The Kent FA Senior Trophy provided us with 82 goals in the 15 games with 5 sides scoring 7 times or more!
FC Elmstead were the top scorers as Dom Weston hit a hat-trick in an 8-1 win at Kent Football United. Erith Town cruised past Meridian VP 7-0 which was the same scoreline that Beckenham Town overcame Lydd Town and Sheppey United defeated Snodland Town. Chatham Town fielded a much-changed line-up at West Wickham and were made to pay heavily as the Southern Amateur side ran out 7-1 winners.
Bearsted are in the next round thanks to a 5-2 win at home to Rusthall, as are Glebe who saw off Welling Town 4-2 in an entertaining game at Bayliss Avenue. Kennington came from behind to beat Rochester United 4-1 while SC Thamesmead were impressive to also win 4-1 as they knocked Holmesdale out of the competition. There were 2-0 wins for K Sports and Fisher while Corinthian are also in the second round hat thanks to a 3-1 home victory against Deal Town.
Bridon Ropes were behind early to a Luke Coleman goal but came back to seal a 3-1 win over Sutton Athletic to continue their strong Cup form.
Greenways were the only First Division team to beat a Premier side as they scored twice late on in their local derby at Punjab United.
On Sunday Lordswood were comfortable winners over Erith & Belvedere with Luke Medley scoring a second half hat-trick as the Lords progresses to round two with ease.
