U13s McDonalds report from Damo Hatcher
Sellindge Sports and Social Club U13 v Bromley Green McDonalds U13
Today we played against Sellindge Sports and Social Club, who I would consider a very different side from the start of the season, the work on the training field that they must have put in is evident to see. The first half was a very even game, with both sides having equal possession.
We knew that when we came out in the second half we had to get a goal, which came from our captain Charlie Wren, within the first 5 minutes, shortly followed by a 2nd goal from the left footed shot of Ben Hatcher. This gave us the confidence we needed to go on and push for more. With some very nice link up play by our midfield, we went on to win 5-0. Fantastic effort put in by all who played today.
Opposition PoM went to Sam Spiers
Managers PoM went to Charlie Rivett
No luck for the U15s who struggled for a side due to the three league match rule and a mounting injury list. Eventually went down 2-1 to an own goal against Park Farm. Good luck to our opponents in the final.
11.30am update … U9 Globals impress again
Wye v BG Global. BG trying to keep unbeaten run going, came full of confidence and took an early lead through George, despite the early goal green didn’t settle down at all with the team struggling to make 2 passes, man of match Tyler Godden keeping the score in tact, Wye equalised with a bullet of a shot after green again giving the ball away and it was all 1 way traffic with Joey, Ethan and Tyler being the main players trying to stop the onslaught. Debutant Brad impressed with a hard working display where he almost capped his debut with a goal smashing the post in 2nd half. Game could easily have gone to Wye with both sides creating chances but unable to capitalise until Tyler Quarrie smashing a shot from distance through the Wye keepers legs with 8mins left to play. Wye created chances to equalise and Green could have scored again but for heroics from Wyes man of match keeper as well. Tight game but a good morning for the Green. Alex Hebbes
10.30am update … Under 7s in top form
Continuing their fine run, our Under 7s had a good morning at Mersham today. Buddy 1, Bertie 2, Lenny 1, Harry B 2 and a OG making up the tally. PoM went to Kacper in goal who was outstanding. the Little Green Army march on!

Bromley Green up to 2nd in the League
Pilgrims 0-3 Bromley Green DVS
⚽️Phoebe ⚽️Cameron ⚽️Jack
This was Bromley Green DVS first outing in the league since last year.
Starting the day in 3rd and with a game in hand aspirations are still there to go higher in the league.
Facing a Pilgrims team we played in the Cup a couple of weeks ago and dispatched off with an impressive 1-6 win we knew we would be in for a tougher ride today and that they would want to avenge that result and give a better account of themselves.
Pilgrims kicked the game off but we got on the front foot right from the off and much of the possession was in their half.
It wasn’t long until we were on the score sheet with a fine effort from Phoebe from the edge of the box , with a high shot that their keeper had no real chance of saving creeping in just under the bar.
0-1 and just how we wanted to start this game, playing well and scoring early. It was a stark contrast since we played them in the last game with the sun shining beautifully this time around and the conditions perfect for our type of game. As always with this Bromley green side , not only do they try to play the game and pass it but they match every team for effort and that was no different today. In possession they played the ball on the ground , passing and moving with some lovely play and out of possession we matched them or bettered their effort. Chasing down every ball and fighting hard by the younger team. There certainly was a entertaining tussle between James and their number 10.
Chances came and went but we weren’t quite as clinical as we can be however before half time and with some fine team play involving , Keane , Phoebe , Gerrard and Cameron we split their defense apart and Cameron slots one in from close range to make it 0-2.
There was some stand out skill and vision from Owen who received the ball and placed it perfectly into the space leaving his marker for dust running at them and creating a chance. On another day we would have scored from that. Owen was causing them problems.
A quick half time chat and the team get out early eagerly waiting for pilgrims to come out and start the second half.
We continued the second half as we had finished the first half playing our game and having more of the chances.
Some wonderful skill from Cameron playing on the left where he skimmed past 3 players with some superb skill and control to then played a great pass out to the incoming Gerrard who somehow managed to put the ball wide.
We kept going like we only know how though and when the ball came in from the right , Jack latched onto it and with a shot the looked to be going well wide but somehow bounced in front of the keeper and went in. It was a lovely worked goal and put us 0-3 up.
Having not had much to do all game Lewis had a run out in defense after being our makeshift keeper most of the game where he barely had to touch the ball. Jack the captain putting the gloves on to have a stint in between the sticks.
We saw the game out and that result and with Wye losing means we go second on the table on goal difference with a game in Hand
This is a fine restart to the season for this Bromley Green side , now second in the league and in the cup final. We couldn’t really have asked for much more.
Well done Bromley Green, roll on next week and the double header against Headcorn. John Butcher
Bromley Green Hurricanes U10s v Biddenden report from David Bridge
Squad : Ethan, Tyler, Nathaniel, Charlie, Alfie, Thomas, Sean, George, Owen and Ibrahim
The game started with an impeccably observed minutes silence from both sets of players . Biddenden started really well, playing some nice football and the team had to defend well to keep the scores level. We slowly began to play ourselves into the game but took the lead slightly against the run of play with a great team goal. Ball was swept out to the right before Thomas drilled in a inch perfect pass for Sean to sweep home. After that the team got a foothold in the game and chances came both ends.
Second half continued in the same way with Biddenden equalising with a great goal from one end of the field to the other. We didn’t let our heads drop and with chances to both teams, Ibrahim managed to edge us ahead, poking home after a scramble in the box. After that Biddenden pushed for an equaliser but some good defending and great goalkeeping by Ethan kept them out. A great game of football by both teams and a pleasing result to keep our run going.
PoTM difficult again with some good performances all round, however one player stood out today and that was Ethan. Outstanding in goal – brave, shot stopping and distribution all top of his game. Congratulations Ethan and the team on another positive result.
Dreamers praised by manager
So we played away against TSS we lost but that does not say anything on the game.
We kept it tight while creating our own chances with some great link up play.
The football was like a game of chess both teams didn’t want to let that goal in and for kids u9 to be so aware of a system was great to see.
We matched them really well and in end we were broke down , but it was an end to end game in last 10 with both going for the win.
Everyone who was there was all proud to be part of a great game of football, from the coach’s point of view to see that we matched TSS and had our own opportunities which credit to both goalies from both teams they kept the score level and both teams deserve a huge congratulation to make such a great game of football.
Well done Dream Team, keep this attitude and have a lovely weekend all deserve your rest, and me and Bobby look forward to continuing this great performance. Sent from my iPhone
