Fabulous day of football at Waterside … updates as it happens … great results … but seniors slip up
The EKYL Festival, plenty of exciting youth football but a setback for the Saturday seniors who went down 2-1 in a feisty encounter with away specialists Deal Sports Reserves. The visitors took the lead but Connor Gower levelled. However Deal grabbed a late winner as the Green paid the price for missed chances.

Under 15s report
A winning start for the Under 15s today with Lash, Ilja with a header, Kieron and Kai on target in a 4-2 defeat of Biddenden Juniors. Lots of positives after the usual slow start as we gradually dominated possession with Conan and Charlie good at the back and Ben battling in midfield. Two other matches in the U15 section today: Headcorn 3 Grasshopper 4; High Halden 3 Weald Wolves Red 5. Next week the squad are away to Weald Wolves Red in the league.
Ben is our Player of the Match against Biddenden
Action from the U15s home victory
Well done Owen – PoM today for the U13s
Not a good day at the office but our U13s are always smiling … you will come good boys and girls!
Player of the Match for the U13s today was Owen Penfold seen here receiving his BGFC voucher from Brian Edwards
Under 12s … our opponents pulled out this morning … so it was training for the boys and girls
Under 11s report
The Under 11s played a strong Park Farm team in a friendly today at Waterside.
Bromley Green were very strong passing the ball and keeping possession. As the game went on the passes became quicker with many one-two passes cutting open the opposition defence.
Bromley were very good on the counter attack with players working hard to get up and support the attackers.
Special mention to the Park Farm goalkeeper who had a very good game and kept the score line down.
Bromley did concede a late goal from a good long range shot.
Scorers today were Tom 2, Anton 2, Leo 1 and Jay 1.
Jamie (gk) did score a wonderful goal chipping the away keeper from the edge of the box but it was ruled out with a late offside flag.
Player of the match went to this season’s team captain LEO, he ruled the midfield with most of the play going through him.
A big well done to the whole team they all played well. Very proud manager today. Cheers Grant.
The U11s who shone today
Under 10s impress … report from Rob
The winning Under 10s today
Today we made the trip to the Marsh where the boys got off to a great start taking an early lead through Kieran they past the ball around nicely and created chance after chance and were soon rewarded with a second when Matteo fired home. The defence were solid and Riley was excellent in goal when called upon and just before the break Matteo got his second goal HT 0-3. Second half started again well and 10 minutes in some great play from the boys saw them get a fourth goal 0-4. In the last 15 minutes they began to tire and conceeded 3 silly goals but held on for the victory. PoTM today was Alfie for some all round play and hitting the bar twice with good headers. Well done all who took part. Cheers Rob.
Under 8s brilliant display
And we’re off to a flyer – 10 out of 10 for the boys today for a great effort and concentration. Everyone worked hard and we were 5-0 winners against Wye. Clean sheet for Brad, a brace for Jake and a hat trick for Player of the Match Lucas. Well in boys … Greeeeeeen Army! Martyn Smith
Well done the U8s who shone at Wye today
U7s superb start
Mark ‘Spud’ Smith and five of the U7s were who were brilliant this morning in their first-ever match in the ADYL
Today marked the first league game of the new U7 team against Biddenden Juniors and I’m sure everyone that was there enjoyed a very thrilling and entertaining game.
The whole game was evenly matched, however Biddenden went into the break 0-1 up and we were unlucky to have not scored ourselves
However after the Half Time team talk they went out for the 2nd half ready for action.
The team were unlucky to concede another goal but from 0-2 down the Green boys soon replied with a great goal from Ben Buckowski. Which seemed to inspire the teams performance and give them the boost of confidence they needed. Another goal soon followed and this goal came through great team work and was put in the net by the 2 goal eventual Man Of The Match Ben.
The team looked like they were learning all the time and they had a few chances to go ahead and win the game but just could get it past posts due to some good goal keeping! Our keeper Henry Crocker also made some really great saves to keep us in the game.
The final whistle went at 2-2 the whole team showed the famous Green spirit and for their first ever league game performed really well; the parents and football club should be very proud of this young team.
Green: Henry Crocker, Ethan Webb, Callum World, Stephen Houghton, Harvey Freelove, Ben Buckowski
Thank you to Pat Penfold for setting up the pitch and being our ref for the game.
Well done and Well played boys !
Mark ‘Spud’ Smith
Happy birthday this Sunday to one of our latest recruits, Harvey Freelove!
Well done Jake!
For his contribution over the past few months Jake is presented with a club voucher by Vice-Chairman Shane Cowley
Bromley Green Vets … first game is against The Oystermen
Time we really got this going as the quality amongst our ‘Old Boys’ is phenomenal. Whitstable Vets are our first opponents on Saturday 7 October with a 1.30pm kick off at Waterside. Sid (07391902851) is putting the squad together. Sid is also looking at starting a Bat & Trap side to play Friday evenings … give him a call or better still have a chat with him in the clubhouse.
Two home games to whet the appetite plus SKY football
Gary Gibbs and co welcome Charing Reserves this morning (10.30am) and the value of a large squad comes into play even this early in the campaign with Kieran Shrimpton, Josh Ahmad and Ashley Webster amongst the absentees. But the boys have a tantalising blend of youth and experience and must start as favourites.
Bromley Green v Charing Sunday Reserves
Channel Cars v Kingsnorth Pilgrims
Fox Sunday v Sellindge SSC
Givaudan v Ashford Spartans
It’s Burnley v Palace (1.30pm) on the clubhouse TV with HAPPY HOUR from 1pm to 2pm [cash only, and to be consumed on the premises]. Special offers for members and guests will be on display in the clubhouse.
After lunch, Carl and Shane will relish the chance of another look at their charges when Kennington Juniors visit for a friendly (2pm). Alex Allan and Lenny Russell have returned to the fold which is great news while Saturday lads Jordan Osborne, Ilja Seleznovs and Kai Sutton have all signed forms both days. The nonsense of the league being put back a few weeks may actually work in our favour as a really strong squad is being assembled. Free refreshments will be supplied afterwards for both teams. A £5 voucher to the BG player of the match will be presented and this season all vouchers must be redeemed on the day.
