Ramsgate U14s finished their season on a high by winning the Kent Football United 11-a-side tournament in Rochester on Sunday.
The line up included teams from Medway and North Kent, such as Long Lane and Ebbsfleet, who, respectively, finished third in the Kent Youth League North and Kent Youth League Central.
It was great to see all the boys hard work rewarded with a tournament win and a fitting end to their season as U14s.
Apart from a little blip in their second group game, which they drew, they played really well throughout, finishing unbeaten, with 3 wins and a draw, and topping their group.
Goals came from Tyler Gray, Charlie Meade, Alfie Pennie, Rafe Walters and Adam Miles.
The semi-final was a lot tougher, with the boys suddenly finding themselves 2-0 down, after a wonder strike and then Brady Smith cleared a goal bound attempt off the line, only to see an attacker respond quickest and slot the ball home.
A cross from Charlie Meade then ended up in the top corner and it was game on.  It was quickly followed by a side foot volley by Brady Smith, from a long way outside the penalty box, which bounced into the corner of the net.
Any thought of reaching the final on penalties was soon forgotten, when Harry Evans beat the 'keeper to the ball, rounded him and crossed for Charlie Meade to nudge it home.  Meade then lobbed the 'keeper and Dane Broughton followed up to tap it home, sealing an emphatic 4-2 win.
The boys then faced the tournament favourites, Ebbsfleet, who had won all of their games on the way to the final, which was their third of the summer.
The boys started the final the way they finished the semi-final and imposed their game on Ebbsfleet, with Charlie Meade's pace and Dane Broughton's strength causing their back-four problems.  Chasing a through ball, Meade was brought down in the box, by a combination of the 'keeper and centre-half.  He was quickly up to slot the penalty in the bottom corner.
With Jude Bailey man-marking Ebbsfleet's play-maker, they lacked attacking ideas and the back-four dealt with those that they did create.
Another Ramsgate attack saw Meade brought down on the edge of the 'box and, from the resultant free-kick, Callum Wilshaw curled a fantastic shot into the opposite top corner.
The boys then saw out the remaining minute to finish well-deserved winners.
A good squad, all working and fighting for each other, is vital, if you want to achieve things and to win tournaments, cups and titles.  Every player in the squad was fantastic and contributed to the win.'
