I was asked for 13 clip-on ties and duly put them in the clubhouse for collection on Thursday. Can the good ladies come and grab them today please? I am at the clubhouse from early doors to 12 midday and then opening again at 7pm for the football on TV. Thank you Dave

Happy birthday today to Frankie Habgood, Zuzana Javorska, Charlie Fletcher and Charlie Wealands

Open tonight from 7pm for the Premier opening fixture Crystal Palace v Arsenal on the clubhouse TVs.

Useful inter-club workout last night between the U11 EKYL Ashford Ice Cream squad and the U12 McDonalds. Some great goals and lots of positives for both camps to reflect upon. Sadly we say goodbye, and send best wishes, to our little stars Mohammed Yousif and Ajmal who are moving to Canterbury.

New U14 EKYL squad – it’s looking good!

A big squad against Margate this afternoon as we recorded a 9-0 victory over our visitors. McDonalds. Player of the Match was shared between Liam O’Leary and Daeyaan Naunko. On target for the Green were Robbie Weir (2), Daeyaan Naunko (2), Liam O’Leary (2), Joe Nicholson, Tyler Sorsbie and Lenny Garcia. Saturdays and Sundays, we are going to recapture the good old days.

Black Rhinos 2-6 Bromley Green Ashford Ice Creams [Friendly]

Superb squad performance today as we worked hard all over the pitch. Excellent debut from Sipriot who slotted in brilliantly on the right wing fully deserving his 2 goals. Everyone played well today but Kobi just pipped George and Sipriot for PoM. Other goals: hat-trick for Brad and a screamer from Kobi. Hope Daniel’s knee heals quickly ready for Thursday 

Also big congratulations to all as we have been moved up a division to group B next season which will give us the challenge In every game which is exactly what we want. Marc Collins

Scrappy – but U12 McDonalds win friendly with Cheriton

The scoreline looked something like 8-6 to us! I won’t pretend we were at our best this morning but, as always, we will take positives forward to training on Wednesday. Excellent debut for Evan in goal. We have a friendly booked for Thursday against our Ashford Ice Creams friends (6pm). Henry is still out with toe problems and Hassaan is on holiday for a month – but we will do our best. Thanks as always to Martin Clark and Craig White for their support. DH
