Tuesday with KAP

KAP are sponsors of Bromley Green U13 Colts

Sponsors still needed for U10s and seniors

Gary Penfold and Lee McRobert look forward to the new season, starting with Wednesday's visit of in-form Canterbury outfit Dayspring

Almost all of the Bromley Green teams are now sponsored and once again we send thanks to those firms and individuals who have put their faith in us [and their hands in their pockets!] A new kit is about to be delivered for the U10s but they still need a sponsor. So, if anyone out there reading this is interested in supporting a rapidly improving squad, equipped with an exciting new management structure ready to take over early in the New Year, please contact Dave Homewood at dhomewood@yahoo.com for further details.

Our senior sides have been forced to rebuild and will continue to be packed with youngsters; and they too are seeking sponsorship backing. Gary and Lee [pictured above], together with Martyn Dalby, Josh Ahmad and Dave Andrews, are now getting some stability with their respective senior squads and are confident that, with patience, the good times for adult teams will soon return.

Training is ON … plus football on the box tonight
Scotland-v-England-ITV-STV-Sky-SportsClubhouse opens at 4.30pm and will remain open for the Scotland v England ‘friendly’ on the box for those that want free hot food after training.

As far as is known, all training is ON tonight both at Waterside and external venues. An evening without a downpour would not go amiss!

Wishes for a quick return to injured Ollie and Aaron

Aaron Maher 28.8.2014Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery go to two of our lads who have sustained serious injuries.

Ollie Prior has damaged/dislocated a knee while it has been confirmed that Aaron Maher [left] has a fractured ankle. Both will be out for some considerable time.

SOLD-OUT-TICKETS1-1024x400It’s a big week at the Gallagher Stadium with Maidstone United putting up the ‘Sold Out’ signs as tickets were snapped up for Thursday’s FA Cup replay showdown with Stevenage Town. But first, the warm-up act is tonight as the Stones welcome Hythe Town for a Kent Senior Cup tie with a place in the last eight the prize. Tickets for this evening are half price (£5).

No home games plus complete washout for the seniors

Fantastic fun for some and sheer frustration for others as the abysmal weather left our seniors facing a blank weekend and, despite valiant efforts, the Under 13s having to take down the goals as the heavens opened an hour before the much anticipated table-topper against Mersham. Also, there was big disappointment for the Under 8s as their pitch was flooded but at least they had some fun at their sponsors Key Auto Trade as seen below.

The Under 8s braved the awful weather to visit their sponsor Key Auto Trade despite their game with Biddenden being called off at the last moment due to another downpour

The Under 8s braved the awful weather to visit sponsor Key Auto Trade despite their game with Biddenden being called off at the last moment due to another downpour at aptly named Waterside … loads more photos to follow here and on the Under 8s Page [Youth Football tab and scroll down to U8s 2014-2015]

... and the parents loved the occasion as well!

… and the parents loved the occasion as well!

Guido’s little men  and Nicole went down at Smeeth & Brabourne but what a result for our Under 14s who stormed to a 4-0 Cup triumph away to Grasshoppers. Before leaving for New Romney, captain Harrison Eldridge told me “We lost 8-5 to them before but we will win today”. That’s what we want to hear and Harrison once more found himself on the scoresheet as John’s boys continue to gain in confidence. A hat trick from Sean Mabb was the highlight but well done to the whole squad and a special mention for Mason Smith who travelled to support his team mates even though he didn’t get a kick … a true clubman! For the manager’s report, please go to Youth Football and scroll down to U14s 2014-2015.

Round-up and results Saturday 15 November 2014
(All other games postponed due to waterlogged pitches)

Gilingham eased their Division One relegation fears with a 94th minute winner from Cody McDonald to snatch the points with a 3-2 defeat of a Leyton Orient side that now finds itself in the drop zone. After a goalless opening half, which witnessed a saved spot kick by Danny Kedwell after just six minutes, the visitors took the lead with a penalty of their own converted by Gianvito Plasmati in the 48th minute. The Gill responded with two goals by Leon Legge but just as the Priestfield crowd were getting ready for the final whistle, Scott Dagnall nodded home for 2-2 with 93 minutes on the clock. The Kent club, reduced to ten men when the much-travelled on loan midfielder Michael Doughty received two yellows, somehow found a little more in the tank to register their first victory in ten games when McDonald fired in from close range right at the death.

Two goals from Chris Newby dumped Maidstone United out of the FA Trophy at the Gallagher as AFC Sudbury left 2-0 victors but Folkestone Invicta earned a replay on Tuesday after a goalless draw at Burgess Hill Town. Maidstone now focus on preparing for Thursday’s FA Cup replay with Stevenage Town.

Margate meanwhile extended their lead at the summit of the Ryman Premier to seven points thanks to a 3-1 win over Bognor Regis Town. Maidstone however have four games in hand of the Gate. Luke Moore, Lewis Taylor (p) and Ryan Moss were the Margate marksmen. Attendance at Hartsdown was 550.
