NEWS

Sunday round up: Firsts topple champs and a Vets double hat-trick!

A terrific Sunday for the Guild.

The Sunday XI turned around a goal deficit to score twice in the last ten minutes to beat reigning league champions Kumazi Strikers 2-1 at Farrow Fields.  Lawrence Ennis-Webb and an own goal settled the issue.

The Sunday Reserves had a free week.

The younger Vets beat Old Colfeians Vets by the remarkable score of 9-5! Alan Fines helped himself to a double hat-trick, with Paul Tanton, Sean Blackwall and Si Davies also contributing goals.

The Senior Vets won 5-1 away to Sanco Vets, Kypros Michael scoring a hat-trick within the last 20 minutes, after Simon Thomas and Jay Hardy had scored.

The Guild's Under 12 Colts begin their league campaign next Sunday at home to Lewisham Borough Cobras.

Saturday round-up: Defeats for Firsts and Reserves, wins for Thirds and Fourths.

The First XI couldn't repeat last week's performance, going down 4-1 at home to leaders Staplehurst Monarchs United in the league.  Aaron Smith scored for FOBG.

The Reserves' Kent Cup campaign ended at the first hurdle, as they lost 5-2 at Welling Town ReservesMike Cole and Liam O'Flynn (his first for the Guild) were on the scoresheet.

It was a better picture in the Bromley and South London Football League, with both our teams getting their league campaigns off to a winning start. The Third XI beat Lewisham Athletic 4-0 at Farrow Fields, the goals being shared between George Sherrin, George Osman, Gary Smith and Alex Barnes, while strikes from Jack Hollidge and TJ Kode gave the Fourth XI a 2-1 win at South Dulwich.

Guild honoured by four call-ups

The First XI's excellent start to the season has been recognised by four players being called up to the Kent County League Representative squad for the match against the Hertfordshire League on 21 September.

Congratulations to Connor Blackman, Lee Friend, George Perfitt and Harry Tanner.  Unfortunately Lee is still injured and will miss the match.

Our cup match at Bexley has been postponed until the following week, 28 September.
