The weekend is here …

Birthday greetings today to Miles Christian!

Have a great tournament weekend everyone … ground opens 6.30am with the clubhouse open for drinks etc from 7.30am. Please keep the noise down early doors out of respect for our neighbours.

And have a go on Lisa’s fantastic raffle or she will nag you! The prizes are plentiful and well worth winning.

Registration times on both days are 0820 and 1300 … fixtures are subject to slight amendment with late withdrawals and additions

Thanks in advance to all who help to stage the event, too many to mention, and please encourage our young referees as they gaining experience while officiating for the love of the game.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNDAY  TO LASHMAN (aka The Pizza Burner)

The ‘in’famous Lash pizza

Ashford Charity Trophy (Sunday section)
We have been drawn at home to Brewmaster in the first round … a tie which brings back many memories. The winners of that match entertain Ashford United Colts.

Friday 23 June 2017: Tournament this weekend

Looking forward to Tournament weekend, a reminder that registrations on both Saturday and Sunday are 0820 and 1300. Helpers please arrive from 0630 with gates open to the public from 0730. Duncan could still do with a little more help from referees … so do give him a call if you are able/willing to take up the whistle.

UPDATE: we have had an U12 side drop out this morning due to lack of players … any taker? Please email dhomewood@yahoo.com for a late entry … thank you. This means we can now accommodate one U8, U12, U13 and U15 side … but it’s getting late! Bromley Green Juniors Tournament is this Sat/Sun

Jordan part of a new wave of Green signings

Brian Edwards with new capture Jordan Osborne after training last night. Iden based Jordan is one of five new signings as the Green prepare for next season in the U15 division of the ADYFL.

* Under 14s
We go into Sunday with all 20 players expected to take part but the main objective is to gradually build for the new season. New signings already pledged to join our campaign in the ADYFL include Kai, Jordan, Sonny, Bart and Josh K. We are looking for friendlies, weekends or midweek, home or away. Please email dhomewood@yahoo.com … thank you.

* Under 15s
The shameful treatment of our U15s, leaving children with no football next season after years of building, should make all those that are fair-minded more determined than ever to do the right thing by youngsters – offering them an inclusive, safe and vibrant environment to develop as people and players. I am proud that this club can rise above such petty, vindictive, pernicious and discriminatory practice. These lads will be back after a year, playing in our senior sides; and then watch us go! Editor

ALL players should be on standing orders
Can all managers/admin please ensure all players are signed up to standing orders (and at the correct rate). If in any doubt, please speak to Dave Homewood as a matter of priority … thank you.
