NEWS

Mark Johnson breaks a leg

We are sad to report that Mark Johnson broke a leg while playing for the First XI at Halls on Saturday.

We wish him all the best for a speedy recovery - hopefully an operation will not be necessary.

The match was abandoned and has been rearranged for this Wednesday 27 September k.o.7.45pm. The winners of Wednesday's tie will entertain St Peter's FC of Jersey (yes, Jersey!) who are playing in a mainland competition for the first time.  They won 1-0 at Otford United on Saturday.

Paul Tanton scores his 400th goal for the Guild

After being stuck on 399 since May 7, Paul Tanton finally reached 400 goals for his one and only club on Sunday, typically poaching the only goal in the Vets' home win against Orpington Vets.

Congratulations to Tant on an achievement unlikely to be matched anytime soon!

Sunday round-up

Another good day for our two OBDSFL sides.

The Sunday XI defeated Bexley Athletic 5-1 in the Kent Junior Sunday Cup to give them an away tie against division rivals Lessa Albion in round two. On the scoresheet were Laurence Ennis-Webb, Alex Wray, Alex Barnes, Harry Tanner and an own goal. 

The Sunday Reserves secured a 3-2 away league win at FC Elmstead, the goals provided by Lee Friend (two, including a penalty) and Max Richards

The Vets, as reported above, defeated local rivals Orpington Vets by Paul Tanton's decisive goal at Farrow Fields.

The Senior Vets went down 4-2 in their traditionally tough fixture at West Farleigh Vets. Peter Harvey converted a penalty and the Seniors also benefited from an own goal.

Saturday round-up

The day was a sad one, dominated by First XI defender Mark Johnson breaking his leg, as reported above. 

Elsewhere, the Reserves drew 2-2 at home to South East Athletic Reserves in a league game. The unlikely scoring duo of Luke Johnson (see his goal HERE) and Chris Francis provided the point. League photographer Julie Hoare was at the game; you can see her photos HERE.

The Third XI had another 3-2 win, this time at home to KSG Falcons. George Osman scored twice and Stef Jones once.

The Fourth XI had a free week as opponents Real Mayo had a cup engagement.

We are pleased to announce that we are now subscribed to Jon W Sports Injury for all our sports injury needs.

Both therapists have worked and at professional and semi-professional football level. All Guild players receive £5 off every treatment session with them (making a 30-minute appointment just £18 or £20 dependent on location). More information can be seen on their website www.jonwsportsinjury.co.uk but please feel free to contact them to discuss any needs.

We look forward to working with them this season and keeping our players as free from injury as possible.

FA clamp down on dissent

The Football Association have introduced a series of tough new mandatory bans for grassroots players who abuse referees.

In a series of rule changes that will come into force for the 2017-18 season, players at all grassroots and youth levels will now receive an automatic and minimum five-year ban from football if they assault a referee. There will also be at least an 84-day ban and £100 fine for any physical contact with a match official.

Verbal threats will now be sanctioned with a minimum ban of 56 days, or six matches, with a fine of £50.

Friday Night is Jazz Night!
We have high quality live jazz every Friday night at Farrow Fields. Click on the poster to see who's playing.

TRAINING

We regard training as essential; not just for fitness and player progression but for building team spirit, increasing tactical awareness and generally improving chances of on-pitch success.

We have a club training session every Wednesday evening from 8pm-9pm at Bishop Justus School, Magpie Hall Lane, Bromley, Kent BR2 8HZ on a full size 3G pitch. Click HERE for a map.

Prospective new players are welcome to come along.
