Report by Bob Haynes

Ramsgate Under 16s continued their 100% winning start to the season, having already beaten Folkestone Invicta at home and Milton Athletic away, with a 5-0 victory over Ashford Town at Southwood on Sunday.

Luke Hasler put through Neil Hoggart for the first goal, which the top scorer finished sweetly. The second came from a corner, Sam Haynes half-volleying from 12 yards.

After the break came the goal of the game, Luke Hasler, on the edge of the box feigned to shoot with his right but cut back around the Ashford right back, rifling in a low screamer from an acute angle.  Further goals came from John Ryan, following in from a long-range power-drive by Nathan Jeffreys and Luke Hasler bagged his second with a cool header from a corner.

This win puts Ramsgate clear in second place in the Kent league, with a superior goal difference to Maidstone United, over whom they have a game in hand.  Next Sunday (5th October) the Under 16s will be at home to Chatham Town, 11.00am kick-off.
