The new season is well underway and it is pleasing to report that our latest team, Under 9, is lying second in their league, having won four of their first six games. Our Under 12 team is finding it tough going following their promotion and is looking for more players, so let me know if you have a budding Gareth, Barry or Gabby Agbonlahor (sorry I am biased!)
The two older age groups are progressing well with the Under 13 team mid-table and the Under 14 team blazing the trail at the top of their league. The possibility of a Bergholt Team in the A League next season looks good – but as Stuart Hill, our manager, says – it is a marathon not a sprint. He is clearly over the moon at the moment though!
Our kick-off barbecue provided a great curtain raiser to the season – raising funds for the cause. The Under 14 team will be carrying on the theme for the season by selling burgers and sausages at their home games at Orpen Field – so why not come along, cheer the lads on and tuck in. Hot drinks and other solid and liquid refreshments are always available as well.
The next social event is our traditional bowling evening for the boys on the day of the last game before Christmas. This falls on 16 December and is free to all playing members. More details are obtainable from your manager.
Please continue to support the club and offers of sponsorship on any basis are welcome, be it our awards evening, kit or even a donation!
