Football: Wells knocked out of cup for second time in a week


DESPITE Tunbridge Wells Manager Jason Bourne taking to the pitch himself, his team was unable to craft an away Kent Senior Trophy win over Cray Valley.

In a game of numerous chances for both sides, a single strike settled the matter.

Bourne praised the side’s efforts, which had followed a tough week in which they also exited in the league cup, losing 3-1 to Holmesdale.

Though the side has endured patchy form in cup competitions, their league performance over the past few weeks has shown promising signs.

According to Bourne, they put in a creditable effort but had once again been affected by several of their players being unavailable.

Bourne said: “It was one of those games where there could have been a lot of goals, so it was a good one for the spectators, but we didn’t get the result we had hoped for.

“The team played with a lot of spirit, though we were without a couple of the squad including Luke Hackett, which meant I put myself on the bench and ended up getting some game time.

“We are back to focusing on the league now and we are playing Lordswood next, which will be a good game in which we’ll be aiming for three valuable points there.”
