Results – 1st December
Our results from last Saturday…
Men’s 1 won 5-0 away to Leicester 2
Goals: Ben Sleeman (3), Ben Langdown & Jon Cooper
Men’s 2 lost 0-9 at home to Rugby & East Warwickshire 4
Player of the Match was Matt Cook
“Men’s 2 had a close fought game with Rugby & East Warwickshire 4, which included a number of highlights…
There were a grand total of seven U16s in the squad including a number of debutants. With the scene set, everybody played well, battling the opposition for every inch of the pitch. Had it not been for the lack of a regular goalkeeper (applications now being accepted for the 2nd half of the season) and to state the obvious, playing that little bit better, the result would surely have gone our way.
Massive thanks to Gary Pedler for stepping up to goalkeeping duties again, and Matt Cook for a combative Man of the Match performance.”
Mixed A lost 0-4 away to Loughborough Carillon Falcons (U)
Badgers won 5-4 away to Northampton Saints 1
Goals: May Townsley (2), James Parry (2) & Owen Arthur
“What a game! Northampton Saints came out strong this week and caught us off guard, by half time they managed to score 1 goal from the edge of the D and then they had a re-bound on the post which they sneaked in, to finish the first half 2-1 down.
We came out in the second half more determined to pull it back, but within 5 minutes Saints scored another, so from this point we took control and started scoring, and the end score was 5-4 to us. Well played to James Parry who had his first game with Badgers and managed to score 2 for us, also May Townsley scored 2 and Owen Arthur 1. GK Megan Astbury did some great saves this week to keep the end score in our favour. Well played all, great game!”
