Folkestone Invicta were beaten 5-0 at home to National League side Maidstone United in Monday night’s pre-season friendly at The Fullicks Stadium.

Invicta had held Jay Saunders’ side to a goalless draw in the Kent Reliance Senior Cup Final at The Gallagher Stadium 11 years ago before losing on a penalty shoot out.  But Maidstone here demonstrated a far more clinical nature in front of goal.

Invicta had drawn 1-1 in the sun in their opening friendly of the summer against Gillingham on Saturday lunchtime and had new signing Jack Evans making his first appearance against one of his former clubs since his summer move from Margate.

The Folkestone club’s other new signing Alfie Paxman made his first start having come on as a substitute on Saturday, whilst Sam Hasler and Matt Newman were also back in the home squad, but Johan Ter Horst had to sit it out against his former club with a knee injury.

Maidstone has signed striker Joe QUIGLEY from Bournemouth earlier in the day and it was the Republic of Ireland Under 21 international who opened the scoring in the fifth minute when he played a one-two with Andre Coker and calmly slotted a low shot into the net.

At the other end, Hasler hit an 11th minute 35-yard free kick on target but Maidstone goalkeeper Lee Worgan got behind it to make a comfortable save.

Ronnie Dolan then found Ian Draycott on the right hand side a minute later whose ball across goal reached Paxman at the far post but the diminutive winger couldn’t quite get over it and headed over the crossbar.

It was Dolan who played a 33rd minute ball to Draycott who released Paxman and the latter got his shot on target but it lacked sufficient power to beat Worgan.

A Draycott piledriver then struck defender Will De Havilland a minute later when Dolan played the ball up to striker Jerson Dos Santos.

Invicta were soon to lose Hasler to injury as player-coach Micheal Everitt replaced him.

The home side went forward again in the 36th minute when Paxman found Draycott but De Havilland intercepted the latter’s through ball before it could reach Dos Santos.

A well-struck Evans shot from outside the penalty area then took a deflection two minutes later but Worgan got behind it again.

Captain Seth Nana Twumasi on the right played the ball across to George McLennan on the left who cut inside and found Jamar Loza on the right hand side of the penalty area whose 39th minute shot was blocked by Invicta defender Nat Blanks for a corner.

Maidstone increased their lead in the 43rd minute when Blair TURGOTT slotted the ball into the net from the right hand side of the penalty area after combining well with Loza in a move started by Twumasi.

As with Gillingham on Saturday, Maidstone had a ‘first half’ side and a ‘second half’ line up, while Invicta replaced Evans and captain Callum Davies with Ade Yusuff and Newman at the interval.

It was 3-0 to Maidstone in the 48th minute as the ball was played through towards Jamie Philpott and went past goalkeeper Tim Roberts who had come out and Jack PAXMAN hit a great finish into the empty net from a tight angle on the right hand side.

Strikers Yusuff and Dos Santos worked the ball across to Draycott in the 51st minute but the latter’s shot at Worgan lacked power.

Paxman then played the ball up to Yusuff two minutes later who cut inside and hit a low shot that again did not have enough on it to trouble Worgan unduly.

For Maidstone, David Ajiboye hit a 59th minute shot at Roberts from the right hand side.

Dos Santos hit a god 61st minute shot on the turn from the edge of the box but Worgan again saved comfortably and Yusuff then rounded off a good Invicta move two minutes later with a shot that deflected for a corner.

Philpott then hit a 65th minute shot from the left hand edge of the penalty area narrowly wide of the far post.

Invicta brought Phil Starkey on for Josh Vincent and the former was soon involved in the action as he blocked Stuart Lewis’ 69th minute shot inside the penalty area after the Maidstone captain had combined with Ajiboye.

The Folkestone side was close in the 71st minute when Yusuff headed the ball on for Draycott whose header was parried away by goalkeeper Worgan and Draycott then couldn’t quite turn the rebound in from close to the line.

It was 4-0 in the 82nd minute courtesy of a good strike from AJIBOYE from the left hand side across goal and into the far corner of the net.

An 86th minute Philpott shot flashed past the post from the edge of the box and Jack Richards took the ball on down the left hand side and hit a low shot at Roberts a minute later.

Substitute Maidstone goalkeeper Ethan Collen saved a Paxman shot from the left hand side.

But Maidstone completed the scoring in the 9th minute when a good move down the left hand side was rounded off by LEWIS who showed skill inside the penalty area.
