Sunday’s local round-up and results

So far this season, it has been decidedly dismal news on the Kent Sunday Cup front and sadly Stanhope Rangers continued the trend this morning, crashing out of the Junior Cup against Maidstone Leaguers Star United Reserves.  Luke Burdon and company held their own up to half time but were overrun in the second period, conceding five without reply.

In the topsy-turvy Premier Division, Market Hotel returned to winning ways with a 6-3 home win over Aldington thanks to scores by Tom Collins (2), Dan Cornell, Freddie Thompson, Steve Harris and Ryan Smith with the villagers goals coming from Shqipron Ahmetaj, Chris Howells and Kevin Ruane. Marsh Athletic and ten-man Brewmaster meanwhile shared the points from a 1-1 draw with Warren Smith and Matt Lightfood netting for their respective sides.

Levin Athletic always looked the more inventive side and recorded a 7-3 home win over Egerton in the First Division. Tom Morgan (3), Zack Jones (2), Lewis Rae and Connor Bourne were on target for Levin while Dan Hills hit all three for Egerton.

Goals by James Hamilton, Craig Sharp, Paul Vidler, Peter Russell and Antony Davies earned Red Heathens a 5-2 local derby success against Troggs at Charing Heath. Rob Giles was credited with both Torggs goals. The spoils and points and were shared at Hornash Lane as Shadoxhurst and Charing ended 5-5; possibly a fair outcome after end-to-end stuff and defensive mistakes in the wet conditions in both goalmouths. Carlum MacLeod (3) and Mitchell Punt (2) were once again the Dockers marksmen with Charing responding via Terry Kelly (2), Dan Peat, Richard Spicer and Gary Lowman.

A strong-looking Hamstreet Reserves won 5-0 against Sandgate at Pound Lees with Mark Wallis (2), Adam Mercer, Steve Rutland and Harry Godden on the scoresheet; while Troggs Reserves and Burton Grove played out a 2-2 draw. Andy Wells and Tommy Carlton notched for Troggs with Chris Lee and Mathew Johnson replying for Grove. Kennington and Albion also had to settle for a 2-2 draw; Josh Jones and Buster Beaney for Kennington and Paul Martin and Chris Barker for the pub side. Yet another 2-2 scoreline, this time between Locomotive and Wye; Luke Walder with both goals for the home side and Brad Godden and Richard Amos for the Monarchs. Grasshoppers won 5-3 at home against Brabourne through goals from Martin Button, Ryan Harradine, Ben Holding, Ricky Bingham and Paul Paddock. Darren Sutton (2) and Dave Ford from the spot answered for Brabourne.

Aldington Reserves won the only match in Division Three, defeating Park Farm 3-1 by virtue of scores from Craig Hume, Matt Beesley and Sam Darby.

A surprisingly large margin in the Division One Cup as Iden Park thrashed Beaver 8-0 with Nathan Jackson (4), Jack Bundock (2), Sam Ricketts and an unfortunate Inn defender making up the tally.

Prince Albert progressed into the last eight of the Third Division Cup after beating Stour Valley 4-0 with goals by Mike Ward (2), Luke Parsonage and player-manager Gary Boorman. Meanwhile, Mark Millen and Tomas Moore netted for Fox Sunday in their 2-0 win away to Charing Reserves. Mersham seconds are also through after seeing off Ashford Spartans 3-1 with goals by Colin Burnikell, Matt Adnam and Luke Adnam.

Fixtures not played due to the overnight rain: Newchurch v Ashford Dynamo, Bethersden v Bromley Green and Wye Reserves v Ashford Cavaliers. Despite these postponements there was no referee for the Givaudan v Pilgrims match which therefore also fell by the wayside.

Torrential overnight rain is not what we wanted to put it mildly! There will be a morning inspection at Waterside where the driveway and car park are in a real mess … not to mention the pitches.

TN_rainThe clubhouse will be open from 7.30am today for the BG Valiants U13s and U16s to meet-up and get changed ready for their tournament in Rainham [remember the coach departs 8.30am sharp].

The Sunday firsts meet in the clubhouse at 9am for the trip to reigning champions Bethersden while it is fingers crossed for the U16s home local derby with Kennington (kick off 2pm). Have an enjoyable day and good luck everyone!

