U13s second half comeback too little, too late as victory run comes to an abrupt end at the Rabbit Hole
Quietly moving up the table … Wills boys do it again at Sandyacres with 4-1 victory
Under 18s report from Will Lines
Bromley Green 4-1 Chartham
A superb team performance showed off by a great scoreline. From the moment we kicked off our intensity was high and the chances started with us getting in behind often early on. We took this fast start and took the lead early on with a brave goal by ilja to put us ahead within 10 minutes. We continued to be on top for much of the first half with us just missing the final ball. A free kick from about 35 yards out allowed for Ethan to double our lead with a cracking pile driver. We finish the first half 2 goals up.
Second half comes and Chartham start strongly causing us problems early on. A couple of great saves from Kai was unfortunately let down when a free header at a corner allowed for Chartham to claw one back. As the half wore on, and tempers fly, Chartham get a player sent off and another sin binned in the same incident. Leaving them down to 9 men, which opened up the space and allowed for Nelson to score a third which gave us the breathing room that we needed. Back on comes the sin binned player who now gives away a penalty for an off the ball challenge to Ilja allowing Dan to round off an impressive display with a 4th and the game won. Tempers fly again with another sending off after a late challenge on Dan from the same player. A great game where the boys played with grit and intensity but also a cool head and controlled the game with only a 10 minute period of looking shaky. Player of the match was Ilja who run their back four rugged all game and led the line great today. On to the next one! Thanks Will
Winning run comes to an end for the U13s Pirtek squad
Not a performance to remember on a sloping pitch at the Rabbit Hole in Barham with the final scoreline of 4-1 reflecting arguably our poorest display of this disjointed campaign. Early exchanges saw us compete and go close through MJ but glaring gaps and a lack of marking saw us 4-0 behind at the turn round. Our hosts had two tall centre backs that dominated – so often the case in this age group where physicality clearly stood out as the main difference between the two sides. If any consolation is needed, we took the second period with our single goal from Danny-Lee Watts. The afternoon began with one player not showing at all – not good enough sorry – and the day ended in disappointment. Onto training Thursday … can we all be on time at 6pm please? Next week we are at home to Faversham Strike Force Lightning at Sandyacres and full details will be given at training and emailed out as usual. DH
Should be an interesting Sabbath with all three teams in action today expecting a stern test. The seniors will be hoping to continue their superb run in the Sheber Cup when hosting Burton Grove at Sandyacres (10.30am). At 2pm Will and the Under U18s entertain Chartham Sports in the EKYL while the Under 13s Pirtek squad go the Rabbit Hole at Barham to face a revitalised Barham Youth side (2pm).

Under 12 McDonalds report from Raymond Barker
Bromley Green 5 – 2 Wye Juniors
Bromley Green completed the double over Wye at Sandyacres. Goals in the first half from Oliver Burrett (2) and Daeyaan Naunkp. Some slack marking allowed Wye to score twice before half time giving the Green a 3-2 lead at the break.
In the second half we played some excellent passing football to set up Harley White and Oliver to score to complete his hat trick. An overall good team performance. McDonalds PoM went to Harley for some excellent defending. All credit to Wye for an excellent sporting game.
Several players have vouchers to come – lets present them on Tuesday evening at training please – DH
Utilitas gallant effort pleases Timmy
Today we finally had a starting 11 and played 2nd place South Ashford What a great performance after going 2 nil down. Goals from debutant MJ and Qrez bought it level at 2 -2 and, if we had the 2 players who were missing, we could have gone on and won it. Oscar had 1 disallowed and, as we started to tire, the opposition netted a couple more goals towards the end. We finally went down 5-2 – but what a great team performance. Well done all. Player of the Match was birthday boy Josh.
Under 14s Skoda Caffyns report from Grant Turner
Today saw BG U14s take on Hythe at their ground, we had 12 players including debutant Hossam who has only had 1 training session with the team with 3 senior players out due to injury and a birthday. Both teams started brightly but with 25 minutes gone BG found ourselves 2 nil down and Jamie our goalkeeper picking up a knee injury which forced him off. Riley stepped up and tool over as keeper leaving us with a bare 11 players.
