Leafe Can Mount Title Challenge
Steve Griffin

.....competitive enough team to mount a title challenge in the Kent Hurlimann League.

Leafe beat Greenwich Borough last Saturday, thanks to a Mel McCann own goal and a strike by Jerson Dos Santos, with the victory moving Griffin's team up to fifth in the Premier Division. ​ "We think moving up to third would be realistic but beyond that the Erith teams are very good," the manager said. "It is always the aim at the start of the season to win the league and hopefully with the team we have now we can mount a challenge.

"A week before the season started we had nearly the whole of our Ryman League side intact but it got decimated. Without a reserve team we have been doing our pre-season in competitive games but now we have a nice squad with a good balance of players.

"Now my selection problems are good selection problems -– there are people on the bench who deserve to be starting games."

Whyteleafe are now finding their feet in the Kent League after a shaky start to the season, and Griffin acknowledges they had to adapt after relegation from the Ryman League.

"The Ryman League is definitely a lot quicker, adapting has been tough for everyone," the manager said. "I think Kent players are a lot bigger and more physical, and that goes for Folkestone Invicta and Maidstone United as well.

"I didn't think we would drop down and then smash this league and go straight back up. I never thought it would be easy."

A minute's silence will be held before Whyteleafe's home game on Saturday against Corinthian in the memory of `Leafe stalwart supporter and volunteer Allen Kelly, who died suddenly on Monday night.
