Our under 8s scored 2 goals this week, away to Clare.
The under 12s drew 1-1 away to Cornard Dynamos Blues. They went behind with an own goal in the first half but yet again played much better in the second half and deserved to level the match with a goal scored by Ronan Gallagher. Antonio Sabini also hit the bar with a clever long range free kick as Bergholt dominated the last 30 minutes. The Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’ was Matthew James.
Our under 13 team gave what the manager described as a “halloween” performance and were 5-1 down at half time away to Stanway Villa and eventually lost 9-1.
The under 15s team did not play this week.
Our under 16s lost away 3-1 to AFC Sudbury in a tight physical match. Tom Hodder scoring the Bergholt Heath goal.
The under 18s were the only team at home this week, but unfortunately also lost 3-1 to Feering Falcon Reds who apparently were aided by a couple of strange refereeing decisions. Joshua Wright scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
Next week the attention of the older age groups turns to the league cup, whilst the under 8s continue in the ‘non competitive’ league. The fixtures are below, note the slightly later kick off times due to fireworks the previous night on the Poors field:
