For Sparta!!

It was an eventful week for my football team - The mighty 'Gravesend Spartans'.
Sunday we had a double header (two games) against New ash Green. We needed to win both games to win the league and be promoted to the North Kent Sunday Premier. A draw in either would put us in 3rd place and mean we have to stay in division 1 for another year.
We faught valiantly and won both games 6-0! Premier here we come.

Then on tuesday was the Reporter Cup final against Kent cup champions and something like 35 times North Kent premier champions 'Sun'.
The venue was Dartford F.C's stadium Prince's Park.
We had a good turn out of fans, must have been at least 200 in the stands - including our mascot.

We came to the game as the under-dogs but we put up a fight.
The game was 1-1 at full time so we went into extra time where the Spartans took the lead and made it 2-1. Then Sun broke our hearts with a last minuite goal, the game went to penaltys.
I decided to step up and take one, my calfs were cramping on the run up, the flood lights were blinding me and there was the huge pressure from the crowd behind the goal but i managed to slot it bottom right corner. Booyah!
Sadly we lost 5-4 on penaltys. we were gutted.
We will have our revenge next year.
