Not the best of weeks! The under 8s didn’t score any goals, away to Bures.
The under 12’s lost away to Lexden Saints, who are top of the table and yet to drop a point this season, 4-2. The first half saw us go 2-0 down but we fought back to 2-2 by half time, and we could have been one or two goals in front at half time if the Lexden Saints keeper had not made some excellent saves. The half time changes didn’t work as planned and the second half we struggled to get forward and lost two further goals without really threatening. A disappointing end. The Bergholt Heath goal scorers were Gianni Sabini and Leo Tiffney. Our man of the match was our goalkeeper Connor Welfare, for his second half performance!
Our under 13s also lost to the top of the table side, this time at home, 4-1, to Stanway Villa. Keir Brown scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
The under 15s had a full team for the first time in several weeks, but lack of games was certainly a factor, especially in the first half when they found themselves 16-0 down at home to Clacton. A half time switch of positions by the manager made for a much improved second half, with the game finishing 18-1. James Dixey scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
Our under 16 team had a spare weekend as there was no scheduled fixture.
Our under 18s completed the set of poor results, losing 7-0 at home to Lawford Blues.
