Thank You Brendon
It is with regret that we bid a fond farewell to Brendon Cass, Brendon will go down in Hythe Town history as the man who finally fired us to Kent League Championship glory. Having signed at the start of the 2010/11 season, he went on to score 37 goals in 47 appearances that season, including being the player whose shot deflected off Tunbridge Wells keeper Michael Czanner to land us the Kent League title in the 89th minute of the final league game of that season.
Brendon had already scored two vital hat-tricks in the final five games of the championship run-in. One of which was completed in the 94th minute of a home game with Holmesdale that ended 3-2 after we had trailed 2-1 with twenty minutes of the game remaining. Crucial goals that if not scored would have handed Herne Bay the title that season.
Since our promotion to the Ryman South two years ago Brendon has played a massive part in us establishing ourselves as a Ryman League club, leaning on his experience with former clubs Tonbridge, Folkestone, Chatham and of course Dartford, where he won the Ryman South title and Golden Boot. Brendon finishes on 66 goals from 138 appearances in a Hythe shirt, good luck and thank you Brendon!
