Morning update … change of ADYFL roles

As some of you know, Vanessa has decided to step down from all of her roles with the Ashford & District Youth League. On behalf of the club, we thank her for her hard work over the years and wish her all the best for the future.

Fixtures and registrations will now be under the auspices of Nancy with Barrie taking over the role of secretary.

The new kit sponsored by Miki Travis and Ellicon Construction Ltd has arrived … just having the badge and logo printed now before handing over

All training is on as per the schedule (Events & Fixtures page)

Welcome to two new signings for Matt Church tonight with Harvey and Max expected to make their debuts at the U10 tournament on Saturday at Charing

Whoever shut the gate to the field tonight whilst training was getting under way … DON’T! I opened it at 1.30pm and, unless you are prepared to answer complaints about overspill parking onto the Swan Centre car park, I suggest you park on the field and/or in our own car park. Twats are still parking in front of the gate which is pretty obviously access for both cars and emergency vehicles. If anyone is unhappy with that, come and talk to me face to face and I will endeavour to explain even further. Maria Black has kindly purchased signs to try and help you understand. Thank you DH

Clubhouse open today from 1.30pm with DH if anyone needs a chat  … Leah-Ann your hostess from 5.30pm

All training is on as per the schedule

Super game with our friends from Park Farm Rangers

Manager’s summary of Sunday’s 6-0 victory over AFC Guildhall

Our latest sponsor secured by Gary Gibbs

Today’s game could have been a banana skin against an organised side. 30 minutes in it looked like a tough game as we missed a hatful of opportunities when on 35 minutes an 18-yard slice off Milton’s shin pad found the roof of the net.

This opened the floodgates as we quickly followed up with goals from Shrimpton and another 30-yarder from Gower. Second half saw two quick goals from the hard working birthday boy Ryan Ford. Finished off by a nod in header from Chopper Trott [left]. Man of the match went to Matthew Wedge who I think is growing up and not getting involved in unnecessary crap 👍🏻

Next Sunday the squad welcome new faces in the shape of Folkestone-based Nailbox for a Bodkin Cup tie. Our visitors will be buoyant after a thrilling extra time Kent Sunday Cup win away to Belle Vue yesterday. Kick off at Waterside is 10.30am and all support welcome.

The Sunday Reserves considered themselves very unlucky to come away pointless from their trip to The Ridge where they met high-riding Lolzors Reserves. Jack Hollamby netted for the much-improved young Green lads  who also missed a penalty. The management team were delighted with the effort by the boys and the future is looking bright.

Next week the squad turns its attention to the Kent Sunday Cup with a visit to Mersham Reserves. Kick off is at 10.30am and meet time in the clubhouse is 9.15am sharp please.

Sunday 14 October 2018 with McDonalds

Solid win for the firsts this morning and an encouraging display by the seconds who really deserved some reward from their 2-1 defeat away to Lolzors Reserves. Thanks to all those senior players/management who supported the clubhouse today … it’s what makes it worthwhile.  Thanks to all those who helped me with the bar!

Under 9s DVA summary from the New Romney Tournament
This morning we travelled to New Romney for the league tournament. I have to say we played some lovely football, winning our group with 3 wins and 1 draw scoring 8 and only conceding 1. Team had a great togetherness helping each other out. With Zak in goal diving at players feet to get the ball and pulling of great saves, Aedan up front working hard to get the ball back for us, William at the back was a rock do not think any player got past him today, Gerrard with his great skill on the wing and work rate, Riley in the middle of midfield getting the tackles in and showing great skill on the ball, Alfie with his great left foot putting some lovely passes together, Rhys playing out of possession but putting in a great individual performance as not completely comfortable playing on the wing and up front, for my son and captain Jack (I am his biggest critic) he was amazing and I am proud to say that’s my boy getting 4 goals today and running his legs off for the team as always.
We were without Aldy and Keane both missed today.
I would also like to thank all the parents for bringing the kids along to games, training and letting me have the pleasure of teaching them football.
Dean Mansfield
Happy and proud manager of Bromley Green U9 DVS

The BGFC U9s DVS who shone in tournament action today

Under 11s report from the manager (not allowed to give the score)
Today we welcomed Pilgrims to Waterside which was to be a thrilling game with end to end stuff; but missing some key players told as the boys struggled to convert the chances which they need to take against teams like this. An off day but need to pick themselves up for an even tougher game next week – not allowed to give score let’s just say I wasn’t impressed and can’t rely on certain players. PoTM today goes to Ben for some solid defending
Cheers Rob

Under 10 Colts improving all the time … not allowed to give the score

Contemplation after another promising display by the U10 Colts … but Reegan and Travis have other things on their minds than listening to the managers!

Getting better every match … the U10 Colts with Pip and Andrew

Well done Archie … our U10 Colts PoM today

It’s off to McDonalds for our Archie

Matt Church with the U10s today

Thursday 11 October 2018

Clubhouse open today from midday to 8pm with DH

There are a number of issues ‘bubbling’ at the moment – so do pop in and see me out of hours if you want to chat privately

Happy birthday today to Pip Castle!

Can I suggest all training commences by 5.30pm as the nights are drawing in at an alarming rate … up to you managers but please let me know.

External venue midweek training is set to commence after half-term (week commencing Monday 29 October 2018). I am still waiting for confirmation from some schools, so please bear with me. No point starting before as attendance during half term is historically pathetic and a waste of a huge amount of money. Thanks DH

Sunday Reserves … can you all check you have Sid’s number please (07391902851) and make sure he knows if you are available or otherwise. This week is away to Lolzors Reserves (believe they play at The Ridge but not heard yet). Please meet 9.15am in the clubhouse as the traffic is bound to be horrendous as usual. Usual squad lads … I will post on facebook. Four points from last two games and a smile on faces … so let’s be positive and keep building.
