Welcome to new faces

New signings slideshow
We extend a warm welcome to three new signings who have joined Martyn Dalby and the Under 16s. All three are training with the club and James is also now old enough to come straight into the senior reckoning for this coming weekend.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Training for the Under 16s is Mondays 6-7pm and Tuesdays (with the seniors) 7-8pm both evenings at the North School. Arrangements alter at half-term and details will be posted on this website.

Saturday’s provisional squad
The lads, in terrific cup form last week, make the short journey to the Reynolds Playing Field to face Smeeth with a 2.15pm kick off. Meet at the club at 1pm sharp please. Provisional squad: Tom Moon; Josh Ahmad, Nathan Stevens, Martyn Dalby, Sokol Kristollari, James Vidler, Mike Gardiner, Aaron Negus, Cameron Lumsden, Ryan Ford, Jordan Griffin, Joe Plumridge, Ryan Prior, Sam Sowdon, Marcus Dalby.

Sunday’s provisional squad
The side must pick itself up from last week’s debacle when some lacked the will to compete and those who let their team mates down by failing to turn up, without the even the courtesy of a text, will not be considered for the home fixture with Marsh Athletic Reserves. Kick off is at 10.30am with a meeting time at the club of 9am. Provisional squad: Mark Whipps; Callum Monaghan, Martyn Dalby, James Vidler, Josh Ahmad, Terry Perk, Kieran Shrimpton, Kurtis Hooper, Matt Wedge, Cameron Lumsden, Harry Mansfield, Ryan Ford, Jordon Griffin, Ryan Prior, Tom Moon, Marcus Dalby.

Kent County League
The withdrawal from the Kent County League, of which Bromley Green were founder members, was painful but there was no choice with the reason once again players not being fully committed. Gary and Lee were let down every week and struggled to field a side capable of competing … and there comes a time when a re-think is needed. Stan has liaised with the KCL and when the time is right we will be looking for a return. Gary and Lee are joining forces with Martyn and we hope the players enjoy the remainder of the season in the local league while a rebuilding process takes place.

Belgium tournament invite

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

More details are arriving re the trip to Belgium in early August and we have been offered the fantastic hotel used last time at an incredible rate per person. I will be calling a meeting shortly to discuss the details but basically we can send a 14/15 year old team and a 16/17 year old team [this season’s age groups]. So, those players that want to experience a great trip, plus loads of football, make the noises now. Not all parents have to accompany if there is a financial concern so please start the discussion now. Under 16s, we will meet with Martyn and parents soon … the loyal lads from last season’s U16s please give it some thought as you are still eligible. More details to follow on the Youth Football/Under 16s 2014-2015 tab.

Sunday update: BG Girls win again/Under 15s slam ten in Thanet/Seniors walloped

BG Girls maintain winning run

Despite having the bare 9 players due to injuries and other commitments, the BG Girls won again at Waterside today, 4-1 against Meridian. A run of four home games on the trot will hopefully see us pushing for the double. Report to follow on the BG Girls page.

Seniors get a tonking … blame those who just can’t be arsed!
The first thing to say about the thrashing at the North School by Willesborough is that the real blame should be attributed to those who failed to turn up. What is up with people these days … not even a text or phone call from some … selfish, with no consideration for their team mates. Much could be said here, but perhaps behind closed doors is better! Need now is to re-group and prepare for next Sunday’s visit of Marsh Athletic.
