Arrow F.C. vs. G Casino Thanet F.C. (30/Sep/2012)
Arrow FC 4 G Casino Thanet 1
This sunday saw G Casino Thanet mark their first game in the Challange Cup against third divison opposition Arrow FC. As the game got under way G Casino knew that they would have to keep their shape and take any chances that came their way.
It was Arrow FC that had the best of the chances and were a head with two quick goals but G Casino never let their heads drop. As the game went on G casino found themselves slowly getting back in to the game putting Arrow FC on the back foot. As the clock ticked on G casino got the goal that had been coming with Franck Ziabi sending a corner in to the near post which found Bartek Biegajlo who turned on the spot and sent the ball in to the back of the net.
As the half went on G Casino had their share of posession and created some more chances only to see the wood work and the Arrow defence keeping the ball out. Dean Smith and Neil Woodland both had long range efforts to try and test the Arrow keeper from distance only to see both efforts fly well wide of the target. At half time G Casino knew that if they could get a quick goal in the second half then they would be in with a chance of winning the game. The second half saw both teams create chances and Arrow having the best of them, only to see keeper Daniel Hollow in good form and the defence of Nick Shaw, Terry Green, Tom Dow and Tom Ross solid.
As the game went on G casinos back four kept soaking up the pressure only then for Arrow to find a way past twice more putting the game out of reach with only minutes left on the clock. A good solid porformence by G Casino Thanet and they can take a lot of positives from the game and build on them for the rest of the season.
Final score:- Arrow FC 4 v G Casino Thanet FC 1

Birchington USC F.C. vs. Birchington USC F.C. (23/Sep/2012)
BUSC FC 5-1 Radfall FC
Birchington bounced back from the last couple of weeks with a great team performance in the kent cup.
Birch started strongly and it wasn't long before the opener came. The massively infuential David Bowles
intercepting a pass and playing in Darren Stirrups
who turned inside the defender and curled the ball past the keepers outstretched hands.
Despite dominating early a defensive mix up saw Radfall equalise on a counter attack. The club soon regained the lead when Martin Flaig's low drive could only be parried by the Radfall keeper leaving Darren Stirrups
the easiest of tap ins for his and Birch's second.
Stirrups completed his hat trick shortly after heading home a Colin Rouse
corner at the front post to leave Birch with a 3-1 half time lead.
The second half started with Radfall trying to find a way back into the game but the back four held firm with Colin Rouse
and Martin Flaig shielding them brilliantly in centre mid. The lead was increased when the lively Ross Aylett
broke down the right and cut back for Darren Stirrups
to fire home and put thte result beyond doubt. The rout was then completed when Stirrups layed the ball up for Aylett to fire home a rasping drive from the edge of the box. A great team performance considering Birch were left short with last minute withdrawals meaning forced changes to the team, now on to the next round and hopefully an away day.

AFC Thanet Dolphins vs. AFC Thanet Dolphins (23/Sep/2012)
Harriers 1 AFC Thanet Dolphins 2
A Well fought win today from Thanet dolphins. A strong finish from the in form Jamie brown and a tidy goal from Shaun Alliston was enough to see off the Berne bay harriers.
Man of the match goes to the immense Sam Newing. Other than for a very dubious penalty would have had another clean sheet. He should be a thundercat. The strength of panthro, the heart of lion-o, the cheek of snarf and the speed and looks of cheetara. Captain fantastic, thundercats hoooooooooooooooooooo
Active Broadstairs F.C. vs. Hotel De Ville (23/Sep/2012)
Active Broadstairs 1 Hotel De Ville 0
A good game of football with both teams trying to play on the ground and at a decent pace. Fairly even first half which Active just a bout shaded without creating too many clear cut chances until the 40th minute when a Payne low cross was met at the far post by goal machine Ross Howells.
Second half HDV came out strong without really threatening to score and having weathered the storm Active got stronger with Robinson hitting the bar from 35 yards and Howells hitting the post. Both keepers made 1 good save each as Active held on to secure another 3 points.
G Casino Thanet F.C. vs. Bulls Head F.C. (23/Sep/2012)
G Casino 7 Bulls Head 1
After last weeks poor display G Casino went out looking for a result that would get their season back on track and thats what they got, taking all 3 points from this wet and cold game. As the rain started to fall and the wind blowing, G Casino Thanet kept the ball down and passed it around well, till the Bulls Head won the ball in the middle of the park and played a ball over the top only for the forward going a few seconds to early and seeing the flag go up which stopped the goal scoring opportunity.
This was a big wake up call for G Casino that they had to take full control of this game fast or find themselves in trouble like last week. After having an opperation on his in-growing toe nail Johnny Fairbrother missed last weeks game and made his return in this game and he got of on the right foot with a ball that set up the first goal from Lukasz Zwara. 1-0. It was not long before G Casino found themselves 2-0 up when Niel Woodland got his first assist of the game playing the ball through for Johnny fairbrother to get his first of the game and season. 2-0.
G Casino then went to sleep and found themselves on the back foot and conceding a goal just before half time. 2-1. As the half time whistle came G Casinos team talk was about keeping the ball, playing it on the ground and getting the next goal early which could kill the game off. With that still fresh in their minds and the introduction of Tom Dow in the middle, G casino found themselves on the score sheet thanks to some hard work from Johnny Fairbrother playing the ball through for Neil Woodland. 3-1. It was not long when Tom Dow played the ball through for Neil Woodland to tuck the ball nicely past the Bulls Head keepeer who could only watch the ball go in to the net. 4-1.
G Casino was rewarded a free kick just in side the Bulls Heads half and with the wind behind him Tom Ross stood over the ball waiting to take it. Once the ref was happy Tom stepped up and took the kick, the ball floated in to the box and looked like it was going in on its own only for Neil Woodland to jump at the far post and get the last touch to round of his hat-trick and leaving Tom Ross with the assist to his dissapointment. 5-1. With the game in the bag and looking safe for all 3points G casino pressed for more goals which came thanks to Johnny Fairbrother and Lukasz Zwara.
The only down side of the game was at the end when the Bulls Head found themselves with a player being booked. With a display that any captain would be happy with, this weeks man of the match goes to Niel Woodland. Final Score G Casino Thanet FC 7 - Bulls Head FC 1
Sporting Northwood F.C. vs. Eclipse Recovery Services F.C. (23/Sep/2012)
Sporting Northwood 1 Eclipse Recovery Services 6

