Into the weekend: Youth teams chase cup dream/Green drawn at home in the Bodkin Cup

Please remember to observe a period of silence or applause this weekend (Sunday senior kick offs are 11.05am)

Birthday greetings on Saturday to our very own Nsimba!

Happy 37th birthday to Bromley Green Valiants stalwart Nsimba

Dan Houghton will be welding the adult goals at 8.30am on Saturday if anyone would like to help him roll them over towards the clubhouse (for power reasons) … thank you

Don’t forget that Terry will be collecting for South African children on Saturday morning … we already have two boxes and two large bags of boots, garments etc from the rear of the clubhouse!

Tommy Habgood in line for sudden return to action
Making a welcome return to the football field (not soccer David S and Aidan Daniel lol) on Saturday is Tommy Habgood [left] after a three-year absence. Tommy, who last played for the club under the stewardship of his sadly-departed father, is expected to be in the U16s squad that makes the trek to Tonbridge Farm for a cup tie against Weald Wolves Red. Big blow for the Green is that skipper Conan Wyer misses out through injury.

Under 14s hoping to regain winning touch in the cup
Meanwhile, at Waterside, another important cup clash as the Under 14s entertain Biddenden (10am kick off). Narrow defeats and lacking a touch of Lady Luck in some recent outings have seen us drop valuable points; but on our day the boys are a match for any side and will be keen to have a decent cup run this term. Keeper Oliver B misses out through illness – get well soon. Likely squad: Bobby M; Oliver N Bell, Jake E, Igor B, Bradley R, Josh P,  Alfie T, Toby G, Elliot G, Kieran B, Freddie C, Diesel H, Charlie G, Jack C, Anuj P
(Please note I don’t do lateness … meeting time is 9am to get prepared … thank you, let’s enjoy DH)

Birthday greetings Friday to Diesel H!

Under 11s squad to visit Pilgrims on Saturday
Preston, Alfie, Josh, Sam, Thomas, Charlie, Harrison, Ben, Matteo, William, Kieran J, Keiran B?, Timmy

Bad news: Josh B, who has been in such fantastic form recently, has broken an ankle. Get mended soon mate.
