Longfleet Youth FC hosted their annual Managers vs Coaches charity match on Sunday afternoon at Hurn Bridge's M.A Hart Stadium.

Highlights of this very well organised charity match are available in the posted video. Photographer Steve Harris, who is a good friend of SCJ, was present as well and you can see his photos by clicking here

The Coaches would be on top for the majority of this fixture and would take the lead after about 20 minutes, as a well hit effort from Daniel Wilson flew into the back of the net. 

The Managers were soon 2-0 down as Matt Chulk worked his way into range and fired a shot into the roof of their net. 

A third would follow before the break as Dave Kewley slotted the ball into the net although a good save from Steve Millington kept out Gavin McFarlane's attempt at a fourth. 

The collective knowledge of 17 managers at half time helped find them a way into the game, as captain Carl Bacciocchi lobbed event co-organiser Lee Westron. 

However, the coaches put the game to bed with 10 minutes to play as Chulk put away his second of the match, securing the shield for the third year in a row.
