Borough Green Youth U14s 4 vs Lenham Wanderers U13s 2
BGY were made to work hard to gain a narrow victory over Lenham Wanderers U13s who showed spirit and talent to give the home side a real scare.
The visitors took the lead when a long-range shot was well parried by BGY keeper Connor Connerty but he couldn’t prevent a Wanderers’ forward smashing home the loose ball. Ollie Smith equalised but Wanderers regained the lead after some truly sloppy defending. A 2-1 lead at half-time was well deserved by the U13s.
The home side regained the initiative in the second-half and began to dominate their younger opponents. Goals from Ollie Smith and Harvey O’Neill put BGY into the lead before a smashing volley from Zack Rassool sealed the win.

Vinters Valley 1 vs Borough Green Youth U14 1
A superb display away to the unbeaten league leaders saw Borough Green Youth earn a well-deserved point. Victory eluded them largely because of a quite brilliant show from the Vinters Valley keeper who pulled off several incredible saves. He was by far the best keeper we have come across. An outstanding performance.
The lads started brightly and dominated long spells of the first-half with Harvey O'Neill, Ollie Smith and Anesu Mutongi all bringing out the very best from the home keeper. Charlie Farmer put the visitors in front with a hard, low shot from an indirect free-kick. A 1-0 half-time lead could have been so much more.
Vinters came back strongly in the opening exchanges of the second-half but BGY keeper Connor Connerty had little to deal with as the defence and midfield in front of him held firm.
Sadly, the home side levelled with an own goal from a corner. Tough luck on James Jacouris who had played really well only to see the ball deflect off his head as he battled to clear.
To their great credit, the BGY lads surged back into attack and re-asserted their control and went close on several occasions but could not claim the winner.
A smashing game between two excellent sides played in a cracking spirit. Borough Green Youth will play a lot worse this season and win. A real gutsy effort from them.

Borough Green Youth U14 6 vs Sittingbourne Swans 1
BGY produced a solid performance in this home friendly against Swans with the highlight being hat-tricks for Ollie Smith and skipper Harvey O’Neill
Both sides were missing players but the teams put on a smashing match with some good attacking football. BGY were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to two tremendous strikes from Ollie and Harvey.
The visitors pressed hard but they went down to 10 men when their manager took off a player who had been guilty of a poor, late tackle on BGY defence James Jacouris. A decision to be applauded.
BGY finished strongly and could have scored more with Danyal Agowun hitting the post. All in all, a good workout.
Sunday 8th October
Borough Green Colts 1 vs Borough Green Youth 6
BGY skipper Harvey O’Neill plundered five goals as he led his side to a convincing victory over local rivals, the Colts. The Youth raced into a 3-0 half-time lead when Thomas Wilkinson and his captain took advantage of some defensive errors.
The Colts hit back from a second-half corner and pressed hard but the Youth defence held firm and winger Ollie Smith eased the pressure by causing increasing problems with his direct running. From one of his many superb crosses, Harvey O’Neill scored the goal of the game with a thumping close-range header.
Sunday 1st October
BG Youth 4 vs 1 Larkfield
BGY collected their first league points of the season with a convincing 4-1 home defeat of Larkfield. Two goals apiece from skipper Harvey O'Neill and Ollie Smith were scant reward from the host of chances that BGY created. Chance after chance went begging due to careless finishing plus the heroics of a talented Larkfield keeper.
The home side even missed a penalty in the last minute. Still, on the whole, a pleasing performance.
Sunday 24th September
Sittingbourne Swans 6 vs. Borough Green Youth 5
BGY came out on the wrong end of a topsy-turvy match away to Swans that could have gone either way. The visitors started strongly and were 3-1 ahead after 25 minutes before Swans countered strongly with some sensational shooting from outside the box to go into a half-time lead 5-3 up.
The BGY lads battled well in the second-half to draw level at 5-5 and then hit the bar with five minutes to go as they pressed for a winner.
But it was Swans who claimed the victory with an excellent breakaway move.
