Under 9s DVS ‘sponsor pass’ plans revealed

Looking for player sponsorship … the U9sDVS

Our U9sDVS are doing a ‘sponsored pass’ to Selhurst Park on Saturday 16 February 2019. We play away to Park Farm Rangers that day so will all go back to Bromley Green clubhouse after; so should start about 11:30 – 12:00. The players will be in pairs, so 5 groups, and all groups will have to pass the ball to each other 721 times at 25 metres apart. This will then total 56 miles which is the distance from Bromley Green FC to Selhurst Park. Each child will have a sponsor form to raise money for both our tournaments at Brighton and Palace. Thanks Dean.

Tuesday 15 January 2019

Training as per the schedule this evening with the U9sDVS at Waterside (6-7pm on the MUGA) and the U9 Colts at the North (6-7pm indoors)

The club was represented by Brian and Michelle Edwards, Vice President Mark Day and Honorary Patron Dave Homewood yesterday at the final resting of Bob Watson. RIP mate.

Some light relief from our dear friend Steve Mailey …

We was brung up proper!

To those born before 1975

First, we survived being born by mothers who smoked and drank while they carried us and lived in houses made largely with asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon and processed meat, and never got tested for diabetes or cervical cancer.

After that trauma, our baby cots were painted in bright lead-based paint. We had no child proof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets. When we rode our bikes we rarely wore shoes and never wore a helmet. As for the risks we took hitchhiking… don’t ask!

As kids we would ride in cars without seat belts or air bags. We drank water from a garden hose and not from a bottle. Take away food was restricted to fish and chips – no Pizza, Nandos, KFC, Indian, Subway or Burger bars etc.  Continue reading

Into a new week/BGV ‘C’ win all three matches

Bromley Green C win all three matches 
scroll down for report and photos

Bromley Green Valiants C who won all three of their matches at Faversham … well done!

Monday we say our last farewell to former defender Bob Watson. Service is at Christ Church 11am followed by burial at Bybrook and then a drink at the Albion. All of Bob’s football and former work colleagues are welcome to pay their last respects.
So, a hectic weekend for some of us and we start another week with training for the U9s at Pitchside (6pm) and the Under 14s at Waterside on the MUGA (6pm). The training schedule for the week can be viewed on the Events & Fixtures page.
Reminder to Executive: there is a meeting 7.30pm on Wednesday
Sunday night headlines: Firsts win on penalties at Aldington / seconds down to 10 men and lose in 93rd minute at Waterside.
Ashford Charity Trophy drama at the Reynolds Field with the Green and Aldington locked at 2-2 before penalties after extra time settled matters in our favour. Mention for Louis Burton who excelled in goal. Three players sent off; although it wasn’t generally a dirty affair. Richard Floyd hit both the Green goals in normal time. Firsts please note next week’s game against South Willesborough at Pitchside, Stanhope is on the 3G.
Sickener for the reserves who went down 2-1 in added time. With a man sent off for the last quarter, the boys still looked the most likely to snatch a decider but cruelly conceded right at the death. Lots of positives, especially the form of keeper Tom Messenger, centre backs Mark Fuller and Tyler Hastilow and youngsters Jack Hollamby and Conan Wyer.
BGV reports 
BG Valiants ‘C’ report from Debby Claber
It seems like a long time since we were last meeting up for travel to Faversham but everyone arrived happy and confident on Sunday morning.
We had 3 games and won all 3, so safe to say that the happy, confident vibe continued throughout the day.
Goals during the first game were provided by Jordon (2) and Adam, with Gemma and Jordon also having shots on target that were foiled.  However, the second game, against Anchorians, gave Gemma her first tournament goal (Yayy!), with Nick scoring within moments of coming on to the pitch, and Adam providing the third to win that game,3-1.  The final game against Maidstone ladies gave us the 3rd victory of the day (1-0).
Player of the tournament goes to Owen, who is having an outstanding first season in the Adults, and has been absolutely solid in goal for us not just this weekend but throughout the season.
Thanks to all players for making it another enjoyable day – and to their parents/supporters too.

