Bergholt Heath YFC – Results 23rd January 2011 & upcoming fixtures

Our under 8s are still on their winter break, but did start training again on Saturday. Their first match back should be 6th February.

The under 12s were at home to Wivenhoe Youth Blues in the A league and won 2-0 in a close competitive match. Bergholt survived a scare when Wivenhoe hit the bar after only a few minutes, and generally Wivenhoe had the better of things in a tight first half. However Bergholt went into the break 1-0 up after Antonio Sabini was credited with a goal after a scramble in the box – the Wivenhoe linesman signalling that the ball did cross the line before being cleared. The second half saw a more composed Bergholt Heath performance and it was no surprise when the second goal was scored – Leo Tiffney wiggled his way past the right back and crossed for Ronan Gallagher to slot home from the edge of the six yard box. Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’: Harry Dixon.

Our under 13s played the league leaders, Holland, away. Proving that confidence is the key to success, following a couple of wins in the cup competitions against opposition from lower divisions, the team put in their best performance of the season to date. Bergholt found themselves 4-0 up before Holland pulled 2 goals back, but the players did not fold and managed to score 2 more goals on the break, running out 5-2 winners!

The under 15s did not have a game scheduled this weekend.

Our under 16s were in Open Cup action, losing away to Broomfield Youth 2-1. The team were 2-0 down but kept battling away finally scoring with 5 minutes to go. Had they scored a little earlier then they could well have gone on to win, but it was too late and Broomfield held on for the win.

The under 18s were in league action at home to Reed Hall, the match finishing 2-2. Bergholt took the lead through Jacob Hill but 10 minutes lack of concentration saw them concede 2 quick goals. However they got back on track and scored a deserved equaliser through Leo Reid.
