Congratulations to the Cray Wanderers U15s who on Sunday became Kent Youth League North Division Champions for the second time in three seasons after a 6-0 home win against Junior Elite clinched the title by two points from Phoenix Sports on the final day. Anything other than a Cray Wanderers win would have given the title to Phoenix who had a one point lead and a slightly better goal difference.
Sean Foley and Lee Amis’s tremendously talented team had a very consistent campaign which saw out of 22 games played, 18 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats scoring 87 goals conceding 31 and finishing with 56 points.
This is how they did it:

Meanwhile the Cray Wanderers U18s wrapped up their Kent Youth League North campaign with a 1-4 defeat at home to in-form Greenwich Borough. Mike Bruno’s side though can be pleased with their season in a very tough league and finished in fifth place.
