Our Under 9s were back in league action after a break, away to Layer Colts. a superb performance was capped by a goal from Matthew Sanderson in a creditable 1-1 draw.
The Under 13s, at home in the third round of the FA Essex Cup to East Thurrock United – an Alliance League team who lost in the final last year (beating the “A” league champions Lexden Saints on the way), put up a really good fight to make it a competitive match, but eventually lost 3-0 to the Alliance team who were much bigger and stronger. Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’: Gianni Sabini.
The Under 14s also lost this weekend, 5-0 away to Stanway Villa in the “A” league.
Our Under 16s did not play due to Maths GCSE revision sessions held by Stanway School.
Our Under 18s were in league action at home to St Edmunds, losing a bad tempered match 4-0. The visitors had at least 6 players booked and one sent off – nearly all of these for either dissent or retaliation. Unfortunately this constant verbal barrage wore Bergholt down with some of the players going into their shells a little.
