On the advice of Alex, tonight’s youth forum meeting is off. There is an abundance of flu, and indeed covid, throughout the club and he does not think it wise to spread the lurgi further. I will reschedule – sorry for any inconvenience caused and please spread the word. Thank you.

In view of the above, the clubhouse will not be open to the public this evening.

Under 16s defy the odds to win 6-1

With covid, injuries and holidays reducing his squad, Sid was delighted with the attitude of the Skoda Caffyns Under 16s who stormed to a 6-1 victory over our friends from Hythe. On target for the Green were Theo Batkin, Jacob Santer, Tony Scamp 2, Jack Matthews and Brentley Hone. Note there is no training this half-term week.

Wayne, Brentley and Sid

Have had the odd drink with these two!

The goalscoring legend Ashley Webster back in action today … with father Alan. Ashley and, yes, the boot cleaner which he helped sponsor with Tony Nelson … few memories of the odd drink with Alan

Park Farm Rangers 2-6 Bromley Green JJB

Bromley Green U12s DJB won 6-2 at Park Farm. After a flying start by the Green, going 4-0 up in 20 minutes, Park Farm then pulled one back just before half-time. Park Farm then started the 2nd half the better side and scored again to make it 4-2. In the last 10 minutes, Bromley Green started playing the football that has taken them to the top of the league – scoring twice more. Scorers: Oliver McRobert 3, Lenny Garcia 1, Jake Fuller 1, James Worthington 1.
Player of the Match Tyler Sorbie 

4-2 win for Utilitas U14s at Headcorn with scores from Danny-Lee (2), Charlie Bryant and Charlie Partridge

Well done Wisdom – our PoM at Headcorn today

Happy birthday to Kieran Hawkins

Clubhouse open from 8.30am

Good luck to all the teams playing this weekend … fixtures are on the Events & Fixtures page

On Friday, Jimmy Greaves was laid to rest. What an indictment that the media, especially the BBC, are more concerned with pumping their own warped agenda than celebrating the life of England’s greatest goalscorer. RIP Greavsie.

On the clubhouse TVs 12.30pm Chelsea v Norwich and 5.30pm Brighton v Manchester City

Need a volunteer for Tuesday 8pm at Harbledown Village Hall. We must be represented at the EKYL Secretaries Meeting. Please let me know if you are able to oblige. Thank you DH.

Winter training: Shane will confirm over the weekend exact venues and times

Reminder that on Monday at 6pm there is a Youth Forum meeting. Can all teams have at least one representative attend please and inform me of the name by Sunday evening – it does not have to be the manager.

Updates later …

Another week of toil, trouble and joy lol

Birthday greetings today to Jo Buss and Nic Szomjas

Thanks to Simon Harris and our local councillors, plus great friend John Murray, for visiting us today – great to catch up!

Massive well done to our helpers Katie, Jack, James, Jamie, Penny, Damion, Alex, Lee and everyone that supported the club

More bags and garments have arrived – list on Facebook from Ann and more arrivals to be posted on here later today

We are open today from 11am but closed this evening

It’s stopped raining! Thursday training is all on … at the moment!

When locking up on Wednesday evening, the MUGA resembled a large pond and the grass was decidedly wet! Fingers crossed that we can all train tonight and park at the weekend. Parking is now a real issue with the field too wet and the Swan Centre now resuming their activities after covid restrictions have been eased. Note, the Swan Centre car park is not ours – so we may have to begin parking sensibly around the roads. If possible, please vehicle share. Thank you.

Winter training schedule is still being finalised and will be published on Monday. No training is to take place on Friday evenings.

Friday daytime support needed

Reminder that on Friday we welcome locals and councillors to a Community Pop-in. Any help from members to promote our club will be welcome. Please let me know if you are interested, We need to be organised about 11am. Thank you.

Come and promote our club

Congratulations Alex

Where does all the money go? We often ask and here is an example. For the privilege of playing music on the televisions, we have to purchase annually a music licence! The cost is a cool £226.44. Worth every penny don’t you think?

So much to reflect upon that it is difficult to know where to start. But four out of four wins for our senior sides isn’t bad! Loads more images to follow …

Tommy – one of our PoM winners over a busy weekend

Faversham Town 3-4 Bromley Green

Ready in their new kit thanks to Michelle – the U14s travelled to Faversham and hit the top of the table

Opening up a five-point gap at the top of the EKYL table, our U14s overcame a number of obstacles before coming home with the three points from a 4-3 win. The result is, of course, important but the boys can learn much from this kind of unsporting environment. With Ben Hatcher and Derren Straker unable to play, a real test was always on the cards; but with nearest rivals Lyminge and East Kent sharing the spoils from a 2-2 draw, this afternoon could ultimately prove a pivotal moment in the title race. A first wearing of the Michelle Webb Childminding kit ended in success thanks to doubles from Danny-Lee Watts and Marcus Hodges. Player of the Match award will be presented after training on Thursday. Next Sunday we have a vacant date.

The sponsor and the captain!
