Another weekend with no action – but let’s stay positive and conform to the rules

Executive statement: can all members please note that BGFC is strictly adhering to government, FA and Kent FA directives. However frustrating this nightmare is to all of us, we do not condone any attempt whatsoever to contravene the stated code of behaviour.

Design a shirt for the 90thanniversary

Are you artistic? Imaginative? Have a go at designing the front and back of a 90thanniversary shirt to form part of a new kit for one of our teams. Pictured is the 80th year shirt (replica of the original 1930 strip) purchased at an end-of-season auction by Lee Milton for a bargain £400 and on display in the clubhouse. Send your questions and/or ideas to our kit officer Leah-Ann Mooney at A sponsor for this one-off bespoke kit is sought and enquiries should be sent to After one season, the kit will be auctioned off and whichever team wears it will have a standard replacement the following season. Get drawing! There might be a prize for the winner – and a place in history.
