Our under 8’s team is thoroughly enjoying their first season playing football together. Today the goals were scored by Jonah Murray and two from Richard Frost. Well done boys!
The under 12’s lost their first match in the A league this season narrowly losing out to Lexden Saints, current A league champions, 2-1 at home. Both of the Lexden goals were somewhat lucky – a deflected shot wrong-footing the goalkeeper and a speculative high shot that caught in the strong wind. The game was generally very even with both sides having chances. The Bergholt Heath goal was scored by Antonio Sabini with a quick shuffle to the left to create space inside the area and a cool left footed finish into the corner. The Bergholt Heath ‘man of the match’ was Jamie Bowden.
The under 13’s lost 9-2 away to Stanway Rovers, also in the A league. Bergholt Heath took the lead and at half time the match was evenly balanced at 2-2. The second half saw Stanway Rovers bring on some of their “Alliance League” players which made all the difference, with the score running away from Bergholt and the team looking a little demoralised at the end.
Our under 15s are still to get their season up and running in the D league, today losing away to Clacton 25-0. However the manager was unable to field a full team of 11 players.
The under 16’s faired better but still came out on the wrong side of a 2-1 defeat at home to Brightlingsea. Josh Claydon scored the Bergholt Heath goal.
Our under 18’s team were the only winners this week, running out comfortable 9-1 winners away to Tolleshunt D’Arcy. A true reflection of the teams dominance would have been a score well into double figures, however the referee appeared to take pity on the home team, which kept the score down. Alex Ponsford scored a hat-trick, with Ben Brice and Leo Reid scoring 2 each. Ben Rout and Ben Flower completed the scoring for Bergholt.