BG kept working har and at half time it was 4 nil. The team continued to press and give everything they had in the second half but with the team tiring Hythe put us to the sword. Final score was 12 nil. Hythe chose Chelsea as their player of the match. As for mangers player I chose Riley, as he stepped up into a difficult position which is not a position he plays, he gave it his all and kept the teams heads up with his communication and motivation. We’ll done to both Chelsea and Riley. As manager I know the score is not the best but I can’t fault the effort, desire and motivation of the team today they gave everything they could and I can’t ask for more than that so well done to all those players playing today I am proud of the effort you put in.
Early reports … and it is good news with Hurricanes, Dreamers, Global and MILCOL impressing
Bromley Green Hurricanes U10s v TSS
Squad: Ethan, Thomas, Tyler, Charlie, Owen, Sean, Ibrahim, Louis, Alfie , George and Nathaniel
Another entertaining game of football against some old friends at TSS to continue our great return to action. The game started quite slowly for us and we quickly fell behind to a TSS team playing some really good football. The team had to stay organised and defend well but we went further behind to a good move from a TSS corner. However, this team never let their heads drop or give up and started to get a foothold in the game. Started to play as a team and Sean played a great through ball for Alfie to run in on goal and calmly stroke the ball home to get us back in the game
After half time the game continued in the same manner with the defence having to hold firm but always a threat when we attacked. A nice repeat of the first goal resulted in another clinical finish by Alfie to pull us level. The game was then end to end but the team stuck together and Tyler smashed home a free kick from 40yds to take the lead. Some outstanding goalkeeping again from Ethan and resolute defending from the team, we finished the game strongly.
Some good performances all over the pitch but POM went to Alfie today. Worked hard to hold the ball up, linking up the play and his two goals – well played Alfie. Well done Greens – continuing our successful run in the return to league games. David Bridge
Global and Dream Team summaries from Alex and Tony
Comfortable game for BG Global away to Rhinos with goals from George direct from a corner, Dan V x2, Bradley and Edwin. Dan V was unlucky to not get a hat trick with a free kick that cannoned off the bar. Bradley also hitting the post twice. Green were largely untroubled at the back, much better performance. Player of Match was Daniel Vincent. Alex Hebbes.
Hi Dave So we played away against Park Farm Colts This was a game where we controlled it from start to finish, the kids are definitely now a team with identity and are learning to play to their strengths. We took a deserved lead into half time, before being pegged back when Kai tried his best at being a defender, which he is not – but he tried! Then as we got our defence back settled and the players back where we needed them, the team found the next gear and scored a couple more. Great team work and most of all some happy children enjoying their football. Goals Kai x 2, Bubba x 1. Tony Nelson.

Updates … seniors win again in Sheber Cup, U13s EKYL win handsomely … waiting for U18s result
U13s Pirtek EKYL report from Richard Hawkins
U13 Pirtek faced Cheriton Colts at a blustery Waterside today. The conditions made fluent football difficult to play and the first half was quite scrappy as the boys tried to play their way around the opposition who sat deep in numbers. The team have, thankfully, rid themselves of the habit of conceding early goals. Indeed, it was the Greens who struck early, courtesy of a corner from Thomas Hawkins that curled straight into the goal.
The boys quickly doubled their lead when Gabriel Mika struck first time from a fine Charlie Bryant through ball. The opposition broke out occasionally, but Josh, Rieyaan and Henry worked well to close out the midfield. Josh was particularly strong in his new CDM position and was faultless in his distribution.
Ben made it 3-0 with an effort from wide on the left. 3-0 at half time.
With the wind against us in the second half, the boys tried to keep it on the grass and started to make their passes count. Two further strikes from Preston made it 5-0, but many more chances were created and the boys will need to take these against other teams.
