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.

Looking forward to the weekend with UpDown Scaffolding

Saturday open from 7.45am

Under 11s squad to visit Smarden on Saturday

Preston, Alfie, Charlie, Timmy, William, Sam, Harrison, Abdel, Ben, Josh, Daniel, Kieran B, Thomas, Matteo, Arilas

Under 10 and U11s: can we please finalise arrangements for St George’s on Saturday after your games. Tournament entries and hotels all booked … but we need to clarify transport. With effort from all players, the Sponsored Penalty Shoot-Out should virtually cover most of the costs. I still need consent forms and deposits from a couple of families. Thank you DH.

U9sDVS complete the second session of the Sponsored Pass on Saturday – still time to sponsor the lads!

Friday: clubhouse open from approx 11am to mid-afternoon

Get your blue tokens at Tenterden Tesco’s

A plea goes out to all our members to shop at Tenterden Tesco’s for the next month and make sure you get your blue tokens and vote for the Bromley Green Valiants. The Bags of Help scheme, which starts today and runs throughout March, is designed to help deserving causes. Remember, we are the only club for miles  around that embraces disability football for children and adults, male and female. Any grant money received will be most welcome as we continue to expand our provision … and don’t forget that every little helps.

Busy weekend ahead

Still time to sponsor the lads as the U9DVS players complete the second session of their marathon passing challenge on Saturday after the match with West Farleigh who have agreed to switch their home fixture to Waterside.

The Under 16s are off to Egerton, who have been a bit of a bogey side in recent seasons; while the Under 14s have their final competitive fixture of an inconsistent but mostly enjoyable campaign away to Park Farm Rangers. The side should finish in the top four so steady improvement is evident.

A change of day for the Sunday Reserves who welcome Lydd Town Thirds on Saturday for a friendly which kicks off at 2.30pm. Too many blank Sundays without action, so we have  slotted in what should be an entertaining affair against  Ian Dimmock’s side. Roger Corkhill has stepped in the referee.

For all the weekend’s activities, please refer to the Events & Fixtures page

Last of the weekend reports from Matt Church (U11s)

It was such a lovely morning with the sun shining and I think the players were all in half term mode still as for the first 15 minutes they were all still asleep. Then the alarm clock must have gone off and they all woke up. The whole team then started where they left off the previous week with some brilliant confident goalkeeping and strong assured defending at the back excellent passing and movement in the middle and some great skillfull finishing up front. So proud of this group of players their attitude, hard work and enjoyment for the game is fantastic they have all and still are improving every week.
BG squad: Harry, Max, Harvey, Lilly, Bobby (1 goal), Ellis (1 goal), Riley (3 goals). 

Father and son delight for our McDonalds PoM
The U11s who were in fine form on Saturday

Sunday updates … Seniors cup win … Valiants in Peoples Cup

Headlines: Sunday firsts go through in the Divisional Cup with a 3-1 victory over Burton Grove … goals from Ryan Carter and Matt Burdon (2). Next up old rivals White Horse in the semi-finals with Aldington and Guildhall meeting in the other semi. Pick of the crop today, in a hard fought win, were Ryan Ford and old stager Lee Milton. Next week the boys welcome Ashford United to Waterside.

Peoples Cup mixed fortunes for the Green but we go out

Peoples Cup this morning
Action from Gillingham

First match was against Anchorians and was a relatively easy game. We were on top throughout and hardly looked pushed. Stewart got two goals, Cam got three, Grant got one and Toby six! Final score 11-0.
Second game was against Maidstone and once again another game which never looked in doubt. Stewart got one more Grant got three and Cam got himself five. They did score three goals throughout the match however, but in the end it didn’t matter. 9-3 final score.
Third game was the same as the first one, another game where everyone wanted a goal. It seemed possible as well as we looked to match other teams winning big. Toby got one, Grant got four, Cam got five and Aaron popped up with one at the end. Final score 11-0
Fourth game was going to be our first real test and toughest game of the day. It really showed, as we became the team under pressure and conceded goal after goal, not much more to be said we lost 6-0.
Last game we were playing for pride as it was already over by this point. However, we still wanted the game and held our own for a while, but we cracked over and over like the last game. They scored five and we could only reply with one consolation goal at the end through Cam. Final score 5-1
Many thanks Aaron
