Two local football teams battled it out for the Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield supported by Kent Air Ambulance.

The match between Greenways and Milton & Fulston United ended in a 3-2 win for Northfleet-based Greenways at Sittingbourne FC’s ground.

Man of the match Aaron Klemon scored two of Greenways’ goals before Brad Cross sealed the win in the 89th minute.

Greenways last won the shield 26 years ago when they beat VCD Athletic 4-0 and this was the first year Milton & Fulston had reached the final since the amalgamation of the clubs in 2008.

Jill Playle of Kent Air Ambulance presented the shield to Rob Jeffrey, the winning team’s captain, following the match on Saturday (April 6th).

She said: “We are very grateful for the support of the Kent County Football Association who like the Air Ambulance is supported by the community.”

Kent FA has 4,500 teams and runs 20 County Cup competitions across the county. 

Paul Dolan, Chief Executive of Kent FA said: “The Intermediate Challenge Shield is one of our most prestigious Cup competitions and we’re happy to use it to support the life-saving work of Kent Air Ambulance.”

“Our thanks also go to all the clubs who took part in the competition whose fans raised money for the Kent Air Ambulance at their Intermediate Challenge Shield matches.”
