Sunday round-up

Congratulations to our two OBDSFL teams on progressing to the quarter-finals of their respective county competitions.

The Sunday XI put in a "very decent performance" to see off WW Martin 2-0 at Farrow Fields in the Kent Sunday Junior Cup.  Callum Clark and Chris Shanny got the goals.

In the Kent Sunday Junior Trophy, the Sunday Reserves travelled down to Cheriton AFC and won 5-0. Lee Friend scored a hat-trick and Steve Townsend two goals.

The Vets put in a strong performance in their home match against Charlton Rangers Vets but were on the wrong end of a somewhat exaggerated 0-4 scoreline.

Baltic Vets called off the match with our Senior Vets on Saturday, citing an unplayable pitch.

Saturday round-up - Harrigan hits a magnificent seven)!!!

Gary Harrigan scored two and one third hat-tricks as the Third XI breezed past Rusthall Club 8-2 at Farrow Fields to reach the Sevenoaks Charity Cup semi-finals.  George Osman scored the other goal for the Guild.  Sevenoaks Weald or Southborough Reserves (away) await in the semis.

The First XI drew 1-1 away to Fleetdown United in the league.

Ed Breen, Luke Blackwell and Dylan Charlery-Bowen scored to give the Reserves a 3-0 half-time  lead at home to Parkwood Rangers in the league.  The visitors "won" the second half to leave the final score 3-1.

The Fourth XI had an off day away to Crayford Arrows Red in the Queen Mary Cup, going down 5-0.

A year's membership to Bromley Mytime activities

A message from Ian Shoebridge

"I was fortunate to have won a year's membership to Bromley Mytime activities in a recent raffle draw with the value of the prize, I am told, approx £1500. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to use this so I am offering this to anyone who is interested for a huge discount.

This is for a family of (up to) two adults and two children; it includes all facilities at the Walnuts and High Elms golf course: gym, golf, swimming, exercise classes..."

Shoey will donate 50% of the proceeds to the club.

The closing date for bids is 4pm Friday 19th Jan.

For more info email the club.
