Hakan Hayrettin couldn’t believe the atmosphere in Maidstone’s Kent Senior Cup semi-final victory over Gillingham, Kent Online report.

United beat their old rivals for the second season running, winning 4-2 on penalties after a 2-2 draw, to set up a final at Bromley.

The tie attracted a crowd of just under 1,400 but it felt like a lot more with both sets of fans going for it in the Genco Stand.

Stones head coach Hayrettin said: “A Kent derby’s a new experience for me but I’m just so pleased. The support was amazing.

“It’s like being in a hostile game in Turkey with 30,000 people. It’s amazing.

“The noise they make, the support they give this team, I just can’t believe how good it is. It’s unbelievable. I’m so glad I’m here.”
