Football Review

Team of the Week: U14C

Player of the Week: Harry Longbottom

Yet again the rain fell Saturday morning and continued on and off throughout the day. This was the biggest block of the half term with 6 matches playing at home, and 11 away at Harrow.

It was especially pleasing to field an E team at the Under 14 age group and despite a 5-0 loss, the boys enjoyed he occasion a Di am sure will come back stronger in their next match. The U14D team lost 2-1 with Charlie McGrigor scoring another goal for the team. The C’s managed to win their game 2-1 withHarry Longbottom the star of the show in goal - he made a number of saves which he really had no right to make! The B’s played well but could not find a reply to Harrow’s solitary goal, and the A team played their best football of the season so far but ended up losing 3-2 to a strong Harrow side.

In the under 15-year group the D team lost 3-1, and the C’s had a cracking game finally losing 3-2. Mr Fung’s B team continued their good form from the previous week by thrashing their opponent 4-0. This leaves them 3rd in the league, a point behind the joint leaders. The ‘A’ team lost 2-1 in a tight encounter; Berkhamsted dominated the game but failed to covert more than one of their numerous chances.

The U16C fought bravely but lost five goals to two. This was a valiant effort from the self-proclaimed ‘Flair’ and Mr Hockedy commented that the boys did the school proud. The B’s were unbeaten up to the weekend but came up against a strong Harrow team who have now leapfrogged into first position in the league. Mr Falder’s A team are quietly making progress and earned a point in a physical 1-1 draw.

Onto the senior teams and the news did not get any better. Out of the 5 teams playing only the 2nd XI could muster up any kind of result. They managed to win 5-3 with Jamie Woodley scoring a hatrick. The 1st XI had a bad afternoon losing 6-2 in a game which Harrow dominated. Goals from Kyran Worrell and Nathan Walmsley gave Berkhamsted a glimmer of hope but it was not to be.

After the half term break Berkhamsted take on new boys into the league Epsom.
