Hurlimann Kent League Division One

Town made their way to the other side of Tunbridge Wells to take on Rusthall who have been struggling in the League this season. Who could have known this was to be a record scoring day for the Kent League?  Town were giving a debut to ex England schoolboy Michael Scott who played in the very first international game at the new Wembley Stadium. The game was only 3 minutes old when Town opened the scoring from the left hand side of the box. After 5 minutes Town scored again through Andre Marques. The Red’s scored another three goals before the half time whistle with the 5 – 0 score line being a fair reflection of the first half.  Scott came on at half time and Town continued to play football with the Rusthall players literally becoming spectators, Rusthall made two substitutions to try and stem the onslaught, but it got worse as goal after goal went in. Town went on to score four goals in the last 15 minutes. The final whistle sparked a large round of applause from approximately 90 spectators.

The Rusthall manager mentioned they are not looking forward to their visit to the Belmont in a few weeks time  for a Division 1 cup match.

The scorers were Marques 5, Hill 2, Collis 2, Moir, Delaney, Keyte
