Won 2 and drew 1 at the Pilgrims tournament

The Under 8s had an amazing time at the 4-way friendly tournament on Saturday morning, held at Pilgrims, Great Chart.  Playing against teams who have performed strongly all season (both against us previously and in their Leagues), our squad gave their best teamwork, working well together and staying strong through each of the 3 games. They won 2 of their games and drew the other and were unlucky not to have been the overall winners – eventually losing out to Park Farm Rangers on goal difference.  
Player of the Match goes to Leo, in goal.
We will be meeting up with PF Rangers, Biddenden and Pilgrims again over the next couple of months, at each of our respective grounds.
Next Saturday, we have been invited to a 4-way tournament at Pilgrims (with Biddenden and Park Farm Rangers).  First game kicks off at 9.15 so can we meet at the clubhouse for 8.30am.
Thanks Pat

Green U8s in entertaining mood
Report by Pat Penfold
The amazing Under 8s had an incredible morning, bouncing back from having an initial goal against them to produce the true BG determination to do themselves proud. There were 2 stunning goals from Joe, and 2 superb goals from Spencer, who got Player of the Match for his teamwork.  All the players played well in their first game of the New Year, despite the bitterly cold start to the day.

The under 8s enjoyed a great game today and they played well as a team and had fun.  They all tried their best.  Johnny and Spencer ran their little socks off; Ryan, Kane and Kyle also played well.  Jo took a solid penalty to produce the BG goal. Adam was Player of the Match for all the brilliant saves that he pulled off, truly keeping the squad in the game.

Debby Claber reports on the Under 8s first-ever tournament

Let's get ready to roll!

Let’s get ready to roll!

After being together for a mere 2 weeks, the Under 8s had their first tournament on Saturday 10th May.  A squad of 9 travelled to Wye, to play a total of 7 games over the afternoon.  Luckily the earlier rain had cleared for us, although the wind remained and was against the team in their games.  Despite this (and its attempts at blowing the smaller players over), our young players stayed busy (and mostly upright) on the pitch and their energy lasted throughout the afternoon – as did their smiles and positive attitude.

Coming up against so many teams, whose players have been together for so much longer than our youngsters, was not going to be easy.

10.5.2014 U8s PoM Wye TournamentHowever, everyone gave their best efforts and stayed enthusiastic and keen to do well.  After 6 tough games, the 7th produced a much-deserved 4-0 victory against Wye Juniors, ending the day on a high note.
Receiving medals following this kept everyone smiling and we ended with one young player announcing that this had simply been ” … the best day of my life!”
Thanks to all families who came along to support and of course to our players for a fun time.
Our picture show Jesse Trevor, the first-ever winner of our Under 8s Player of the Tournament  … well done!
