Maidstone Mens 4s
Sevenoaks 7 (f)
|Date||Saturday 24th September|
Maidstone started with a full complement of players as this week Andy Turner managed to find the venue with no problems! A larger than usual squad was well utilised on a warm day with end to end play in the first half producing chances for both sides. Sevenoaks were lucky to end the first half level.
Within ten minutes of the restart Rob Clarkson scored for the home side to make it 1-0. Tim Pearson (playing his testimonial game for Maidstone before moving to the Midlands) had his usual solid game in the midfield as did Matt Brook and Steve Slade (in goal) who both had strong performances.
As this was a pre season friendly, Maidstone rotated the larger than usual squad to give all their players time on the pitch and this disrupted the formation allowing Sevenoaks to score twice later on. MoM Tim Pearson.
Despite the scoreline there were lots of positives for Maidstone to take forward into the new league season starting next week.
