“Those were the days!”

Always good to hear from ex-players. Jamie King has sent the following flashback to the past:

Hi Dave
Great to hear your still going strong. I remember you picking us up for matches back in 1984-1986. I used to borrow my dads lawn mower to mow around the clubhouse! Will never forget the trip to Weymouth – we must have been about 15 – Me (Jamie King) Gary Holmes, Rob Eighteen, Mark Samsom, Paul Hirst and Paul Rich. Never seen men drink so much McEwans larger. First lesson on how to chat the girls up in the caravan clubhouse! I remember you saying that there was no way we were getting a sign written minibus, which I thought strange. Then I realised why as we all mooned out of the windows driving back home! Those were the days. All the best.

Welcome to Lewis

lewis-anstissA warm welcome is extended to U15 left-sided midfielder Lewis Anstiss [pictured] who has signed for Martin Wirt in the ADYL and Sean Phelan in the EKYL..

It is hoped Lewis, formerly with Tenterden Tigers, will be registered in time for Saturday’s home game with Marsh Youth (10.30am).

Following a period out of the game due to injury, Lewis will begin training with the EKYL squad next Wednesday at the North School.

Thanks go to all those who attended the Youth Project Meeting last night on behalf of their squads plus Executive members Shane Cowley (Vice Chairman), James Porter (Youth Officer), Lisa Copham (Respect Ambassador) and The Patron.

The sub-committee to oversee the implementation of the Football Development Plan, which incorporates new facilities, is still being formed and there is still time for a few extra faces of interested persons. Please contact Dave Homewood at the ground or email davehomewoodbromleygreenfc@hotmail. co.uk

The results are starting to come for the Colts … great win … well done!

Just one game in the club this weekend thanks to the weather but what a victory for our Colts, 4-1 away to Marsh Youth. Report below … well done all! Cade was Player of the Match with the Green goals provided by new signing Matt, Olly, Alfie and Ben.

Report from Duncan Randall

Today we travelled down to The Rype in Lydd to face Marsh Youth, a team who have beaten us the last 3 games!
With Luke R out once more due to illness the Captaincy fell to Cade who calmed the nerves right from the off.
Within minutes debutant Matt Head opened our account and set the standard. From here on in it was clear to see the confidence of the whole team rise.
Opportunities came and went through the first half and Marsh became frustrated.
Into the break leading 1-0.
A few changes made and straight into the second half hungry for goals, the first 10 minutes saw us increase our lead to 4-0 with goals from Olly, Alfie and Ben.
Marsh scored late on but the damage was done and the game was comfortably seen out for a 4-1 victory. The score could have been higher today.
A great game full of confidence, teamwork, dedication and determination. Not one player shirked responsibility or backed off.
100% effort was given by all today and I am very very happy.
One of the best games I have been part of in the last 6 years and 3 points that will take us from the bottom of the league.
Well done all.
Dunk

Update 1pm: as far as is known, just two Division One games have survived the elements  in the Ashford & District League this afternoon (2.15pm)
Rolvenden Reserves v Folkestone Invicta Disability
Woodchurch v Biddenden

Happy birthday today to Lillie Edwards!

Well that’s plans for a packed weekend of football gone for a burton! Just one game on at present and that is the U15/16 Colts away to Marsh Youth. James will open the clubhouse on Saturday at 10.30am.

The normal listing of local league fixtures seems pretty pointless but if we hear of any games that are actually on, they will be published.

U8s trip to The Valley

Before booking, I need the exact number of players that are committed to taking part please. Also, can you let Rachel know which parents are accompanying and who is driving. The cost will be determined by the number of ‘definite’ players.  I can generate the paperwork, including consent and deposit forms, immediately once I know numbers. Many thanks DH.
