Focus on our Under 10s who are being rewarded for their hard work
Great to see the Under 10s still smiling and now getting the results in their second season. All credit to Sam and Seb [who will soon take over the management roles full time], Barrie, Pat, John, Brian and of course our brilliant admin lady Jane. Here is a slideshow from a special winning performance on 7 February 2015 with thanks to our Lisa.
Thursday, Friday, Sunday … Rain!
End of the week, and it is a banker that we will have rain … the forecast is depressing but let’s keep our fingers crossed that most of our teams can play their matches. Pitch inspection details will be published here if we need to go down that road yet again. Ban the rain!

Is it not to be for Hamlet? That is the question …
Only a handful of matches last night but without doubt the outcomes will have a profound effect on the final day of reckoning. None more so than in the Ryman Premier where a 79th minute goal from Elliott Romain earned Lewes their best result of the season to date, a 1-0 defeat of high-riding Dulwich Hamlet. Joy for most of the 480 paying pundits at The Pan as Lewes moved cautiously clear of the drop zone within hours of Danny Bloor and Dean Lightwood stepping down. Dulwich now find themselves five points adrift of leaders Maidstone United and crucially with three games more played.
The Stones meanwhile couldn’t get no satisfaction from their trip to Harrow where they slumped 2-0 to Hendon in the quarter final of the Ryman League Cup. A goal in each half from Anthony Taggart and Samuel Murphy [p] settled the issue in front of just 84 paying spectators.
Fans of Phoenix Sports admitted their side were well below par against Woodstock Sports but a 2-1 victory at Barnehurst keeps the pacesetters seven points clear at the top of the South Eastern Counties League. Woodstock took a 40th minute lead through Brett Ince but Yacine Gnahore grabbed a critical leveller on the stroke of half time. George King hit the decider after 68 minutes. Attendance at this one 75.
All smiles at Eden Park Avenue where Beckenham Town turned the form book upside down and moved into the last four of the South Eastern Counties League Cup by virtue of a 3-1 defeat of Erith & Belvedere. On target for the Becks were Hasson Jalloh, Jamie Humphries and Travis Gregory. Denzel Gayle netted the Deres consolation. Attendance: 125.
