Information note for U11s parents
U11s: you do NOT have to provide food after the Games on Wheels Bus on 19 December. This has NEVER been stated by the Club. It is £10 to help towards the Bus cost and all food is provided free afterwards by the Club. This will include pizza, chips, sweets, soft drinks etc. Karen is in charge of the U11s Bus money. It is that simple folks. Presumably some are confused with this Saturday’s party … where parents do provide some food. If people read this official forum rather than rely on misinformation, perhaps there would be more harmony. Note U11s are too old to sit on Santa’s lap although several parents are kindly helping out with food and during the afternoon. The parties this Saturday are 2-4pm for the U6, U7 and U8 groups; for the U9 and U10 groups the time is 4.30-6.30pm. Thank you Dave Homewood

BG Valiants Adult C team tournament report by Debby Claber
This tournament felt a bit disjointed across the morning for all of us. We got off to a great start in our first game, with the squad working well together and communicating between each other. Unfortunately this didn’t last throughout the rest of the morning and was probably reflected in our results – which weren’t all bad (as I’m aware this isn’t sounding like our usual positive experience at tournaments!) We ended up with a mix of the win, draw and losses. We had the initial win, with a fantastic goal shot in from some distance away by Paul. Adam was unlucky several times before he finally found the back of the net; Gemma was her usual consistent self, being determined in defence; there also needs to be a quick mention to Mat, who didn’t set his phone to silent this weekend and did well for us in goal. Luckily the teamwork reappeared for our last – and possibly hardest – game of the morning against Charlton and the communication on pitch reappeared. Player of the Tournament this time is Paul – partly for his goal (getting us the win too) but also for remaining positive and supportive of the squad throughout the morning.
Stars of the weekend: undoubtedly Alfie and Phoebe Collier who gave readings at the Community Carol Service yesterday. Big thank you to Maria and Charlotte for support.
Clubhouse opens Monday at 3.30pm
Please refer to the Events & Fixture page for what is on today
Due to the U10s DVS and U11s having another friendly, there is a space that we are paying for at Pitchside tonight if any Bromley Green manager wants to grab it 6-7pm. No need to inform me as I will be at the club but seems an ideal opportunity perhaps for one of you youth managers to slot in an extra session? DH
Bromley Green Valiants ‘B’ four wins and a draw – brilliant effort!
Super Sunday for us again at the Abbey School and, due to some surprising results for other teams, our place at the top of the league has been further secured by increasing our points above Charlton. Great display from all players and player of the tournament goes to David for his super effort and overall results today. Well done and we complete this year on a high.
Single goal defeat at Broadstairs but boys are learning quick!
This week, with just 8 of our squad not available (yes 8!) for the trip to play Ramsgate Stars, the boys put up a tremendous show, missing out by a single first half goal. Thomas, Kieran and William all went close for us in a superb second half display but it was just one of those days … not helped by having no changing facilities or toilets which is a disgrace for this level of football with kids having to change in the car park. But the lads are on a learning curve and in the long run they will be fine. Harrison and Harvey in goal caught the eye with Ben and Keiran deserving of the Player of the Match awards. Thanks as always to parents who supported.
Green: Harvey Prior; Ben Hatcher, Harrison Petken, William Spiers, Reiyaan Naunko, Charlie Ward, Henry Barnes, Keiran Branch, Thomas Hawkins, Josh Bailey
Next week we are on the road again, this time to basement outfit Monkton and the following Sunday we have a chance to turn the tables on Thanet United Colts. Training on Thursday is back at Kingswood 6pm and please bring footwear suitable for the hall and the hard court (it is not astro but a concrete surface). Damo will meet us at the side gate 5.45pm … thanks Damo!
