus gifting Ridgewaye the three points.
Biggin Hill are ending the season in style. With only one league
defeat since the turn of the year, they will finish third if they
gain three points from their final game. On Sunday they travelled to
Tonbridge United and went home with a 5-0 victory. A hat-trick by
Jack Allan was instrumental, Ben Lambert and Scott Gaistin also
scored. Between the sticks, Craig Fisher kept a clean sheet.
