GLEBE RECEIVE SPORT ENGLAND GRANT

Glebe FC has been awarded £10,000 of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s
Community Emergency Fund towards ground costs, maintenance, utility bills and other
essential running costs during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

The outbreak of the virus and the consequent shutdown of businesses as of March 23rd has
left the sport and physical activity sector facing a period of uncertainty.

In response, on March 31 Sport England announced a £195m package to help the sport and
physical activity sector through covid-19. Within the package is a £20m Community
Emergency Fund, of National Lottery money to deliver immediate funding to those who
have a role in supporting the nation to be active but are experiencing short-term financial
hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the impact of coronavirus.

Rocky Mc Millan, Chairman, Glebe FC, said:

“We are extremely grateful for the help Sport England have given us with this grant. Without
these funds, the club would have found itself in a very testing financial position. With this
support, we now look forward to providing best in class facilities for our members in the new
season”

Tim Hollingsworth, Sport England’s Chief Executive, said:

As the body responsible for the growth of sport and physical activity participation, we want
the vital grassroots organisations that make sport and physical activity happen in this
country to not just to come through this crisis but to be in a position to thrive again in the
future. The £20m Community Emergency fund, made possible by National Lottery players is
part of a multimillion pound package of support we are providing to ease the pressure on a
huge number of the organisations who are central to the nation’s health and wellbeing.

“We are proud to be able to provide vital funding to Glebe FC to help it through these
extremely challenging times.”

Match Report: Glebe Youth 3 v 2 Ramsgate Youth

Adrian Swan

Glebe Youth 3 v 2 Ramsgate Youth
1-0 Whitmore (19), 2-0 Abiru (22), 2-1 Farmer (31), 2-2 Anderson (54),
3-2 George (69).

This was an entertaining game played between two good footballing sides that saw the home team take the points in a closely fought encounter.

Despite the very wet weather on Saturday the pitch was in excellent condition and both sides kept the ball down and played some good passing football on the good surface.

Glebe had the first chance of the game on 4 minutes when a Jonas Whitmore free kick from wide left found Ben James rising highest at the far post but his header flew wide of the goal.

They had another opportunity minutes later when from a Ramsgate corner the ball was quickly cleared upfield by Opeyemi Abiru to Oscar Powell who in turn sent a defence splitting pass inside the Ramsgate full back for Hakeem Jallim. He got to the bye line before pulling the ball back for Powell, who had continued his run into the box, but his rasping drive was pushed away to safety by Ramsgate keeper Oliver Haines high above his head.

The visitors went close shortly afterwards when Tom Wells hit a long range free kick from the half way line into the home box that was cleared out to the edge of the area where Jack Miller hit a low shot narrowly wide.

Glebe then took the lead on 19 minutes when Whitmore’s right wing corner was cleared out to the left of the area and collected by Powell who then chipped the ball back across to the far post where Whitmore scored with a close range drive beating Haines low at his left hand post.

The home side then doubled their lead on 22 minutes when another swift break saw Powell feed Jallim down the right and he surged into the box before hitting a low shot that Haines diving full length to his right managed to claw away but the loose ball fell to Abiru who touched home from close range.

Glebe then nearly gifted the visitors a way back minutes later when Nathan

Agyapong’s back pass was seized upon by Charlie Shonk but with only Glebe keeper Baldwin Kaluya to beat he shot over. On 27 minutes another Whitmore corner was cleared out to Joshua Peiris some 30 yards from goal and he hit a powerful first time half volley that flashed into the side netting.

James then tried his luck with a 35 yard free kick that flew straight at Haines, who with the sun in his eyes, knocked the ball up and only managed to gather at the second attempt.

Just after the half hour mark the visitors halved the deficit when a Sam Belsey corner from the left was not cleared by the Glebe defence with several shots being blocked before the ball fell to Elliott Farmer whose fierce shot flew home through the crowded box beating Kaluya low to his left.

