12/7/2015: Folkestone Tournament

A very busy tournament with 6 teams from Kent taking part.  This meant playing 5 games in quick succession – all on unforgiving tarmac (particularly hard for the majority of the teams used to playing on Astroturf).  Note for the future: 5 games is too much and tarmac is to be avoided!!

Strollers B Team was somewhat depleted, particularly as players started to pick up injuries during the course of the day.  Overall, they gave a pretty good account of themselves, holding both Medway Marauders and Canterbury WFC to a draw (although the Canterbury game was eventually lost on penalties).

The A Team, however, had a field day, winning four and drawing one of their five games, with 11 goals scored and only one conceded all afternoon.  They deservedly finished as tournament winners.
