Under 16s make it a Good Friday with local derby victory

13.4.2014 U16s home Ramsgate[3] Anthony GlynnThe season may have not turned out quite as planned in the East Kent Youth League for the Green Under 16s but most of the squad have stuck with it and their reward this morning was a 5-1 win over neighbours Great Chart. On target were Lewis (2), Rick (2) and Anthony [pictured]. Next Sunday sees a trip to face Sittingbourne Lions.

With just a handful of matches remaining, most of the lads are looking forward to having a crack at Under 18s and/or senior football with the Green next season.

The first training session with Steve Rollings for those interested in the Under 18s is on Tuesday 6 May starting promptly at 7pm [please arrive 6.45pm].

Message from Stan
We are urgently in need of a Youth Teams Fixture Secretary, as Karen Greenfield is relinquishing the post for Family reasons. I would like to thank Karen for all of her hard work in the years she has been doing this.
This position is best suited to someone who cares about the club and is prepared to spend around 1 hour at most each week confirming our games with the opponents and referees. It is important that our youth teams have someone who is prepared to help out and save a lot of problems, as the alternative will be that each team takes responsibility for their own games. This will cause total confusion as we have limited pitches and coordination is needed in giving them all the right kick off times. I am sure that someone who cares would be willing to take this post on. I myself deal with the Senior sides and I sincerely hope that one of you would be willing to help with our Junior sides. I would welcome hearing from any of you in confidence. Please help your club out.

Wednesday night with John Page Trailers: Thirds settle for a draw/All of tonight’s results/Respect Award for Green U12 Colts

Green youngsters growing up!

CB Removals LorryA thoroughly entertaining game at Swan Lane, Sellindge,  tonight saw the Saturday Thirds draw 2-2 with The Woolpack. The Green took the lead in the first half with Gary Penfold Junior slotting home and when Ryan Prior forced in a second with 15 minutes to go an away victory looked on the cards. But the pub side, spurred on by former Green men Matt Hadlum and Chris Howells, came back to reduce the deficit and were then awarded a penalty for hands against Martyn Dalby … who claims the ball was well over the by-line. Anyway, spot kick converted and it is all square at 2-2; but lots of positives for Gary and Lee as the youngsters refused to be out-muscled by their more experienced opponents. Full match report from the manager at the Match Reports 2013-14 tab to follow.

Wednesday with United Taxis: Tonight’s fixtures/Last night’s results

I have just heard that Peter Intrieri’s wife, Carolyn, sadly passed away recently and was cremated this morning. Our sincere condolences to Peter and family.

Dalby thrilled with Green boys in local derby win
Martyn Dalby 12 March 2011Manager Martyn Dalby was delighted with the Saturday Reserves who picked up a rare three points in the Kent County League.
A sporting Reserves local derby at Waterside on Tuesday night with Kennington ended 3-1 in the Green’s favour and it was good to see old friends Richie Moore, Marc Collins and Darren Brown enjoying their night out. Kennington led for a long spell through former Green favourite Brown but home youth products Shrimpton, Gower and Wakam had the final word. For the manager’s summary, please go to the Match Reports 2013-2014 tab.

Statement from Paul Grindley

Following weeks of speculation, Paul Grindley has issued a statement clarifying his and Metro FC’s future. There has been no pressure put on Mr Grindley, who will work with both Saturday and Sunday managers to continue the rebuild with predominantly youngsters, and we welcome him aboard.

“I would just like to confirm that Metro FC will no longer run after the 2013/2014 season as I wish to commit myself to the Green. I hope this quashes any rumours that we will carry on as that is not going to happen. I want a bigger challenge and at Bromley Green I can see it through. Thanks to everyone for your support and putting faith in me.”

Action from the recent Green Thirds v Metro cup tie at Homelands

Where did that weekend go?

The usual highs and lows over the weekend, with the Saturday Firsts once again not getting any luck as they ended up 2-0 losers to Fleetdown United at Homelands. We normally refrain from criticising officials but the ineptitude of two of the three in charge was quite frankly embarrassing and not good use of our hard-earned money. Manager’s report to follow.

No excuses from the Saturday Reserves who admitted leaders Hawkinge were far too good on the day. Martyn Dalby felt the Green boys did well for a large part of the match but some quality football led to a final scoreline of 7-0.

The Thirds, meanwhile, were given a good run for their money at Lydd Thirds but came home 4-1 victors thanks to goals from young Gary Penfold (3) and evergreen Lee McRobert. Report can be seen by going to the Match Reports tab.

The U9s enjoyed a friendly at Wye, winning 1-0 with a late goal from Jamie. No report received as yet. In the other youth games played, the U11s and U13s both performed below par.

Sunday morning brought better news with the BG Girls winning 9-0 at Ebbsfleet and the BG Valiants Adults losing only one of their five games at The Gallagher.
