Our Under 8s team came down to earth with a bump at home against Gt Bradfords and didn’t manage to score any goals. They were up against a very good Gt Bradfords team.
The Under 12s battled hard to get a 2-2 draw away to Heybridge in a good physical contest, which was probably a fair result. The Bergholt Heath goals were scored by Aaron Marley and Jake Adams and our ‘man of the match’ was Antonio Sabini.
Our Under 13s side had a break from league action by playing in round 2 of the Essex Cordell Cup competition. At home to St Claires ‘B’ from Dagenham they won comfortably 3-0. The Bergholt scorers were Danny Crouchman, Fawaz Oleyboo and Callum Sells. It’s good to see Bergholt Heath represented in the 3rd round of an “whole of Essex” competition.
The Under 15s are still struggling to field a full team and lost this weekend away to Brightlingsea Regents 17-0, but with only 7 players. Despite being very short of numbers, the team did not drop their heads and actually conceded less goals in the second half than they did in the first half – so their fitness must be good!
The Under 16 team lost a close match away to Colchester Athletic 4-3. The manager was much happier this week than in recent games and by all accounts we should have won the game – all 4 of the Colchester Athletic goals being somewhat fortunate whereas the Bergholt goals were all from good team play. Alex Bartlett scored all three of the Bergholt Heath goals.
Finally our Under 18s lost 10-1 away against a very strong Feering Falcon Blues side. Tom Foster scored the Bergholt goal on his debut.
