Range Rovers under-7s made their first competitive appearance, at Sittingbourne Lions’ tournament in Faversham at the weekend.
Rovers under-7s (pictured right) and the Colts under-7s (pictured below) both made an impression on the spectators at the Abbey School, playing three games each in the friendly tournament.
The under-11s entered two teams and the Whites came close to a final
Only a penalty shoot-out defeat in the semi-final against Sittingbourne denied them.
After extra-time neither team had scored and so the match went to penalties. Successful kicks by Max Curtis, Charlie Feast, Sam Allen and Charlie Young kept Rovers’ hopes alive before Lions won the shoot-out.
Earlier, the Whites had drawn 1-1 with Faversham Town Rangers, with a goal from Harry Bates, with keeper Danny Hook-Utting doing well in goal.
Along the way, the team scored six goals in a game with efforts from Danny Rumbol (two penalties), Feast, Curtis and Johnny Hulus.
The under-11 Stripes side, meanwhile, struggled for goals and finished their opening two games without success.
A goal from Darren Harrison finally broke the drought, but it wasn’t enough to win the game.
