Kent County League win trophy five years running
The British Energy Kent County League won The Tom Stabler Trophy for the fifth year in succession with a 3-0 victory over the Matthew Clark Sussex County League at Eastbourne Town on Wednesday, writes Stephen McCartney.

Manager Ian Hamer saw his side, weakened by injuries and work commitments, take a 50th minute lead when a left wing cross was cleverly converted by Old Roan's Dave Greenslade.

Greenway's Sam Jeffrey made a fantastic goal-line clearance to deny the home side an equaliser and the ball was played immediately to the other end for Greenslade to net his second of the evening.

With two minutes remaining, the home side's defence was again brought into action, blocking a shot which rebounded to Jeffrey who found the net on his second attempt, as Old Roan's Sean O'Keefe was presented with the trophy at the end of the game.

Full Kent Squad: Dave Richardson (Bearsted), John Cottram (Cray Valley), Rob Jeffery (Greenways), Sean O'Keefe (Old Roan), Chris Ring (Crockenhill), Scott Hall (Beauwater), Scott Clark (Cray Valley), Phil Ellis (Beauwater), Dave Greenslade (Old Roan), Matt Knuckie (Cray Valley), Sam Jeffery (Greenways), Jamie Salvidge (Sheerness East), Danny Jeffery (Greenways), Richard Filmer (Bearsted)
