Gary Gibbs reports on today’s Kent Premier Cup victory over SIMLA
Today we entertained a very experienced Simla side. Starting with only 11 men and no subs due to work commitments and holidays it was going to be tough. But we started all guns blazing and with Pat and Luke linking up well Luke grabbed a super hat trick within 10 minutes. Simla pulled one back on the half hour mark to show that we could not switch off. After the break it was more of the same with the whole team putting themselves in front of the ball and defending superbly. Luke claimed his 4 and 5 with Simla wondering how to handle him. Connor Little went for a 50/50 tackle and came out worse off breaking bones in his foot. With only a few minutes on the clock Pat broke down the left to pull the ball back to the edge of the box to find Shrimp who calmly slotted the ball in the bottom corner – hard and low. Another great team performance. Keep it going lads and a successful season lies ahead.

U12s EKYL win sporting 7-goal thriller 4-3
Another EKYL match that was compulsive viewing – no-one can claim we are boring! Fortunes ebbed and flowed but in-form midfielder Preston Webb was inspirational and his opportunist hat-trick epitomised the massive learning curve the squad is on. In recent games I have witnessed Thomas smashing home with his left foot, William thundering in a header and today Preston firing home hard and low – these are not accidents, they are tangible examples of improvement through training. For good measure, Kris Kostov made the most of a defensive mix-up to complete the tally and ensure maximum points. Great stuff from all the squad and thanks to Faversham Strike Force Lightning for joining us afterwards, referee Alicia and linesperson Cameron … well done everyone!
Green: Harvey Prior, Ben Hatcher, Harrison Petken, Thomas Hawkins, Charlie Ward, Preston Webb, Henry Barnes, Rieyaan Nuanko, Keiran Branch, Kris Kostov, Elizabeth Monday.
Next week we have another tough away match against Faversham Town (meet 12.30pm sharp in the clubhouse). Training 5.30pm Thursday please for everyone as there is now real competition for places. I will be arranging day time training sessions during the half term and all are expected to attend. DH
Bromley Green U14 Girls Cup Success by Steve Sutton
The U14 girls were away to Anchorian Hearts in the Winston Cup, rearranged from last weekend.
The rain held off till the second half but a strong cross pitch wind hampden some of the play but the girls start off with the wind in there favour. The game was tight and stilted but on 15 minutes the girls broke the hearts line and Chloe was pushed wide, but superbly finished from a tight angle.
3 minutes later the lead was doubled when Grace drove through the home team to coolly finish.
The scored stayed that way until half time.
The second half started similar to the first half but 8 minutes into the half the Greens had built pressure around the home team box when the ball broke through the defensive line, Grace reacted quickest slotting the ball home to give the final score of a 3-0 win to the Greens.
It was the first outing of the new kit sponsored by Willian Charles Hair dressing from Tenterden.
Joanne was the Bromley player of the day with Nicole earning the opposition player of the day
Good luck to all the teams playing Sunday and please park sensibly at the ground
Clubhouse open Sunday from 8am till 5pm
Fountain too strong on the day
The much-awaited return clash between the Green and Fountain was full of endeavour with the visitors running out deserved victors to the tune of 5-2. On target for the Green were Richard Floyd and Kai Friday. Keiron Smith was voted PoM by Fountain.
Happy Dreams! Report from Tony Nelson
So we travelled to Park Farm for an early kick off with the team were looking to bounce back from first defeat, which I am pleased to say we did with the best team performance to date.
All the kids played their socks off, and showed that as a team when all pulling together can perform very well.
The development was there for all to see and showed that playing the football and using movement off the ball they can create and enjoy themselves at the same time.
Very pleased with what we see happy coaches Tony & Damo.
Goal scorers Bubba 1, Kai 1 & Archie 1
Special mention to all the players Billie-Joe, Noah, Harvey, Kai, Bubba, Dexter and Archie; let’s keep playing kids – pleasure to watch well done to you all!
U9s report from Dennis Monk at the tournament
The Under 9s finished joint third was a good tournament but really bad refereeing that’s the reason we didn’t go through to the semi-finals. Not happy about this but the boys enjoyed the day Player of the tournament was George Welsby. First game we lost 2-1, second game 0-0, 3rd game win 1-0 and 4th lost 1-0.
U11 Warriors enjoy great game with Charing Whites by Dave Homewood
A sporting affair at Waterside with the Green goals coming from Harley (4), Joseph (2) and Henry (2). Credit to Sam, the visitors’ keeper, who pulled off a string of top class stops. Our Player of the Match was Joseph for his ability to ‘listen’ in addition to excellent work down the right flank. Shame that some had better things to do and let the squad down but the nine were fantastic. Well played everybody!
Green: Oliver, Reegan, Archie, Oskar, Harley, Henry, Jake, Joseph, Charlie
U12s McDonalds report by Rob Finn
Today we welcomed Park Farm Rangers to Waterside and what a cracking game it was with 12 goals being scored; including 4 own goals on our part! We started off strong and took a deserved lead when Sam fired home 1-0 but some sloppy defending we gifted Park Farm an equaliser 1-1. Then came the nightmare in the space of 15 minutes 4 own goals. HT 1-5. Second half we started the stronger side and pulled 3 goals back all coming from Sam with some wonderful strikes 4-5 the boys kept pressing for more and chances come but the opposition keeper made some fine saves from Daniel, Sam and Kris. Then as we pressed for the equaliser we got caught out with a counter attack 4-6. Then Sam hits the upright with a fierce shot but 5 minutes later Daniel fires home 5-6. This game was end to end stuff and could have gone either way but 2 minutes from the end we conceded again to make the final score 5-7. PoTM today went to Sam for his 4 goals and his overall work rate but well done to all players that played today. Cheers Rob.
