Training Monday as per the schedule on the Events & Fixtures page
Green stay top after crazy goal fest – but Brews remain the only unbeaten side in the top flight
Report from Gary Gibbs
What can only be described as a crazy game of football. On a day with gale force winds and torrential rain we started very positive and was dominating in all areas and the inform Luke burdon grabbing his hat trick in the first 15 minutes. Further goals from griffin and shrimpton saw us go in at half time 7-2 up. Second half was a sorry state of affairs with us taking our foot off the pedal and looking like we had had enough of the weather and just wanted to go home. A special mention for the inform Luke burdon who at the moment looks like he can score when ever he gets the ball and to Connor little who must of got kicked 30 times and showed his class by getting up and running the show. Well done boys let’s keep it going. Commitment is essential gents see you Sunday

Apologies for few updates recently but the server seems to have gone on strike … when trying to edit, especially adding photos, all I get is that irritating world spinning round on the screen. Proper round up and more photos as soon as possible. In the mean time, I will publish some more weekend images on the Bromley Green FC official facebook site. To become a member, just become friends with me!
Goals galore … but not all for us!
More details later but in summary: First team hammer Nailbox 10-7 (yes 10-7!); Reserves 2-0 ahead but draw 2-2 against Aldington Reserves; U18s suffer home defeat; and U12s Pirtek fight back arrives too late as they go down 7-4 against Woodnesborough at sunny Sandwich.
No Sandwich treat for U12s EKYL
Woodnesborough 7-4 Bromley Green Pirtek
Difficult to sum up this affair at Gazen Salts, Sandwich where Borough, with a couple of players clearly a cut above the rest, dominated the midfield and produced penetrating forward thrusts, were deserving of their victory. But from our viewpoint, lessons were (hopefully) learned and a stirring second half display left us in a positive frame of mind after what can perhaps best be described as a disjointed opening thirty minutes.
The value of using both feet was illustrated when Thomas Hawkins fired home beautifully with his left foot to give a 1-1 scoreline. However, by the interval, the home side had darted into a 4-1 lead as we were ripped apart for pace with the midfield at times overrun and the back line struggling to keep tabs on the raiding Borough forwards.
Brian Petken and myself asked for a bit more drive and urgency and credit to the players who responded with three second half goals from Henry Barnes, Kieran Branch and Ben Hatcher. Had we started in the same fashion as we ended the match, who knows what might have been the outcome!
Harvey Prior gained the Player of the Match accolade for his brave debut between the sticks … he is raw with oodles to learn but will be fine … it is about belief. Let’s remind ourselves that eight of the players that were to form the bedrock of this squad have dropped out for one reason or another. Full credit to those who have stayed, and welcome to the three lads playing a year up. I am an advocate of ‘No pain, no gain’ and a number need to work seriously on their fitness levels to do themselves and the team justice.
My thanks to Spud and Caz for help with transport and James Branch for running the line; plus of course the parents for their valued support. Noticeably, every single player returned to the clubhouse – so it can be done even when playing miles away. We will reflect upon this afternoon as our cup being half full, not half empty. Roll on next Sunday when we travel to meet Faversham Strike Force Hurricanes (meet in the clubhouse 12.30pm). Thank you and well done everyone! DH
Green: Harvey Prior; Ben Hatcher, Preston Webb, Harrison Petken, Thomas Hawkins, Elizabeth Monday, Kris Kostova, Henry Barnes, Liam Monk, Josh Bailey, Kieran Branch.
