Group A is still in its early stages. There can't be many Speldhurst
Rangers players who have scored four goals in a game and yet be on the
losing side, but that was Rob Runciman's Sunday morning when his team
lost at home 6-4 to Green Lane. Considering the respective league
positions, Speldhurst came out of the match with their heads held high.
Runciman tormented the visitors back five, and Andy Watts was a stalwart
in the middle. Liam Baldwin surprisingly wasn’t lobbed in goal.
Armada recorded their first Senior Cup win with a 4-1 win over
Insulators, whom they had beaten 5-1 in the League early in October.
Insulators started this game with ten men as three players failed to
show. Not a good start! They were up to a full side by twenty minutes.
With a couple of reserves in the team it was a good effort to keep the
score level for the first half hour. Armada took the lead as a through
ball beat the defence and Harry Tampsett r slotted in past the oncoming
keeper. H 1-0
The home side quickly added to their lead within 10 minutes of the restart, Ben Parkin scoring but the hardworking Insulators side pulled one back when Fabian Fernandez scored from close range. There were chances at both ends, but Armada added two more in the final ten minutes through Parkin and Dan Hickling as Insulators tired. Well done to Armada but a real team effort by the 'Slator boys!
Pembury Sunday could not raise a team for their game with Artois United. A decision on the award of points etc is awaited.

Group B has a bit more shape to it. Simla were given a really good
game by Second Division Charcott in their 1-0 win at Tonbridge Farm. Top
scorer Ian Parsons scored their only goal. Joe Cullip kept his seventh
clean sheet this season and is well on the way to that particular award.
Biggin Hill's move to new premises at St Mary Cray seems to have done
some good. They gained only their second win this season with a 4-1
result over St John's Yard. Top man for the Hill was Emmanuel Awokunle
with a hat-trick. Scott Galstin scored the other. I do not have St
John's Yard scorer.
The game between Cassidy's Phoenix and Royal Oak was one to fall foul of rain and pitch conditions.
