Our under 9s did not have a game this weekend.
The under 13s were in League Cup action, away to Elmden Rovers in Clacton. A much better performance this week resulted in a very comfortable 7-1 win for Bergholt, which really should have been 7-0 but for a lapse in concentration by the Bergholt goal keeper who had been a spectator for the first 25 minutes – by which time Bergholt were 2-0 up – but was then caught out failing to deal with a long through ball. However the team soon got over this setback and, despite missing an open goal from almost on the goal line (TV blooper time!), finished the first half 3-1 up. The second half saw the manager make his usual cup tie changes to give everyone a run out. By the time the 5th goal went in, the Elmden heads had dropped and the last few minutes saw the ball almost continuously inside the Elmden box. Final result: Elmden Rovers 1 – 7 Bergholt Heath. Bergholt goal scorers: Antonio Sabini, Owen Bernhardt, Mickey Whittle x 2, Aaron Marley x 2, Ciaran Donnallan. Bergholt ‘man of the match’ Gianni Sabini.
The under 14s were in league action at home to Stanway Rovers but lost 3-1. Ed Quilty scored the Bergholt goal.
Our under 16s completed the matches this week, but lost 17-1 away to Long Melford. Unfortunately Bergholt could only field 10 players this week. Joshua Wren scored the Bergholt goal.
