Brill Win

An excellent start to the season for an experienced Maidstone 6th X1. Maidstone set about their task against a strong well reinforced Burnt Ash team, with supreme confidence. The defence looked very solid with experienced Martin snuffing out any early threats and super vet Jones proving impossible to beat with his cunning and determination. Ian Linstead made his debut for the club and cemented his place in the side with a very cultured performance. Maidstone were very strong going forward with Davidson creating early chances for experienced striker Swaffer who regretably left the arena with a head injury. The game was fairly even but with confident keeping by Smith senior, a hat trick from Mendoza, and a stunning individual goal from Davidson the opposition were demoralised. Burnt Ash rallied briefly and scored a fine individual goal from the smallest and youngest player on the pitch, but it was all a bit too late. With several key players missing this was a very promising start to what will hopefully be a successful season.
