On Saturday 13th April, at 1pm about 18 vice presidents met at the clubhouse for a very convivial curry lunch and chat about old times. It was great to see so many old (!) faces around the club.
At 1.45 they went over to see the Men's 1s final match of the season - versus....Sutton Valence. The match ended as a 0-0 draw but was a fantastic advert for the sport. Fast and skilled - all it lacked were goals. We overheard comments regarding the ball running (bobbling) on grass and whether they would be able to keep up!
All in all a fantastic day. The clubhouse was packed, which was helped by the fact this was a local derby.
The Men's draw and Woking's defeat means that Maidstone escape the relegation playoffs. The Ladies' 2s win of 4-3 earlier in the day keeps them top of Kent Prem. They just have to wait on Burnt Ash results. The latter could pip them at the post by 1 point!
