Condolences and our thoughts to the family of Trevor Adams

Our Chairman Stan Donald has sent this message tonight: “It is with a very heavy heart and much sadness that I have to inform the club that Trevor Adams passed away suddenly this afternoon. At present I am not aware of the exact details.”

Trevor, through his company Print Junction, has been a great supporter of Bromley Green FC, printing and publishing our programmes, tickets etc without ever expecting reward for his kindness. Patron Dave Homewood said “After the loss of Paul Grindley recently one wonders why it is people who give so much of their life for the benefit of others that are taken from us at such a relatively early age. Trevor never once asked for a penny for all the favours he did for our club. Our condolences are sent to Trevor’s family. I am lost for words … the world is a lesser place. RIP Trevor Adams and thank you!”

The clubhouse will be open throughout today with curry tonight at the Brazil v Colombia game … all welcome

Happy birthday today to Sonny Wirt and Tom Poyner

Thanks to Nick of Brailsford Rowe Accountants

brailsfordroweThanks go to Nick for presenting the award to Coleton last night [Coleton could not attend the awards ceremony last week]. Coleton is one of the Under 9s who are doing the club proud and performances of late have shown remarkable improvement. With Jamie and James taking the squad for one more year, we expect the lads to really make an impact next season … but the main thing is that they have fun and enjoy their football; and of course display good sportsmanship! Nick is keen to forge further links with the club as he is a great believer in the work we do in the community, especially with local children. More from Nick in the near future but for all your accountancy needs please feel free to contact Brailsford Rowe.

Gibbo proud of Green U11 winners at Wittersham 7-a-side

Under 11s win the Plate Trophy at Wittersham

Wittersham Tournament

Success at the Wittersham Tournament … fantastic stuff boys … well done!

Former Bromley Green youth and senior stalwart Johnny Gibbs was delighted with the application of the U11s at Wittersham stating: “It was a pleasure managing the boys today … we had just a bare seven players and Jack Baxter had to play the final with a foot in bandages … I am so proud of them!”

Deputising  for holidaymaker manager Adrian Wood, Mr Gibbs continued: “I would like to say a big well-done to the seven boys who lifted the Plate Trophy at Wittersham. The boys had to play four group games and then the final with no subs whatsoever. They played some excellent football and never gave up in any of their matches against highly-rated opposition.”

Winning ... a great feeling!

Winning … a great feeling!

The final, against hosts Wittersham, was keenly fought with great saves at both ends. After a goalless opening half, the Green went close on several occasions and finally broke the deadlock with just a minute left when John Gibbs, following in his father’s illustrious footsteps, lobbed in a beauty from long range. However, as so often happens, a lack of concentration was punished with the last kick as Wittersham broke downfield and equalised.

Onto the ‘Golden Goal’ and credit to both sides who really went for the decider. Three minutes gone and jubilation for the Green boys as Jordan Jolly won the ball in midfield before firing home a long driving shot. No arguments now … the Plate was coming home to the Green!

Our Jack is Player of the Tournament ... splendid, gutsy displays Jack, well done mate!
