We've got a promising future ahead of us, says Kent Football United boss Ennio Gonnella

Friday 03rd March 2017

KENT FOOTBALL UNITED manager Ennio Gonnella admits his side lost their bottle during their 2-0 home defeat to Sutton Athletic last weekend.


Arlie Desanges scored his 37th goal of the season to give Ben Young’s side the victory, after Will Roomes had given the Hextable-based visitors’ the lead.

Rusthall (67 points from 28 games) and Glebe (63 points from 25 games) occupy the two promotion places, while K Sports (59 points from 26 games), Kent Football United (56 points from 27 games) and Sutton Athletic (54 points from 27 games) follow.

“Last weekend’s game was one I have forgotten in a hurry. It was a case of bottle going and very good missed scoring opportunities,” said Gonnella.

One player who took the flack was £200 per week striker Stuart Zanone, who Tweeted: “Shambles, lose a game last week to be told nobody is getting paid for it.  Should have listened to certain people about this club.”

Kent Football United are without a game tomorrow, but they travel to Chislehurst to play Eltham Palace at Glebe’s Foxbury Avenue ground next Wednesday night (19:45).

“Business end fast approaches and for us at Kent Football United is just to keep going the way we have done this season by being established as a top four side, as appose to a traditional bottom of the table side.

“I have all year only promised one thing to change the fascia of Kent Football United and while we sit in the top half of the table all year and with a possible Final in a cup, along with ground developments that Roy and Sam MacNeil have done can only be seen as a successful season with a promising future ahead of us.

“Credit is due to Roy and Sam working tirelessly hard to make sure all the hard work and efforts are paying off for them once and for all.

“I’m not saying the season is over as I’m sure there will still be some slipped up results that will go in our favour but for us it is to just concentrate on what we are doing and try to win football matches.”
