Wins for Sunday firsts and U16s

Eleven goals in a windy farce

Bromley Green 6-5 Fox Sunday

A ding-dong battle at Waterside that had plenty of action if not always a lot of guile. On target for the Green, reduced to ten men for the final quarter, were Luke Burdon (4), Levii Loyza and Connor Gower.

Clubhouse open Sunday from 9am with the Sunday seniors welcoming old friends Fox Sunday for a 10.30am kick off at Waterside. It is blowing a gale!

Under 16s pull off result of the day

Rye Bay 0-2 Bromley Green

A morale-boosting result for the Green U16s on the windy Sussex coast as Mark Fuller looks to end his reign on a winning note. Fuller, who will hand over the reins to Martyn Dalby and Jamie Hurst at the end of the season, was delighted with his charges who completely turned the tables on their poor performance last time out. Piotr took the Player of the Match while goals from Alfie and Ilja secured the points.

Mark Fuller, Piotr and Gabriel back home after a superb win

Matt Church reports on the U10s at home to Mersham

Today we welcomed Mersham to an extremely windy Waterside and despite the tricky conditions both sides played their part in what was a hard fought close game of football and in some instances the wind was blowing the ball faster than we could chase it. Bring on next week hopefully with less wind. Oliver, Max, Harry, Harvey (PoM), Ellis (1 x goal ), Lilly,  Bobby, Riley

Another fine tussle with Pilgrims U9s

We had the pleasure of welcoming our friends from Pilgrims for the league game at Waterside. We played them only two weeks ago and like that game this was played in the same way. Both teams playing so lovely football. Watching kids football when it is like this on a Saturday morning sets you up for the weekend, because whatever the score is to see your own kid out there enjoying themselves playing the best sport in the world and having fun makes you come away smiling. My player of the match went to Alfie; he is a very skilful kid but now he is also showing us he can tackle and his work rate for the team is now unbelievable 😁 well played Alfie and team. 😁😁⚽⚽

Bromley Green Vets 5-5 Lydd & Marsh Vets

Fantastic entertainment with the ‘old boys’ sharing ten goals at Waterside on Saturday afternoon. Gary Penfold (2), Jamie Dobbin (pen), Matt Wedge and Ben Harding were on target for the Green. Great to see some old friends and a welcome back to Michael Wylie who is pencilled in to work with Alex Hebbes and next season’s U8s.

Under 11s continue to shine … report from Rob Finn

3pm update: Wednesday evening: BG Valiants training has been called off – David Spencer

URGENT!

Anyone help? Gateway into field is just a mud-mess! Hardcore or whatever needed urgently to make it ok for Saturday. Worried that it is not passable even for emergency vehicles. Timmy is trying to solve but if anyone out there can sort … as the saying goes “Just Do It!” Any stuff left over can fill up the driveway potholes. When you’ve done that, I’ll get you a beer! Thank you. DH.

Clubhouse open today from 9.30am to 7.30pm … all welcome!

Birthday greetings today to Jordan Griffin!

For Wednesday’s training slots, please refer to the Events & Fixtures page

Thanks to Ellie, John, Katie, Jack and Archie who helped out Tuesday night and a special mention for Mrs Caka for the lovely cakes to mark Ilir’s last training session in charge of the Under 9 Colts. The club takes this opportunity to thank Ilir for all his dedication and he has assured the squad that he will still be around to shout at them. As a night out at our major sponsors McDonalds, the boys will have a visit to the High Street restaurant on Thursday 14 March @6pm.

This Saturday the boys meet in the clubhouse 9.30am for the home league affair with Headcorn. Brian will be in charge for the remaining matches this season but he will need help, especially on match days.

Oliver wants more … mind your knuckles Tommy boy!

It’s good here!

McDonalds Dave King keen to support Green youngsters

Taking over as Business Manager from Rachel at the High Street restaurant, Dave King is excited about the future and can’t wait to watch the McDonalds U11s in action (they always seem away lately!)

Fingers crossed, the squad will have a new sponsored kit in readiness for the St George’s tournament.

