Maidstone Mens 5s
Tunbridge Wells Vets
|Date||Saturday 29th October|
|Scorers||Kirit Parmar, Nigel Swaffer|
Great Local Win
Maidstone started more determined than in recent matches, and wanted to impose themselves early on. Most of the early play was from the home side and a neat double one-two between Swaffer and Parmar saw the latter hammer home to take the lead. Tunbridge Wells were always liable to score on the break but the defence stood firm and Maidstone turned around 1-0 up. Angear had several penetrating runs giving the attack chances to increase the goal tally but it was Weller driving forward who found Swaffer unmarked in the “D” who guided the ball neatly into the corner of the goal. Despite several short corners and half chances Maidstone could not increase their lead, and relied on Smith in goal near the end to keep a clean sheet.
