The University of Kent’s Community Cup team played their first fixture of their Kent FA Community Cup campaign on Sunday morning. Despite the gusting winds of Storm Ciara, the team managed to rally together and walk away with an impressive 4-0 victory against Lateef Restaurant.
The first half was an interesting performance with both teams struggling to break away from the right hand side of the pitch due to the powerful cross winds. With just minutes of the first half remaining, Billy Radford, managed to secure the opener, with a big help from a deflection and the unpredictable weather conditions.
With the wind behind them in the second half, the team pressed on and goals from Charlie Dast (1) and James Budge (2) secured the victory for the team.
The victory against Lateef Restaurant puts the team in a strong position going into their last fixture of the group stage (hopefully in better weather) against Christchurch University on Sunday 1st March, 10:30am kick-off, at The Pavilion, University of Kent. The Pavilion Café Bar will be open for refreshments, so why not show your support for the team.
