Bergholt Heath YFC – Results & Fixtures 27th November

Our under 9’s played Bures at home, and completed their first ever league ‘double’, winning 2-0. Matthew Sanderson and Richard Frost scoring the Bergholt goals.

The under 13’s were also at home, to Silver End, in a game dominated by a strong wind blowing straight down the pitch. Bergholt played with the wind in the first half, and took the lead mid-way through with a headed goal by Mickey Whittle from a free kick swung in from the right by Gianni Sabini. It was 2-0 to Bergholt just before half time with Antonio Sabini reacting quickest to the rebound after the ‘keeper could only parry away his brother’s free kick. The second half started with obvious instructions from the Silver End manager to forget about passing and hit long balls with the wind for their strikers to run onto. This meant that Bergholt were under pressure for long periods, although it was only 5 minutes into the half when Bergholt went 3-0 up with a goal from Leo Tiffney after a swift passing move opened up the visitors defence. Silver End continued to pump long balls into the Bergholt box and finally they got a goal back with a high shot from outside the box with 5 minutes to go. Final result: Bergholt Heath 3 – 1 Silver End.  Bergholt ‘man of the match’; Mickey Whittle.

The under 14’s, only fielding 10 players this week, put up a gallant effort at home to Halstead, but despite only being 1-0 down at half time, eventually lost 4-1. Ronnie Heather scored the Bergholt goal.

Our under 16’s were away to St Edmunds and lost 17-1. Again they could only field 10 players. Scot King scored the Bergholt goal.

Finally, our under 18’s were also at home, to Broomfield Youth, and ran out 3-2 winners to follow up their win last week against the league favourites! Callum Drage x 2 and Alex Bartlett scored the Bergholt goals.
