Action v Charlton Athletic and Newport


It was another busy weekend for the Trust supported football programme.

The under 13s travelled to Charlton where they faced a tough but enjoyable game against good opposition.  The Journey may have played a factor, but the Bath boys made a terrible start by conceding 3 quick and sloppy goals.  However, they acclimatised to the quicker and more physical aspect of this standard of opposition and gave a good account of themselves.  Leo and Owen both scored two with Sam grabbing the other one, the team eventually going down 7-5, but having given a good account of themselves.

Mean while the Under 10s, 11s and 12s hosted Newport County at Lasndown.

U12 report By D Andrews:

On a blustery morning in Landsdown, the under 12 BWB team took on their Welsh counterparts. We started quite well but conceded first, so after the first quarter we were all a bit disappointed to be 1-0 down. Going into the second quarter, we knew we had to work hard and put in a few more challenges. Our hard work paid off as we scored a goal from our pressing of the keeper. After this quarter, we were happy with our progress in the match. Going into the 3rdquarter, we felt more confident, but that hope was destroyed by a goal from Newport. But then, our hope regained from a great team goal. For our last quarter, we felt satisfied with our work rate but then a ‘lucky’ goal with a lot of help from the wind put Newport 3-2 up. After a few last ditch attempts, unfortunately we were unable to score and Newport held onto the win.

Goal Scorers: Jibril and Woody

Main Points from the Match:

  • Try not to stop working until the end-never give up
  • Try to be physical (especially with the harder teams)
  • We don’t have as much time on the ball, so look for passes before you get the ball instead of dribbling through players.