The last ten minutes eclipse kept the ball with out northwood even getting a touch james bedingfield with a well timed pass setting luke fairhead with a well placed goal finishing the game making it 6-1.
Adeva Athletic F.C. vs. Preston Hellings F.C. (16/Sep/2012)
Adeva Athletic 3 Preston Hellings 0
3 Points on the board Sunday morning saw Adeva Athletic gain their first points of the season, but also lose a valuable member of the side. After last weeks impressive display against Windsor Decor, Manager Ray Shearer decided to make no changes to his side and keep faith with the same 11.
It was a sloppy start to the game from both sides and the only thing to happen in the opening 20 minutes was for Adam Hobbs to pull up with a re occurring hamstring injury he had recovered from 2 seasons ago. This left a big decision for Hobbs as Athletic for the 2nd week running had no available substitutes. After a chat with Shearer on the side line he decided to play on and hope for no further damage. 5 minutes later though the game came alive when the Preston right back launched the ball cross field for the attacker to latch onto only to be brought down by Marc Preece which was thought to be outside the box although the referee had pointed to the spot.
This left Adeva fuming but will feel justice was made when keeper Darren Burton leaped to his left and parried it away superbly. What happened during the save though left Ray Shearer with another problem as Burton had looked to have dislocated his thumb and had to leave the field of play and go straight to hospital. This ment striker Danny Griffith would go between the sticks where he had played in previous seasons for Minnis Bay.
That was it as far as the first half went and the 2nd could only get better.That was indeed the case from both teams as the passing started to flow and both keepers were tested firstly the Preston keeper kept out Sam Hobbs and Mileham then Danny Griffith pulled of a sublime save down to his right to keep the game at nil nil. From that moment onwards though Athletic started to boss the game all over the park especially with Di’Spirito and Adam Hobbs really taking charge in the middle. Mileham and Holewell were working constantly on either flank and Sam Hobbs was doing all he could to find the goal desperately needed and that he did when Danny Griffith’s long goal kick was poorly dealt with and Sam Hobbs went clear and hit a scorching half volley under the keepers body.
After the opening goal Preston did push on and try there upmost to find an equaliser and when the striker found himself one on one for the first time in the game he was again superbly denied by the impressive Griffith and his left foot. Preston were now tiring and with the Athletic back 4 solid and in control they new a second goal would really kill the game off and thats exactly what happened when a Preston corner was cleared it left Sam Hobbs clear and through one on one with the keeper for him then to very un selfishly square the ball to Dean Holewell to tap into an empty net.
With the score now at 2 nil and only moments to go the game slowed right down and when Adam Hobbs picked up the ball in the middle of the park his quarter back like pass between the keeper and centre halfs found brother Sam in space who delightfully lobbed the keeper from the edge of the box to put the icing on the cake. A huge mention must go to captain Johnny Martin and Jamie Swinton for their dominant performance at the back and Man of the match could again of gone to any one of the Athletic players but Danny Griffith just snatched it after his 2 very important saves at very important times.It was later that night confirmed that keeper Darren Burton had broken and dislocated his thumb and would therefore have to have surgery at a later date. On behalf of everyone at the club we wish Darren a speedy recovery.
Mulberry Tree F.C. vs. G Casino Thanet F.C. (16/Sep/2012)
Mulberry Tree 4 G Casino Thanet 2
This is a game that G casino Thanet will want to put behind them this season. After the 7-0 win over Hereson the confidence was high and knowing that the Mulberry Tree was coming in to this game off the back of a 6-0 defeat then a early goal could see their heads drop.
This was not going to happen as the Mulberry Tree took the game to G casino and came very close to a goal in the first few minutes only for the off side flag to save G casino. The mulberry Tree beat the off side trap minutes later to go 1-0 up. After a few tense minutes with the Mulberry Tree going close twice but with no luck in finding the net, G Casino found themselves with a chance from Dean Smith only to see the ball come back of the post.
As the game went on Mulberry Tree got into their game and G Casino was still tring to find theirs. On a Break down the left Bartek Biegajlo cut the ball back to Neil Woodland in the box for him to put the score level. 1-1. As the game got back under way G Casino's right back Artek Zatylny found himself in the refs book. Just after G Casino found themselves with another chance on goal and this time Dean Smith didn't miss. 1-2. As the Half time wistle went G Casino knew that they where lucky to be 2-1 up and that they had a game on their hands.
The second half got under way with the Mulberry Tree playing the better football and getting a goal back. The G casino defence was left looking for an off side flag that never came as the Mulberry Tree broke through again to take the lead again. 3-2. As the game went on both sides found themselves with a player each going in to the refs book and once again the Mulberry Tree found themselves through on goal to make the score 4-2. With 15 minutes left on the clock we saw the talking point of the game that saw a clash of heads in the Mulberry Tree's box which lead to the ref showing two yellow cards to Neil Woodland but this takes nothing away from the Mulberry Tree that played the better football and walked away with all 3points that they deserved.
Mulberry Tree F.C. vs. G Casino Thanet F.C. (16/Sep/2012)
Mulberry Tree 4 G Casino 2
After a bad result against Monkton, Mulberry Tree went out looking to put things right this week and they did just that. G Casino went into the break 2-1 up but The Tree came out 2nd half and gave a great team performance, with Ben Tite and Jack Gunn stealing the show with a brace each and G Casino reduced to 10 men late on, Mulberry Tree went on to win 4-2. Great victory over a good side.
Elephant & Castle F.C. vs. Westgate USC F.C. (16/Sep/2012)

