After an enthralling 2021-22 season, Kent Tigers are all set to get going with their season as the next Medway cup fixture is scheduled against Maidstone Warriors on 8th November 2022. With the next game just around the corner, we just can’t wait to get it all started again and genuinely appreciate the love, care, affection, support, and anticipation of our fans. While the preparations are in full swing and the team looks set to go all-guns-blazing, let’s take a moment to look back at some of our achievements, accomplishments, and moments of glory that have come along the way.
Here is a brief review of what we have achieved so far and what awaits us:
An Unbeaten Division 3 Season finishing in an Emphatic Title Win:
The first season for the Kent Tigers could not have been any better as the team played with power, conviction, confidence, and composure to make it a comprehensively dominating season for the team. The team remained unbeaten throughout the season as we finished as the deserving winners of Division 3 and earned ourselves a much-desired promotion to the higher tier.
The support that we received from our fans and supporters was simply brilliant. We cannot thank them enough for their love and affection. At the same time, we believe that this is just the beginning of a very special bond, as there is plenty more for us and our men to achieve at the highest level.
Winning the Medway Plate Cup:
The Men’s team had a remarkable first season as the senior team led by example to make it to the final of the Medway Plate Cup. Making the final itself was a matter of great honor, pride, and privilege for our young and newly established team.
We played the final on Saturday, 30th April 2022, against Iroquois Team. The final was played at the iconic Northfleet Technology College as fans poured in large numbers to back our boys.
Prior to the final, there were injury concerns and rotation requirements. But the manner in which our players and support staff conducted themselves was worth praising.
The team jelled well before the final and played like a unit in what turned out to be a one-sided final. We clinched the Medway Plate Cup with a comprehensive 93-41 win against Iroquois. The opposition simply had no answers to the questions posed by our potent attack and stable defense.
Evan Longman was the star of the match for us as he broke the opposition’s back with his convincing 24 points.
Youth Teams and Age group Level:
Our Youth Teams did not get as much game time as our senior side. However, they had a tiring but productive summer under the guidance of our coaches, trainers, conditioning staff, and Physios. The goal was to make them realize what it takes to get to the highest level. Preparing and grooming them to graduate to the top tier is something that we are and will continue working on. The future looks Bright!
Future Plans and Goals:
We aim to keep up the good work while starting and building on our projects like Street Games, School Collaborations, and Age Group Infrastructure. Developing the women’s side and providing them with the finest opportunities is also on top of our agenda. We are hopeful and pretty confident about taking the Sport to the Next Level.
