Exciting news: youth teams in County Boys Cups
Next season our U13s, U14s and U16s will compete in the Kent County Boys Cup … something different and a great experience to which we can all look forward. Think perhaps it should be renamed by the Kent FA as girls play as well!

Thanks to Grant for covering the seniors training last night. Gradually building a squad for the Sunday seconds who open their friendly matches away to Ashford United in two weeks’ time. More players needed, contact dhomewood@yahoo.com or text 07761101988 for more details.

Saturday morning latest: Under 10s win Charing tournament

Great performance by Ben, PoT for the U10s on Saturday

Rob and the winning squad today who triumphed with penalties after a thrilling but goalless final against Kennington

Report from Rob Finn on today’s triumph

Today the boys took part in the Charing tournament and there was quality football on show and some brilliant goals scored. The boys only conceded 3 goals in six games, only losing one game which shows how good a team effort it was. They ended up winning the group and went on to play Kennington in the final which finished 0-0 so it went to penalties which the boys came through winning 9-8. So a big well done to all that took part and well done to Ben getting PoTT today for some great play and his decisive penalty in the shootout.

More photos to follow … good luck to Grant the U11s at Homelands this afternoon

Update: U13s meeting time at the club tomorrow is now 7am

Player of the Season voting forms will be available again tonight and for the next two weeks – can managers please ask their players to come into the clubhouse on a training night, or at the weekend, and vote in privacy. It only takes a minute. First, second and third choices – so if there is a clash with the Manager’s Player nomination, we can consult. Managers and parents don’t pick the Players Player of the Season … the players do. Still a couple of managers to send me their nominations please. These can range from Clubperson, Parents’ Player, Most Improved, Best Newcomer, Best Trainer and so forth. Awards day details have been on this website for ages (Events & Fixtures page).

Tournaments this weekend: all details are on the Events & Fixtures page. One important reminder to U13s … remember to take footwear for grass and 3G to the Paddock Wood event.

Anyone available to represent us at the Ashford Charity Trophy AGM on 3 July 2018? It is at Sandyacres starting 7.30pm. Several of us are at the club with other commitments that night, so a volunteer (or two) will be most appreciated. Lisa is doing registrations, DH is covering bar and helping with registrations, Sid is taking training, James is taking training. Let me know if you are able to attend on the club’s behalf. Thank you DH.

The Under 12s enjoy the sunshine … on Sunday, the squad goes to Homelands for more tournament action
