Match Report


On 13th November 2016 Ditton Minors under 12's played away to a very well organised Sittingbourne Youth. Within the first few minutes it became apparent that this is a talented footballing side with all the players confident on the ball. We had to do some reorganising with the absence of two strong players in Rhys Wenborn and James Manser. Midway through the first half Archie Moore struck a free kick from the left side near the half way line. This ball floated to the far right wing where Luke Kingsford headed it straight into the path of a blistering Riwaaj Gurung who struck the ball passed their keeper and into right hand side of the goal. A lovely team goal. Unfortunately our team performance today did not match the skill and desire of Sittingbourne Youth, who soon levelled with a break that left Keenan Stone (goalkeeper) with a one on one and resulted in a goal.  The second half did not change our play and the holes in midfield soon got capitalised by Sittingbourne Youth to allow a further two goals to go in against us.

Overall not our best performance but one we can learn from. Man of the match went to Luke Kingsford who gave a never give up attitude.
