ANDREW GIDLEY’S WEEKLY ROUNDUP – 22nd NOVEMBER 2014
It was lucky 13 for Chipstead as new boss Lee Roots celebrated his first win in charge with a 5-2 victory over Long Lane in the Bill Manklow Inter-Regional Challenge Cup. Club Chairman Alan Black was a happy man. He said: ” A win at last! Despite 12 defeats prior to this, the team spirit has been fantastic. Lee stepped in four weeks ago and has got all the lads playing for the club. We had 19 first team players at training in mid-week – not bad for a team that hadn’t won a game. Let’s hope we can now start to grind out results in the league.” However a reshuffled fixture list means the Sevenoaks villagers are without a game this week. Joe Flarry and skipper James Porter’s deflected free-kick made it 2-0 at half-time with Charlie Hackshall’s penalty and two from Baz Agoro wrapping things up.
Elsewhere, Gary Gorman’s hat-trick helped leaders Metrogas beat Erith 147 Sports 3-2.
Alan Coomes watched today’s game featuring Division Three West leaders Johnson & Phillips at home against Orpington Reserves which resulted in a 4-0 win for the home team.

The Kent County League Supports SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It
The Kent County League is proud to support the Kent FA Youth Council’s ‘SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It’ campaign. Supported by members of Kent FA staff, the Youth Council collaborated with Fixers UK, a charity which supports young people across the UK to take action and change things for the better, to orchestrate a campaign tackling foul and abusive language in the game. From initial concept development to the execution of filming a promotional video, the Kent FA Youth Council has directed the campaign to help eliminate and raise awareness of the negative impact of bad language in football. The Kent County League looks forward to offering our support for this initiative to combat foul and abusive language in the game, as we believe for football in the county to continue to grow in a positive way, such behaviour needs to be tackled. The Kent County League are committed to creating safe and inclusive football environments for everyone and as a result fully support the Kent FA Youth Council for bringing this issue to the forefront of grass roots football in Kent. You can watch the Youth Council’s video below.