Solid performances at the back from Archie, Harrison and Austyn. Harvey had very little to do in goal, but kept his concentration and distributed the ball well.
A sporting encounter against a team who were a credit to their club.
Hopefully the team will take the confidence of 2 wins on the bounce into next week’s encounter with in-form Barham.
MOTM was Josh with a great midfield display.
Well done boys. Let’s keep playing this type of football.
Birthday greetings today to Khaled Zureiqi … and Man City won Khaled!
Two goals from Alfie Glendinning saw us to a best of three goals victory to get our Saturday going again after the depressing lockdowns

Match summary by Grant Turner
BG U14s played Park Farm today. Both teams observed a minutes silence before the game. BG fought hard against our old friends but by half time BG U14s found themselves 2-0 down.
We kept fighting hard in the second half and had a couple of chances. Xander scored a wonderful goal putting the ball in the top right corner. Unfortunately this was a consolation goal and Park Farm ran out 5-1 winners. New player Kayci had a good game and is settling in nicely. PoM as chosen by Park Farm was Hozan.
Several reports still to come … including the seniors, who defeated Lenham Wanderers Reserves 2-1, U16s who took an early lead against Wye through PoM Kiran Bailey and a double-header for the U12 McDonalds at Rye. For Sundays fixtures, please refer to the 2021 Events & Fixtures page.

U13s McDonalds report from Damo Hatcher
Sellindge Sports and Social Club U13 v Bromley Green McDonalds U13
Today we played against Sellindge Sports and Social Club, who I would consider a very different side from the start of the season, the work on the training field that they must have put in is evident to see. The first half was a very even game, with both sides having equal possession.
We knew that when we came out in the second half we had to get a goal, which came from our captain Charlie Wren, within the first 5 minutes, shortly followed by a 2nd goal from the left footed shot of Ben Hatcher. This gave us the confidence we needed to go on and push for more. With some very nice link up play by our midfield, we went on to win 5-0. Fantastic effort put in by all who played today.
Opposition PoM went to Sam Spiers
Managers PoM went to Charlie Rivett
No luck for the U15s who struggled for a side due to the three league match rule and a mounting injury list. Eventually went down 2-1 to an own goal against Park Farm. Good luck to our opponents in the final.
11.30am update … U9 Globals impress again
Wye v BG Global. BG trying to keep unbeaten run going, came full of confidence and took an early lead through George, despite the early goal green didn’t settle down at all with the team struggling to make 2 passes, man of match Tyler Godden keeping the score in tact, Wye equalised with a bullet of a shot after green again giving the ball away and it was all 1 way traffic with Joey, Ethan and Tyler being the main players trying to stop the onslaught. Debutant Brad impressed with a hard working display where he almost capped his debut with a goal smashing the post in 2nd half. Game could easily have gone to Wye with both sides creating chances but unable to capitalise until Tyler Quarrie smashing a shot from distance through the Wye keepers legs with 8mins left to play. Wye created chances to equalise and Green could have scored again but for heroics from Wyes man of match keeper as well. Tight game but a good morning for the Green. Alex Hebbes
10.30am update … Under 7s in top form
Continuing their fine run, our Under 7s had a good morning at Mersham today. Buddy 1, Bertie 2, Lenny 1, Harry B 2 and a OG making up the tally. PoM went to Kacper in goal who was outstanding. the Little Green Army march on!

