Update Saturday night: DVS U!2 game called off by Margate
First result in: 1-1 Bromley Green Under 12s DJB v New Romney. Green goal an own goal.
Bromley Green Avery Hurricane U11 v TFD by David Bridge
Day began well with a new signing for Hurricanes with Harli Cook joining the team. The game itself didn’t start so well and going 2-0 down so quickly knocked the confidence. We didn’t really match up against them physically in the first half but battled back well in the second period.
Been a while since we had such a heavy loss but it is all a learning curve for the team. Individually, we had some good performances but PoM today was Charlie. He was outstanding at the back holding things together and driving us forward. Congratulations Charlie. Tough match today but good thing in football – there is always next week.
Tigers report from Chris Burden
The Tigers were unlucky not to get the positive result that they deserved away to Grasshoppers this morning.A superb defensive display by Billy Jo and Alfie (who started his first game) kept goalkeeper George bored and without much action. The midfield of Thomas Lee, Oliver Burden and Nathan Tookman kept the tigers on the front foot for most of the game .
Nathan almost gave the Tigers the lead with a shot that is probably still rattling the crossbar! Strength, determination and team work was on display by every player today, inspired by captain and last week’s PoM Tiana Wretham who led from the front and never ever gives up.
Both in defence and attack the tigers played outstanding today . They worked hard for eachother and displayed some moments of great team work and attacking play. Regan, recovering from illness, put in a workmanlike shift from the bench and Harry was a rock also driving through the middle. George showed some positive touches in the second half keeping our defence solid.
It was only bad fortune and a great volley that gave Grasshoppers the victory in the second half when Harry took the gloves from George for his first try between the sticks. Both keepers had little to do as the Tigers have indeed now started to roar and show their teeth going forward.
Player of the match was vice captain Billy Jo who organised the defence and won everything she went near. Honanary mentions to Nathan Tookman and vice captain Oliver Burden for their attacking threats and tackling back to help defend. They needed to be extra tough today and they both showed some great determination. Alfie Brown for his first start in defence and Harry Stickley’s first go on goal. Both Alfie and Harry showed the team what they are capable of and played very well in windy conditions.
Although the Tigers lost, the victory was very much deserved by the team . The comments by the Grasshoppers manager after the match showed their respect for how well our Tigers played . The Tigers will continue to roar louder each week and work hard for eachother. The victory will soon come.
