Despite waiting to see if we could get the U18s match with Faversham Town on at Waterside, in the end the overnight rain had the final say with the adult pitches simply too wet.

BG Valiants travelled to a very windy Faversham for the adult tournament … read Pat’s summing-up on the Match Reports 2015-16 page.

Great day with all junior sides in action sponsored by Key Auto Trade

keyautotrade new logoWith no senior football today [Park Farm could not raise a side for the local cup tie] the focus is firmly on our youth teams. And what an enjoyable morning it was with all of our teams having some action after last weekend’s washout.

Charter standard club and mcdonaldsTop entertainment was provided by the Green U10s and our visitors Ashford Courtside Tornadoes; with both outfits deserving praise for their efforts and sporting approach. Brilliant double by Player of the Match Joe Clark. Manager Sid Hone was delighted and enthused: “The whole squad were brilliant today and can’t wait for the next match”.

The U10s [minus Aidan unwell and Yadgur who arrived late]. Well played everyone!

Stunning goal by our U9s Player of the Match Henry
The Under 9s, sponsored by Key Auto Trade, hosted Wye and all respect to the visitors who showed much improvement from previous meetings. 5-0 to the Green [report can be read on the Match Reports 2015-16 page]. Player of the match went to Henry for his bravery and a stunning 20 yard goal. Big well done to the whole team!
Zarah 3A fantastic goal by Igor Blejwas wasn’t quite enough for the Under 11s who suffered a narrow defeat against Grasshoppers at the Marsh Academy. Green Player of the Match was awarded to livewire Elliott Grace. (Photos and report when they arrive).

brailsfordroweThe Under 12s never recovered from conceding an early goal and finished on the end of a 10-1 scoreline. Callum Keogh, who grabbed our consolation score, was awarded the Player of the Match accolade.

Well done Callum!

U14 Colts really should have taken something from this game
