On Sunday 22nd April, in the beautiful sunshine, these two teams met at the Castle Colts ground in Allington to contest the final.
Sittingbourne took the lead very early in the game and followed it up with a second shortly after. But West Kent showed why they had got this far with some attractive football and over the remainder of the first half created a number of chances that were either just over or cleared after more than a few frenetic goalmouth scrambles.
However, it wasnít all one way traffic by any means. At every opportunity Sittingbourne pushed forward and stretched the West Kent defence, but without any reward.
The second half began with West Kent coming out the stronger for the first ten minutes or so, creating a number of chances that were fortunately for Sittingbourne, only close shaves. After one such attack, the ball was cleared and Sittingbourne took advantage of the high line of West Kent, broke out of defence and after a long run downfield, scored their third goal.
Although to their credit West Kent never gave up, they could not deliver a killer ball, and the final score was 3-0 to Sittingbourne. This means that they are double champions, winning both this cup and also the league with a highly impressive record of fourteen wins out of fourteen and are currently eleven points clear of their nearest rival with only two games left to play
A very entertaining match was enjoyed by quite a crowd of supporters and friends from both sides.
