Selkent Vase

Last weekend's photo and video coverage

Club photographer Colin Brazier was at three of our games at the weekend, the Fourth XI v. Standard BallersFirst XI v. New Romney (second half only) and Sunday Reserves v. Groundhoppers. All the photos can be seen in our gallery HERE.

The full match video of the Sunday Reserves game can be viewed HERE.

Sunday Round-up

Four matches to report on Sunday; both the Sunday XI and Colts had a free week.

The Sunday Reserves went down 2-0 at home to Groundhoppers in a league match.

The Vets trailed 4-0 at home to Toby Vets before staging a comeback with goals from Mark Fisher, Jay Gasson (his first for the club) and Sean Blackwell but they missed a great chance to equalise just before referee Paul Parsons blew for full time.

The Senior Vets won 3-0 away to Lads of the Village Super Vets. Amazingly for a side having such a good season it was their first clean sheet of the campaign. The goals were shared between Kypros Michael, Jay Hardy and George Kleanthous. George's match report can be viewed HERE.

Our Under 9s continued their enjoyable season away to Hayden Youth.

Saturday Round-up

The First XI took on high riding New Romney at Farrow Fields in the league, having been trounced 9-0 in the return fixture back in October. This time FOBG lost 4-1, but their performance merited a closer scoreline. Christian Fisayo got a first half equaliser but Romney regained the lead a minute later and doubled their advantage midway through the second half. The home side kept pressing, to no avail, and Romney wrapped it up in injury time.

The Reserves travelled to Erith and Belvedere Reserves in the league and were beaten 2-0. The teams meet again in the return fixture at Farrow Fields this Saturday.

The Fourth XI brushed off the challenge of Standard Ballers 6-0 in a league match at home. Having narrowly won the return fixture last week, Jez Allen's side roared out of the blocks with a hat-trick inside the first 20 minutes from leading scorer TJ Kode, including two penalties. He was then promptly substituted, to return in the second half under the roll on, roll off substitution procedure. New signing Joe Bresnahan, John 'Tucks' James and Grant Kelsey completed the scoring.

The Third XI had no scheduled fixture.
