Clubhouse opens today at 4.30pm

Birthday greetings today to Peter Ripley and Syd Beal!

Note that ALL training, including seniors, is ON this evening at Waterside. U15s 6pm, U13s 6pm, Seniors 7pm.

Under 14s (Charlie’s team) are welcome to join the U15s this evening as so many players are still away on holiday or ill (6pm start)

Urgent message from Debby to Bromley Green Valiants

Still to complete junior registrations ( I know most of you have had a minimum of 4 requests via text/email, not counting the nudges on here, please help me get these completed on time).
(I will not be able to answer or respond to any football queries after Wednesday 16th.  I will be back at the ground on 3rd Sept to help with the friendly tournament and any outstanding adult registrations.  However, by this date, the deadline for junior registrations has passed for September’s tournament,hence the urgency around these and my concern around the waiting for responses)
Juniors still to complete – Alex, Ruben, Timi, Daniel
Adults – I am at training for a couple of Wednesday’s in September before your deadline but still waiting for Aaron S, Chris (photo), Calvin, Craig, Simon, Josh, Cam
I am not at training on Sundays throughout September.

Irene Stafford passes away

We have received news from Jack Stafford of the passing of former Green stalwart Irene Stafford. The club offers its condolences to all our friends in Australia at this sad time. Jack has sent this message:

I attach a few photos of Irene Stafford (Bob’s wife), including a photo taken at Bob’s last match with Bromley Green before emigrating to Australia. The match was an away game against Pluckley – the photo from left to right is my wife Mabs Stafford, Tom Stafford, Irene Stafford, Bob Stafford and Jack Stafford – the little boy at the front is Robbie Stafford who is Bob and Irene’s son – an only child. Bob was the secretary for the club and Irene was his trusty assistant. Bob and Irene kept in touch with Bromley Green FC via his brothers, Tom and Jack. Irene sadly passed away on the 12th August – now reunited with Bob, her beloved husband. The funeral is next Tuesday 22 August 2017.

  1. Thank you all for showing respect to Irene Stafford, mum spoke of her time at Bromley Green FC on many occasions and with great pride, often reflecting on the fund raising events, and those who took part in the restoration of Bromley Green FC and it’s continued success.
    From Rob (her son) and family
