Kent & Sussex Regional 1
Folkestone 1st Xl 11 : 0 Sutton Valence 1st Xl

Out of the fog…
But few clear chances
Sutton Valence took 12 players down to Folkstone to take on another team placed above them, the 12 who managed to find their way through the fog down to the ground started with good intentions of holding out for some points. Unfortunately, this was not the case and after a few big opportunities from Folkestone the Sutton Valence team looked out of touch with each other and the cracks started to show, as 2 quick goals were scored despite desperate attempts to save them on the line from James Stanford. After a few arguments and aggressive play from Chris Johnson where he attacked an innocent spectator with an ‘ariel’, Valence tried to pull something back with some lovely link-up play from Marcus, Fred and Kevin down the right-hand side, but unfortunately just couldn't find the end product, leaving the first half 0-6 down.

Going into the second half Valence were looking to try and take some positives out of the game with their new-found ability to pass and move with the ball, but this was quickly changed as the tiredness started to sink in and the gaps became easier for Folkestone to find as they slotted 5 more goals past an already beaten Valence to take the game to 11-0.
