Martyn Smith reflects upon this morning’s U9s match at Waterside

Absolute cracker this morning v Ashford United up there with 1 of the best games I’ve seen for a while. Good passing, solid tackles and we kept great shape considering we are getting used to 7 a side. Both teams had great chances all through the game but both keepers kept it 0-0 till we lost our concentration in added on time. Great finish and we go down 1-0 but couldn’t ask anything more from the boys. Super and a big thanks to Tom and the Ashford boys.

Happy birthday Friday to Alfie … even though he scored a hat-trick against us last night!

Before we look forward to an interesting weekend of football, a big well done to all those who trained last night in what turned out to be ideal conditions with the weather behaving itself!

Newcomers are still arriving daily … so welcome to them. We can still take more  in our U8s (2 teams), U9s (3 teams), U10s (2 teams) and U14s. In the first instance, please email dhomewood@yahoo.com or text your details to 07761101988.

The perfect work-out for both sides as the Green entertained neighbours Kennington in a feisty Under 16 friendly at Waterside. In the end, the visitors won 4-2 but much will be learned by the home camp whose goals were provided by Jordan Osborne and Ilja Seleznovs. Ben Fuller took the accolade of the Green’s Player of the Match. On Sunday the squad welcomes Bearsted with a 10.30am kick off and there could be a return for Lorrenzo Baker but Charlie Ward is away on a long vacation.

Saturday seniors

Home to Woodchurch in a pre-season friendly. Players please meet in the clubhouse 1.30pm to prepare for a 2.30pm kick off.

Under 8 Colts

Grasshoppers are our visitors for a pre-season friendly and Pat will hope to have a full squad available for an 11am start

Under 9s

Martyn, Jeff and the Under 9s welcome Ashford United for a friendly with the kick off at Waterside set for 10am

Under 13s

Sid and the Under 13s are at home for what is bound to be a hard game against highly-rated Maidstone United. Players please meet in the clubhouse 9.30am for a 10.30am kick off at home.

Sunday seniors

First outing for the first team as neighbours South Willesborough are our guests. Kick off for Gary Gibbs and co is 10.30am

Under 16s

Home to Bearsted on Sunday with a 10.30am kick off in what will be a real test as the squad continues to take shape. As always at this time of the year, we have lads away on holiday; but that gives others a chance to stake a claim for a regular place. Conan Wyer, Frankie Cumpper and Charlie Ward are away but Lorrenzo Baker and Lennon Spencer both return to the squad. One departure is Kai Sutton and we wish him well at his new local team Rye Bay. Big thank you to Andy and Debbie who will be greatly missed. Players please meet 9.30am in the clubhouse.
