Monday morning … sponsored by KC Scaffolding

Clubhouse open from 4.30pm today with all scheduled training ON

Executive meeting at 7.30pm

Wins for seniors and U15s EKYL round off a busy weekend

Bromley Green 3-0 Ashford Spartans
natural-hair-1Frankly, this was not a particularly impressive display by the lads who missed a host of chances; although, in fairness, the Green were thwarted by a series of superb saves by visiting keeper Jamie Kriehn. Three points but a lot of thought needs to go into why we sometimes seem so sleepy on Sunday mornings … maybe it’s the excesses of Saturday nights! Goals from Cameron Lumsden, Levii Loyza and Kurtis Hooper proved sufficient in the end. On to next week when we go to Swan Lane for another tough test against Stour Valley. If you can make training on Tuesday at 6.30pm, please do so. DH.

Harris two as Green U15s win 5-3 away to Betteshanger

Fantastic win for the U15s today at Betteshanger ... well done Jack our PoM

Fantastic win for the U15s today at Betteshanger … well done Jack our PoM who received his BGFC voucher from Vice President Mark Day

Goals from Cameron Bruce, Ryan Harris (2), Ollie Heard and Reece Blyth earned a 5-3 victory at Betteshanger today. Well done boys!

Report from Sean Phelan
Our 2nd visit to Betteshanger in as many weeks. We lost the previous game, a cup match, 6-1. I told the boys at the time we could beat this team as we had played the better football but couldn’t seem to manage their long ball game and two very speedy strikers.
This match was still even after the first 15 minutes with us just edging it when they went ahead from a corner. Unlike last week the boys heads didn’t drop and we continued to battle. Reece came on after 20 mins and 10 mins later brought us level, latching onto a through ball and smashing it into the roof of the net. Half time, 1-1.
Betteshanger went 2-1 up within 5 mins of the restart but Ryan put us level 15 mins in. They took the lead once more but we were soon level thanks to Cam who had a very strong 2nd half. A quarter of an hour to go, end to end football and you knew whoever scored next would probably win it.Ryan scored his second and our fourth and then we seemed to be constantly attacking. Captain Ollie scored a headed goal from a great Kuba corner with less than 10 mins to go. 3-5 the final score.
A great team performance with each and every player at their best. Much more unity today and when a mistake was made (as every player in every game will do) heads didn’t drop, instead they just battled harder and played for each other. Olly was superb in goal despite having to come off for 10 mins following a typically brave save. The back 4 of Jack P, Alex, Angus and Jack H ha another solid display and the midfielders Ollie, Lenny and Josh really got stuck in. Kuba and Louis out wide put plenty of crosses and through balls into the box and this is where I think we can really hurt teams.Each of our strikers, Ryan, Cam and Reece, got onto the score sheet today and deservedly so.
Man of the match was Jack H for a great display, constantly running the length of the pitch to give us width and extra numbers in attack. Well done to you all. Sean.

Report from Martin Wirt, U15/16 manager ADYFL
This week we was up against Marsh Youth. We had not played against this team before so we could not underestimate them. The team started off quite well and it wasn’t long before we took the lead with a goal from captain Billy. Jack.B soon added another to put us 2 up. Klaidi was forced off after a bad tackle which made him miss the rest of the game. Kuba got two goals before halftime, one being a lovely long range shot. So we went in at the break 4-0 up.
5 minutes into the second half Kuba got another to claim his hat trick. Billy and Jack both scored again and Charlie got himself 2 goals as well, to make the final score 9-0.
I was very pleased how the boys played in this game especially in the second half. I think the were some of the best team goals I have seen from the boys and the passing and the movement was excellent. Keep up the good work boys.
