Friday with Key Auto Trade

All eyes on the weather
Tomorrow’s Smeeth v Bromley Green game will hopefully be switched to Waterside as it becomes one of twelve scheduled home fixtures subject to an early Saturday morning ground inspection.

We wish all the best to young keeper Ethan Collen who has signed for Folkestone Invicta

More news and the weekend fixtures later …

[updated] Welcome to new faces

* Well done to the Gills who put up a great show at Bristol City tonight. They may have gone out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy 5-3 on aggregate but they did the county proud. Let’s hope they can carry this form into the remainder of their league campaign.

* Also, a splendid show by those training tonight at Waterside in atrocious weather … plus a well-deserved mention for our young coaches Tom Messenger and Louis Burton who are teaching the tiny ones that the show goes on despite the cold and hail!

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.

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 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.
