Once again, we enter the weekend with the main topic of discussion being the elements as heavy showers are predicted during today and Saturday with the obvious threat of ruining what promises to be a football fest

One bonus is that we have the use of the Swan Centre car park by kind permission of our partners at Waterside … so please park sensibly

Sunday sees a real cup test for the U18s who are away to Deal Town Rangers while the U12s are in EKYL Cup action, away yet again, against Thanet United Colts. The BG Girls are in top form and will be looking to continue their fantastic run when going to Ex-Blues (12.15pm).
For our Sunday Reserves, still cautiously eyeing a promotion place, attention turns away from the league to the Divisional Cup when they travel to the Moat to face Charing Reserves (10.30am)
Good luck to Nick Cook, partially recovered from his injuries, as he takes his small BGV Juniors to their tournament on Sunday morning. A big thank you to Damion Truelove for standing in during Nick’s incapacitation.
