Football: Rusthall win Tunbridge Wells Charity Cup again
9th May 2019
Rusthall Reserves 3 Southborough 0
RUSTHALL repeated their Tunbridge Wells Charity Cup final success with a second victory in a row over Southborough at the Culverden Stadium.
On a chilly and wet Friday night more than 270 spectators came to the annual showpiece.
The competition is run by Rusthall’s vice-chairman Dave Rusbridge and raised over £2,500 for charity this year.
The Rustics were on top from the start and Adam James scored to put them in the lead after 28 minutes. A goal from Kane Ramsell made the score 2-0 at half-time.
The second half followed the same pattern and Franck Ndouga added another goal with a header after 66 minutes.
The Reserves had their promotion confirmed to Division One East of the Kent County League at the end of April.
The elevation in second place came after results elsewhere went in their favour, their own season having come to an end two weeks before.
It was their first season under manager Lee Chambers, who arrived last May after coaching at Tonbridge Invicta for 25 years.
The Reserves have another final to play tonight [Wednesday May 8] against Lydd Reserves in the Kent Intermediate Cup at K Sports ground.
The Rusthall Development team played Tonbridge Invicta in the Fisher Shield, with Invicta snatching victory 1-0 towards the end of extra time.