Plans in the pipeline for next season for the improving squad are to be confirmed at next week’s Executive Committee meeting with the likely way forward two sides in the ADYL (Rob and Timmy) and one in the EKYL (manager tbc). Committee member Jamie Spiers is confident Pirtek and his business associates will generously sponsor what will be the Under 12s next term.

No final decision has been taken yet concerning the U15s entry into the EKYL next season and again the matter will be under consideration at Executive level next week.

Martyn Dalby and Jamie Hurst have put their names forward to succeed Mark Fuller at the end of the season after Mark stated he didn’t wish to carry on once the league fixtures were completed. Jamie and Martyn will offer Mark support to enable a seamless transition. The plan is to enter the U17s next season which will enable our younger element to remain part of the squad (they are not old enough for senior competition).

Under 8 Colts: now Pat has sadly called it a day, Joe will manage for the remaining three league games of the season. This Thursday, Spud and Gavin have offered to train the children with Joe working. Please keep an eye on the Events & Fixtures page as amendments are always heavy at this time of the year.

I have been asked to remind all managers, coaches, admins, parents and players that club policy is not an optional choice. The policies have been formulated over many decades and are there for reasons – not least of which is safeguarding. Thank you.

More updates as news arrives

Matt Church reports on the Under 10s latest thriller

McDonalds PoM – well done!

Today we travelled to Headcorn and what an exciting match it turned out to be. This group of players never give up and against a well-drilled Headcorn side consisting of 4 subs our Bromley Green consisting of no subs more than held their own in an hugely entertaining end to end game of free flowing football with not one single foul from either team. 
Special thanks to Harry for another great performance as our stand in goalkeeper. Brilliant Bromley: Harry, Max, Harvey, Lilly,  Ellis, Bobby, Riley. Goals from McDonalds PoM Bobby and Riley (2).

Sunday updates …

Update: Green win 9-2 in Ashford Charity Trophy

Goals from the returning Luke Burdon (5), Matt Burdon, Ryan Carter (2) and Connor Little eased the lads through to the 3rd round in dreadful weather at Waterside this morning. Ashford United, who made a plucky comeback at the start of the second period with two quick-fire goals after a 5-0 interval scoreline, replied through Reece Hodges and Joe White.

Birthday greetings today to Martin Wirt!

Good luck today to the Sunday lads at home to Ashford United in the Charity Trophy (they are 5-0 up after half an hour) and the BG Junior Valiants who are away on tournament duty – just the weather for it!

How the managers saw it … these are the reports received

Under 9DVS from Dean Mansfield

This morning we had the pleasure of welcoming West Farleigh to Waterside. We started slow with the team looking like they had heavy feet, but we got better and better as the game went on. 

The game was played in a very good manner and West Farleigh’s manager and myself were both over the moon with the game as it was great to watch.

Player of the match went to Jack who put in a great individual performance – also helping the team with his great work rate. 

Under 8s from Bobbie Joseph

7-2 win today against Grasshoppers with man of the Match CJ with 4 goals  (not allowed to give full name)

Under 8 Colts from Pat Penfold

What a great morning of football for the Bromley Green under 8 Colts who played away to Pilgrims it was a great game a football and a great send off for me as it’s my last game for Bromley Green so I wish them all the best for the future

Under 11s friendly report from Rob Finn

Today we travelled to Smarden for a friendly and what a game it was with both teams playing some great football with the Green coming away with a well-earned 4-2 victory. Matteo netted twice with William and Abdel adding further goals. Overall a solid team performance by all that took part with the defence, midfield and strikers all on top form. Next week we are back in league action when we travel to Wye to take on Wye Blues which should be another entertaining game.

Seniors playing Saturday

Mixed seniors team yesterday won 4-0 in their friendly with Lydd Town 3rds. Goals from Ben Harding, Corie Griffiths, Cameron Bruce and Zac Cowley. Good performances from Danny Dallas and Levii Loyza. Big thanks to Damion Truelove for stepping in as a late referee replacement.
