Maidstone United Manager George Elokobi said:

“Thank you to The Mayor for inviting us here today.

“I am unbelievably proud of my players and management team – they thoroughly deserve this recognition. This squad of players continues to make history and they deserve all the attention and appreciation that’s come their way.
