EBBSFLEET U9 Reds were crowned double champions last weekend when they won the Bexley Cup with an emphatic 6-0 victory over Darenth Cougars FC, writes Lisa Payne.

A superb team performance led to goals from Luke Carey, James Miles, Jack Fenton (2) and Aidan Hoadley (2) with assists from Zachary Garratt.

Ebbsfleet's defensive trio of Henry Rowland, Daniel Birch and Jack Manktelow - together with excellent goalkeeping from Kieron Hunt-Barham, who made three great saves - proved too much for the Cougars to deal with.

THE U10 Reds also claimed the Bexley Cup with a 4-1 win over Blackheath Wanderers. Captain Luke Walker scored all four goals in a great all-round effort.

EBBSFLEET U11s took the Bexley League Ann Perks Memorial Cup final in style.

Strikes from Benjamen Fenton, Mitchell Liddle, George Jordan, Sam Stewart, Ben Francis and Joe Harpley fired them to a 6-3 success.

THE U13s put on an impressive showing to beat Chatham Town 8-2. Their first goal came a few minutes into the game when a Bradley Setters corner found George Goodwin in the box.

Jack Easter set up Will Sims for the second and James West showed some great skill to control the ball and shoot from 20 yards to make it three.

Chatham struck back after the Fleet failed to clear from a corner, but further efforts from Goodwin, Sims (2), Billy Palmer and Daniel Carrington rounded off a fine display.
