London 3 South East champions Maidstone Rugby Club are now chasing Senior Vase Twickenham glory
By Craig Tucker
Maidstone Rugby Club clinched the London 3 South East title with
their best display of the season.

four more wins to complete the season with a 100% record.
Coach Andy Foley (pictured) was delighted to land the title but
is switching his focus to Maidstone’s bid to reach the Senior Vase
final at Twickenham.
He said: "It was great to win the title with what was probably
our best performance of the season. Horsham are a good side and
they kept coming at us but to score 95 points says a lot about
He added: "The priority this year was to win the league and
that’s done and dusted. A lot of people are talking about the 100%
record but I’d rather keep it off the radar.
"It’s not often it happens and it’s a hard thing to achieve. The
boys want to go through the season unbeaten but I’d rather
concentrate on the Senior Vase.
"We’re 160 minutes away from Twickenham and want to go one
better than last season when we reached the semi-finals."
Maidstone, who host Cantabrigian in the Senior Vase regional
final next Saturday (March 16), still have a part to play in who
joins them in London 2 South East next season.
This Saturday they travel to second-placed Sheppey
