Champions Hollands & Blair completed their Kent Invicta League campaign with a 6-1 victory at Eltham Palace that saw them finish 14 points clear at the top. Rob Denness put Blair ahead after 10 minutes and Tom Michelson doubled the lead before the break. Substitute Stuart West hit a quickfire double to make it 4-0 before Craig Dwyer pulled one back. Michelson headed home his second of the game prior to James McDonald, another sub, completed the scoring.
Bearsted won 6-0 at Kent Football United and finished as runners-up because Lydd Town slipped to a 2-0 reverse at fifth-place Sheppey United to end up in third spot after two goals from Sam Hallett earned the Islanders the points. While at Glentworth Sports two goals from Peter Williams were added to by Ashley Russell, Jack West, Ryan Blake and an own goal as the Bears cruised home.
Three goals in four minutes late in the first-half helped Sutton Athletic finish fourth after a 3-1 triumph over Lewisham Borough. Danny Ball, Dan McCullock and Aiden Pursglove were all on target for the Sutts while Stephan Beckford grabbed the Boro consolation.
An 89th minute winner from Dan Parish, his second of the game, earned Seven Acre & Sidcup a sixth place finish thanks to a 2-1 win over Bridon Ropes who netted through George Maddocks.
Thanks only to Twitter I know that Glebe were 4-1 winners against Rusthall at Jockey Farm but no other details are known other than the three points saw Glebe end the season in seventh.
At Rede Court Road all three goals came in the opening 45 minutes as Gravesham Borough beat Orpington 2-1, George Snelling and Brad Killick netted for the home side while Robbie Hines replied for the O's.
Finally an 89th minute effort from Daniel Twin saw Meridian VP complete a 3-2 victory over Crockenhill up in SE7. Richard Whyte opened the scoring for the home side after 15 minutes and Dean Whittingham increased the lead just after the hour but then Craig Hewett netted twice in two minutes to level matters before Twin struck.

A project by The FA National Game Youth Council
We’re collecting good luck messages from 5-24 years olds from across the country and presenting them to the England Women’s football team on a giant St. George’s flag shortly before they leave for
Canada to participate in the FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup.
Who are we?
The FA National Game Youth Council is a group of talented and passionate young people who aim to provide a voice for all children and young people within football. Reporting directly into the Football Development Committee, we are able to influence change and develop a lasting legacy within the game.
What is Good Luck from Young People?
After running a successful project delivering hundreds of good luck messages to the England senior men’s team before the FIFA 2014 World Cup, we are excited to give young people the opportunity to wish our Lionesses good luck in Canada!
Young people aged between 5-24, can submit short messages either on twitter by using the hashtag #GLFYP or by using the following link:
These messages will be collated and printed onto a huge St. George’s flag and presented to the team just before they leave for the World Cup.
Young people will be able to submit messages between 30th March 2015 and 17th April 2015. We will also be giving away some amazing prizes from The FA throughout this period to young people that submit a message.
