It has been another remarkable season for the Kent Football United U18's winning another League and Cup double with a 7-1 win over a battling Folkestone Invicta side. The team have now won back to back doubles to add to their Tina Marshall Cup and Kent County Cup back at U16s.
As a club we are a very proud of where the girls have come from and the commitment, drive and desire to improve which all of them have shown. Our development as a team has been on producing a passing style of football encouraging each player to be comfortable on the ball and believe in their own ability. We encourage flair but also promote making the right decisions to enable possession retention at all times. The girls have been a pleasure to work with and we have made some fantastic friends over the last four years.
Next season we are progressing into senior ladies and the Southern Counties Womens Div 1 East for the next chapter in this exciting story. I am hoping the girls continue the philosophy which has made us a successful youth team and pushes on into the senior game.
We would finally like to thank the KGLFL for their support during our four year stay in the league and we are hoping to introduce some younger grassroots teams in the near future