Well done Owen!

BG Valiants ‘A’ in action on Sunday
Report from the Abbey School, Faversham by Aaron Maul
BG Valiants (A Side) Tournament Report

Our first game was against Maidstone who haven’t looked all that strong of late and we managed to win quite comfortably. Cam and Grant scored one each so we finished 2-0.

Secondly was against Charlton Deaf, which was going to be one of our tougher games of the day. Made more difficult by the fact that we were a man down; we conceded one goal and while we were pushing for the equalizer conceded a second. Final score 0-2. Next was against the second Charlton team and despite being a player down managed to hit them on the break on multiple occasions with Cam converting one. Final score 1-0. Swanscombe were next who started top of the table; we conceded early but again managed to hit them on the counter often with the same outcome. Cam ran from deep in our half cut in and put it through their keeper (its worth mentioning a sublime defensive performance from the team, especially toby who was letting nothing through as usual). Final score 1-1. Lastly was Canterbury which was another backs to the wall performance and again we held firm for the draw 0-0. Man of the tournament went to Toby for some seriously impressive defensive work to keep us in our toughest games.

Congratulations Toby!

BG Valiants break losing run with convincing win!
Report from the Abbey School, Faversham by David Spencer
BG Valiants (B Side) Tournament Report
The squad this week struggled with fitness and injuries and I would like to thank Aaron Small for his attitude and wiliness to help his team despite not being 100% due a recent non-football related head injury.

The squad throughout the day, despite being a player down battled on and the first 3 matches saw us face all top 3 teams and unfortunately resulted in 3 losses  (2-0, 2-1 and 1-0).  Ashley kept out many shot but due to the sheer number of them some were unfortunately going to get past.

Our 4thgame was played against Maidstone Steel, which was played in total contrast to our earlier matches.  Our team passed and moved the ball very well and throughout this match maintained good possession.   Our first goal was scored by Matt Baker, who stormed out of a defense position early on and slotted home our first goal.  Our second goal quickly came soon after when again when our defender Aaron Small ran up the pitch and put away goal No2.   The team boxed in our opposition and we were rewarded with our striker David Warde putting a further 2 goals away in close succession.   Our 5thand final goal was scored by Kane.   The match concluded with a well deserved 5-0 victory to us.

Our 5thand final match was played against Maidstone Nickel this was an even game but an early mistake by the oppositions keeper on our David Warde resulted in a penalty.  Kane confidently took the penalty and put us in the lead.  Maidstone fought back and made good use of their extra player and this determination netted them a late goal and the final result was a 1 all draw.

Today was tough for the entire team and our first competitive football since the Xmas break.  Plenty to work on over the next few weeks to ensure we return with a better fighting chance.

Player of the tournament went to Mr David Warde for keeping up the effort despite some early losses, which eventually paid off.  Well done David.

David is our Player of the Tournament for the B squad

On Sunday morning, the BGV Adults are off on tournament action while the BGV Juniors train as usual at Waterside. Our Sunday seniors are in cup action yet again at Aldington while the Reserves entertain Billy Rice and his Singleton pals for a league match.
Birthday greetings Saturday to Kieran Shrimpton!
The usual mixed bag on Saturday with the joy and despair that football brings. Bobbie Joseph was delighted with the Under 8s who did really well … what a shame we can’t give the score and scorers but there we are. A setback for our oldest team playing today, the Under 14s, who only had an Alfie Tappenden goal as consolation in a 5-1 home defeat to Lydd & Marsh. Jake Edwards was our Player of the Match.
Nancy has informed me that the fixtures are still being amended in certain age sections – as soon as they are finalised she will let me know and our own website can be updated (please be very wary of the original fixture schedule).
Monday sees the funeral of Bob Watson and any of his old team mates at Bromley Green or Denmark Sunday are welcome to attend and pay their last respects. Details are on the Events & Fixtures page.
Some early photos … more to follow as soon as time allows

Alex Hebbes: the club is so proud of our the little ones … we are getting there and now look forward to more friendlies

Fantastic effort by the U7s today at Faversham … well done to our Player of the Match!

