John Wesley School were beaten by a clearly very experienced Kingsnorth team in the first football fixture of the new school year.

William and Lily were new to the team and put in resolute performances, but could not stop a Kingsnorth side used to playing together and playing on a regular basis.

There were many positives to take from the loss, as some great individual performances were overshadowed by a rampant Kingsnorth side in the first half.

As the second half kicked off, John Wesley began to take the game to Kingsnorth, putting in a string of tough and fair challenges, and beginning to make their way into the opponent’s half, although mistakes proved costly as Kingsnorth capitalised on many of the chances given to them.
