Great Local Win
Maidstone 5ths started their league season with a 5-1 win against Sutton Valence. Maidstone started slowly and it was against the run of play that Graham Clarkson slotted home on the first meaningful attack by the home side. A well worked short corner allowed Zach Stiff to score his first senior goal with a well taken reverse stick shot. With Jamie Graham again giving a man of the match performance, Maidstone’s defence gave very few scoring opportunities, and a third well taken goal by Kirit Parmer sealed the game. Sutton Valence did pull one back early in the second half, despite some fine keeping by Matt Emery. This only spurred Maidstone into attack again, and David Thompson scored his first of the season from a rebounded shot by Kirit Parmar. A fine lob shot from the edge of the circle by Simon Wood finished a very good team performance.
