The weekend is here … with Ellicon Construction and Miki Travis

Saturday night updates … more to follow …

Under 11s lovin’ it … Under 12s buzzing

The BGFC Under 11s at their sponsors McDonalds today
Superb performance by the Caffyns Skoda Under 12s today with Orlando winning the Player of the Match award

Today I had the pleasure of taking a great bunch of boys the u12s for their away game against Pilgrims. The first half was touch and go but in the second half the boys seemed to pick up the pace and work as a team. A big well done to Kayden and Thomas our new recruits; for their first games they played brilliant. The match ended up with the boys winning the game. Goals from Steven Brown and Hayden Wright. It was such a pleasure to coach a superb group of boys today and a big well done to Orlando Caka for getting player of match chosen by parents. Brian Edwards

The Under 16s went down 4-0 at home to Rye Bay and now need to pick themselves up for next week’s home match with Weald Wolves Red (11am).

With no less than four opponents dropping out today, some teams had a rest but the U9sDVS and U9 Colts took the opportunity to stage a friendly. A big victory for DVS but Ilir and the lads deserve credit for battling all the way and their time will come as they gradually rebuild.

Clubhouse open Saturday and Sunday with DH at 8am

A busy weekend beckons, albeit reduced somewhat by the number of cancellations for various reasons on the youth scene.

Just a reminder that all members representing the club at external venues are to follow our Code of Conduct at all times and misbehaviour could result in disciplinary action. We have had reports of inappropriate language and adults parking in disabled bays … please let’s all uphold our good name.

On Saturday, football-related vehicles do have permission to park in the Swan Centre car park as a one-off; but please park sensibly in both car parks.

Garment sizes required please

Some members are waiting a long time for garments … there have been supplier problems with t-shirts but most of the hold-ups are due to the fact that sizes have not been entered onto the BGFC Membership form. Without sizes, we obviously cannot order. Therefore, can the following please confirm their garment sizes with Dave Homewood by email to by the end of the weekend:

Alex Barr, Vincent Percival, George Wright, Kieran Jenkins, Adrian Faltinski, Ronnie Judge, Alfie Judge, Sam Ifeakor, Leo Downing, Sam Haines, Jake Brown, Callum Bishop, Rylan Brazier, Jacob Rosier, Alfie Glendinning, Aidan Tree, Freddie Janes, Harvey Prior, Kodi Theobald, Ali, Amin, Tommy Taylor, Thomas Johnson
