Raiders at Wembley

Wembley and wins for the Raiders

What a weekend it has been for Maidstone United Raiders.

On Saturday, the under 16s were guests of the Football Association for the Emirates FA Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester.

At half time, George Tupper was presented with an FA People’s Cup trophy in front of more than 87,000 spectators, after his side won the youth disability final at St George’s Park the previous month.

The following day, George and his teammates added to their silverware – winning the Kent Reliance Disability Youth Cup.

And that wasn’t all. The under 11s, 12s, 13s and two 16s sides were also confirmed as Kent Disability League champions.

Head of disability football Lorraine Humm said: “Memories from this weekend will stay with me forever.

“I feel an immense sense of pride at everything the Raiders have achieved this season and there’s more to come with the final games in the adult disability league next weekend.

“It’s a cliché to say but it’s been a real team effort. From the players, coaches, volunteers – everyone has played their part.”

It wasn’t just the players picking up awards at the weekend. Lorraine was presented with a #KentFAThanksU certificate for her work and support of disability football in the county.
