After what seems like months due to the postponements because of the bad weather, our 11-a-side teams were back in action yesterday after the Christmas break. Our under 8’s, who play “mini soccer”, have a mid winter break and are not due to play again until February 6th – a sure sign that the weather in January will be ok before being snowy again in February!
A mixed bag of results from our five 11-a-side teams:
The under 12s won 1-0 away to Bures United in the A league. A good solid display which should have warranted a 5 or 6 goal winning margin (according to the Bures manager!). However as usual the boys had left their shooting boots at home and failed to hit the target when it looked easier to score than miss, which made for a much nervier end to the game than it should have been. The goal when it came just before half time was a scrappy affair, Antonio Sabini taping in after the ball had hit the post. Bergholt Heath Man of the Match: Antonio Sabini.
Our under 13s finally got the win they have been looking for, away to Long Melford in the league cup. They ran out 5-2 winners in the end – after being 2-1 down with only 10 minutes to go. The Bergholt heath goal scorers were Cameron Siedlecki x 2, Kier Brown, Callum Sells and Fawas Olyboyee. This result should give the boys some confidence when they move back to A league action.
The under 15s continue to struggle, this week losing 13-1 away to Frinton & Walton Reds in the league. James Dixey scored the Bergholt Heath goal. The good news is that the manager is now able to field a full team of 11 players each week.
Our under 16s lost at home 4-2 to Colchester Athletic, also in the league. Ben Holness and alex Enright scoring the Bergholt Heath goals.
Finally the under 18s also played Colchester Athletic, losing away 6-1. Unfortunately the manager could only field 10 players due to late withdrawals. Dean Bennell scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