Just before half time Glebe almost restored their two goal lead when a Haines clearance fell to Jallim who hit a low shot that flashed narrowly wide across the face of goal.

Early in the second half Ramsgate went close to equalising when Shonk did well to win the ball near the half way line and race through on goal but his fierce drive deflected off a covering defender into the side netting.

Glebe then went close to increasing their lead when Powell’s deep right wing cross found Jallim beyond the far post and although his volleyed shot beat Haines low to his right, the ball crashed against the post before falling out to the tireless Abiru whose follow up shot flew over from close range.

Ramsgate were then denied an equaliser thanks to resolute Glebe defending. Farmer got through on goal but Kaluya was quickly off his line and made a good close range block with the loose ball falling out to Shonk whose effort was blocked by a Glebe body with the ball then flying up to Jordan Anderson whose close range header beat Kaluya high to his right but was nodded off the line to safety by Agyapong.

However Anderson was not to be denied as he drew the visitors level on 54 minutes with an absolutely superb strike from all of 30 yards that saw the ball arrow home low to the left of the diving Kaluya, who got a hand to the ball but could not prevent it flying into the bottom corner of the net.

Glebe’s Zak Long then tested Haines with a 25 yard shot that the Ramsgate keeper saved diving high to his left. Just after the hour mark the visitors went close to taking the lead when James Turner put Anderson in on goal but Kaluya was again quickly off his line to make a good close range block.

Ramsgate problems of defending set pieces almost caused them trouble again when Abiru’s deep left wing corner found Long free at the far post but his header flew wide.

Glebe then re-took the lead on 69 minutes when Kai George, who had only been on the pitch a few minutes, let fly with a ferocious dipping shot from the edge of the box that Haines diving forward could only shovel into his net.

Minutes later Glebe had the chance to make it four after Abiru’s though ball had put Louis Henry in on goal but Haines in trying to save brought down the Glebe forward and a penalty awarded.

This was taken by Powell who hit the ball firmly but Haines diving full length low to his right made a superb save pushing the ball out for a corner. However the visiting keeper was fortunate minutes later when Abiru’s left wing cross deceived him as the ball flew over his outstretched hand but bounced off the bar and away to safety.

On 80 minutes good pressing by George on Miller saw him rob the Ramsgate player as he received a pass from Haines, and spotting Haines off his line George tried to chip the back pedalling keeper but the ball flew over.

Into the last 10 minutes of the match Ramsgate’s Shonk turned well before flashing a shot narrowly wide across the face of goal before Belsey’s right wing corner deceived Kaluya but James rescued his keeper with a clearing header from under the bar.

Shortly afterwards the final whistle went with Glebe victorious and with this win moved level with Ramsgate and Sevenoaks at the top of the table, albeit both themselves and Ramsgate having played two games more than Sevenoaks.

Fundraise this Christmas with the KYL

Get into the festive spirit and help the Kent Youth League raise funds for those who need it most this Christmas period.

On Sunday 15th December, we are asking all our clubs to support our #KYLChristmas efforts to fundraise for our Charity Partner, Redthread.

It’s a simple, festive ask. We’d like to encourage all teams to come together on our final official game before the Christmas break, to enjoy post-match hospitality alongside each other – and most importantly – wearing their best Christmas jumpers!

Not only is this a chance to bring players, coaches, volunteers and clubs together at Christmas, we will be offering a prize* to the two teams who share the best and most creative photo with us either on our Twitter or Instagram page using the hashtag #KYLChristmas.

All teams and their respective coaches, players and parents will be asked to consider donating a £1 to the initiative with every penny going to Redthread, a charity supporting young people to be healthy, safe and happy through work in A&Es and primary care.

It’s an important cause – and one the League will be supporting throughout the season – but with Christmas approaching, we have further cause to demonstrate that support to Redthread during a challenging time of year. 

