New U12s manager: “The lads attitude was outstanding”
Newly installed team manager John Collen was delighted with the application of the U12s at the South Ashford tournament: “A great effort by all the lads on Sunday, we did not win a game, but the lads attitude was outstanding.
We were in a very hard group and only lost by one or two goals, which I think is a great start. I have high hopes for these boys and hope they stick with Bromley Green for next season.”
This Sunday the boys are in the Hawkinge Youth tournament with their first game kicking off at 10am.
Ashford & District Sunday League summary

Chris Commerford in action this morning against the Dockers
Shqipron in action – but it was a 4-1 defeat
In the First Division, Shadoxhurst ended with a 4-1 win at Waterside against Bromley Green Reserves who face the prospect of relegation less than twelve months after winning the title! The Green led with a super header from Reece Hagger [not an own goal as widely reported] who was on the end of a Jamie Hurst free kick. A great save from keeper Wilson Guest kept the home team in front but an all-too-typical second half collapse followed with Carlum Macleod (2), Mitchell Punt and Luke Chinnery making the most of poor marking.
Meanwhile at Cornes Meadow a single goal from Danny Jennings proved sufficient for Troggs to beat Newchurch 1-0.
Iden Green completed their successful season with a 5-1 home win over Wye by virtue of scores from Andy Crouch, Francis Walker, Barney Osbourne, Jay Coulton and Ben Charlton. Wye answered through Jack Phillips. Relegated Ashford Cavaliers lost 7-3 away to Grasshoppers who scored through Martin Button (2), Kevin Bennett, Shannon Hodson, Ryan Easter, veteran Craig Avery and a deflected Mark Wood-Brignall drive. Jack Acott (2) and Chris Wilkins netted for Cavaliers.
Sandgate AFC finished runners up in Division Three after champions Wye Reserves beat their nearest rivals Brabourne 6-3 with goals by Sean Tong (2), Richard Coombes (2), Frank Thompson and James Bartholomew. Lee Cannon, Craig Lang and an own goal accounted for the Brabourne three. Sandgate themselves went down 2-1 away to Charing Reserves, Sean Louth and Dave O’Leary put Charing 2-0 up at the break, with John Driscoll pulling one back for Sandgate from the spot in the second half. Fox Sunday suffered a 4-3 defeat at home against Givaudan who netted through Ricky Harden (3) and Lewis Newcombe. On the mark for Fox were Mike Aglony (2) and Fred King.
