After 22 League games, and 106 goals scored, K Sports 1st XI have earned promotion to Kent Open Premier A for the 2018/19 season. This makes it back to back promotions for the side, following the change to K Sports HC and the move back home to K Sports Cobdown. A 17 game undefeated streak helped the side, skippered by Neil Mitchell, to second place in the league, on goal difference. It did all come down to the last game of the season, where three points were needed to secure second place, which the side managed, clocking up an impressive 3-1 victory at home.
After the game, Captain Neil Mitchell was over the moon and said “It’s fantastic to have achieved what we set out to do as a team and a club, at the start of the season. On the first game of preseason we talked about doing the basics well, and working harder than anyone we played against. We’d started the season with a good foundation, but this season the guys have really bought into the collective ideas and worked incredibly hard as a team to achieve what we have. Our move back to K Sports Cobdown in November 2017 added fuel to the fire in our game and lead us to a 17 game unbeaten streak!”.
Well Done KSHC M1s!!
