Rye Town FC are going from strength to strength at the moment. Since their move to the Rugby Club ground, the football team have played three won three, which has seen them scoring 10 goals to boot!
The football club also celebrated, this week, the coming of age of Billy Kirkham who turned 16 on October 11. Billy has been training with Rye Town FC for the last couple of seasons and can now sign on to play for the team.
The latest victims on Saturday October 13 were St Leonards Social. After Rye’s two slow starts in the previous two home games, Tom Barlow got Town off to a flyer in the 10th minute. St Leonards responded and equalised in the 39th minute which lead the two teams in at level pegging’s at the half time break.
With only six minutes played after the interval Tom Barlow struck his second of the game to put Town into the lead, there was no stopping them now and they ran away with the match with further goals from Charlie Stevens and Rob Levett in the 73rd and 78th minutes respectively. The final score of 4-1 saw Rye into the next round of the Robertsbridge Intermediate Cup.
