NEWS

Support the Sunday XI

The Sunday XI play their final match of the season against champions Ex Blues needing a result to help them in their promotion bid. 

They would love to see plenty of Guild support at the match, which kicks off at Bishop Justus School at 7pm Wednesday 23 May.

Results round-up - the Sunday Reserves win the league!

Congratulations to the Sunday Reserves who won both games of their home double banker against Biggin Hill Junior and in doing so clinched the Division Three title and promotion for the second successive season.

The matches were won by 5-1 and 3-1. The Guild scorers in the first match were Steve Townsend (2), Dave Martin, Lee Friend and a worldy from Craig RalphSteve Townsend also got two in the second match, with Matt Ellis the other scorer.

A very much depleted Sunday XI were beaten 4-2 away to Greencourt.  They complete their season away to Ex Blues on Wednesday at Bishop Justus with promotion hopes still very much alive.

The Vets have completed their season, but their Senior counterparts are still going strong.  They drew 3-3 at home to Baltic Vets on Thursday evening (scorers: Peter Harvey (2) and Jay Hardy) and were well beaten (8-2) away to Bird in Hand Vets on Sunday, George Kleanthous scoring both Guild goals. The seniors now embark on their tour,of Lille, where they will play three games in as many days over the Whitsun weekend.

With no games scheduled on Saturday there was still good news as the Fourth XI heard they will be awarded the points for their unplayed fixture away to Crayford Arrows Red, leaving Jez Allen's youthful side a very creditable fourth place in the final Division One table.