We signed Paul Jarman who was a goalkeeper last season for Minnis bay and put him in midfield, He dominated the game with 4 goals and set up Dan Pitcher for his 5th goal of the season, We are the team to watch this season and are drawing in players of top class!!!
Saga Services F.C. vs. Evolution F.C. (16/Sep/2012)
Saga Services 7 Evolution 3
This is a game that Evolution will want to put behind them, some woeful defending allowed Saga the advantage with them 3-0 within 30 mins, Evo tried to get in the game and had a couple of chances but Saga took their opportunities well, in the 2nd half again Evo could not live with the pace and were 5-0 down before they started playing.
DALE WELLS came on with 20 to go and placed a sweet free kick into the top corner, BOBBY DUNN got on the score sheet converting a long throw and DALE WELLS again struck a sweet right foot for Evo's goals, all said and done though Saga deserved their victory and gave the Evo gaffa food for thought on how Evo are to go forward.
Eclipse Recovery Services F.C. vs. AFC Thanet Dolphins (16/Sep/2012)
Eclipse Recovery 0 AFC Thanet Dolphins 5
A real solid performance from Afc thanet dolphins today. Very neat tidy football going and an extremely strong defensive performance. Very difficult to call man of the match as there were superb performances all round the park.
Jamie brown scoring a superb hatrick and an assist, tidy finish from Jason Abbott and two assists and a great finish from Matt older. Man of the match goes to Matt older who for the last 3 games alongside Sam Newing has been immense. He's always been a bit of a looker and a ladys man but having slimmed down this year, wow the blonde beast of a man is in the form of his life.
A truly beautiful performance capped with a goal. Sorry Jamie brown great hatrick but Matt you've got to feel the love from the team.

Kings Utd F.C. vs. Red Arrow (Sunday) F.C. (09/Sep/2012)
Kings Utd 0 Red Arrow 1
The game started at a quick tempo and kings to be fair were on top for most of the game having a few more chances than us.
Having said that dave budd scored a wonderful freekick. With kings still pushing, red arrows did create a few chances of their own, but kings got the goal they were loookin for with 5 mins left when kevin howells popped up with a winner for red arrows. It was a battling win and kings probably desevred something but in the end we held on.

