Request for a welder!

Welder (or clever repairer) needed urgently please for the adult goals. Please contact Matt Twyman (maintenance) or one of the Executive.

Update for tonight: clubhouse open from 4pm to about 7.30pm and the MUGA lights are reset … so we should all be ok! Fingers crossed and a big thank you to Simon in the Children’s Centre and John Murray at ABC for their help.

“Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong”  Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Training as per the schedule this week [refer to the Events & Fixtures page which contains one amendment for the U9 Colts on Tuesday]. Can managers/coaches please not call off sessions unless it is dangerous for children. I had several complaints last week from parents and children as less than 50% of our youth players trained; with some being called off at really late notice. If you can’t make it yourself, then please appoint a deputy at the earliest opportunity and let Lisa and myself know. Football is, after all, a winter sport and we pay several thousand pounds to ensure every child has training opportunities throughout the whole year. Thank you DH.

Tonight’s training is for the U9s with Martyn (Pitchside) and the U14s with Nicole (Waterside)

Bromley Green Valiants photos and reports … please go to the BGV Page

Children’s Christmas Party

Tickets are now available at just £5 per child which includes Santa, presents, food and drinks, entertainment etc. Adults are free! Helpers always wanted and so far we have Mark Smith (entertainment), Lisa Copham, Shane Cowley, Lulu (food) and Lisa Smith (decorations) plus of course the real Father Christmas! Ideally, we need at least two parents from each team to become involved. See Dave Homewood for tickets … strictly cash or BACS payment and first come, first served. Thank you.

Green progress in the Bodkin Cup

Gary Gibbs, down to his last eleven fit men, was happy to move through to the next round of the Bodkin Cup with a 5-2 victory over Grasshoppers at Waterside this morning. On target for the Green were Lee Milton, Connor Gower, Reece Chapman and Kieran Shrimpton (2) … all who came through the Bromley Green youth system.

Not such good news from the reserves camp with a crushing 10-0 defeat away to title favourites Biddenden. Report awaited.

Clubhouse open this morning with Leah-Ann for the BG Valiants who are at The Abbey School, Faversham (DH to cover from 9am).

Good luck to the firsts at home to Grasshoppers and the reserves away to Biddenden.

Training as normal for the BGV Juniors with Nick this morning … note from now on training will commence at 10am
