Happy birthday today to Oscar Barnas and Sid Beal

Also, respectful memories today as it would have been the birthday of the legendary Ken Holloway. Ken finished his successful career at the Green in his fifties and is the oldest player ever to play in a cup final for the club (at Essella Park). Hothfield, Energen (RHM) were amongst his previous clubs and I have this enduring memory of him carrying in a barrel of McEwans! Long gone, Old School, but never forgotten.

Clubhouse will be open today from 4pm with DH for meeting with Will. Penny and Damion will lock up after Peter’s training [Damion training 5-6 and Peter training 6-7]. Free snacks for both squads when they finish their sessions – parents do come in and chat while the children are training. I also have McDonalds vouchers for your PoMs.

Training as normal this evening at Waterside and external venues – if in doubt, please refer to the 2022 Events & Fixtures page

Sunday updates – All home games are off today … Emeralds at Whitstable Town

Simon Oldfield reports from Whitstable

Away day in Oysterland for the girls

Matt the assistant coach presented Lydia with the trophy

It was a rather cold morning as we headed to Whitstable FC to play our first match of the year.

Both teams put on a great performance and the Emeralds, who are still in their first season, showed just how much they have progressed in their playing so far.

Despite some fantastic saves by our goalkeeper Alycia and some good attempts by us on goal in the second half, unfortunately it was not our day and we lost 6-0.

However, as a team the girls are growing in confidence, and we now look forward to our home game next weekend. 

Player of the match is Lydia Abraham 

Green on the attack at The Belmont

Clubhouse is closed today as all activities [except Junior Valiants training @11am with Ray] have been cancelled by the groundsman. Roll on summer.

All home games are OFF today as the pitches are unplayable after yesterday – sorry, but nothing our groundsman can do about it. Please make sure opponents, referees and leagues are made aware.

Ray Barker and the few Junior Valiants can still train but please keep away from the pitches … thank you

One team who do have action today are our U12s Emeralds Girls who are away to Whitstable Town in the KGLFL

Saturday last knockings … into Sunday 16 January 2022 … Scroll down for Saturday’s results

On the clubhouse TV today: West Ham v Leeds United (2pm)

Note … my phone has been kaput since last night. Please don’t anyone think I am ignoring them! Will get it sorted asap. In the mean time, please email dhomewood@yahoo.com. Thank you.

Birthday greetings Sunday to Rachel Gramson-White, Buck Matthews, Nikki Endicott and Alex Quinn

Reminder: the seniors games at Hamstreet (Ashford Sunday League) and Jackey Bakers Field (Thanet Sunday League) are OFF this morning

Collo reports on another pleasing U10s display

A comfortable outing for our EKYL under 10s on Saturday morning down in Ramsgate, with Brad x2, Kai and Roman on the scoresheet. Not a thrilling game but all Green players putting in a steady and organised shift, playing decent football at times versus a plucky Ramsgate side. 

Kuba earned the Player of the Match award with a calm performance at the back – always picking the right pass and positioning himself well for the Rams counter attacks.

Marc and Tony delighted with the EKYL U10s and seen here with Player of the Match Kuba

No joy for our senior sides on Saturday with the firsts going out of the Kent Junior Cup by virtue of a 4-0 home defeat by Westerham and the seconds losing 4-1 away to Lenham Wanderers Reserves. Nick Szomjas netted our consolation score.

Meanwhile, league leaders Goudhurst proved too strong for the TMS Under 18s but plenty of encouraging signs. The Green consolation goal came from Jack Corrigan.

New signing Arfan was the Player of the Match for the U11 McDonalds who went down 3-0 while the U13 GWS lost 4-1 against Park Farm Rangers where Oliver Burrett hit our goal and PoM was Jamie Anderson.
