Happy 7th birthday greetings today to Charlie K and former sponsor Jeff Nicholson
Football strategy meeting tonight 6.30pm and all managers, coaches, admins and Exec are asked to attend to share ideas as we plan for the future on the field. Can we have representatives please from all teams, both junior and senior?
Well, that was a weekend of ups and downs if ever there was one!
Firstly, a big thank you to all those who supported the clubhouse on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – either working or socialising and watching the big games on the box. After two years of relative depression, we are hopefully getting back on our feet again.
Some updates …
The Bromley Green U11 Avery Builders enjoyed a drawn match against South Ashford and lunch at Waterside before nipping down to Cheriton to watch Folkestone Invicta beat Bognor Regis Town by a single goal. Report from David Bridge to follow.
Emeralds gain another draw
The sun was shining as we faced the Anchorian Angels Diamonds at home today
After a hesitant start, the Emeralds found their feet and we equalised the opposition goal, finishing the first half 1-1.
We came out into the second half very determined and dominated possession, scoring another goal to go 2-1 up. The girls showed exactly how much they have all progressed, keeping control throughout the second half and making the Diamonds work hard to try and get the ball.
A win was within our grasp and the last 5 minutes was nail biting. Unfortunately the opposition scored within the last couple of minutes, the game ending 2-2.
However I am incredibly proud of the girls and they should all feel so proud of themselves. Well done to everyone and thank you to the Emeralds parents for helping set up before the game and clear up at the end of the game.
Player of the match is Hollie Goody.
Three goals from Ben but U13s GWS miss out in 9-goal spectacle
Bromley Green U13s GWS went down 5-4 away to Weald Wolves. After being 2-0 down it was a great fight back from the lads and, arguably, we deserved at least a share of the spoils. A well-taken hat trick from Benjamin Ojo and Liam O’Leary with a great left foot strike accounted for our goals. Special mention to captain Henry Barnes who controlled the midfield all game.
MoM went to Joseph Robbins for some excellent defending.
Home setback for U14s EKYL but we are still in the driving seat
Faversham Town, strong in defence, emerged 4-1 victors at Waterside although the scoreline perhaps flattered our visitors. A first half goal tucked in by MJ from a bar rebound kept us in touch but, despite plenty of pressure, we were unable to penetrate the Town rearguard during an evenly fought second period. Harrison Petken and Connor Heslop both did their jobs and the lads all gave maximum effort – but it just wasn’t our day; while a six week break clearly did not help. Next week we entertain Faversham Strike Force Hurricanes (2pm) in a bid to remain favourites to lift the title.
Results EKYL U14
Bromley Green 1-4 Faversham Town
East Kent FC 0-4 Faversham Strike Force Hurricanes
Ramsgate Orange 2-2 Cheriton United Colts
Briefly: Sunday firsts end with nine men and suffer 8-2 defeat after an impressive start, taking the lead against ACT favourites, Genclik on the Towers 3g. Alfie Glendinning netted both Green goals.
Solid all-round display by the DNS Sunday Reserves who defeated old friends Ashford Dynamo 3-0 with scores from Aaron Negus, Dan Churchley and Luke Couper. Well played both teams for a sporting encounter.
