[updated]: Sunday 23 July 2017: Harvey wins Managers Player award from Maidstone United

Harvey receives Managers Player award from Maidstone United

Congratulations Harvey!

Thanks very much to Maidstone for including Harvey in their annual presentation and celebrations today. Harvey has been playing tournaments this season with them as we haven’t had a full squad of U11s.

Update: Gary Gibbs was pleased with the commitment of the seniors who ran out of legs at the semi-final stage at Appledore. Gary said “They were all brilliant and I am happy with the way the squad is shaping up. Good luck to Cameron Lumsden who has decided to join Ashford Dynamo”. Green: Michael Smith, Josh Ahmad, Jamie Hurst, Billy Gramson, Connor Gower, Layton Bryant, Pawel Baron, Matt Wedge, Michael Smith Jnr.

Meanwhile, Sid and Grant took their charges to Appledore … reports and Player of the Tournament photos to follow … but as can be seen, the busy weekend ended with a beer!

Cheers! The U10s (parents)

Birthday greetings today to Owen Lewington!

Terrific displays yesterday at tournaments, headed by our BG Valiants who won 7 out of 7 matches at the Anchorians event. Report on BGV page.

U8s, U9s and BGV Adult Valiants have all left for their tournaments … good luck and enjoy everyone

Thanks to whoever picked up the stones from the field … Lash has done some more this morning … much appreciated. Please all put surplus stones in the ‘developing potholes’ as this will save much time and pain at a later date.

Junior mainstream registrations should now be completed apart from the odd one or two that are finalising on Tuesday after training. Standing orders must be in place or forms will not be submitted to the league.

Seniors reminder: training in earnest resumes on Tuesday 7pm sharp.

Thursday 20 July 2017 with Skoda Caffyns

Clubhouse open from 4.30pm

Training tonight for the U6/U7s, U8 Colts, U12s and U14s

Fantastic end-to-end game for the U10s last night with our friends from Pilgrims. Green player of the match award went to Harrison Petken … well played everyone and a mention for young referee Charlie Ward.

Perhaps sometimes we don’t fully appreciate our youngsters and their contribution to our club … Ilja, Jack and Ben prepared superbly for the U11s training last night and from what I watched, and the players I spoke to, they thoroughly enjoyed the session. Brendan was down supporting his colleagues and Charlie was refereeing while Zac served behind the bar. It is also refreshing that Cameron Bruce wants to join our growing band of budding referees … we will of course support him and see whether Cam enjoys something different as we wait until everything returns to normal on Saturdays in less than a year from now!

Sometimes perhaps there is an over-emphasis on the negatives concerning our youths when so much good work is being done. The new signings for Carl and Adrian/Charlie have already fitted in well and things are looking bright. Terrific stuff, well done to all you young people making a positive contribution!

Internal bits

* Thanks to those who tidied up so brilliantly yesterday … really appreciated!

* Can you all please complete the holiday/unavailability sheet [it is always on the noticeboard] if you are not going to be available on any date. This helps the managers and coaches plan. Thank you.

*A small minority of parents/players have still to set up their standing orders … please attend to asap

* We need decisions made about trips please youth managers … I know it seems a long way off but delaying just means we pay more! There is of course no obligation – but I need a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ please. Thanks DH.

* New players that have completed their standing order, please inform your manager of sizes for jackets, polos, t-shirts, bottoms … thanks

* Please do not ring me between 5pm and 7pm as I am always busy and cannot answer … if urgent, please leave a text message and I will get back to you the same evening. Many thanks DH
