Our under 8s got back to form at home to Long Melford. Jonah scored a hat-trick. Alex and Richard also got on the score sheet with one each. Nathan was the under 8’s ‘man of the match’.
The under 12s had a hard battle away to Wivenhoe on a muddy pitch, winning 3-2 with all the goals coming in the first half. Bergholt went 1-0 up with an own goal from a corner. However sloppy play in midfield presented Wivenhoe with 2 quick goals. Jake Adams pulled it level and then Antonio Sabini scored a penalty after a defender handled on the line. The referee booked the player which is the first booking we have seen at this age group, but a booking is better for the boy than a sending off at 11 years old. The second half was mainly Wivenhoe but the defence held firm and did not present them with many clear cut chances. Bergholt Heath’s ‘man of the match’ was Aaron Marley.
Our under 13s Essex Cordell Cup game at home to River Hawkes was postponed due to player’s illness which meant we could not field a team.
The under 15s lost away to Long Melford 8-1, which is a big improvement, and we are starting to score goals again. One of our new signings, Kristoff Andreas-Carter, scored his first goal for the club.
Our under 16s were at home to Halstead and won 3-0. Bradley Povah, Tom Hodder and Josh Claydon scoring the goals.
The under 18s were way to Lawford Reds and lost 7-0.
