FGR vs Maidstone United

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

As one of our Forest Green Rovers ambassadors, Eddy has published his latest match report as the season reaches an exciting finale! He has also included the results of the Player Awards.

FGR vs. Maidstone United

Forest Green Rovers’ last home game of the season was held against Maidstone United on the 22nd of April.

In the first half, FGR were immediately on the attack, and in the 1st and 3rd minutes they had 2 great chances. In the 11th minute, that attacking had paid off when Liam Noble set up Keanu Marsh-Brown, who scored to put Forest Green one goal ahead.

Then, at the half time break, a camera man walked past the corner of the pitch by the Main Stand. To the amusement of the watching crowd, a sprinkler turned on and showed the camera man what it had in store…

In the 56th minute a cross into the box by Keanu Marsh-Brown got on the wrong end of an unfortunate defender, who put the ball in the back of his own net. Six minutes later, Maidstone’s Harry Phillips bagged himself a goal after Sam Russell made a mistake. Maidstone’s confidence was boosted after that goal- now in full contention for the win, they pushed harder until Joe Pigott scored to level the score up to 2-2. The game stayed that way until the end.

“Are they supposed to be pulling each other’s shirts like that?” asked my mum.

“Is this cake vegan? It seems very heavy!” said my dad.

This 2-2 draw was observed by 2030 fans, 280 of whom came from Kent.

Player Awards

After the Maidstone game, FGR held an award ceremony for the club members and players. Some of the awards were: Player of the Year (Christian Doidge), Goal of the Season (Omar Bugial)  and Primary and Secondary Ambassador of the Year (Wilf Doble and Elsie Heslop).

I was very surprised and delighted to be awarded runner up in the Primary Ambassador of the Year!

Don’t forget to look for the date of the play-offs against Dagenham and Redbridge!

Archery Competition

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

A team from the Owls Class took part in an archery competition at Archway School. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to develop their skills in a sport where they have less experience. It was very pleasing to see everyone persevere, listen carefully to the coaches and enjoy the competition.
