Update: Bromley Green teams that had entered Broadstairs Event

Broadstairs Youth FC has folded all its teams which means the Baypoint Cup is cancelled as there will be no Youth Football Club to raise funds for. I have been asked by their club secretary to apologise on their behalf and hope you understand.

Clubhouse opens today at 4.30pm

Birthday greetings today to Mathew Baker and Dominic Sloan!

Reminder to everyone: it is Awards Day on Saturday with everyone welcome to attend all the sittings. Free entry to all members, friends and families. Bar and barbecue. For timings, please refer to the Events & Fixtures page

Message from Grant: can we please keep it like this

A big thank you to all those who helped with the Tournament weekend … fantastic effort and a special mention for our youngsters who did a multitude of jobs, including refereeing!

Brendan, one of six young Green players that did a superb job at the Tournament

Action from the Under 9s

Rob and the U9s on Saturday

Under 14s report from Rob

The boys played some great football on Sunday getting off to a flying start with a 2-0 win with goals from Conan and Ilja but came up against some tough opposition in the next game when Brendan headed home Conan’s cross. I thought we had the points in the bag but the boys conceded late in the game 1-1. The next game we was defeated by a strong Dover side and a draw against Dover Colts put us in a qualifying position but other results meant we needed to win the last game but went down 2-1 so unfortunately didn’t make it through. Player of the tournament today goes to Brendan for some great passing and a wonderful headed goal .
Regards Rob

Charlie who had a great weekend, both playing and refereeing

Early Sunday … getting ready for another busy day at Waterside

Under 9s report
Well done to the U9s yesterday, you all played well against some tough opposition but managed to win a couple of games and drew one and scored plenty of goals with Matteo netting five. Proud of you all!
Player of the tournament today goes to Matteo for his hat trick against Wye and some great football well done everybody.
Regards Rob

Bromley Green and Kennington U15s who featured in the final of the day with the visitors clinching matters in extra time. Great entertainment and played in a sporting spirit … well done both teams!

U15s report from Carl Hamilton

The boys started strongly and breezed through the group with goals from Cam (3), Max and Ryan. We were playing well and looking solid but had the unenviable task of facing our colleagues in the semis. I think it was fair to say that we were the underdogs against a extremely talented side. The boys started well and got a goal they deserved with Max lashing home. We had chances to extent the lead but just couldn’t take them. The talent they had they were always going to create chances but the boys battled hard and were superb defensively. They saw the game out to go through to the final where we would face Kennington.
The final was very even with both sides having chances. They went ahead in fortunate circumstance with the ball deflected into our own net. The boys showed amazing character and went straight down the other end to score a superb team goal which Louis finished off.  The game played out and we went to extra time. In extra time Kennington snatched the lead again and this time despite all the boys efforts we couldn’t find the goal we needed. I’m extremely proud of the boys today who were superb throughout. Well done lads!

Grant Turner reports from Waterside

Bromley Green fielded 2 teams in the under 10s tournament with Pat kindly taking the B team (report by Pat to follow). Thank you Pat for your help.
Bromley Green A was Jamie, Cameron, Orlando, Harry, Barnaby, Leo and Kieran Branch from the under 9s.
The boys played 5 group games winning 1 game and drawing 3 games with 1 loss. The team advanced to the semi-finals and in a thrilling game which was end to end came away with a 1 all draw which ment extra time. That came and went with no further goals so it was down to penalties. Unfortunately the team lost 3 goals to 2. There were a lot of positives from the tournament with all the boys playing very well, they did the club proud. Of note in the group games the game which we lost with a 1 nil score line was to Pilgrims ‘A’ who won the tournament and  they beat all the other teams in the group by at least 3 goals so our team did very well.
So from a very proud manager I want to thank the boys for all their hard work and also those boys and girl that played in our other team including Matteo and Bobby (Lisa’s daughter) who came and played at short notice.
Grant

Happy morning at Waterside

Excellent effort by the Under 7s

The U7s who performed so well today

I like to say I’m very proud coach  Under 7s in their tournament today they run their little Hearts out and and got better every game they played. Pat.

The weekend is here …

Getting ready for a busy weekend …

Planning for the tournament early doors!

Birthday greetings today to Miles Christian!

Have a great tournament weekend everyone … ground opens 6.30am with the clubhouse open for drinks etc from 7.30am. Please keep the noise down early doors out of respect for our neighbours.

Thanks in advance to all who help to stage the event, too many to mention, and please encourage our young referees as they gaining experience while officiating for the love of the game.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNDAY  TO LASHMAN (aka The Pizza Burner)

The ‘in’famous Lash pizza

Ashford Charity Trophy (Sunday section)
We have been drawn at home to Brewmaster in the first round … a tie which brings back many memories. The winners of that match entertain Ashford United Colts.

Friday 23 June 2017: Tournament this weekend

Looking forward to Tournament weekend, a reminder that registrations on both Saturday and Sunday are 0820 and 1300. Helpers please arrive from 0630 with gates open to the public from 0730. Duncan could still do with a little more help from referees … so do give him a call if you are able/willing to take up the whistle.

UPDATE: we have had an U12 side drop out this morning due to lack of players … any taker? Please email dhomewood@yahoo.com for a late entry … thank you. This means we can now accommodate one U8, U12, U13 and U15 side … but it’s getting late! Bromley Green Juniors Tournament is this Sat/Sun

Jordan part of a new wave of Green signings

Brian Edwards with new capture Jordan Osborne after training last night. Iden based Jordan is one of five new signings as the Green prepare for next season in the U15 division of the ADYFL.

* Under 14s
We go into Sunday with all 20 players expected to take part but the main objective is to gradually build for the new season. New signings already pledged to join our campaign in the ADYFL include Kai, Jordan, Sonny, Bart and Josh K. We are looking for friendlies, weekends or midweek, home or away. Please email dhomewood@yahoo.com … thank you.

* Under 15s
The shameful treatment of our U15s, leaving children with no football next season after years of building, should make all those that are fair-minded more determined than ever to do the right thing by youngsters – offering them an inclusive, safe and vibrant environment to develop as people and players. I am proud that this club can rise above such petty, vindictive, pernicious and discriminatory practice. These lads will be back after a year, playing in our senior sides; and then watch us go! Editor

ALL players should be on standing orders
Can all managers/admin please ensure all players are signed up to standing orders (and at the correct rate). If in any doubt, please speak to Dave Homewood as a matter of priority … thank you.