Smashing morning of cup fun for local U7/U8/U9 teams

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Thankfully the rain kept away for this morning’s Ashford & District Youth Football League cup rounds for the local U7, U8 and U9 teams. Well done to all concerned and a special mention for Pat Penfold, who along with Karen, Alfie and Tom made sure the goals etc were all ready for our guests. Rewarding to see so many youngsters [and adults!] enjoying themselves and we can’t wait for round two next Saturday. Our slideshow gives a few long-range shots plus the Green U9s with Liam Walsh and Jamie Hurst.

Weather holds the key to weekend packed with action …

ADYFLAn early start at Waterside in the morning as we host the ADYFL U7/U8/U9 Cup matches [also next Saturday]. Callum will open up the clubhouse early and Pat Penfold will put up the goals etc but let’s have help from those able please to set everything up before our guests arrive. The pitches have been passed playable but much rain overnight and we could be in trouble. The main thing is for everyone to have an enjoyable morning … can we please give the usual pleas for parking carefully and considering our neighbours plus the old chestnut of not leaving litter on the field. Thanks.

The only home senior game of the weekend sees the firsts welcome Stansfeld in the Inter Regional Challenge Cup with the Reserves away to South Darenth and the Thirds travelling to Kent University to meet UK Staff in the Faversham Charity Cup. For all kick off times, please refer to the Fixtures tab.

On Sunday, the in-form firsts go down the A28 to meet champions Bethersden and Dave Andrews could have Glenn Mackett and fit-again Emmanuel Awuni added to his squad. See the slide-show below for images of last week’s game, including Peters and Hurst celebrating … but it’s not World Cup 1966! No fixture for the Reserves this Sabbath but the Under 16s welcome neighbours Kennington for a 2pm kick off.

Day of gloom in the Kent Sunday Cup 

Not a single winner today for those of our teams involved in the Kent Sunday Cup [although Beaver are through with Robin Hood dropping out] while in the top flight of the local league both Aldington and Bromley Green recorded home wins as they continue to set the pace.

Hamstreet went out of the Kent Sunday Premier Cup by virtue of a 4-1 home defeat by Artois with Elliott McNeill hitting the Street consolation; while in the Junior Cup Bromley Green Reserves conceded two in the last few minutes to go down 5-4 away to White Horse. Steve Wakam (2), Tommy Lockett and Marcin Kulpecsza netted for the Ashford side who played some enterprising football on a very narrow 3G pitch. Goals from Tom Bell and Sam Alloway proved to no avail for Newchurch who lost 7-2 to Royals while Levin Athletic were also well beaten, 4-0 by Faversham Strike Force. The misery continues in the Kent Junior Trophy with Luke Walder scoring a consolation for AFC Locomotive in their 2-1 home loss against Royal Oak and Craig Lewis doing likewise for Ashford Cavaliers who were on the end of a 5-1 defeat by Yalding at Goldwyn. Stour Valley put up a good show and led through Neil Townley but conceded twice in the dying moments to go down 2-1 away to Maidstone Tempests and Mersham’s second string were soundly beaten 4-0 by Castle Colts Reserves.

David Peters 20 October 2013Alex Williams and Danny Rose (2) were on target for leaders Aldington in their 3-1 Premier Division success over Marsh Athletic; Warren Smith replying for the visitors. Mersham came close to sharing the spoils at Waterside but the Green maintained their excellent run with goals by Dane Rollings and David Peters (2) [left]. Colin Burnikell and Luke Stanley answered for Mersham.

Troggs and Ashford Dynamo ended all square at 1-1 in the First Division with Danny Jennings and James Standen the respective scorers while Shadoxhurst remain at the helm after nicking a nine-goal thriller with Iden Park at Hornash Lane. Carlum MacLeod (3), Ricky Nash and Mitchell Punt netted for the Dockers with the Park responding via Philip Lee (3) and Sam Ricketts.

A converted penalty by Ryan Easter proved sufficient to earn Grasshoppers the Division Two points from their 1-0 win over visiting Troggs Reserves while Stanhope won 4-0 at Brabourne thanks to scores by Lee Hollingsbee, Luke Burdon, Lee Thompson and an unfortunate Bourne defender. Albion Eagles soared in 10-1 against Sandgate whose sole reward was an Ashley Hill effort. Scorers for Albion: Tom Wilmshurst (4), Paul Martin (3), Sam Cridland (2) and Matt Coglan.

