Well, how time has flown since our last post. Following early wins against Blackheath (away) and Canterbury at home, we faced our local rivals, TJ's at home in the Kent League. Both teams were unbeaten at that point in the League campaign and a hard fought 24-7 victory against TJsand a further scrappy and muddy win away at Aylesford (0-25) for Sevenoaks sent us into the Christmas break as League leaders.
Our last league game was due to be against Beckenham at Sevenoaks and should have been before the Christmas break, however as was the case with a number of fixtures in the League this year, Beckenham conceded the game at the last minute and whilst it was not how we would have preferred to end the campaign, we finished as Kent U17 League champions.
A great achievement for an exceptionally talented squad, that only manages limited time on the training field. Throughout the campaign the boys have been resolute in defence conceding only one try on the way to winning the League. Huge credit must be given to our U16s, particularly Ross Sinclair and Michael Johnson who have been immense when called upon to assist us in our campaign.
So we now enter the Kent Cup campaign with a home draw against Folkestone in the Quarter-final stage and with our sights firmly set on chasing a remarkable 5th successive Cup title.
