Our under 8s are back into the swing of things after their mid-winter break. Although they played much better this weekend at home to Clare Town lions than they did in the away fixture, Bergholt didn’t manage to score a goal.
The under 12s finished off their A league campaign with a 0-0 draw (first time they have ever had a 0-0 result!), at home to Heybridge Swifts. It was a hard fought match and possibly the most entertaining of the season, but although Bergholt had more chances than Heybridge, they just couldn’t get the ball into the net. The under 12s needed to win the match to guarantee a third place finish in the league, so now they need to rely on Coggeshall preventing Heybridge – who are sitting behind in 4th place – from winning by more than 2 goals in their final match. Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’: Jamie Bowden.
Our under 13s were also at home, to the likely A league winners, Holland Blues. Holland were out for revenge after losing at home to Bergholt last month, and duly ran out 7-1 winners. The game was close for the first half which ended 2-1 to Holland. However Holland ran way with the second half, scoring 3 times in the last 10 minutes. Edward Quilty scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
The under 15s have finished their league season and did not have a game scheduled this weekend.
Our under 16s were away to Feering falcons and scored all 7 goals in a 5-2 win! Callam Drage, Tom Hodder, Alex Bartlett x 2 and Jack Gatland scored the 5 that counted for Bergholt.
Despite being 4-2 up at the end of the first half, our under 18s eventually lost 6-4 away to Reed Hall, who exposed some defensive frailties (from the night before?) in the second half. Dean Bennell x 2, Ben Rout and Jacob Hill scored the Bergholt Heath goals.
