Thanks to all those who toiled on behalf of our club over the weekend. The weather put a bit of a damper on things (literally) during Sunday afternoon resulting in the pitches looking the worse for wear. Request from ground staff – can managers please consult with Grant or Damion before contemplating home friendlies until the ground dries up … thank you.
Busy week coming up starting with the Executive Committee meeting on Monday at 6.30pm. Please keep Shane and myself informed of any training amendments.
Getting ready for September!
Simon Oldfield reports from Sittingbourne
Today BGFC Emeralds Girls travelled to Sittingbourne to play our penultimate game of the season against Sittingbourne Ladies, confident after a string of recent great results.
The squad was small with only 9 players available, so we were unable to make any substitutes against a strong team that had 6 substitutes and plenty of fresh legs during the game.
The Emerald Girls gave their all with Ruby L scoring a goal in the first half. But the girls unfortunately were unable to match the fresh rotation of opposition players and the match ended as a 8-1 loss for us.
The girls were tired and a little disappointed; however, they gave their all but today was just not our day.
