    THE Tunbridge Wells men’s first team fell to a defeat on their travels against a tough Folkestone outfit.

    Starting promisingly, the visitors created multiple chances and gained several penalty corners, which unfortunately they couldn’t convert.

    An end-to-end first half at Three Hill Sports Park saw a number of circle penetrations at both ends, which all proved to be fruitless. The sides went in at the break scoreless.

    The second half was to prove a very similar story with Tunbridge Wells piling on a lot of pressure that did not deter the Folkestone defence from their strong performance.

    Wells kept creating chances and corners but ultimately could not follow through, which cost them dearly, as Folkestone scored the winner on the breakaway.

    It was a solid Tunbridge Wells performance but the team were left with nothing to show for it.
