Congratulations to Tankerton FC who overcame Hotel DeVille 3-1 in the Kent FA Vets Final held at The Belmont.

With a gate of 170, some 110 more than this time last year; for the neutral this game was enthralling as the two teams battled out an excellent final played on a near perfect pitch given the time of the season.

Tankerton went into HT with a two nil advantage, only for DeVille to make much more of the second half and despite their valiant second half display couldn’t overcome the first half deficit.

Michael Tapp, Chair of the Kent FA Cups committee presented the Trophies to the appointed Match Officials, both sets of players & to the Man of the Match – Tankerton’s 10 Nick Green, whilst the match was very kindly sponsored by Koolpak (the UK’s leading supplier of First Aid & Injury products) the first sponsors of this competition that attracted 12 new entries to the competition this season.

A member of the Kent FA commented that this was one of their best finals yet, with the organisation second to none as Town officials illustrated just how they pull together to host such a final with the Kent FA & opponents wanting for nothing.
