Thanks are extended to Brian and Michelle who raised another £178 with their raffle – well done! There are still some prizes to be claimed from the clubhouse (see list below). A mention too for our photographer, Courtney – thank you! And a visit from the one and only ‘Mani’ – once a Green boy, always a Green boy.

Tournament report – from Rob

Once again the boys put on a great display at The Kennington tournament on losing once in the group stages against a strong Kennington side there was some cracking goals to from Matteo and a superb strike from Harrison from just inside the halfway line but the quarter finals see us come up against a strong and well organised Rising Stars side and being on the wrong end of a 2-0 score line .well done all for taking part and to Kris for getting Player of the tournament. Cheers Rob 

Congratulations Josh – PoT for the U11s
Charlotte and Maria ready for battle

Tournament report from Timmy

First up Park Farm

The boys started well coming close with efforts from Kieran but we had to settle for a 0,0 draw Arilas great save at the end and great defending from Josh

Next up Grasshoppers A

We again defended well and again Arilas was great. Could have bagged a couple through Kieran and Aidan but in the end we narrowly lost.

The red game was great entertaining game end to end again we didn’t take our chances with so many shots on goal Sam was in great form in midfield but then Kennington caught us on the break great game.

Final game Wittersham 

We really went for this one with hope to go into the semis

Goals came quick Aidan notching 1; we then put Ben up front and it soon paid off setting up Charlie to make it 2-0 then Ben scored straight after before Aidan got his 2nd

Well done to all great defending, winning the ball in the middle and some good finishing and great goalkeeping from Arilas. Timmy

Claire and the lovely birthday cake

Robert Finn reports on last night’s cracker at Whitfield

Well done Alfie seen here with Richard … McDonalds PoM at Whitfield last night

Whitfield 6-5 Bromley Green (Matteo 2, Kris 1, Sam 2)

Tonight the boys had a cracking friendly with Whitfield a team we never played before it was end to end stuff and we took an early lead when Kris fired home a pass from Thomas 0-1 then we conceded 2 sloppy goals 
2-1 but just before the break we got level from a Matteo goal 2-2 second half we went for it but having 2 goals ruled out for offside seemed to unsettle the boys and from a corner Matteo put into his own net  3-2 then as we pressed we got caught out from a quick counter attack 4-2 but soon. after Sam scored 2 goals to level once again 4-4 but shortly after conceded a 5th 5-4 as the boys began to tire they grabbed a 6th 6-4 but the boys never gave up and Matteo got on the end of a pass from Daniel to make it 6-5 and right at the end Alfie could have levelled but hit the side netting final score 6-5 well done all that took part tonight it was a great game and well done Alfie getting PoTM.

Beer for Brian, Jack has eaten all the bread, the boys have demolished the chips and Candy is claiming the cake! Thank you to those who came back last night – great company.
