|West Kent Sunday League Division One including Sunday 24th September|
The demise of TW Foresters, a flood in the changing rooms at FC
Grinstead's ground and Langton Green being unable to raise a team meant
that only two games took place on Sunday. But eighteen goals were scored
in those two!
Ten goals were shared at Tonbridge Farm, where hosts Tonbridge Invicta gained their first points of the season at the expense of Goudhurst United.
Four goals from Tommy Welham lead the way, the other two being scored
by Alex Evans and Adam Jones. In a day not good for goalkeepers, United
fought back with a hat-trick by Will Mantle and a fourth from Ben Young.
In the other game there were only eight goals. Six of them were scored by Cassidy's Phoenix, whose 6-2 win over Brenchley puts them into third place on goal difference. Two goals each from Alberto Fernandez and Rob Harman, one each from Dan Watson and Alex Kibbey ensured their success. Brenchley's goals came through Mike Williams and Dave Caddick.

A good few goals were scored in Division Three also, including two more six goal hauls.
Top performance was Speldhurst Rangers six - nil win at East Grinstead Mavericks.
Rangers bounced back from last week's disappointing defeat with a
controlled win over Mavericks. For 30 minutes they were in complete
control leading through a tight finish from Ollie Crees, a tap in from
Jolyon Wheller and a thunderbolt from Josh Fermor.
Mavericks pushed their way back into the game and finished the half with a couple of chances, but remained 3-0 to Rangers at the break.
The second half continued in the same vein as James Hughes made it four with a lovely turn and shot before Joe Hearndon came off the bench to join in with two well taken goals. Mavericks went on to miss a penalty, however Rangers were dominant throughout. Liam Baldwin was Rangers shut out goalie.
Also scoring six were Tonbridge Origin Reserves, visiting St John's Yard
at the Hilbert. Yard took an early lead, a goal by Mush Miah on 17
minutes but, said secretary Tony Vanns, it all went downhill from there.
Origin's Ben Holder scored a hat-trick and there were further goals
from Bobby Brown, Johnny Barber and Will Ashenden to make up the tally.
In reply, Yard's other scorers were Jack Veness and Josh Williams.
Tonbridge Casuals have obviously become used to playing on real grass. Three games in and they are top of Division Three with a 100% record. Alex Hill scored twice and Dan Green once in their 3-1 win over Insulators Reserves at Tonbridge Farm. Insulators Reserves were without four of the team that started the season well last weekend and soon found themselves two goals down. The score remained the same at half time. Insulators came into the game more in the second half, but that improvement was undone when Casuals scored a fine third to put the game beyond reach. Player/Manager James Philpott came on and scored a consolation goal as the away side pressed to make the game interesting, but the home side came out worthy winners