Those taking part in #KYLChristmas will be able to donate to our Christmas campaign by clicking here.

Match Report: Sevenoaks Town Youth v Chatham Town Youth

Match Report: Chatham Town v Cray Wanderers Youth

Adrian Swan

Chatham Town Youth 3 v 0 Cray Wanderers Youth
1-0 Dos Santos (16), 2-0 Dos Santos (30), 3-0 Pinto (78).

Chatham Town moved into the next round of the KitToFit Challenge Cup with an excellent victory against a battling Cray Wanderers side.

Although there were many good performances in Chatham’s victory they was a virtuoso performance from forward Luis Dos Santos who scored twice and kept the visiting defence on edge throughout the game.

Indeed it was Dos Santos who tested Cray keeper Adam Bennett with an early shot from the edge of the box that he gathered well at his feet. Shortly afterwards Dos Santos got free down the right and raced to the bye line before fizzing over a low cross that fell to De Niro Pinto whose shot on the turn flew over.

Cray had their first chance of the game on 5 minutes when Christopher Alhassan surged forward to the edge of the box before playing the ball into Akolawole Salami whose close range shot went narrowly wide as he was quickly closed down by home defenders.

Minutes later Jack Palmby’s throughball found the run down the right of Dos Santos who then cut into the box and hit a fierce drive that flashed across the face of goal and just wide of Bennett’s left hand post. Dos Santos then made space well on the edge of the box before hitting a powerful shot at Bennett.

Chatham took the lead on 16 minutes when Dos Santos curled a 25 yard right footed free kick around the Cray defensive wall and low to the right of the diving Bennett into the bottom corner of the net. A neat passing move from the home side then saw them go close to increasing their lead when a Tyler Juggins pass found the run down the right of Alfie Bates who then pulled the ball back to the edge of the box for the on-rushing Pamlby whose first time shot ran narrowly wide.

Palmby then had another effort fly just over before Chatham made it two on 30 minutes when Pinto played the ball up to Dos Santos on the edge of the box and he jinked one way and then the other creating space before rifling home an unstoppable left shot that beat a diving Bennett low to his left.

It might have been three on 34 minutes when Dos Santos sent over a deep corner from the right that fell to Pinto at the far post and he clipped the ball back for Palmby, who racing into the box saw his stooping header fly wide.

On 40 minutes a neat interchange between Oscar Pantry and Dos Santos saw Pantry play the ball down the right for Dos Santos who, spotting Pantry continuing his run into the box, whipped over a low cross that a sliding Pantry narrowly failed to get to.

In the final couple of minutes of the half Dos Santos twice tested Bennett with shots from the edge of the box that the busy Cray keeper saved well.

The second half continued with Chatham on the attack. Dos Santos had a 25 yard free kick fly just over before a deep left wing corner from Juggins found Nicky Hunt at the far post but his diving header flew wide.

Cray then hit the woodwork on 52 minutes when Max Gayle’s left wing cross struck the outside of Harvey Mills’s left hand post although the Chatham keeper had his post covered.

Cray’s Tion Cudjoe then turned well on the edge of the box before hitting a low shot that flashed narrowly wide. Chatham nearly made it three on 56 minutes when another good passing move saw Palmby find Bates whose throughball put Dos Santos in on goal but Bennett was quickly off his line to make a good close range block.

Just after the hour mark Cray’s Jake Parrott made a good run down the left to the bye line before hitting a fierce shot from an acute angle that flew into the side netting with Mills again getting his angles right covering his near post. An incisive pass from Dos Santos then put Pinto through on goal but Bennett was again quickly off his line to block his close range shot.

On 74 minutes an excellent pass from Bates put the tireless Palmby in on goal but his shot flew over with only Bennett to beat. However minutes later the home side made it three after Bates made a strong run into the box where his close range shot was well blocked by Bennett, the rebound flying out to Pinto who deservedly scored after his fine performance, firing the ball home low to the left of Bennett.

