KentOnline team-of-the-week features players from nine clubs

By KentOnline reporter

Players from nine clubs make KentOnline's team-of-the-week.

Two Maidstone players feature following their FA Cup victory at League 2 Cheltenham while Stones boss Jay Saunders is our manager-of-the-week.

Check out our XI and let us know what you think by using the comments section or by tweeting @kentonlinesport.

Tomas Holy was a first-half spectator but earned his money after the break with several excellent saves as Gills beat Leyton Orient 2-1 in the FA Cup.

Lordswood right-back Frank Griffin was part of a defence who kept free-scoring Sheppey quiet in Southern Counties East - no mean feat - as the hosts won 1-0.

On the left we've gone for Barney Williams, solid as you like as Cray kept another clean sheet in a 1-0 win at South Park

At centre-half it's Jono Richardson, who scored twice in Herne Bay's impressive 4-2 win at Guernsey in Bostik South, and Liam Friend, a rock at the back in Margate's 2-0 Bostik Premier success over Staines.

There were plenty of contenders for our midfield three.

Scott Heard scored his fifth goal of the season as Folkestone climbed to sixth in the Bostik Premier with a 3-1 win over Dorking.

Joe Healy opened the scoring and showed all his usual class as Welling went third in National South thanks to a 2-1 victory at St Albans.

In-form Gillingham midfielder Jake Hessenthaler is back in the team after his man-of-the-match performance against Leyton Orient.

Not many players would get in the side after a red card but you can't ignore Delano Sam-Yorke's two goals in Maidstone's 4-2 FA Cup win at Cheltenham.

Stones team-mate Zavon Hines caused the Robins defence all sorts of problems operating from the left and capped his performance with a classy lob for the third goal.

Completing the side is Hythe striker Dean Grant who scored a 12-minute hat-trick in the first half as Clive Cook's side won 4-2 at Chipstead.
