UNDER 18s REACH CUP FINAL – 12th MAY 2019
GALLAGHER STADIUM, MAIDSTONE, KICK OFF 2.15pm
– see semi final report below
The Under 18s had a good 2017/18 season finishing runners up to a strong Kings Hill team. An excellent finish considering most of the team were only just 17 or younger. Having had that season together the lads are looking to push on even further and are aiming, with the help of new manager Steve Moss, for the title this season.

MATCH REPORTS by Gary Jeffrey
Snodland Town 4 – 1 Roseacre Raiders
Another 3 points in the bag, after a tough game against Roseacre Raiders. They put up a good fight and were much better than their league position suggests. We scored 4 very good goals and apart from one lapse of concentration, we defended solidly. The first goal was a cracking 25 yard strike by Josh Brown, followed by a great individual goal from James Jeffrey. Roseacre scored from a corner to bring themselves back into the game, but Zach Malt soon made it 3-1 after another fantastic run and assist by James.
The second half was scrappy and got a bit feisty after Charlie and Josh were both clattered. I’ve heard this morning that Josh is in hospital after falling on his wrist, so fingers crossed he’s OK. We did score a 4th goal through Ciaran St Clair, who turned and finished superbly after a great through ball by Jack Foster.
Man of the match: James Jeffrey (Frustrating at times, but also brilliant at others).
The 7 remaining games are against the top 6 teams, so it’s going to be a very tough run in, but we have the players to win the league.
Snodland Town 7 – 1 MPE Sports
Another game chalked off and another 3 points in the bag. Strong winds meant it was almost impossible to play good football, but we did score some decent goals and created endless chances. The MPE keeper was man of the match and made at least 5 unbelievable saves.
We were missing Ben, Scott, Ciaran and Jamie P so we had a chance to rotate the squad and give everyone plenty of game time. Fair play to MPE who battled very well until the end. Goals from Josh (2), James (2), Zach, Will and Jack.
Snodland Town 2 Aylesford Royals 1 (Cup Semi Final)
I am so, so proud of all the boys today. A fantastic effort from every single player and they fully deserve to be playing at the Gallagher Stadium on the 12th May.
Blustery winds, rain and the three worst officials I’ve ever seen, made it almost impossible to play decent football, but the boys all grafted and worked so hard for each other. So many things happened today that’s it’s impossible to type them all up. 1-0 down at half time, I told the lads to stay positive and the next goal would win the game and so it proved.
Jack Foster played a sizzler of a free kick into the Aylesford box and the keeper could only parry to Ben Wilson, who followed up and scrambled it into the corner. Then 3 minutes later, James Jeffrey played a peach of a corner in and Jamie Payne leapt like a gazelle, to power home a header from 6 yards out. Awful conditions, awful officials, but we won the game and have reached the Cup Final.
Man of the match: Ben Wilson. Just everywhere, again!! Superb.
A few key notes from today:
Tommy’s brilliant reaction save to deny the Aylesford forward, early in the second half. Top draw and kept us in the game.
Zach Malts goalline clearance, which was at 1-1 I think? Amazing stuff.
The 2 penalties which were both given to us and then denied by the referee, even though the Aylesford player got sent off for the tackle on James.
The fantastic support from all the parents, friends and family.
The celebrations at the final whistle. You don’t get to live things like this out often, so make the most of them and I think we did.
The brilliant effort from Steve and Jamie Moss, who arrived an hour early to set up both goals and nets, then stayed behind for half an hour, clearing up both changing rooms and tidying everything away.
Snodland Town 2-1 Swale Magpies
A very tense game yesterday against a good Swale Magpies side, who worked tirelessly, but we eventually managed to break their resistance but it’s very hard to describe the game. We created several excellent chances but didn’t take them. We then went 1-0 behind after a good finish from the Swale player. Despite playing very well, somehow, we were down at half-time.
We made a couple of substitutions at half time. James and Scott both went very close, before Ben showed the forwards how to do it, by scoring from 15 yards out after a nice run. We continued to pile on the pressure, but the Swale keeper made save after save. It wasn’t until the final 5 minutes that we scored the winner, with Charlie Parrott scoring a 20 yard rocket into the bottom corner. A massive 3 points and a big well done to Charlie and Ben on scoring their first goals of the season.
A great effort from all the lads again. Tommy was alert and made a couple of crucial interceptions, Billy had his best game of the season, Harry and Kieron were rock solid again, Will was back to his best, Ben and Charlie were both excellent, Kyle was lively and worked his socks off, Ciaran was a threat until his injury, Scott worked his socks off and should have scored a couple. Jack was always available and worked hard and the subs all made a difference. Defensively we are very strong. We’ve got a great goalkeeper, the best centre back pairing in the league and full backs who defend very well and can also get forward. Our midfield works harder than any other team and we have so many attacking options it’s scary. We need to be a lot more clinical in front of goal and we have the players to destroy most teams. We will have a game plan for next week and all the boys will have specific jobs to do. This is the biggest game of the season and if we win, we are in the cup final.
Man of the match: Ben Wilson (OUTSTANDING – Best performance of the season, by any player)
