Midnight update: The groundsman has tonight called off all Saturday home games, including seniors … the pitches are simply not playable

water-logged-pitch-inspection-l1_lIf anyone thinks they can do a better job than the groundsman, who is constantly criticised by those who hold no responsibility, then please talk to me direct and I am sure the Executive will listen and appoint you accordingly to make pitch inspections … I thought not! DH

The groundsman will inspect again on Saturday pm but the prospects for Sunday at Waterside are not good

Kuba is enjoying a great season

Brilliant to see Kuba fulfilling his potential … above an attack at West Farleigh for the Saturday U13s last week while on Sunday Trinity were on the receiving end of a Kuba missile as the Green entered the Cup semis with a crushing 5-1 victory … more photos on the respective youth team pages

Please … can ALL youth teams be represented at the Youth Project Meeting this evening starting at 7.15pm. It does not have to be the manager or admin as it is appreciated that they have enough to do already … but it is important a suitable delegate attends. The meeting is designed primarily to give an update on club policy and will be concluded at 8pm with the big game on the box and free food provided for those that wish to socialise.

Looking back at the weekend in brief …

Dover carry the Kent flag into the FA Cup Third Round 
resize139x189With Maidstone United and Dartford both going through the exit door, our sole survivors in the FA Cup this time round are Dover Athletic who triumphed 1-0 at Cheltenham Town on Sunday. Twenty-two year old central defender Connor Essam [left] netted the historic goal and The Whites now eagerly anticipate tonight’s third round draw.

Eleven for Green Reserves
By half time the Green seconds were out of sight against Rolvenden Reserves in the Ashford & District League and were disappointed not to keep a clean sheet. As it was, the side consolidated its place in mid-table with an 11-2 victory thanks to scores from Aaron Negus (2), Gary Penfold (3), Ryan Ford (2), Matt Wedge, Martyn Dalby, Jordan Griffin and Marcus Dalby. Next week the squad entertain Chartham Sports Reserves with an early kick off in the Faversham Charity Cup.

Under 13s turn the tables to overpower Trinity and enter cup semis

[updated] Sunday night last knockings with McDonalds: Girls into cup final/Under 13s hit top form in League Cup

All the weekend’s results at a glance … please scroll down …

Cup delight for the BG Girls and Under 13s

McArches-1-colMore details to follow but it was celebrations all round at Waterside today with Kent Cup holders Bromley Green Girls, sponsored by McDonalds, booking the chance to retain the coveted trophy with a fabulous 3-1 defeat of Margate. A great team effort, with Lucy Smith in sensational form, as Izzy Robinson, Abbey Davies and Izzy Griffiths scored the goals to send us into the final showdown. Well done to the management team and the players!

A day of cup drama became even better in the afternoon as our Under 13s looked like a real Bromley Green team as they thrashed Trinity 5-1 to enter the East Kent Youth League Cup semi-finals. Manager Damian Morse will know exactly what that means, having come through the youth ranks himself as a teenager, and we now look forward to a semi-final against a Hawkinge side that hammered us 8-0 recently. Alfie, Riley and Ollie were immense at the back but this was a much more determined all-round squad display with Ryan (2), Haydon, Kuba and Zac netting the goals. Full report to follow.

In the morning, full marks to the eleven who turned up for the cup game with Sandgate AFC but once again certain players failed to appear and almost inevitably the trip to Coolinge Lane proved fruitless. Tom Moon netted both goals in the 4-2 defeat.