G Casino Thanet 7 Hereson Garage 0
If anyboody was think that this game would go the same way as the pre season friendly then they shold think again. After missing out on a win on the first day of the season G Casino came out wanting to send a message to the rest of the league that they are the team to watch this season.
Taking control from the of G Casino was unlucky not to score when Neil Woodland had a bullet header saved on the line by the keeper.

Evolution 4 The Orb Sunday 3
Evolution FC were full of confidence after last weeks perfromance but it took a little while for them to get into their stride, on 12 mins ADAM JONES found the ball from ash and slotted the opener into the back of the net, on 20mins though some poor defending from a free kick allowed orb back into the game with an equaliser.
Some 5 minutes later bobby dunn found himself clear and squared the ball for STEVE LAMING to tap in, and after the break the gaffer made a change to freshen things up an with immediate effect as BOBBY DUNN charged a ball down to finish neatly to make it 3-1. The Orb pushed forward and broke through the middle to make it 3-2 and some 5 mins later they equalised from a corner to make it 3-3 however, EVOLUTION are made of stronger stuff this season and in the 80th minute Mathew Morris drove down the right wing to put a peach of a cross in for GARETH FOREMAN to head home to make it 4-3.
The last 10 mins were frantic as the Orb pushed but Evolution held fast to secure another 3 points, the game was played in a superb spirit and both teams went off knowing they had be involved in a competetive end to end game well played
Westgate Social Club F.C. vs. Social Westbrook Club F.C. (09/Sep/2012)
Westgate Social Club 1 Social Westbrook Club 3
"Back to back wins" hasn't been a particularly over used phrase in recent times for 'The Social', but the great start to the season continued with a fine second half performance against Westgate Social. They could have been ahead as early as the second minute but Adrian Fibbens lob came back off the bar. Home keeper Jones made a good save from a James Wells free kick before the Westgate side took a hold on the game, scoring minutes before half time much with the run of play.
But if ever there was a case of hard work and team effort it was on show in the last half hour as the Westbrook Club turned the game in two mid half minutes. Jordan Wise broke through to fire in the first and only seconds later the away side were ahead Adrian Fibbens blasting clinically past the out rushing Jones. Westgate chased the game but the Social defence held strong and hit their opponents on the break and after Paul Zannetti had gone close on two occassions it was Wise that put the match beyond any doubt scoring his second from a tight angle.

AFC Thanet Dolphins 1 Stonecroft Builders 1

Tidy little finish from Phil head for a 1.0 lead and looked in control but they fought back well. Managers man of the match goes to Jason Abbott.

Adeva Athletic F.C. vs. Hungry Horse F.C. (02/Sep/2012)
Adeva Ath 1 Hungry Horse 4
Adeva Athletic took to the field for the very first time and although lost 4-1 that does not do the performance justice. Athletic started superbly playing there way through the heart of Horses defence on a number of times but couldn't quite pull off the end product.
With Adeva in control Jonny Martin came the closest to breaking the deadlock with a sizzling volley that just whistled over the bar. Horse then took the lead on the counter with the long ball over the top and although the winger was possibly standing in a offside position the goal stood. Adeva then struggled to get back into there flowing football and Horse grabbed 2 more before the break.
The second half was slightly better for Athletic and when Robbie Maugham beat the left back for pace and rifled his strike into the top corner the game turned again and Athletic started throwing the kitchen sink at a well organised defence but just couldn't find the net. With minutes to go Horse ended any chance of a comeback with a well taken volley from outside the box. So it was not the start Adeva wanted but there were positives to take out of a superbly battled game.

New team, new formation, a good buzz, job done. Outstanding team performance. Managers man of match - Phil head - despite a wedding the previous night in Folkestone, got back, threw up and then bossed it. Only gave the ball away once and cried like a girl. Oh and a mention for the 30 yard screamer, top right, Jamie brown. Finally Shaun Alliston, legend in goal.
Albert FC vs. Eclipse Recovery Services F.C. (02/Sep/2012)
Albert 1 Eclipse Recovery 3
A great start to the season from the new reformed eclipse after the 1st 15 mins of some good football james bedingfield sending the albert goalie the wrong way to slot home the 1st goal. After another 5 minutes of some good attacking possession damien fairhead unleashes a left footed screamer into the top corner to make eclipse up by 2.
Second half the eclipse started strong but chris parish giving away a penalty after tripping the albert striker over in the box. Reece sewell the eclipse keeper stayed big forcing the striker to miss sending the ball wide. stephen stockley a new signing to the eclipse, scoring on his debut to take eclipse to 3-0 . After a good counter from the albert to bring a goal back to make it 3-1.........also mentioning the new signings all of the new players that the eclipse have brought in all fitted in well and looked as if they have been there for years...
