Central Bohemia of the Czech Republic have advanced to the intermediate round of the UEFA Regions Cup after beating San Marino Amateur 3-0 to end their qualifying Group 4 campaign with a maximum nine points.
František Perman's 21st-minute penalty gave the Czech Republic side the lead. Perman's second goal of the game and third of the tournament arrived on the hour to make the game safe. Petr Nekolný scored for the third successive game on 62 minutes to complete a fine win. Central Bohemia will now face a two-legged intermediate round play-off against the winners of qualifying Group 2 for a place in the Regions Cup final tournament in June 2003. Meanwhile, the result means that San Marino ended their campaign third in the group.
Kent snatch second
In the day's other game English side Kent CL Amateur picked up their first points of the mini-tournament - and snatched second place into the bargain, after beating South Amateur of Estonia 4-1.
The Kent hero was Jamie Salvidge who hit a superb hat-trick. He was quick off the mark, scoring his first two goals within 14 minutes. He went close on several occasions to adding a third but it looked like it was not to be until the second minute of injury time when he finally found the target again - and in doing so also found himself top of the mini-tournament goalscoring charts with four.
In between Salvidge's early double and his last-gasp strike, Ryan Robinson also scored for Kent while Erki Müür scored a consolation for the Estonian team.
