Saturday clubhouse opening time for this week only is 9.30am
Need a referee for Sunday Reserves home to Ashford Dynamo this Sunday 10.30am kick off … any volunteers please?
Lots of enquiries for Butlins 2019. These are the possible dates … there is the usual clash with one day off of school but in all the years we have been going, not one school has refused permission for our players to participate. Managers please give a yes or no within the next week please … that way we grab the early bird prices. People know whether they want to go or not so there is not point in prevaricating! This time round, everybody will meet at the club on the Friday at 9am and travel on the club coach – returning on the Monday after lunch. People just ‘doing their own thing’ dampens the whole adventure for the children. Of course, money is always important but if we work on a ball park figure of £150 pp as in the previous few years. There may have to be a small supplement depending on which venue is chosen and the cost of the coach. The Executive meets on Monday and it is hoped some of you will have contemplated the idea by then to give an idea of whether your team is intending to take part. Thank you DH

Top class entertainment between the Green and Grasshoppers
A real nail-biter at Waterside on Thursday evening as the Green Under 11s and their counterparts from Grasshoppers put on a stella display in a match that had everything. Goals galore with Matteo D (4) and Kieran B on target for the home team. Some promising displays with home keeper Josh B pulling off a string of fantastic stops. Well played both teams in a tussle that was a credit to the local league – and thanks to Neil Holmes for stepping in to officiate at short notice.
Summary from Rob Finn
Tonight we welcomed Grasshoppers to Waterside which was to be an entertaining match with both sides showing some quality football in all areas of the pitch. But 4 goals from Matteo and 1 from Kieran B was enough to snatch the victory and make it 2 wins out of 2 in pre-season games. A great performance by all that took part and player of the match on this occasion goes to William for his work rate on the pitch. BGFC Voucher at the next training session Will!
Well done Alfie!
Well done to everyone that played and trained on Thursday and didn’t wimp off due to a drop of rain … great atmosphere and thanks to Phil Dookhun who stood in to take the U14s training. Really impressed with the U16s commitment to get match fit this season … Ryck really must dislike the lads to torture them like this! Welcome back from vacation Frankie and Conan!
