Maidstone United under 16s clinched the Kent Youth League Central championship today to complete a league and cup double.
The title went down to the final day of the season with the Stones and second place Wadhurst vying for the trophy. Two points separated the sides going into this morning’s fixtures but a 3-1 win over Sevenoaks made sure it was Maidstone celebrating on the final whistle.
Stones goals came courtesy of James Jeffrey and Johnny Phillips (2). One of Phillips’ efforts – a spectacular volley from the edge of the box – was a highlight of an entertaining finale.
