DISABILITY TEAM WIN LEAGUE TITLE

By Brian Flynn

FAVERSHAM Town’s disability team are celebrating after clinching their first league title in just their third season together.

“It's been a real squad effort.” Tim Force, Disability Team Manager

The Lilywhites went into the final tournament of the season with a two-point advantage over rivals South East Gulls in Championship Two of the Kent Disability League.

It is the team’s first league silverware since forming in 2016.

Proud manager Tim Force said: “It has been a real squad effort.

"Even though there was players that didn't play on the day every player in the squad played there part to make it possible.

“The dedication, commitment and togetherness of players made it possible to win the title. Teams have described us as deadly and struggle to cope with our pace. The football played at times was breathtaking.”

In the final tournament of the season, Town broke down first opponents Canterbury City by pressing high, and kept possession well before breaking through with two well-taken goals by Josh Force and a third from Steven Stow to win 3-0.

A goal each from the same players then ensured 2-0 wins over both Maidstone United Silver and Swanscombe.

That left Town needing just a point from their final match against South East Gulls to clinch the title.

Despite having much of the possession in their opponents’ half, they were unable to break through – but a clean sheet meant they got the point needed to take the title.

They won the silverware by collecting the most points overall in the tournaments throughout the season.

The title-winning squad was Josh Force, Steven Stow, Liam Sanderson, Tiffany Walsh, Ibrahim Nabil, Declan Martin, Jaire Russell, Alex Cameron, Chris Cameron, Steven Stokes and Gavin Holtrum.