Bromley Green up to 2nd in the League
Pilgrims 0-3 Bromley Green DVS ⚽️Phoebe ⚽️Cameron ⚽️Jack This was Bromley Green DVS first outing in the league since last year. Starting the day in 3rd and with a game in hand aspirations are still there to go higher in the league. Facing a Pilgrims team we played in the Cup a couple of weeks ago and dispatched off with an impressive 1-6 win we knew we would be in for a tougher ride today and that they would want to avenge that result and give a better account of themselves. Pilgrims kicked the game off but we got on the front foot right from the off and much of the possession was in their half. It wasn’t long until we were on the score sheet with a fine effort from Phoebe from the edge of the box , with a high shot that their keeper had no real chance of saving creeping in just under the bar. 0-1 and just how we wanted to start this game, playing well and scoring early. It was a stark contrast since we played them in the last game with the sun shining beautifully this time around and the conditions perfect for our type of game. As always with this Bromley green side , not only do they try to play the game and pass it but they match every team for effort and that was no different today. In possession they played the ball on the ground , passing and moving with some lovely play and out of possession we matched them or bettered their effort. Chasing down every ball and fighting hard by the younger team. There certainly was a entertaining tussle between James and their number 10. Chances came and went but we weren’t quite as clinical as we can be however before half time and with some fine team play involving , Keane , Phoebe , Gerrard and Cameron we split their defense apart and Cameron slots one in from close range to make it 0-2. There was some stand out skill and vision from Owen who received the ball and placed it perfectly into the space leaving his marker for dust running at them and creating a chance. On another day we would have scored from that. Owen was causing them problems. A quick half time chat and the team get out early eagerly waiting for pilgrims to come out and start the second half. We continued the second half as we had finished the first half playing our game and having more of the chances. Some wonderful skill from Cameron playing on the left where he skimmed past 3 players with some superb skill and control to then played a great pass out to the incoming Gerrard who somehow managed to put the ball wide. We kept going like we only know how though and when the ball came in from the right , Jack latched onto it and with a shot the looked to be going well wide but somehow bounced in front of the keeper and went in. It was a lovely worked goal and put us 0-3 up. Having not had much to do all game Lewis had a run out in defense after being our makeshift keeper most of the game where he barely had to touch the ball. Jack the captain putting the gloves on to have a stint in between the sticks. We saw the game out and that result and with Wye losing means we go second on the table on goal difference with a game in Hand This is a fine restart to the season for this Bromley Green side , now second in the league and in the cup final. We couldn’t really have asked for much more. Well done Bromley Green, roll on next week and the double header against Headcorn. John Butcher
Bromley Green Hurricanes U10s v Biddenden report from David Bridge
Squad : Ethan, Tyler, Nathaniel, Charlie, Alfie, Thomas, Sean, George, Owen and Ibrahim
The game started with an impeccably observed minutes silence from both sets of players . Biddenden started really well, playing some nice football and the team had to defend well to keep the scores level. We slowly began to play ourselves into the game but took the lead slightly against the run of play with a great team goal. Ball was swept out to the right before Thomas drilled in a inch perfect pass for Sean to sweep home. After that the team got a foothold in the game and chances came both ends.
Second half continued in the same way with Biddenden equalising with a great goal from one end of the field to the other. We didn’t let our heads drop and with chances to both teams, Ibrahim managed to edge us ahead, poking home after a scramble in the box. After that Biddenden pushed for an equaliser but some good defending and great goalkeeping by Ethan kept them out. A great game of football by both teams and a pleasing result to keep our run going.
PoTM difficult again with some good performances all round, however one player stood out today and that was Ethan. Outstanding in goal – brave, shot stopping and distribution all top of his game. Congratulations Ethan and the team on another positive result.
Dreamers praised by manager
So we played away against TSS we lost but that does not say anything on the game.
We kept it tight while creating our own chances with some great link up play.
The football was like a game of chess both teams didn’t want to let that goal in and for kids u9 to be so aware of a system was great to see.
We matched them really well and in end we were broke down , but it was an end to end game in last 10 with both going for the win.
Everyone who was there was all proud to be part of a great game of football, from the coach’s point of view to see that we matched TSS and had our own opportunities which credit to both goalies from both teams they kept the score level and both teams deserve a huge congratulation to make such a great game of football.
Well done Dream Team, keep this attitude and have a lovely weekend all deserve your rest, and me and Bobby look forward to continuing this great performance. Sent from my iPhone
The boys done well should have won the far better side on the day but kept their heads held high after going down 2-1 to an own goal well done boys good cup run.
