Logos and signs Worker imageThanks go to Lawrence for sorting the potholes and Brendan for supplying the material. On Monday, at 8.30am, Lawrence and Shane would appreciate help with applying topsoil to remedy the dips on the pitches. Can a few of you volunteer at the club on Sunday please and it won’t then take too long. Thanks.

Silence is Golden

To avoid upsetting anybody, can the U7s, U9s, U11s and BG Valiants be especially quiet early on Sunday morning please and stay in the clubhouse whilst preparing to go to tournaments. In other words, no shouting about, kicking against the wall or in the MUGA (until 9am). Party time when the teams return (Aaron’s 21st celebration) and football on the clubhouse TV.

Meeting times and registration slots can be viewed on the Events & Fixtures page

Keyholders please have your keys with you on Sunday; although I expect to be there from early doors … thanks DH

The first 11-a-side game for the U13s [U14s next term] ended in a 13-2 victory over a Biddenden side that arrived short in numbers. But credit to the Den who, with the aid of several Green lads, put on an entertaining game. On target were Player of the Match Kacper (5), Jaden (3), Piotr, Ilja, Gift, Kieron and Jamie. The whole squad was present to meet the sponsors, except the injured George, and Dennise and Darren have promised to visit us whenever they can.