In Division Three, it was the late, late show as Wye Reserves hit three in the last few minutes to defeat plucky Fox Sunday 3-1. Adam Ready’s strike looked to be enough for Fox but goals from Matt Sherwood (2) and Jack Teehan made for a dramatic finish. Ashford Spartans and Givaudan shared the points from their entertaining 3-3 draw with Liam Edmonds, Deryn Hardwick and Adam Bailey on the mark for Spartans and Givaudan replying through Dirk Roundhout, Rory Feever and Mark Hopkinson. At Appledore, Prince Albert kept their unbeaten record intact with a 1-1 draw against Aldington Reserves thanks to another goal from player/boss Gary Boorman. Sam Darby netted the villagers goal. The local derby featuring Park Farm and Pilgrims ended 3-0 in favour of the Park thanks to goals from Kevin Oakley, Simon Puxted and Paul Spiers.

Another pairing of neighbours, this time in the Division One Cup, witnessed Charing going through with a narrow 2-1 victory over Red Heathens. Shaun Jennings-McArdle netted for Heathens but goals by Dan Bussell and Matt Beeble saw Charing progress to round two.

Kennington had an easy passage in the Division Two Cup, 7-1 over Hamstreet Reserves, with goals supplied by Michael Hodges (2), Iain Seamons, Shane Beaney, Jake Prescott, Jake North and Stuart Taylor. Inconsistent Street answered through Wayne Cleave.

Happy birthday today to Sarah Cowley!

Looking forward to another packed weekend …

Mitch MannellLet’s hope for some kind weather as the club faces another packed programme of both junior and senior football headed by the Saturday firsts trip to Holm Park on the Island to face Sheppey and Sheerness East United. It is never easy to register positive results away to the Islanders who are unbeaten at home this term to date. Emmanuel Awuni and Ross Lawrie are both still on the crocks list but the form of Matt Forster and Mitchel Mannell [pictured] should give our hosts plenty to think about as we attempt to move away from the lower regions of the Kent County Premier Division table.

????????????Spirit is good in the Reserves camp and Diggers [left] and the boys will want to take their impressive cup form of late into the Division Three East fixture with third-placed Little Sharsted at Waterside. The gap between top and bottom is very small and a run of good results could yet see us chasing for honours. Kieran Shrimpton is still injured while Martyn Dalby and Ryan Prior are promoted from the Thirds.

Gary Penfold and Lee McRobert know they will have to be patient as the young Thirds find their feet in adult football but ‘old heads’ Robbie Richardson and Byron Price are providing the perfect foil for Miles Christian, Elliot Holewell, Lee Hagger, Connor Gower, Bekim and the rest of the kids to make their mark. Unfortunately another who has made great strides from last year’s U16s, wide player Connor Robbins, now has work commitments and his appearances will be limited. Dan Cornell is expected to lead the attack against tough opponents in Golden Arrow Reserves (home 2.45pm).

Miles, Elliott and Connor

Miles, Elliott and Connor Gower who are impressing in the Saturday Thirds

????????All of our youth teams are playing today [note the U13s are away in the afternoon] and the full list of games can be seen by clicking on the Fixtures tab. Winger Alfie Hills [left] has damaged an ankle and will miss the U15s home top of the table clash with Mersham which kicks off at 10am. Meanwhile, the U12s will want to bounce back quickly after last week’s setback as they face a difficult match away to highly-rated New Romney.

Sunday sees our McDonalds-sponsored BG Girls welcome Meridian for what is expected to be a close-fought affair (kick off is at 10am) while the Under 16s afternoon fixture with Hythe Stars & Stripes is off due to our opponents cup commitments.

????????????Another massive game for the Sunday firsts, who are shaping up into an exciting squad, as they meet title aspirants Mersham.  Dave Andrews has placed his faith in young lads that want to play both days for the club and the likes of Nathan Stevens [left], Liam Walsh, Reece Hagger, Mitchel Mannell etc have responded magnificently. Shrimpton, Lawrie and Awuni are sadly still sidelined by injury.

Mackett ... still a class act

Mackett … still a class act

With the atmosphere and level of performance completely transformed in recent weeks,  legendary club captain Glenn Mackett is also ready to guide the new boys into a fresh era. With so many injuries, Macca had to start his first game of the campaign against Market Hotel last Sunday but despite his long rest, it was business as usual. Exciting times and, with a number of ex-Green chaps involved for the visitors on Sunday, top class entertainment is predicted as usual between these two excellent footballing sides with a 10.30am start at Waterside.

It is Kent Sunday Junior Cup action for the seconds who travel to face Maidstone & Mid Kent Sunday League outfit White Horse. In-form Steve Wakam is likely to be available for Phil Wedge’s fledgling squad that surely deserves a small slice of good fortune before long. Neither side has recorded a victory this term to date so come on boys, the ability is there … a bit of belief!

Good luck everyone!
