Happy 84th birthday to Vice-President Jack Stafford!
Clubhouse open from 5pm today
Training as per the schedule (Events & Fixtures page) … I have asked managers to start early until the winter timings come into play … Nicole is going to use the lights while the MUGA may be an option for some? Spain v England on the box for those that fancy it later … cheers DH
Under 11s on Saturday
Manager’s summary of Sunday’s 6-0 victory over AFC Guildhall
Today’s game could have been a banana skin against an organised side. 30 minutes in it looked like a tough game as we missed a hatful of opportunities when on 35 minutes an 18-yard slice off Milton’s shin pad found the roof of the net.
This opened the floodgates as we quickly followed up with goals from Shrimpton and another 30-yarder from Gower. Second half saw two quick goals from the hard working birthday boy Ryan Ford. Finished off by a nod in header from Chopper Trott [left]. Man of the match went to Matthew Wedge who I think is growing up and not getting involved in unnecessary crap 👍🏻
Next Sunday the squad welcome new faces in the shape of Folkestone-based Nailbox for a Bodkin Cup tie. Our visitors will be buoyant after a thrilling extra time Kent Sunday Cup win away to Belle Vue yesterday. Kick off at Waterside is 10.30am and all support welcome.
The Sunday Reserves considered themselves very unlucky to come away pointless from their trip to The Ridge where they met high-riding Lolzors Reserves. Jack Hollamby netted for the much-improved young Green lads who also missed a penalty. The management team were delighted with the effort by the boys and the future is looking bright.
Next week the squad turns its attention to the Kent Sunday Cup with a visit to Mersham Reserves. Kick off is at 10.30am and meet time in the clubhouse is 9.15am sharp please.
