Crowborough 1 First Team 2

Saturday, May 5, 2018

Micky Collins’ Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division winning squad maybe looking forward to a break but he says the job of preparing for life in the Bostik League is already underway.

 

Mark Jones scored twice as Oaks signed off with a 2-1 win at third placed rivals Crowborough on Thursday night to complete another memorable campaign - 93 goals, 88 points - and a goal difference of plus 60.

 

He said: “The players will go away but my job is just beginning. I have served my apprenticeship in this league, winning it twice - and managed in it for seven years - now I am looking forward to new challenges and new scenarios."

 

“We are not going into the Bostik League to be also-rans, we have got targets - and you know what we might just surprise a few people.”

 

The twice postponed game left Collins short numbered with only 13 players available, including two subs.

 

Crowborough’s players formed a guard of honour to welcome the champions onto the pitch. Jones put Oaks ahead four minutes before half time, before doubling the lead 10 minutes before half-time, a goal made by substitute Freddie Horlock’s run and cross. The youngster, a member of the club’s U18's Kent Youth League championship winning squad made a good impression having replaced Kenny Pogue five minutes earlier.

 

The U18's manager Darren Mace said: "Congratulations to Freddie - great achievement for a lad who’s worked tirelessly in the years I’ve known him. Well done.”

 

Former Tunbridge Wells defender Jason Barton pulled one back in stoppage-time. Oaks finish sIx points ahead of Whitstable, who rounded off their season with a 2-1 win at Lordswood on Monday.
