With no senior football today [Park Farm could not raise a side for the local cup tie] the focus is firmly on our youth teams. And what an enjoyable morning it was with all of our teams having some action after last weekend’s washout.
Top entertainment was provided by the Green U10s and our visitors Ashford Courtside Tornadoes; with both outfits deserving praise for their efforts and sporting approach. Brilliant double by Player of the Match Joe Clark. Manager Sid Hone was delighted and enthused: “The whole squad were brilliant today and can’t wait for the next match”.
Stunning goal by our U9s Player of the Match Henry
The Under 9s, sponsored by Key Auto Trade, hosted Wye and all respect to the visitors who showed much improvement from previous meetings. 5-0 to the Green [report can be read on the Match Reports 2015-16 page]. Player of the match went to Henry for his bravery and a stunning 20 yard goal. Big well done to the whole team!
A fantastic goal by Igor Blejwas wasn’t quite enough for the Under 11s who suffered a narrow defeat against Grasshoppers at the Marsh Academy. Green Player of the Match was awarded to livewire Elliott Grace. (Photos and report when they arrive).
U14 Colts really should have taken something from this game
Despite enjoying a large slice of possession, the U14 Colts slipped up 4-2 at home to Smeeth & Brabourne. Luke Clark was the Green’s Player of the Match; while leading marksman Callum O’Neill netted both for the Colts.
Win down the A28 for the Under 14s
Meanwhile, the U14s came through 5-3 after a real battle with third-placed Tenterden. Player of the match was Jack Petts with the goals bagged by Billy Harkness (2), Zac Cowley, Reece Blyth and Charlie Morse.
