Match Report


On Sunday 30th October 2016 Ditton Minors under 12 travelled to Sittingbourne to go head to head with a very well organised Park Regis Juniors team. This team, so far this season have not been beaten. Unfortunately this is still the case.

Ditton Minors started well and with five minutes in Marcus Stone wrapped his right foot around a half volley which travelled into the top left of the Park Regis goal. The football that was played in this half was clean and progressive and at about twenty minutes Ditton, whilst on the attack received a free kick just outside the Park Regis box. Up stepped Archie Moore who coaxed a right footed shot up, over the wall and into the top right corner of the Park Regis goal. The opposition started to bring their plays together and during an attack and as a result of a loose arm a penalty was awarded. This resulted in the half time score being 2-1 in Ditton Minors favour. Park Regis regrouped and came out with a purpose.  The second half started with Ditton Minors being pushed back at every opportunity and It was not long before they scored two more scores to make the tally 3-2 to Park Regis.

With the game still very competitive and each team drawing upon their skills an incident that saw a handball be seen as a penalty and even more shocking as a red card for a Ditton player was given. With Ditton Minors now disorientated Park Regis attacked in numbers which resulted in the final score being 7-2 to Park Regis.

It was a shame that a non malicious infringement resulted in such a change to what was a really good match.

Man of the match was Owen Green who spent a lot of time trying to close down the defence and make chances. He never gave up and was supported by some excellent drive from Luke Kingsford, Riwaaj Gurung and Alfie Barnes. I have to say that the last five minutes was a team that had regrouped, looked after each other and dealt with a quality full squad coming at them. Well done lads.