Into the dying moments of the game Dos Santos went close to completing his hat-trick but was thwarted three times by fine saves from Bennett.

The visitors almost got a consolation goal in stoppage time when Parrott again did well down the left before having his powerful shot deflected just over. From Parrott’s left wing corner the ball was headed backwards by defender Oliver Kent-Smith forcing Mills into a low save diving back to gather the ball on the line.

Match Report: Sevenoaks Town Youth v Chatham Town Youth

Match Report: Sevenoaks Town Youth v Chatham Town Youth

Adrian Swan

Sevenoaks Town Youth 3 v 0 Chatham Town Youth
1-0 Harris (17), 2-0 Edwards (21), 3-0 Duncan (43).
This second Kent Youth cup tie was an excellent advert for the Kent Youth League with two currently unbeaten sides playing attractive passing football. It was the home side that started the game brightly going close to taking the lead after only 3 minutes when Chatham Town keeper Harvey Mills saw his clearance from wide left of his goal only find a Sevenoaks player who quickly crossed in to Elliot Duncan who controlled the ball well before turning and flashing a low shot narrowly wide as Mills scrambled back across his goal. Minutes later it was the visitors who had a chance when their impressive midfielder general Luis Dos Santos sent over a free kick from wide right that found Oscar Pantry on the edge of the box but his shot on the turn flew over. Dos Santos then fired in a long range effort that home keeper Tom Cleary gathered low down before the action quickly switched to the other end with a Sam Harris in-swinging corner from the right finding Harry Edwards at the far post but stretching he could only head wide of the target. On 13 minutes Sevenoaks midfielder Charlie Greenwood played the ball up to Duncan who made space well on the edge of the box before flashing a low shot just wide. Minutes later it was Charlie Pickard’s pass that found Duncan who again turned well but his curling shot from the edge of the box was superbly tipped away by the diminutive Mills diving high to his left to claw the ball over for a corner. However from this taken by Harris they did take the lead when his excellent in-swinging corner from the right flew over the outstretched hand of a leaping Mills and into the far corner of the net. Sevenoaks then quickly doubled their lead with a goal that had a touch of good fortune to it as Edwards hit a 25 yard shot that took a massive deflection off a Chatham defender, totalling wrong footing Mills as he moved to his left, with the ball spinning into the net off his right hand post. Chatham’s Pantry then made a strong run forward before hitting a fierce shot that flew just wide. Just after the half hour mark a high cross from Caleb Edorh found Edwards but his volley flew straight at Mills before Edorh then had a low shot well saved by Mills diving low to his left. Chatham’s Jack Kelly then forced Cleary into a good save high to his left to keep out his long range shot. Sevenoaks were then awarded a penalty just before half time when Luke Salmons made a strong run into the box where Mills dived at his feet to gather the ball bringing down Salmons in the process. The Referee deemed that Mills had brought the player down before touching the ball and awarded a spot kick. This was taken by Duncan who fired home low to the left of the diving Mills. In the second half Chatham had the lion’s share of possession but could not break down the home defence. Indeed it was not until the 63rd minute that the visitors had their first chance of the half when Dos Santos burst into the box but from an acute angle sent his low shot into the side netting. A minute later it looked as if Chatham would pull a goal back when a Tyler Juggins right wing corner was powerfully headed goalwards by George Green, the ball beating the diving Cleary high to his left but was headed off the line by Sid Smith guarding their left hand post. On 69 minutes Dos Santos flashed a long range effort narrowly wide before on 76 minutes his clever free kick found Joshua McIlherson but close range header was well saved by Cleary moving to his left. Cleary then made another good save a minute later diving low to his left to keep out another Dos Santos long range shot. Into the final 10 minutes of the match Dos Santos again tested Cleary with another long range shot that home keeper saved diving low to his left. Then in stoppage time a Juggins right wing corner found Green whose towering header flew just wide. Dos Santos then fired a shot from an acute angle over before Juggins had a long range shot fly straight at Cleary.

