The History Makers!

Sevenoaks Town Football Club and Sevenoaks Suns both made history on Saturday as they secured their respective league titles for the first time in their clubs history.

That winning moment!

On Saturday afternoon Sevenoaks Town travelled up the M25 to play Erith Town in their penultimate fixture, knowing that a win would all but secure the Southern Counties East Football League title.

In a tense battle, Oaks were rewarded with their defensive play, finally winning the match 2-1 thanks to goals from Frankie Sawyer and Kenny Pogue. And whilst second-placed Whitstable Town were unable to get a result on the road at Cray Valley, it meant that Sevenoaks were finally crowned League Champions.

Likewise, Sevenoaks Suns knew that a win on the road at Manchester Mystics on Saturday night would also give them a well deserved league title.

Their team defence proved priceless as they shut down Manchester Mystics 44-57, with standout performances from Ta’Yani Clark who fired 16 smarts and team captain Cat Carr, who only missed out on a triple-double by a solitary assist.

The Leicester Riders, their nearest rivals, were unable to better the Suns record, so coach Len Busch was able to celebrate by lifting the Suns first WBBL Championship.

Congratulations to both clubs, you have one Sevenoaks proud and we applaud you for all your achievements.
