Entertaining evening game as Green take maximum points

Full marks to referee Vince Bottacchi and both sides last night at Sandyacres where Fox Sunday and Bromley Green put on an entertaining affair that remained close until the final stages.

Ryan Ford gave the visitors an early lead when he finished off a super move and, when Ryan Carter saw his shot wriggle over the line for a 2-0 interval advantage, a comfortable Green victory seemed on the cards.

However, Fox are renowned for their never-say-die spirit and were back in the hunt almost straight from the restart when Kieran Shrimpton inadvertently nodded in an own goal. The introduction at the break of Matt Dorsett gave the home team a solid look at the back and for twenty minutes the outcome was in the balance.

Fox pressed as Green nerves jangled a shade but – with both sides missing key players – it was the visitors greater strength in depth from the bench that saw their fitness dominate in the last ten minutes.

With Andrew Trott and Jamie Hurst terrific in the air, the Green finished with a flourish with Carter striking his second and Shrimpton atoning for his earlier lapse with a superb run and well-taken goal.

Levii Loyza and Luke Burdon, who came off due to the recurrence of an ankle injury, caught the eye for the Green with Fox well served by Jamie Steele and veteran Andy Jones.

Green: Burton; Shrimpton, Trott, Hurst, Dobbin, Carter, Milton, Burdon L, Gower, Ford, Loyza. Subs: Ahmad, Taylor S, Prior, Ahmetaj

This Sunday, the pressure stays on the Green who welcome Simon and the Cavaliers to Waterside (10.30am). Reserves have a free day.

Disappointment as cup final is abandoned at Hythe

The pre-match handshakes with the mascots … all friendly until the unseemly fracas led to abandonment

On the stroke of half-time, everything turned sour at Reachfields and referee Ben Marshall called a halt to proceedings. Big disappointment for a good-sized crowd but the behaviour of a tiny minority is the major concern. This club doesn’t condone poor behaviour by any of its associates, especially with so many children from our youth teams in attendance. We will take responsibility and act internally once guidance/decisions are received from the League. Adults connected to both camps ran onto the field to become involved in unsavoury scenes – and to say a good example to youngsters was not set is an understatement. The game itself had been exciting with the Green 3-2 up with the interval looming thanks to scores by Jamie Hurst (pen) and Luke Burdon (2). But other matters spoiled what promised to be a showpiece final.

Reserves dominate for long spells but go down 3-1

A somewhat subdued affair with Biddenden ended as a 3-1 defeat for the Reserves at Waterside. Ryan Prior atoned for a bad miss with a super strike to leave it 1-1 at the the interval; but it wasn’t to be.

Sloppy goals conceded, added to the propensity to take on too many opponents when a pass might be more effective, led to a disappointing outcome.

Jack Brown and Prior had impressive outings.

Sunday opening 8am – 12.30pm and again 5pm onwards

Birthday greetings Sunday to Stephanie Hone and Daniel Andrews!

Sunday opening time = 9am

Saturday night briefly: fantastic performances at tournaments today … first medals for U9 Colts … U9s reach final … Phoebe hat trick for the U10 Colts … first McDonalds PoM for Thomas Pickard … super show from the Under 11s … Kieran Barnes on target as Grant is delighted with the U12s … Sid’s group buzzing … all the reports and photos to follow asap

Matt Church reports on the U10s

What a difference a week makes. After a disappointing performance last week we welcomed Biddenden to Waterside.  And what an exciting game it was with Harry doing a great job in goal and the left wing in the second half. Both defenders Max and Harvey  growing in confidence with every game bringing the ball out setting up attacks. Ellis on the right with his usual great touch and goal assists, Bobby in commanding form both in attack and defence and the ever dependable Riley who gets everywhere on the pitch even in goal in the second half. A really good solid performance by everyone. A big thank you and best wishes to Harry and family as they set off on a new adventure. 
Bobby (1 × goal and PoM)
Riley (1 × goal)
Also a big thank you to the managers and everyone at the Orbital McDonalds for their hospitality as we enjoyed our lunch after a great match. 

Under 11s with Timmy after the South shford game

Well done Charlie!

Match report from Timmy Russell
Today we played South Ashford and our new team didn’t take long to show its quality. Archie quickly off the mark followed by a goal from Timmy. South Ashford pulled 1 back with a screamer, game on until Archie got his hat-trick Charlie. R got one from the spot followed by another Archie goal. Great performance by all only 2nd game together and a 6-1 win. Excellent player of match today Charlie Bryant.

Report from Rob Finn on the U11s away match

Today we made the trip to the Marsh to face a strong EKYL Grasshoppers side in a friendly and what evenly fought encounter it was with both teams playing some great football. But against the run of play the boys found themselves 1-0 down after failing to clear a corner but credit to the boys who kept battling and got the equaliser just before the break when Matteo chipped the keeper HT 1-1. The second half was end to end stuff with both sides going close with chances in front of goal but with 10 minutes to go the Hoppers snatched a second goal  2-1 which was to be the final score. Well done all that took part and well done to Alfie for getting PoTM.

Early start Saturday – message from Phil to U10 Warriors: can we all please meet in the clubhouse at 7.45am … don’t forget we return to the clubhouse after the game and wear McDonalds kit as we are going to Orbital Park 11.30am.
