U18s report from Central Park: Bredhurst Juniors 2-0 Bromley Green
A disappointing loss today but positives in the performance. We were slow at the beginning of the game and conceded early on through poor defending from a cross; but fought hard to gain some control back into the tie which came our best period of the game. A sin bin to one of their players for kicking the ball away helped us keep control and we started to knock on the door a bit more. Aidan tree was then interestingly sin binned as well for a small shove in the back that got the teams level on players again. We were getting into better positions and we were the stronger team all the way throughout to the second half. The boys continued to push hard looking for an equaliser and a fine performance from Kai Jones in goal today consisting of an excellent penalty save as well as saving the rebound followed a string of outstanding saves that were only inspirational as we kept on trying to work the defence and opposing goalkeeper. However chances were few – most notably hitting the bar. As the game wore on and tired legs came into play the defence became open and they scored a well worked over the top goal late into the game which saw them go 2-0 up and game over. Lots of hard work put in and some gutsy performances on a sandy bobbly pitch which the boys had to deal with. Disappointing result but lots of positives that can be taken from the performance.
Thanks Will Lines
Two successive losses leaves Sid Hone with plenty to think about. A 4-2 defeat at The Ridge against Waterside leaves the seniors propping up the rest. Luke Couper and an own goal provided the two for the Green.
Under 13s Pirtek out-muscled at Lyminge 4-0 on a bone hard pitch and in sunny picnic conditions! Well done to the 12 that did their best and we will take some positives into next week’s home match at Sandyacres against Barham Youth (2pm). Player of the match will be handed out at training on Thursday.
In all honesty, not the best of Sabbaths!
Mersham v Bromley Green Hurricanes U10s
Green squad: Ethan, Owen, Charlie, Ibrahim, Tyler Thomas, Alfie, Louis, Daniel, George and Nathaniel
In what was the last friendly before the season starts, the Hurricanes put up a strong performance against a very strong Mersham team. On what we knew would be a difficult game the team never stopped battling from beginning to the end.
Some strong performances all round but the PotM went to Louis for his battling performance in midfield. Settling into his role in midfield as a bundle of energy and the confidence driving forward with the ball. Well played Louis. Looking forward to season start away to Wittersham next week.
Bromley Green DVS battle on to remain top of the league
Bromley Green DVS 4 -2 Biddenden
This week Bromley Green DVS took on Biddenden Juniors as they continue to impress in the Pacific under 12s league. Bromley playing up a year made another strong start. Last weeks Match winner Phoebe strikes early only for the ball to hit the post and go high.
Biddenden soon found their feet in the game and made a good fight of it with lots of football being played in the middle of the park and both teams exchanging possession frequently
On 15 minutes the ball comes down the right hand side and Phoebe latches onto it in the box, cuts in and shoots . 1-0 To Bromley green and just in time before a sanitisation break.
4 minutes later and she is at it again and makes it 2-0 but both teams still have everything to play for.
Biddenden kept pushing and kept fighting hard and have both pace and some strength in their team and on 24 minutes they make it 2-1. With some fine work down the right hand side they put a great into the box we struggle to deal with it and they latch on to get on the score sheet.
The remainder of the first half was end to end and while Bromley were not playing their best football they were demonstrating that strong work ethic and battling spirit that proved so successful last season. Last ditch tackles from Rhys and and the midfield digging deep and winning second balls made it difficult for them and just before half time with some better passing Bromley green make it 3-1 and extend their lead back to 2 goals.
The second half was much the same as the first in that both teams competed well and chances came and went. Bromley had hit the wood work a few times and Biddenden were making their own chances but it was tight. Then Bromley green made the most of their chances with Phoebe scrambling in a ball that a few players had already attempted to score with. Rebounds came and went along with a few saves but eventually we make it 3-1.
Biddenden continue to make a game of it though and shortly after when creating a couple of half chances they themselves scramble a ball into the back of the net from just a few yards out to make it 3-2.
The tension is building now with both the players and the parents and whilst it’s close in all quarters the game at times does become a little scrappy. Bromley though have learned from their opening day game where they let a strong lead go and kept calm towards the end. William with some cool headed passes and tackles at the back. Lewis playing not only in defence but also trying his hand on the wing at times as well as playing on with a foot injury. Riley was timing things well and disturbing the play in the middle of the park and Owen did not rest up either making it really difficult for them to make anything in the final third.
It was still end to end and what was great to see was that Bromley didn’t sit back and try to hang on they tried to play their football. They are on the attack again and they win a free kick on the edge of the box. The clock is on 57 minutes and this could really seal the victory for Bromley. Player of match Phoebe steps up and with a few strides strikes a strong ball into the back of the net. It’s 4-2 with just a few minutes to go and it remains that way until full time.
It was another great team effort from everyone and whilst we didn’t play the best football we know we can, we played as a team and more importantly held our nerve when leading. With the way the other results went it means that we are currently top of the league. Happy days and bring on next week.
Well done boys and girl.
MILCOL Under 7s keep up good run
At Headcorn, goals from Preston 2, Harry 2, Bertie 2 and Buddy brought another success (sorry, not allowed to publish surnames)
Globals v Dreamers
Ok Bromley green dream team 0- Bromley Green global 6. Goals from George x2, Daniel Vincent x3, own goal. George missed penalty for his hat trick at the end.
Player of the match for Global Daniel Ellis. Both teams played the game in the correct manner. Thanks to Damion for refereeing. Alex Hebbes.
Stating the obvious – the nights are rapidly drawing in. Please keep me notified of any change in training times. Thank you DH.
Friday morning update: thanks to the co-operation of Ernie and Ann-Marie, all our home matches will be played at Sandyacres this season. Full details will be emailed to all managers and admins later.
Probably the last competitive game at Waterside until next season at 10am on Saturday as the Dreamers and Global Under 9s face each other in an ADYFL fixture.. We obviously can’t switch away and we don’t want a fine. As it is an inter-club fixture, both camps know there is no running water or toilets; which would not be acceptable for visiting teams. The bulldozers are about to move in and safety will soon become an issue that we will need safeguarding advice upon. Anyway, should be a cracker and, in the middle officiating, will be Damion Truelove.
Meanwhile the Utilitas U13s are at home to Headcorn with an 11am start at Sandyacres and are expected to field two new signings.

Six more of our players have been invited to the Gillingham Academy for trials at Sittingbourne on Monday – so good luck and enjoyment to them
