Shane Hills was declared Man of the Match. Special mention to the Pack who were awesome all game especially at Scrum time and driving mauls. David Howland for countless number of carries and also Harley?? Wykes.

Maidstone played well in the short spells when they scored. The defence was lacking in the backs, which opened up wide holes for Folkestone to break through. After the hour mark the team fell apart and Folkestone dominated ball and territory.

Team: David Howland, Justin Lloyd-Cowden, Jamie Curtis; Keith Packham, James Collie??; Paul Bartlett, Joseph Himbury, Simon Himbury; Harley?? Wykes, Shane Hills; Jake?? Watson, Kyran Page, Thomas Nunn, Ross Clark, Jerome Kilbride.
