Our Under 9s were at home to Clare Town. An improvement on their first away fixture at the beginning of the season saw Clare end up with a 5-0 victory.
The Under 13s also played the ‘reverse’ fixture to the first game of the season, away to Cornard Dynamos Blues. Cornard were out for revenge having been beaten 4-1 on the Poors Field, and took the game to Bergholt from the first whistle with a high tempo game played in thick fog! Bergholt struggled to get any time on the ball to get their passing going, but on the few occasions it happened, they looked dangerous. From one of these few moments mid way through the first half, Bergholt took the lead through a penalty from Antonio Sabini after Mickey Whittle was pushed in the back by a Cornard defender. After this it remained a backs to the wall battle for the rest of the match in which Cornard got more desperate – in truth generated more by the supporters than the players with the referee taking the name of one of the parents who sounded off about a decision by the referee and didn’t head the warning by the referee to be quiet! Despite a few close shaves, the Bergholt defence held firm and there was a sigh of relief by all connected with Bergholt Heath when the final whistle went. Unfortunately after the final whistle a Cornard player was sent off after swearing at the referee! Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’: Connor Welfare.
The Under 14s lost a close match at home 3-2 to Tourqespeed. Ed Quilty and Liam Donnelly scoring the Bergholt goals.
Our Under 16s – playing with only 10 players at home to Clacton Community – put up a brave fight only losing 2-0. A full compliment of players may have seen their first win of the season!!
The Under 18s were away to Stanway Villa and goals from Callum Drage and Ryan Fox saw them win 2-0.
