Poor First Half
On a very hot October day the two sides met on one of Folkestone’s brand new astro pitches. Maidstone played some good hockey but they struggled to get the measure of the home side and ended the first half 0-4 down.
After a rousing team talk at half time Maidstone rallied back and soon had a goal when Mark Biddolph converted home from a short corner. The rest of the game saw good pressure from Maidstone and much better man to man marking which denied Folkestone as much time on the ball.
Folkestone however scored again just before the end of the game but the visitors had had a much improved second half and will need to build on that good spell for the next game. Despite the score line some excellent saves from Steve Slade in goal and a good performance (MOM) from Robert Clarkson too.
