Well done Sam … today’s PoM

Rob Finn reports on a successful trip to the seaside
Today we travelled to Broadstairs for a friendly against East Kent FC, who we had never played before. The first 10 minutes of the game was even until a mix up at the back saw us concede a goal 1-0. The boys kept battling and soon leveled when Thomas fired home 1-1. Then Matteo put us in front with a fine strike
and just before the break Thomas got his second goal and made the HT scoreline 1-3. Second half we started brightly with some great attacking football and it paid off when Josh beat the offside trap and fired in a low shot 1-4.  And they were not finished yet as Sam blasted home to make it 1-5  before Matteo got his second of the game with a low drive into the bottom corner 1-6.  The last 10 minutes the boys seemed to step off the gas and allowed the opposition to get their second goal 2-6. But the boys kept going forward and won a penalty when Matteo was brought down in the box. Harrison stepped up to convert the spot kick and made it 2-7 which was to be the final score. Well done all who took part and congratulations to Sam on earning player of the match £5 voucher today.

Great Vets game with Larkfield Vets … but it was soooooo hot! Thanks to all who took part and we look forward to the Mark Stanley Memorial Match next Sunday afternoon.

Dear All Clubs

We are the referee secretaries for the ADYFL 2018/19 season. Myself (George Head), Louis Brooks and Martin Bagshaw are all working together over the next season. We look forward to working with you all.

Firstly, if there is any pre-season friendlies which require a match official, please would you reply to this email, with the date and kick off time of the fixture, as well as the teams involved so we can appoint accordingly. 

Secondly, may you all confirm the postcodes for your grounds where home games are likely to be played over the next season.

Lastly, if any clubs have club referees officiating their games next season, may we have their names as all referees need to be checked for CRC and make sure that this is in date. This is extremely important for safeguarding purposes.

Look forward to working with you over the upcoming season.

Many Thanks.

The ADYFL Referee Secretary Team