We will be running a FREE trial session for players aged between U12 – U16 in the 2019/20 season as we look to build elite training groups for the season ahead. We would like to invite all players from the KYL to come and taste what it’s like to participate in a SEFA academy session, and work with some of the leading coaches in the South East.

Coaches on the day will be:

Kieran Culleton (SEFA Head of Academies & current Charlton Athletic coach)

Rich Radbourne (SEFA Managing Director & Crystal Palace)

Jay Saunders (ex Maidstone United manager & current Margate manager)

Carl Laraman (ex Arsenal coach for over 25 years)

Details for the trial session are:

DATE: Friday 30th August 2019

VENUE: Bauvill Stadium, Maidstone Road, Chatham, ME4 6ES

TIME: 10.00am – 12.00pm

Kids for a quid on new coach service

This summer, Stagecoach South East is offering children’s tickets for just £1 on its new coach service. Throughout the school holidays, up to two children aged 15 and under can travel at very low cost when accompanied by one full-paying adult – with children under four able to travel for free.

The new Stagecoach Express coach service, with a route from Canterbury to North Greenwich via Medway, is the ideal way to start the day hassle-free.

The drop-off point for the coach is adjacent to The O2, one of London’s leading entertainment centres, and home to immersive VR experiences, restaurants, bars and a trampoline park.

Historic Greenwich is nearby, where you can visit the Emirates Line Cable Cars, or hop on a MBNA Thames Clipper to get to Central Greenwich and see the Cutty Sark or The Royal Observatory. There’s something for everyone and the rest of the city just a short tube ride away.

Joel Mitchell, Managing Director at Stagecoach South East, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer the Kid for a Quid option this summer – we know that travel fares add up and can turn a reasonably priced day out with the family into a financial nightmare.”

Onboard charging and free Wi-Fi make it possible to keep your gadgets fully charged, which is handy for entertaining on the journey, route planning and tourist information.

Barrie Kelly, CEO at Visit Greenwich, said: “The new Canterbury to North Greenwich route is fantastic news and a great boost for domestic tourism. Greenwich is an exciting visitor destination, home to The O2, the Royal Observatory and Cutty Sark. Canterbury and Greenwich have strong cultural and heritage links and Visit Greenwich is delighted to be working with Stagecoach Express to promote the new route and inspire people to enjoy the attractions and experiences in Greenwich and at Greenwich Peninsula. 

“The area is particularly popular with families and the Kid for a Quid offer makes for a very affordable day out.”

Up to two £1 tickets can be added per adult coach ticket. With pre-booked single tickets starting at £6 from Medway and £7.50 from Canterbury, the whole family can enjoy a purse-friendlier day in the capital.

Joel continued: “Pre-booking on the new coach service will mean guaranteed seats for all passengers. All our coaches have air conditioning, an on-board toilet, reclining leather seats and individual reading lights to offer more comfort while travelling.

“Booking in advance via the Megabus website is the cheapest option for most passengers, but you can also buy a ticket on board for those last-minute trips. Let the coach take the strain and give the whole family a rest – avoid the stress of driving and parking in central London and take an environmentally friendly approach to sightseeing this summer.”

The children’s add-on ticket is available anytime, any day and can be purchased on the coach with cash or contactless payment. Children must be accompanied by the adult ticket/pass holder at all times when travelling. The Kid for a Quid offer is valid from day one of the new service until 31 August 2019. 

The Stagecoach Express service runs daily from Sunday 21 July and the M2 route has pick-up points at Hempstead Valley, Chatham Bus Station and Chatham Maritime. 

Fare information and a full timetable is available at www.stagecoachbus.com/StagecoachExpressM2, where passengers will find a link to book tickets on the Megabus website. A £1 booking fee applies.
