U15/16 Colts summary on 9-0 defeat at leaders New Romney

Not much can be said really! Down to 10 men in the 2nd half due to injuries – not ideal against a strong team like New Romney – MOTM trophy had been left at home by last times winner so will do that Tuesday night (Tobias Terry was this weeks winner). A bad day all round but I’m certain that players learnt something. Cheers Dunk

Sunday slip-ups for seniors and U15s

A painful day for the Green in the two local games on Sunday with the EKYL U15s never really getting going against Park Farm (losing 4-0) and the seniors virtually out of the title race after throwing away a two-goal lead at Aldington to end up on the end of a 3-2 defeat. James Haylock-Ashdown and Ryan Ford had seemingly put us on the way to a vital win but three goals in a few minutes proved too much to claw back. Aldington used the small pitch to their advantage, and ‘wanted it more’ … that’s what hurts the most. Still, at least the ten regulars, plus Ashley kindly stepping in, were there in one state or another. At the moment, no game next Sunday; but if it changes I will let everyone know. DH.

Under 13s report from Charlie Fletcher
Today we took on Pilgrims and the result didn’t go our way. We played well in the first half but second half lack of concentration cost us. It was a good game with some good performances in a game that we could have done better in. Brayden played well in mid as did Emmet. Man of match was Lennon and goal scorer was Tom B with Lorry putting in a good performance at the back. Result 3-1 Pilgrims.

Under 14s report from Rob Finn
Today we welcomed Tankerton to Waterside who we had never played before so didn’t know how to take them. The boys started the game strongly and took the lead when KIERON slotted home a pass from Conan 1-0 the boys kept pressing for more and was awarded a penalty which GIFT hit straight at the keeper and somehow managed to hit the post with the rebound but the second goal was soon to come when GIFT slotted home a through ball from Brendan 2-0 Jaden GIFT KIERON and lash all missed opportunities to increase the score but never took their chances well enough. Eventually the third goal was soon to come when KIERON pounced onto Lash’s pass and slotted past the keeper 3-0 the boys were in control of the game and five minutes before the break they got a fourth when a corner from Piotr was cleared but only to the feet of Brendan who controlled and fired a wonderful shot into the top corner from outside of the box best goal of the game 4-0. HT 4-0.
Second half I lost count on how many chances were missed in front of goal this has to improve for next weeks cup game. Some slack defending cost us a goal 15 minutes from the end 4-1 but with 10 minutes remaining lash done a little solo run and fired past the keeper 5-1 which was to be the FT score. They certainly made hard work of that game.
MOTM today goes to Conan voted for by parents.

Well done Conan ... Player of the Match in today's victory
