Wilmoths

Clubhouse opens today at 5pm

Training for all seniors, U18s and older U16s … please meet with DH at 6.30pm prior to training when arrangements for Sunday football for the coming season will be outlined. I won’t be offended if some of you bring some money!

Plenty of football over the weekend … look at the Fixtures tab if you are not sure

Plus on TV we have Leeds v Middlebrough lunchtime Saturday and Liverpool v Southampton [well, at least most of them will know each other!] on Sunday at 1pm. Saturday after the Green games we are showing Arsenal v Crystal Palace 4.45pm … all welcome.

Football trips
Josh Ahmad (U15) and Damian Morse (U13 EKYL) have asked for their squads to be entered into the ESF Butlins tournament in May and a final decision from parents/players will be needed by the end of next week to attract the early booking offers. The Bromley Green U16s (Martyn and Carl) have already been invited to Belgium next August and I have accepted. Any other managers interested in tours, home or abroad, please discuss with Dave Homewood asap.

Well done to Pat and the parents and the very young ones for training in awful weather last night … terrific dedication

Last night briefly …

Jake MacKenzie Whitstable Town FC 2014Hastings United were unconvincing at the Pilot Field last night but they took over top spot in the Ryman South by virtue of a 1-1 draw with Whitstable Town. After a goalless opening half, United took the lead through captain Frankie Sawyer but the Oystermen deservedly earned a share of the spoils with an equaliser from young former Charlton and Gills winger Jake McKenzie [left]. A debut here for former Bromley Green, Hythe Town and Ashford United midfielder David Cook who started in place of metatarsal victim Ronnie Dolan. On Saturday Hastings entertain Chipstead.

Following their mauling at Homelands on Saturday, there was more misery for Fisher who slumped 3-0 in front of their own supporters in the Southern Counties East League. Enoch Adjei gave Phoenix a 39th minute advantage and added a second shortly after the interval before Ricky Freeman rounded off the scoring.

Sunday with stac-a-truc

Great game despite the weather
Torrential driving rain didn’t dampen the spirits at Waterside where a Bromley Green Sunday XI featured in an end-to-end pre-season friendly with Batchelors SSC. A good work-out for both sides ended 3-1 to the visitors with Shqipron Ahmetaj on target for the Green for whom Sokol Kristolleri, keeper Martyn Dalby and Josh Ahmad had impressive outings. Luke Macey caught the eye for the works side. Well done to young referee Callum Wright who is making his mark in senior football.

Birthday greetings today to Angela Sorrell

Executive meeting at 1.30pm

This morning we welcome Batchelors SSC for a pre-season friendly (10.30am) … let’s hope the weather doesn’t ruin things again!

CB Removals Lorry

Clubhouse opens today at 1pm for the home game with Bredhurst Juniors which kicks off at 2.45pm. Gary and Lee have some absentees due to work and other commitments but this is a great chance for some lads from the reserves to stake a serious claim for a place in the County League side.

On Sunday, players are to meet at 9am for the visit of Batchelors SSC [ko 10.30am]. The squad is: M Dalby; L Parsonage, K Shrimpton, H Kadiri, S0kol Kristollari, N Stevens, K O’Leary, E Awuni, T Perk, S Ahmetaj, D Rollings, J Griffin, T Collins, J Kalungiadi, R Prior.

Next week, for the trip to Kennington, Callum Rose, Gary Penfold, Glenn Mackett, Tyler Loosemore, Steve Wakam, Elliott Holewell and Tom Poyner are amongst those who will be included as we try and give everyone a friendly run-out prior to the big kick off.

Result Friday night
Southern Counties East League
Corinthian 1-2 Lordswood

Lords go top as three see red at the Farm in season opener
The first official fixture of the new season in Kent ended in acrimony at Gay Dawn Farm as visitors Lordswood clung onto a 2-1 lead to take maximum SCEL points from hosts Corinthian. The 137 paying spectators sprung to life in the 81st minute when Mohammad Esia forced a tense finale after the Lords had led through two first half goals from Sam Hallett. Two Hoops (Billings and Nwitua) plus Lords captain Steve Hafner  were dismissed in a frantic last few exchanges as Jason Lillis and his boys go top at least for a few hours! Next up for the Lords is a home game with title-aspirants Ashford United on Tuesday.