Big thanks to the parents and children for braving the cold and doing Alex and the club proud

Pardon?

 

Well done Jake … PoM for the U14s

Action from the Under 11s thriller

Well done U8 Colts PoM

Keeping Grant and our sponsors Skoda Caffyns happy – the U12s in terrific form on Saturday in a sporting match with our friends from Pilgrims

Under 12s report from Grant Turner
BG Under 12s played Pilgrims today on a cold Saturday morning. It was a great turn out with 15 players today. This meant we could keep players fresh and hungry. The match was played in a good spirit with both teams working hard.
BG soon took control of the game in the midfield with their tackling and their quick passing. It was this passing that put Tom in on goal during the first half, his touch was good as he knocked it around the keeper, unfortunately the keeper conceded a penalty. Riley was today’s penalty taker and cooly put it away. With it 1 nil at half time.
The second half started quickly with Harry scoring 2 goals, quickly followed by Lenny. With 20 minutes to go Stevie took over goal keeping after having a good first half on pitch. Jamie then went up front and it was not long until Harry hit his 3rd goal. The match was rounded off with Jamie hitting a stinging shot into the keeper’s far right corner. All the players gave their all and it showed in their play. Player of the match goes to Harry, special mention for George who was selfless with his play in midfield with his passing always looking at starting our counter attacks when we didn’t have the ball. A BIG well done to all the players – I am happy for you.
Under 8 Colts report from Pat Penfold
It was a cold morning at Waterside where the Under 8 Colts took on Grasshoppers. It was one of them games where we missed loads of chances but it was still a good game to watch – so well done team and the player of the match goes to Harvey for a great performance. See you all next Thursday at training.

Under 11s report from Rob Finn
Today we welcomed Grasshoppers to Waterside for what was to be a thrilling encounter with both sides contributing to some nice flowing football with end to end action. The boys all gave 100% once again and well done to Sam for getting PoTM today well deserved.

Thursday 10 January 2019: team reps wanted

“The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.” – Vladimir Lenin

Training as per the schedule tonight (please refer to the Events & Fixtures page if in any doubt)

No working phone at moment … please email … thanks DH

We will soon be having our next Youth Teams Forum with all children’s teams from the very little ones through to the U16s the focus of attention. Each team should have a team rep/Respect ambassador and we are appealing for parents to come forward and be an ear and a voice for their respective squads. At present, several teams do not have a dedicated rep and this often means there is no-one to cascade information or indeed put across a point of view on behalf of parents/children. Meetings are only held about three times a year but there are lots of little things that you can communicate with your manager, fellow parents and of course players. Managers are more than welcome but the main intention is not to discuss the playing side, more policies,  procedures and ideas for the future. The important thing is that all sides are represented … this avoids misunderstandings and enables us all to share matters both of concern and celebration. This is an exciting juncture in our club’s history with expansion and new facilities on the horizon. Come and have your say and play a tangible part. The next get-together will be announced on the Events and Fixtures page within a week or so. Further details about taking part in our future from Dave Homewood or Lisa Copham.

Midweek

Sorry forgot … opening hours today are 3.30pm – 7.30pm

All welcome to come and chat, collect bags and garments

Under 16s: Lisa is trying to arrange a match for this weekend … news as soon as we have any

Training tonight is as per the schedule (please refer to the Events & Fixtures page for times/venues). Clubhouse open from 4.30pm for BGV training set-up. Request from Grant Turner: please, wherever possible, keep off of the playing surfaces. Another reminder that vehicles are not to be parked in the Swan Centre Car Park unless we have gained permission. Thank you.

Many thanks to Danielle and Julie for tidying up the pigsty last night!

There are still dozens of club bags to be collected that have been here since before Christmas … please pop in and grab yours! Thank you.
